This is a speculative thread, but I think worthwhile to put out there. For Flinstones fans (I'm one, obviously), where do you see the future of the franchise? We see Scooby go into new iterations both live action and animated every few years; Yogi and the Jetsons will supposedly have new live action films, something Flintstones have already had their turn doing. The whole series is now out on DVD. The Flintstones on the Rocks impressed many of us (including me) but that was back in 2000 and never led to anything else and, in fact, seems to have been buried, one has to struggle even to find it. Maybe a better question is: Is there a future for the Flintstones? Or has the franchise gone extinct except for whatever merchandise or licensing value (cereal, vitamins) it has? If anyone thinks it has run out of gas, do you think it's because it legitimately ran its creative course, or has been mishandled in the years since the original series? Has anyone heard of any new Flintstones projects in the works, besides a Broadway play? Maybe I shouldn't say "besides." The Broadway plan just doesn't count to me, for some reason, but maybe that's wrong of me to think. I guess I'd hope for an animated future of some sort.
