The Flintstones' New Neighbors is a 30-minute episode that was part of "The Flintstone Special" limited-run prime time television revival of The Flintstones produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions which aired on NBC on September 26, 1980.
In 1981, the episode was nominated for an Emmy Award as Outstanding Individual Achievement - Animated Programming.
The Flintstones meet their strange next-door neighbors, The Frankenstones.
The Frankenstone family featured on this special was a different version of the Frankenstones from the episode "Fred and Barney Meet the Frankenstones" of The New Fred and Barney Show.
The new Frankenstone family members are:
- Frank Frankenstone
- Oblivia Frankenstone, his wife
- Hidea Frankenstone, their daughter
- Frankenstub "Stubby" Frankenstone, their son
A friendship develops between the Flintstones and the Frankenstones, not unlike the rivalry that would be depicted later between Fred and Frank on The Flintstone Comedy Show.
