Not The Flinstones finest hour (or more precisely, an hour and twenty-seven minutes), but I thought we’d take a moment to acknowledge the 45th anniversary of the Hanna Barbera feature film, The Man Called Flintstone. I gathered together some material (including several rarely seen newspaper ads, below) to remind us of how the original prime time series (and feature) were initially aimed at adult audiences – so perhaps Seth MacFarlane’s forthcoming revamp won’t be so far off, after all. Or so we would hope.
Anyone have any particularly fond (or painful) memories of this film? Let us know in the comments section below.
