Meet ‘The Flintstones’ On MeTV

America’s first family of animated comedy debuts on MeTV Monday, September 30…fifty-nine years to the day from its very first telecast!

t’s Yabba-Dabba-Doo time on MeTV when the seminal animated favorite The Flintstones joins the network’s weeknight lineup with back-to-back episodes at 6:00 pm and 6:30 pm ET/PT starting Monday, September 30. The series will begin in order with the original TV pilot, titled “The Flintstone Flyer.”

When The Flintstones premiered on September 30, 1960, it shook up television like a slab of dinosaur ribs slapped on the side of a car. Never before had there been a primetime, cartoon sitcom. The show follows the daily adventures of Fred & Wilma Flintstone and their neighbors and best friends, Barney & Betty Rubble, in the prehistoric town of Bedrock. In later seasons, kids Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm joined the cast. The show’s clever juxtaposition of modern family concerns and everyday life against the backdrop of the Stone Age made The Flintstones an enduring cultural phenomenon still part of American life today.
