The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show

30-minute Saturday morning series (1971-1972)

Synopsis:

    The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show follows the hijinks of the teen Pebbles Flintstone and Bamm-Bamm Rubble. Bypassing several important growth stages, Bedrock's favorite tots are now teenagers attending Bedrock High where, not surprisingly, they become embroiled in a variety of misadventures along with their pals Wiggy, Penny, and teen inventor Moonrock. Other characters include Fred and Wilma Flintstone, Barney and Betty Rubble, Pebbles' rival Cindy with her sidekick Fabian, a motorcycle gang called the Bronto Bunch, and Bad-luck Schleprock.

    This series is one of the best of the spin-offs, though is definitely dated with signs of the times -- drag-racing, "groovy" lingo, mini-skirts, cave buggies, brontoburger hangouts, motorcycle gangs, teen music idols, etc.

    Pebbles -- much like her father Fred -- is always coming up with "brilliant ideas" that end up getting the gang into some sort of trouble -- and making Bamm-Bamm cringe.
