Hanna-Barbera's All-Star Comedy Ice Revue is a 1978 live-action/animated television special produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions which premiered on CBS on January 13, 1978. It was taped at Bakersfield Civic Auditorium in Bakersfield, California.
A celebrity roast honoring Fred Flintstone on his 48th birthday featuring costumed Hanna-Barbera characters such as Yogi Bear, Jabberjaw, Huckleberry Hound, Scooby-Doo, The Banana Splits, Hong Kong Phooey, Quick Draw McGraw, Snagglepuss, Wally Gator and The Hair Bear Bunch. The show is co-hosted by Roy Clark and Bonnie Franklin which includes special guest stars The Sylvers, the comedy antics of British duo Course & Young (Mike Course and Bob Young), the Fenton children (Steven, Robin, Jack, Lisa and Todd), Sashi Kuchiki, the Ice Capettes and a special appearance by The Skatebirds (whose Saturday morning series was airing concurrently on CBS at the time). Throughout the special, the live-action celebrity roast sequences are interspersed with animated segments featuring Fred and Barney.
When Roy and Bonnie announce the guest of honor, Fred and Barney are at home watching the event on TV when Fred suddenly realizes he was under the misunderstanding that it 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 a costumed Fred finally arrives, the guests perform a "Happy Birthday" salute.
