Overview

The program follows the adventures of Fred, Barney, Wilma, Betty and Dino as children.[1]

Episodes

It featured the following segments:

  • The Flintstone Kids: The "main" story of the show. Either it would be the length of a full episode or be split into two different stories.
  • Flintstone Funnies: Freddy, Barney, Wilma and Betty dreaming of exciting fantasy/adventures. These were dropped in the second season.
  • Captain Caveman and Son: The adventures of Captain Caveman with his son, Cavey Jr. This segment was actually a "show within a show" whereby Captain Caveman and Son is a TV show watched by the main characters, with the "fourth wall" being broken frequently.
  • Dino's Dilemmas: This segment featured the adventures and misadventures of Freddy's pet dinosaur Dino.
