More Flintstones fun

Not as well written as the Flintstones, not enough episodes to develop the new characters


Fred and Barney’s kids are all grown-up!

Yabba-Dabba-Doozie!!!  Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm are growing up and going to high school in Bedrock.  Unfortunately, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm have inherited Fred and Barney’s ability at finding trouble.  As Pebbles continues to find trouble, Bamm-Bamm must get her out of it.

The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show aired on Saturday mornings from September 11, 1971 to January 1, 1972 for sixteen episodes on CBS.  The show has been released in a collected edition with four “The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show” from The Flintstones Comedy Hour.  The show features the voices of All in the Family star Sally Struthers as Pebbles, Dennis the Menace star Jay North as Bamm-Bamm, and Mel Blanc also comes back for a number of voices and Alan Reed continues to be the voice of Fred Flintstone along with Vander Pyl as Wilma.


Yes! Mick Jadestone and the Rolling Boulders!!!

When The Flintstones’ popular show ended, The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show began.  It was a Saturday morning show opposed to the Flintstones’ prime-time show and carried over many of the characters.  Oddly, Dino isn’t in the show (in my mind Dino’s species doesn’t survive more than 10 years and probably died…but he of course returned later), and Dino is replaced by a mammoth named Wooly.

The episodes don’t seem as developed as some of The Flintstones episodes and it feels more kid based.  By making Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm teens, it gets a bit of a Scooby-Doo feel.  Pebbles is a bit of a danger-prone Daphne or even a Lucille Ball in the story with Bamm-Bamm being her straight man.  The show primarily is Pebbles screwing up and trying to set it right.


Oh, Schleprock…you wacky jinx!

The other episodes have Pebbles either working with her father, working with her friends Wiggy, Moonrock, and Penny.  Wiggy is the friend who believes in astrology, Penny has the weight issue, and Moonrock is the inventor.  All of the friends of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm are kind of fun (Wiggy is voiced by Gay Hartwig who also voiced Betty Rubble and is a bit annoying).  Pebbles also gets a nemesis…not as cool as Maggie Simpsons’ Baby with One Eyebrow (Gerald Samson)…but you get the uppity Cindy and her metrosexual Stone Age boyfriend Fabian who never really go anywhere in this series.  The best edition to the group has to be the sad sack Schleprock who always brings doom and gloom.  I think Schleprock should show up in every episode…

The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show is primarily for fans of The Flintstones.  If you didn’t have enough of the Flintstones after six seasons, check out this collection.  It is generally affordable and a quick watch.  Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm are fun characters but seem pretty derivative of other teen shows at the time…stick with the original if you have a choice.
