Today September 30th, the Flintstones turn 50! This Hanna-Barbara classic brought us Fred, Wilma, Pebbles and Dino, along with their lovable, good natured neighbour Barney and Betty Rubble and their freakishly strong son Bamm-Bamm. Besides memories of the show, such as Fred carrying their saber toothed tiger Baby Puss outside at the end of the credits; stirring cement in the beak of a pelican and the comic relief offered from said pelican; and the first conception of the Smart car; children's handgames "When Pebbles was a Baby, she went like this.." and Fruity Pebbles cereal; The Flintstones brought us some cutting edge, stone aged fashion! The stone necklaces and handkerchief hemlines, and cute hair accessories even inspired celebrities 50 years later,
Kelly Osbourne wore this Flintstones inspired dress to designer Jeremy Scott's show during New York Fashion Week February of this year. Now that's iconic! When you're still influencing pop culture 50 years later and 10 years after the last Flintstones-based program aired (excluding syndication of course)!
Happy Birthday, Yabba Dabba Doooo!
