Episodes[edit]

Pilot (1959)[edit]

# Title Animated by Original air date
Pilot "The Flagstones" Kenneth Muse May 1994 (on Cartoon Network)
First released on The Flintstones: The Collector's Edition' on VHS in 1994, it made its first television air in May 1994, it aired on Cartoon Network, and on Boomerang in November 2006. It was released on DVD in 2001 and again in 2004. Note: This was the original pilot episode for 'The Flintstones', but was never shown with the original series. It was actually a 90 second "demo reel" (with grease pencil marks still visible on the film), designed to sell the series to potential advertisers in the winter of 1959, depicting a scene from what would eventually become the episode "The Swimming Pool". Daws Butler provided the voices of Fred and Barney (he would reprise the role of Barney in Season 2 episodes 1, 2, 5, 6 and 9 when Mel Blanc was unavailable to provide the voice at that time), June Foray was Betty (her appearance was somewhat redesigned for the actual series), and Jean Vander Pyl was Wilma (the only actor from the pilot to regularly reprise their role for the actual series). The pilot was re-voiced for the Cartoon Crackups DVD release for unknown reasons with Henry Corden as Fred, Frank Welker as Barney, Tress MacNeille as Wilma, and Betty Jean Ward as Betty. All other releases of the pilot use the original voice track.

Season 1 (1960–1961)[edit]

# Total Title Animated by Original air date[1]
1 1 "The Flintstone Flyer" Carlo Vinci. September 30, 1960 (1960-09-30)
Fred feigns illness so he and Barney can get out of taking their wives to the opera, as the night coincides with a Bowling Championship. Using Barney's home-made prehistoric helicopter as a means of escape, the two then join their bowling team for the tournament. They almost get away with their scheme, until loose-lipped Barney gives away their night's activities by using a fake mustache he and Fred used earlier to try to fool their wives at the bowling alley. Notes: This was the series premiere. On this and many other early episodes, Wilma and Betty are depicted as domestically abusive wives. In later episodes, this happens only occasionally (those others included "Peek-a-Boo Camera" and "The Buffalo Convention" for example); Most episodes, however, usually show them as good-natured, but a little short-tempered. This is the first episode that Betty was voiced by Bea Benaderet. Barney sounds a little different than in later episodes, with a nasally-speaking voice instead of his normal voice.
2 2 "Hot Lips Hannigan" Kenneth Muse. October 7, 1960 (1960-10-07)
Believing he has made Wilma and Betty disappear through magic, Fred capitalizes on his newfound freedom by taking Barney to a nightclub, the Rockland, where an old friend, trumpeter Hot Lips Hannigan, is performing. Fred sings a song (the Saints). The jazz is cool until the wives show up, under the guise of two "hep chicks," to teach their wayward husbands a lesson. Hannigan tries to woo the girls with a sexily intoned, "Skiddly-wah-wah-WAH . . . contact!" to which Wilma responds by saying, "Here's some contact," and smashing him in the head. Note: This is one of two episodes in which Fred has the ability to sing, the other being "The Girls' Night Out." Somehow, Wilma and Betty still think that Fred can't sing even though someone else provides his singing voice in these two episodes instead. After the start of season two, Fred no longer has a singing ability.
3 3 "The Swimming Pool" Kenneth Muse. October 14, 1960 (1960-10-14)
First episode produced; incorporated scenes from "The Flagstones" pilot—Fred and Barney build a joint swimming pool in their back yards, leading to fights before Fred's surprise birthday party. Notes: Bill Thompson is the police sergeant's voice and Hal Smith does the voice of the grumpy next door neighbor. (A brief snippet of this episode, newly animated, shows up later in a Jetsons episode, "Elroy's Mob"; a classmate of Elroy's watches it on his wristwatch TV, before the teacher catches him at it and confiscates it.)
4 4 "No Help Wanted" Kenneth Muse. October 21, 1960 (1960-10-21)
Fred uses his influence with a business friend to obtain a job for Barney, who becomes a furniture repossessor. To the dismay of both, Barney's first assignment is to repossess Fred's television set! Unwilling to betray his friend, Barney pays off Fred's delinquent television bill with his first paycheck. Notes: Frank Nelson provide additional voices. This is the first episode that has no laugh track in recent broadcasts. Other episodes without a laugh track in recent broadcasts are: Season One's "The Split Personality," "The Monster from the Tar Pits," "The Babysitters," "The Girls' Night Out," "The Snorkasarus Hunter." Season Four's "Son of Rockzilla," and Season Five's "Pebbles' Birthday Party" and "Moonlight and Maintenance." On the DVD releases of the episodes: Season One's "The Split Personality," "The Girls' Night Out" and Season Five's "Moonlight and Maintenance" have the laugh tracks restored on them. Also, this is the first episode with Dino making an appearance.
5 5 "The Split Personality" Carlo Vinci. October 28, 1960 (1960-10-28)
After being hit on the head with a bottle, Fred contracts amnesia and becomes an Englishman called "Frederick." Notes: A later episode several years later, "Monster Fred," would be slightly based on this episode. Betty Rubble gets very cross and angry when she cleans up after Barney. Next time, Barney should have cleaned up after himself.
6 6 "The Monster from the Tar Pits" Kenneth Muse. November 4, 1960 (1960-11-04)
A Hollyrock film company goes on location in Bedrock to film its new feature "The Monster from the Tar Pits," and gullible Fred is enlisted as stand-in for star Gary Granite. But Fred's real problems begin when Wilma and Betty audition for roles in the film and end up going ga-ga upon meeting movie stars Rock Pile and Wednesday Tuesday. Note: This episode would be reworked several years later in the episode "Son of Rockzilla". Other episodes where Fred gets the acting bug are "Hawaiian Escapade", "Fred Meets Hercurcock" and "The Return of Stony Curtis."
7 7 "The Babysitters" Ed Love. November 11, 1960 (1960-11-11)
Fred and Barney agree to babysit Wilma's nephew, Egbert, which makes them miss a chance to go and see the fights. A blackout of the event in their area prompts them to bring Egbert with them to their friend Joe Rockhead's house so they can watch the fight. Notes: Paul Frees and Daws Butler provide several voices.

This is the first episode that Barney Rubble starts laughing and crying with Fred. This is also the first episode that Barney says "I hate to see a grown man cry."

This is the first of several false alarms in which Fred thinks that Wilma is going to have/and or had a baby in a episode. It happens again in an episode in Season 2 and a third one in Season 3. This episode is also the first appearance of Joe Rockhead.
8 8 "At the Races" Carlo Vinci. November 18, 1960 (1960-11-18)
To finance their dream of opening a pool hall, Fred and Barney visit the dinosaur racetrack where Fred bets his entire paycheck on a long shot. To cover for gambling, Fred pretends to have been beaten by a robber and tells Wilma that he has lost his check. When the longshot pays off, Fred and Barney are initially elated, but they quickly realize their problems are only beginning. Hal Smith provides the voice of Fred's Boss. Notes: Betty is absent in this episode.
9 9 "The Engagement Ring" Don Patterson. November 25, 1960 (1960-11-25)
Barney decides to surprise Betty with a belated engagement ring, which he gives to Fred for safekeeping. But Wilma discovers the ring and assumes it is a gift for her. Not wanting to shatter her illusions, Fred decides to buy a second ring, but doesn't have the cash. He cons Barney into going several rounds with a boxing champ in order to win a $500 prize. Frank Nelson provides the voice of the "Buddy-Buddy Jewelers" manager; Bill Thompson is a customer.
10 10 "Hollyrock, Here I Come" George Nicholas. December 2, 1960 (1960-12-02)
Wilma and Betty win a trip to Hollyrock from a television contest. Finding themselves lonely and bored, Fred and Barney take vacations from work and follow them out. When Wilma is "discovered," Fred muscles his own way into the world of television to bring her back. Jerry Mann does the voice of the TV director.
11 11 "The Golf Champion" Carlo Vinci. December 9, 1960 (1960-12-09)
Fred's victory in The Loyal Order of Dinosaurs golf tournament is soured when club president Barney withholds his trophy for nonpayment of club dues. Fred retaliates by demanding that Barney return every item he has borrowed over the years. The stalemate continues until Wilma and Betty manage to bring their husbands back together — again. Note: This episode marks the first time, John Stephenson provided voices for The Flintstones; he is The Golf commentator, Joe Rockhead and Left Foot Charlie.
12 12 "The Sweepstakes Ticket" Dick Lundy. December 16, 1960 (1960-12-16)
Barney hides the sweepstakes ticket he and Fred have bought in the lining of an old coat, which Betty subsequently gives to a passing hobo. While the boys try to recover the ticket, convinced it is the winning one, Wilma and Betty have their own winning ticket stashed away at the Rubbles' house.
13 13 "The Drive-in" Ed Love. December 23, 1960 (1960-12-23)
Fed up with their jobs, Fred and Barney secretly plan to buy a drive-in restaurant, but then Fred has to deal with a suspicious Wilma, who wants to know why two young girls (carhops seeking jobs) are calling for him, and what the messages regarding two tons of dino-burger meat mean. This episode contains the song "Burger on a Bun (The Car Hop Song)," sung by two waitresses; when they phone Fred at home, he humorously tells Wilma that they're "Charlie" and "Irving." Ginny Tyler voices one of the carhops while Nancy Wible voices the other.
14 14 "The Prowler" George Nicholas, Kenneth Muse. December 30, 1960 (1960-12-30)
With a prowler on the loose in Bedrock, Betty decides to take judo lessons to protect herself. When Wilma wants to take lessons also, Fred ridicules the idea, arguing that one glimpse of a prowler would send her running in fear. To prove his point, Fred poses as the prowler and sneaks into the Rubble household, on the same night the real prowler shows up. Note: In the third season episode, "The Kissing Burglar" is loosely based on this episode.
15 15 "The Girls' Night Out" Don Patterson. January 6, 1961 (1961-01-06)
Fred and Barney decide to treat their wives to a night out, at an amusement park. Fred cuts a song at a recording booth as a souvenir but accidentally misplaces the record. It is later discovered by a group of teens who pass it along to a DJ, and Fred is suddenly transformed into unwitting rock star "Hi-Fye."

The wives then suspect that their husbands are slipping out to meet other women.

When Fred discovers a bag containing $86,000, his dreams of being a wealthy man finally seem to be coming true. But the money has been stolen from the bank, so Wilma and Betty force Fred and Barney to return the money to the bank, and unwittingly set them up as the primary suspects! The wives set a trap for the real culprits and Fred ends up saving the day.
18 18 "The Snorkasaurus Hunter" Ed Love. January 27, 1961 (1961-01-27)
Would-be hunter Fred convinces Wilma and the Rubbles to spend their vacation time in the mountains, hunting for snorkasaurus. Fred is successful in his hunt, but he gets more than he bargained for when the wives insist that the snorkasaurus be taken home as their new pet, Dino. Note: While this episode shows how they got Dino, he appeared previously on "Arthur Quarry's Dance Class", which was being made at around the same time but aired first. Also, Dino appeared earlier on "No Help Wanted."
19 19 "The Hot Piano" George Nicholas. February 3, 1961 (1961-02-03)
To commemorate his 10th wedding anniversary (which he only remembers because it falls on "Trash Day"), Fred wants to buy Wilma a Stoneway piano. He finds a hot deal—ultimately too hot — from a shady, cash-only businessman named "88 Fingers Louie." Daws Butler provides additional voices.
20 20 "The Hypnotist" Ed Love. February 10, 1961 (1961-02-10)

When industrial tycoon J.L. Gotrocks decides he wants to rub shoulders with the common people, dead-ringer Fred is hired to fill-in for him in the boardroom. Fred savors his new lifestyle at the country club, but the plan begins to unravel when J.L. demonstrates little tolerance for the common folk. Note: This is the first episode to feature "multiple Freds". A few years later, for example, "King for a Night" would use a similar story line.
23 23 "The Astra' Nuts" Carlo Vinci. March 3, 1961 (1961-03-03)
Thinking they are undergoing an examination for insurance, Fred and Barney mistakenly sign up for a three-year stint in the Army!

Fred's old friend Gus Gravel (voiced by Willard Waterman) invites the Flintstones and Rubbles to his seaside hotel for an all-expense-paid vacation.

Gus finally confesses the truth to his four new guests, adding further bad news in that a huge convention is about to arrive, and Gus needs the Flintstones and Rubbles to stay on and work as hotel staff!

Donning full drag—including wigs, dresses, and plucked-out eyebrows—Fred and Barney take their places in the contest to prepare their "Upside-Down Flint/Rubble Bubble Cake," but one of the guys' carelessness (specifically (and accidentally) using the wrong flour brand) could jeopardize the win of the grand prize.
26 26 "The Good Scout" Dick Lundy, George Nicholas, Carlo Vinci. March 24, 1961 (1961-03-24)

When he finally loses the weight, the overeaters group still will not let him go back to his old ways. Bern Bennett is the emcee's voice.

Happy birthday!"
5 33 "Fred Flintstone Woos Again" Kenneth Muse, Ed Aardal. October 13, 1961 (1961-10-13)
In an episode that smacks suspiciously similar to an I Love Lucy episode about a decade (or less) earlier, Fred takes Wilma on a second honeymoon, only to find out that the judge who originally married them was unlicensed.

During the Rubbles' stay, Barney causes so many problems for Fred that he finally loses his patience and blows his top with Barney. Meanwhile, Wilma is angry at Betty and begins to fight with her.

Meanwhile, Wilma and Betty try to cure the both of them of their practical jokes.
22 50 "Operation: Barney" Don Patterson. February 16, 1962 (1962-02-16)
Fred and Barney play hooky from work to see a ball game, but plans are foiled when Barney must report to his company's nurse, who, after Fred fixes it so Barney's condition looks "serious," is alarmed enough to send him to the hospital. The hospital sequence is extremely funny, beginning with the arrival of a bespectacled Viennese specialist, Dr. Schliprock, whom Fred and Barney lead into a broom closet so that Fred can take his place. Fred's "operation" on Barney principally takes the form of applying a wrench to his nose and twisting with all his might, after which the patient's body temperature is, incredibly, normal. After finally escaping from the hospital, it's discovered that the ball game was actually scheduled for that evening – not that afternoon, as the guys had thought – and that Barney's boss had tickets for Fred and Barney to go. But because Barney was "sick," he gave the tickets away to someone else.
