Alternate Versions

The film was dubbed twice in Hungary: first in 1978, then in 2006, in conjunction with the two separate dubs produced for the actual series. Like the show itself, the film's entire dialogue was rendered in playful verse with constant rhymes, alliterations and puns. Since the series was popular with Hungarian adults, the plot was also rewritten to focus on drug trafficking rather than a simple world domination scheme. The Green Goose (called "Zöldfejü Keselyü" or "Green-Headed Vulture") in the dub is a drug lord who wants to overdose the world on cocaine. The title was changed to "Frédi, a csempész-rendész" or "Freddie the Smuggler-Copper". Another quirk of the original dub was the complete replacement of the American music and sound effects. The second dub kept these intact. See more »

The 1994 big screen version of "The Flintstones" was undeniably atrocious, so if you want a decent "Flintstones" movie, then "The Man Called Flintstone" works (if only marginally). The plot has secret agent Rock Slang, who just happens to be Fred Flinstone's doppelganger, getting injured and replaced with Fred. This not only complicates Fred's vacation plans, but makes him the target of spies Ali and Bobo (fortunately for Fred, these guys are beyond incompetent). In the end, Fred's big mission is to stop master criminal Green Goose from destroying the world.

Okay, so this movie won't challenge your mind or anything (and I guess that it does go overboard at times), but at least it's not a travesty of the show (I can't say the same for the 1994 movie). This one passes.
