Happy 50th Anniversary The Flintstones!!
The Flintstones cartoon series celebrated its 50th anniversary and the Google search engine honored the iconic 1960s stone-age family with a “Google Doodle” on its front page.
The show ran from 1960 to 1966 and featured the voices of Alan Reed as Fred Flintstone, Jean Vander Pyl as his wife Wilma, Bea Benaderet as their neighbor Betty Rubble and Mel Blanc, the voice of Bugs Bunny, as her husband and Fred Flinstone’s pal Barney.
The series spurred several television specials, as well as the 1994 movie The Flintstones, which starred John Goodman, Elizabeth Perkins, Rosie O’Donnel and Rick Moranis. The movie helped launch the career of Halle Berry, who played a sexy secretary.
