Chronology

The Flintstone Kids is a Saturday morning animated series and a spin-off of The Flintstones . The Flintstones Kids aired from September 6, 1986 to September 3, 1988 on ABC and as part of the weekday/weekend morning programming block The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera. The show is non-canon, as it disregards the etsablished continuity from the original series, in which Fred and Barney met Wilma and Betty as adults.

Overview[edit]

The program follows the adventures of Fred, Barney, Wilma, Betty and Dino as children as they deal with their childhood with their friends Nate Slate, Philo Quartz, and Dreamchip Gemstone while also contending with their bully Rocky Ratrock and his group consisting of Tar Pit, Flab Slab, Janet Granite, and Rocky's dog Stalagbite.[1]

Segments[edit]

This series featured the following segments:

  • The Flintstone Kids: The "main" story of the show. Either it would be the length of a full episode or be split into two different stories.
  • Flintstone Funnies: Freddy, Barney, Wilma and Betty dreaming of exciting fantasy/adventures. These were dropped in the second season.
  • Dino's Dilemmas: This segment featured the adventures and misadventures of Freddy's pet dinosaur Dino.
  • Captain Caveman and Son: The adventures of Captain Caveman with his son, Cavey Jr. This segment was actually a "show within a show" whereby Captain Caveman and Son is a TV show watched by the main characters, with the "fourth wall" being broken frequently.
