  • show Description
  • Welcome to The Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm Show guide at TV.com. One of the better and more memorable spin-offs of The Flintstones, The Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm Show follows the teen hijinks of 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. The Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm Show 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. The series ran for one season as The Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm Show, then was combined with four new episodes, vignettes, and a dance of the week to expand into The Flintstone Comedy Hour (1972-1973) and The Flintstones Show (1973-1974). From 1974-1976, The Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm Show returned to its original 30-minute format -- repeating the same episodes. **Series information, episode guide and images courtesy of Webrock - The Flintstones & Hanna-Barbera Page and T.R.

    Notes (1)

    • The Rolling Boulders and Mick Jadestone are based on none other than the rock band, "The Rolling Stones" and singer Mick Jagger. The live-action Flintstone movie "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas" would also have a band based on "The Rolling Stones".

    Trivia (8)

    • Note that the background music and sound effects for this episode, and the entire series, are a combination of both from the original The Flintstones series and Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?

    • This is the first episode of the series to include a laugh track.

    • This episode is based on the 1963 episode, "The Flintstone Canaries," when Barney could only sing good when in the bathtub.

    • Fred has worked at the gravel pit for seventeen years.

    • There is a look alike Betty in the crowd when Pebbles is at the racetrack. She has the exact same hairdo and dress, but different face.

    • The Hiltrock Hotel is obviously based on the Hilton chain. Note that Mr. Ball, the owner of the bowling alley, looks a lot like Mr. Slate. Pebbles' father also boasted that he could get a rock singer to come to a party, in the Flintstones episode "The Twitch."

    • Fred mentions three restaurants and their owners: Al and the Bedrock Diner, Cookie at the Rockhouse Grill and Joe at Stonyhouse Burgers.

    • The hair salon owner Pomparock's voice is an imitation of actor Paul Lynde.

    Allusions (12)

    • Bamm-Bamm mentions Hercules, both of whom claim to be the strongest man in the world.

    • Pebbles has an Elvis Rockley (Elvis Presley) record. She mentions James Bondrock (James Bond), who was also mentioned a number of times in the original Flintstones series. The gang goes to the Rockanpolis Speedway (Indianapolis Speedway).

    • Cindy mentions the Witch of the North from The Wizard of Oz.

    • The concert takes place at Woodrock Stadium, which is a reference to Woodstock.

    • The pop culture references become more prominent as the series progresses. In "Focus Foolery," you have: 1. Arnold Palmrock (golfer Arnold Palmer). 2. Jack Webbrock (police series producer Jack Webb) 3. Adamstone 12 (the early 70s police series Adam-12) 4. There are even references to the original Flintstones series. Pebbles taking pictures of the robbers is the same as "Reel Trouble," and the photo of Pebbles' thumb is borrowed from "Adobe Dick," both from 1964.

    • Gettystone Oil is based on Getty Oil, which is now part of Texaco. Pebbles looks up a business in the Yellow Pages. Some references to the old series, including the background music, and, most notably, Betty and Wilma yelling, "Charge it!"

    • The gang visits Sea Rock World (Sea World).

    • There are some surprisingly sophisticated allusions in this episode, ones that its younger viewers would probably not understand. Chief F a g i n s t o n e is based on the character of Fagin in Dickens' novel "Oliver Twist." Pebbles mentions the movie "Bonnierock and Clydestone," a film that small children would not have seen at the time. Gimbelstone's is based on the department store Gimbel's.
