    Fed's uncle J. Giggles Flintstone is dead and left Fred with some inheritance if he could spent the nighjt in a haunted castle. Barney went along for the ride. I can recall seeing that episode when I was young and I was scarred by that episode. I don't know what's going to happen to Fred and Barney. I was concerned. But then again I was a child, I love the show. It was a good episode. The uncle was alive and everyone was happy, ecept the people who tried to kill Fred and Barney. They got what it's coming to them.moreless
