The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy is a 1991 platform video game by Taito for the Nintendo Entertainment System based on the animated series The Flintstones. Taito later released another Flintstones game for the NES titled The Flintstones: Surprise at Dinosaur Peak.
The gameplay is preceded by a short cutscene which sets the stage. A man from the 30th century named Dr. Butler kidnaps Fred Flintstone's pet Dino and Barney's pet Hoppy. Fred's alien friend, The Great Gazoo, lost parts of his time machine due to Dr. Butler. The Great Gazoo is visible only to Fred and to nobody else (a slight change from the series where Barney, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm could also see him).
With each stage Fred completes, he earns back another piece of the time machine, and Gazoo welds together the pieces progressively. Throughout the stages, Fred runs into Wilma, Barney, Betty, as well as George Jetson in the future stage. Fred has to defeat a boss at each stage. At the end of the map, he gets the last piece and travels to the future, where he has to defeat Dr. Butler.

In 1992, the Taiwanese publisher J.Y. Company released a hack of this game. In an attempt to pass it off as the supposed seventh installment in the Super Mario series, the title was changed to 7 Grand Dad (stylized as 7 GRAND DAD, referred to as Primitive Mario VII (Chinese: 原始瑪莉VII; pinyin: Yuánshǐ Mǎlì VII)), placing Mario's head on Fred Flintstone's body. It was widely available throughout Russia. It was also released as part of a 7-in-1 bootleg game ROM cartridge. 7 Grand Dad became an internet meme in 2015.
