The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy (フリントストーン Furintosutōn: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy?) is a 1991 Platform video game developed by Taito for the Nintendo Entertainment System based on The Flintstones TV series. Taito later released another Flintstones game for the NES titled The Flintstones: Surprise at Dinosaur Peak.

Gameplay[edit]

The gameplay is preceded by a short movie which sets the stage. A man from the 30th century named Dr. Butler kidnaps Dino and Hoppy, the two pets that belong to Fred Flintstone, Barney Rubble, and their respective families. Fred's alien friend, Gazoo, lost parts of his time machine due to Dr. Butler. Gazoo is only visible to Fred and not to anyone else.

With each stage Fred completes, he earns back another piece of the time machine, and Gazoo welds together the pieces progressively. Throughout the stages, Fred runs into Wilma, Barney, Betty, as well as George Jetson in the future stage. Fred has to defeat a boss at each stage. At the end of the map, he gets the last piece and travels to the future, where he has to defeat Dr. Butler .[2]
