In a parallel modern-day Stone Age world, a working-class family, the Flintstones, are set up for an executive job. But they learn that money can't buy happiness.
Geena Davis, Faith Ford, and Catherine O'Hara were all considered for the role of Wilma Flintstone.
Hey, back to work! You guys had a break two days ago!
Wilma's fingers squeeze the briefcase Barney gives Fred at the party.
There are no logos at the beginning of the film. After the opening scene, we get a live-action version of the cartoon opening, which concludes with the main characters at a drive-in movie theater. The movie they see starts with a parody of the Universal Pictures logo, designed in Bedrock fashion: it features a prehistoric Earth with the single continent of Pangaea and reads "UNIVERSHELL". It is also accompanied by the 1960s theme music from Revue Productions (which Universal owned), which is fitting for a 1960s cartoon adaptation.
A credit for Mel Blanc as Dino was added to home video versions. The speed of the credits scroll was adjusted to make room without extending the music.
