The Flintstones information

Harvey Korman as The Great Gazoo on FlintstonesIt wasn’t the first animated series in primetime but The Flintstones was the first to last more than two seasons. It was also the longest-running one, until it was surpassed by The Simpsons in 1995/96.

Debuting in 1960, The Flintstones ran for six seasons on ABC and was originally geared towards adults. Over time, the show’s humor and storylines became aimed more at a younger audience. By the sixth season, it was clear that the show was running out of steam and, as often happens, the producers added a new character to try to breathe new life into the TV series (the show was still cancelled after April 1966).

On The Brady Bunch, it was Cousin Oliver. In The Flintstones, it was The Great Gazoo (Harvey Korman), a short alien from the future who’s been exiled to Earth. Possessing magic-like powers, he tries to help Fred and Barney and this often leads to lots of trouble.

The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show

This spin-off of The Flintstones revolves around the teenage adventures of Pebbles Flintstones (Sally Struthers), the daughter of Fred (Alan Reed) and Wilma (Jean Vander Pyl), and Bamm-Bamm Rubble (Jay North), the adopted son of Barney (Mel Blanc) and Betty (Gay Hartwig). Pebbles is always enthusiastic and can be counted on to convince Bamm-Bamm and their mutual friends -- astrologically obsessed Wiggy Rockstone (Gay Hartwig), down-to-earth Penny Pillar (Mitzi McCall), and brainy Moonrock Crater (Lenny Weinrib) -- to join her in one crazy Bedrock scheme after another. Whether it's catching a widely-feared snorkosaurus for the local Sea Rock World, testing a super fuel in the Grand Prix, safeguarding Bamm-Bamm's dogosaurus Snoots from the clutches of the local dog catcher, training to become an artist or witch, or saving Fred's job at the gravel pit. While Pebbles' intentions are always good, she and the gang often end up causing more problems than they solve.
