Hanna-Barbera's All-Star Comedy Ice Revue is a 60-minute live-action/animated television special produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions which aired on CBS on Friday, January 13, 1978. It was taped at Bakersfield Civic Auditorium in Bakersfield, California in December 1977.
A celebrity roast for Fred Flintstone on his 48th birthday featuring Yogi Bear, Jabberjaw, Huckleberry Hound, Scooby-Doo, The Banana Splits, Hong Kong Phooey, Quick Draw McGraw, Snagglepuss and The Hair Bear Bunch.
The show is hosted by Roy Clark and Bonnie Franklin with special guest stars The Sylvers and The Skatebirds and featuring Course & Young, the Fentons, Sashi Kuchiki, the Ice Capettes, and is interspersed with animated segments featuring Fred and Barney.
When Roy and Bonnie announce the guest of honor, Fred is at home watching the event on TV with the misunderstanding that the special was scheduled for the following night. As Fred and Barney rush off to the ice arena, the show continues with musical numbers, ice displays including a comedy team, precision skating, disco-on-ice, jazz skating and an acrobatic number with fiery torches. When Fred finally arrives, the guests perform a "Happy Birthday" salute.
