After CBS gave the Flintstone offspring their own show in 1971-72, the network approved the return of their elders on their first Saturday morning series since the 1960s repeats ended.
Betty had a new voice, but the situations were similar, only now Fred and Barney meddled more in the affairs of their grown-up children and their friends.
The latter group included the same members seen on Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm, such as Moonrock – who participated in drag races with buddy Bamm-Bamm in their Cave Buggy against the bad Bronco Bunch (Zonk, Stub, and Noodles) – and Schleprock, a walking, whining purple lump of a man whose full face was hidden from view by an oversized hat.
The series ran a half hour less in its short-lived second season and sported the new title The Flintstones Show.
