The Flintstones: Prime-Time Specials Collection - Volume 1

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 10/20/12

This collection has two Flintstones movies that aired in "primetime". In the first one, Fred, Wilma, Barney and Betty dress up in costumes to go on "Make a Deal or Don't" and win a trip to Rocksylvania. It's supposed to be a former castle for Rockula, with costumed hotel workers who pretend to be monsters, but they soon find out that the real Rockula and Frankenstone are alive and living there. Then Rockula decides to take Wilma as his bride!  It's a cute cartoon that kids should enjoy from 1979.

The second movie is a little better, and seems more modern (Bam-Bam and Pebbles are teens and the animation is better), but it's from 1978. Go figure! Barney coaches his son's little league team, which makes Fred very jealous, so he starts another team. Pebbles wants to play, too, but Fred tells her that girls can't play baseball! Of course, she proves him wrong. This one had a lot of humor, particularly with Wilma's sarcastic remarks.

There aren't any extras or features, unfortunately! This would make a good gift for any family with kids.
