The one and only The Flintstones, is heading to syndicated television happening on September 30th @ 6pm ET/PT with back-to-back episodes on what will be the show’s 59th anniversary.

The Flintstones is the original primetime animated sitcom that was produced by Hanna-Barbera starting in the 1960s. The series followed The Flintstones family in the town of Bedrock, including Fred, Wilma, and Dino for a couple of seasons until Pebbles would join. The Flintstones live next door to Fred’s best buddy Barney and his family, the Rubbles including Betty and eventually including Bamm-Bamm.

The series was essentially a prehistoric take on The Honeymooners in that we got a parody of modern-life in the 1960s told in a prehistoric setting. A lot of the conventions that were presented in The Flintstones for an animated comedy are still seen today in the likes of The Simpsons and Family Guy.
