Just when you thought TV was finally "civilized," it's back to the Stone Ages for a brand new series featuring the entire Flintstone gang! Join the fun in the town of Bedrock with this ... See full summary »
This was, without question, the most unexpected cartoon series of all time. Fred and Barney had been out to pasture since "The Flintstones", but their nadir was to come when some genius decided to partner them with a long-forgotten peripheral character from the "Lil' Abner" comics of the late 40s/early 50's...a strangely phallic entity called a "Shmoo". What exactly a Shmoo *IS* has been a topic of debate for decades...a bowling pin with legs and whiskers? A walking bartlett pear? Nobody knows for certain, but the bigger mystery is how it ended up in the stone age and chumming around with the Flintstones.
Ill-conceived, flatly animated series which perfectly demonstrates how tragic Saturday morning fare had become by the late 70s.
