The Flintstones' New Neighbors is a 30-minute episode that was part of "The Flintstone Special" limited-run prime time television revival of The Flintstones produced by Hanna-Barbera which aired on NBC on September 26, 1980.

In 1981, the episode was nominated for an Emmy Award as Outstanding Individual Achievement - Animated Programming.


The Flintstones meet their strange next-door neighbors, The Frankenstones.

The Frankenstones[edit]

The Frankenstone family featured on this special was a different version of the Frankenstones from the episode "Fred and Barney Meet the Frankenstones" of The New Fred and Barney Show.

The new Frankenstone family members are:

  • Frank Frankenstone
  • Oblivia Frankenstone, his wife
  • Hidea Frankenstone, their daughter
  • Frankenstub "Stubby" Frankenstone, their son

A friendship develops between the Flintstones and the Frankenstones, not unlike the rivalry that would be depicted later between Fred and Frank on The Flintstone Comedy Show.
