It’s Yabba-Dabba-Goo time when baby Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm make their MeTV debut in milestone episodes of The Flintstones airing this November on America’s number-one rated and distributed multicast network. The Flintstones is part of MeTV’s weeknight line-up with back-to-back episodes airing at 6:00 pm and 6:30 pm ET/PT, in addition to a two-hour block on Sunday mornings. Since its debut on MeTV on September 30, 2019, The Flintstones has quickly become a MeTV audience favorite.
The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm characters joined the series during the show’s third and fourth seasons respectively. Fun Fact: Originally, the plan was for Fred and Wilma’s child to be a boy, until Hanna Barbera received a call from the merchandising division and realized that by making their child a girl, the company could create more lucrative toys. Three million dollars in toy sales were made in the first three months following Pebbles’ birth.
The Flintstones follows the daily adventures of Fred & Wilma Flintstone and their neighbors and best friends, Barney & Betty Rubble, in the prehistoric town of Bedrock. Originally debuting in 1960, 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.
