The Flintstone Kids' "Just Say No" Special is a 1988 animated television special featuring The Flintstone Kids and produced by Hanna-Barbera which aired on ABC on September 15, 1988.


The Flintstone Kids learn the value of saying no to drugs as they set out to win tickets to the upcoming Michael Jackstone concert. Wilma is tempted to drift away from her usual playmates Freddy, Barney and Betty and join up with a gang of older kids who use drugs. Wilma resists the peer-pressure tactics of pre-teen pothead Stoney and instead seeks advice from her parents, who tell her that a real friend wouldn't offer her drugs. To the tune of La Toya Jackson's original composition, "Just Say No," Wilma, Freddy and the others establish their own "Just Say No" club.

Next, Freddy starts up a pet cleaning service to raise ticket money for the upcoming Michael Jackstone concert. When Freddy's get-rich-quick scheme falls through, the children realize that their only hope of obtaining tickets is to beat Stoney and his gang at the upcoming Riddle Rally. The program concludes with a version of Michael Jackson's hit song "Beat It," with the lyrics specially rewritten to convey an anti-drug theme. This special also features comments from then First Lady Nancy Reagan, Honorary Chair of the "Just Say No Foundation", who offers a message of support to children who have chosen to live a drug-free life.
