The Flintstone Kids is an American animated television series which aired from 1986 to 1988 on ABC, and as part of the weekday/weekend morning programming block, The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera, and produced by Hanna-Barbera. It is a spin-off of The Flintstones. The show disregards established continuity from the previous series, in which Fred and Barney met Wilma and Betty as adults.


The program follows the adventures of Fred, Barney, Wilma, Betty and Dino as children.[1]


It 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.
  • 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.
  • Dino's Dilemmas: This segment featured the adventures and misadventures of Freddy's pet dinosaur Dino.
