Flintstones Theme Song

“The Flintstone Theme: Rise and Shine” by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera

“Flintstones, Meet the Flintstones
They’re a modern stone age family
From the, town of Bedrock
They’re a page right out of history
Let’s ride, with the family down the street
Through the, courtesy of Fred’s two feet
When you’re, with the Flintstones
Have a yabba, dabba, doo time
A dabba doo time
We’ll have a gay, old time! “

Flintstones Tidbits – Yabba, dabba, doo

From the creative team of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, came the Flintstones, as the song says, a stone age family, but with very modern attitudes. We’d never seen anything like this, and besides, it was just plain fun.

Fred and Wilma Flintstone had a daughter, Pebbles, and their best friends, Barney and Betty Rubble adopted a son, Bamm Bamm. Fast forward in time and Pebbles and Bamm Bamm grow up, fall in love, get their own show…

Any resemblance to the “Honeymooners” was purely intentional.

The show spawned nine made for TV movies and two feature films which starred John Goodman as Fred Flintstone.Flintstones - Fred Flintstone - Wilma Flintstone
