Cartoon Discussion of the week (4/28/09) The Flintstones-"Flintstoe Flyer"and a PS
(Yeah, I'm kinda stealing another, child forum's thunder here, but as I'm kinda "persona non grata" there:0 well , and I see nothing wrong with this, sigh, here goes: More but of my own choices here. I AM a Flintstone fan, after all)[Kind of an auxiliary to the topc below at the link.]
The topic is here:
What can I say? A classic one....and one [ALONG with the "flooded house" season 2 episode, where the rubbles move in and Barney winds up eating the families pizza-eep-WHAT WAS that one's title, anyone here?] wherein the main cast [then Al Reed, mel Blanc, Jean VanderPyl and Bea Benadaret--NOT Gerry Johhnson like starting Season 4!] does ALL of the voices, bioth main and supporting, though it's mostly the gang here. And unlike "That70sMom" on the GAC counterpart, I LOVED the way that this ended! ['Cept I do fell a bit bad for Barney].
Oh..and "Take a pod-dah" and "no brainseither..."[no one even brough TAHT up! Classic one."]
[Don't worry, I plan to do my own choices.BTW I've been going through many internet sources PS saw saw a discussion above, the Bell Science UPA and WB shorts are seen on Prelinger Archive films. Hvaen't seen those in a long time..]
Going by memory of this one (though saw it a zillion times :-p), this one was an OK first-season episode, though still felt a bit "different" versus later episodes (where Mr. Slate's company and the Bedrock police, among others, have helicopters, making the "Barney Copter" redundant ;-) ).
Favorite part is probably where Fred and Barney lamely disguise themselves with broom bristles and cheesy fake German accents (and then blow their cover at the end).
Guess "Uncle Wiggly" is a much older book than we thought (if it was around in the Stone Age)! :-p
One of the better ones
Even though the writing follows the typical husband vs.wife sitcom formula, it does have an imaginative twist in method which lends to the enjoyable watch over and over again. On top of that, the whole thing was animated by one of my favorites, Carlo Vinci.
At the end, though, one wonders why the boys didn't fly off to a remote area where the girls couldn't follow instead of orbiting their neighborhood until pooped out.
