Regardless of how Fred's eyes look on the TV, in "Hooray for Hollyrock", he states that they are "Robin's Egg Blue"
Although they never specifically said where Barney worked, he had some type of Government job.... he would get laid off occasionally, and worked various places, such as for a Reposession firm, Fred's Quarry, and others. *side note: in one episode Betty tells a friend Barney's work is "top secret".
In the episode "The Entertainer" (P-44), Wilma's old friend Greta Gravel remembers her as "Wilma Pebble" -- which we can only assume was her maiden name. Again, in "Dial S for Suspicion" (P-74), one of Wilma's
old boyfriends calls her "Wilma Pebble." Yet in later episodes such as "Bachelor Daze" (P-112) flashing back to where she and Betty were working as cigarette girls and they first meet Fred and Barney, Wilma's last name is said to be Slaghoople -- a perfect example of Flintstones quirkiness.
In The Bedrock Cops, Fred and Barney are deputies who get crime fighting help from their supernatural friend, the Shmoo.
In episode # 37 "The Missing Bus", there's a scene in the restaurant
where you can see posted on the wall "fried dinosaur eggs" but only if
you freeze frame it with your VCR. This is impossible to notice when
watching at regular speed. This scene is where the bus rider is running
out of the restaurant when he hears "Bedrock to Redrock".
Bedrock is located in Cobblestone County.
One of Barneys jobs was in the Granite Building working for Mr. Granite.
Barney grew up at 142 Boulder Ave. in Granitetown.
In Hollyrock-A-Bye-Baby, Pebbles gives birth to twins, Roxy -- who is towheaded and inherits her father's super strength, and Chip -- a redheaded boy.
In the episode based on the "Shindig" TV series, there was a version of the 1965-66 San Francisco-based band "The Beau Brummels" singing their hit "Laugh Laugh." Also, there was a dream sequence with Fred teaching his dance to stone-age caricatures of President Lyndon B. Johnson and French President Charles De Gaulle.
Mr. Slate had various names which included Oscar, Harry, Seymour and
Sam; his secretary's name was Ms. LaRock.
In 1994's feature film The Flintstones, the Flintmobile's license plate was YABADO. While in the original series, the license was XYZ 643 (episode P-19).
Fred once wrote Wilma a love letter; here are the words:
I love thee Wilma, with hair like silk,
Lips like cherries, skin like milk,
Your shell-like ears, your dainty hands,
And eyes so black, like frying pans
And when you in my arms are in,
My love how can you doubt?
I quiver just like geletin,
And sometimes even break out.
You're a perfect peach, my love,
Together we're a pear (pair),
You're sweet, you're nice, you're paradise,
And all kinna stuff like that there.
Pebbles was born at the Bedrock Rockapedic Hospital on February 22, 10,000 B.C. at 8:00pm. She weighed 6 pounds, 12 ounces.
Towards the end of the 5th season, a new couple moved in next to Fred and Wilma; the Gruesome's: Wierdly, Creepella, and their son Goblin.
When Fred turned Barney invisible, Fred was able to beat Blowhard Sandstone at bowling for the first time.
The Flintstones had several addresses (love that consistency!):
301 Cobblestone Way, Bedrock, 70777
301 Cobblestone Lane
345 Stonecave Road
222 Rocky Way
It is clear that Fred worked (most of the time - except when he was fired) at the same quarry, but the name of his boss (as well as occasionally his face) changed several times from Mr Boulder to J. J. Granite to Joe Rockhead to -- finally -- Mr. Slate.
Even the quarry had several different names throughout the show. They include:
The Slaterock Gravel Company
The Bedrock Gravel Company
The Rockhead Quarry
Cave Construction Company
The fraternal order that Fred and Barney belonged to also changed many times. In the beginning it was The Loyal Order of Dinosaurs, but it was also called The Loyal Order of Water Buffalos and the Royal Order of Water Buffalos.
The Great Gazoo was from the planet Zetox, and his voice was done by Harvey Korman.
In the episode "Groom Gloom," listen to Pebbles' grown up voice. It is the exact same voice as Judy Jetson!
In episode P-62, Dino falls for a Hollyrock star whose name is Sassie. Later on, in episode P-125, Dino falls head over heals again -- this time for the Loudrock family pet (with whom he has puppies -- the scandal!).
In the episode of The Simpsons entitled "Marge vs. the Monorail" (9F10), Homer was singing a parody of the classic "Meet the Flintstones" theme with the following lyrics:
"Simpson! Homer Simpson!
He's the greatest guy in history!
From the town of Springfield!
He's about to hit a chestnut tree!"
The Flintstones was nominated for an Emmy in 1961 for "Outstanding Program Achievement in the Field of Humor. They lost to The Jack Benny Show.
