Celebrating 60 years of the Flintsones with a complete series release this Fall!

Looking forward to this!  I hope they don't screw it up, but they did a great job on Jonny Quest and The Jetsons, so I think it will be good!  I am not sure why they would put that new Flinstones Wrestling thing on the set, but glad they are including A Man called Flintstone.  I hope the right end credits are restored and all of the great sponsor commercials and bumpers are included too!



Hot Dog day

Happy 77th Birthday to Bobby!
