  • Ann Margaret Guest Stars in this Classic Flintstones Episode!

    9.0
    Ann Margaret voices the Stone Age version of herself, Ann Margrock, as she searches for talent in Bedrock during an upcoming performance. When her car breaks down in front of the Flintstones house, she ends up babysitting Pebbles while Fred and Barney try to audition for Ann's show (unaware that Ann is in the Flintstone home.



    Margaret does a fine job at playing the Stone Age version of herself. Her bond with Pebbles is cute and sweet, and is the strongest moment in this episode. The song she sings, "The Littlest Lamb", is such a sweet song. Brought back many memories. I was also entertained by the ways Fred and Barney try to impress Ann by attempting to put them in their act, unaware that they were dealing with a superstar. The final moments were really fun, as Ann performs a really fun song and dance number.



    Final Consensus: This is a classic Flintstones episode. Ann Margaret's appearance was a memorable one.moreless
  • The fourth season begins with entertainer Ann-Margrock coming to Bedrock to open the town's new venue The Bedrock Bowl. Fred and Barney learn of auditions being held for the show and jump at the chance to do so.moreless

    "Ann-Margrock Presents" is one of the best episodes of the The Flintstones period. There are a number of reasons for that. There are many funny and clever moments in this episode from start to finish. Some examples are Ann-Margrock's rapport with Pebbles. Ann-Margrock's interaction with Fred and Barney's rehearsals are well done also. When you finish watching the episode you won't be able to get the song "I Love You Bud I Ain't Gonna Be A Fool" out of your head. A good time all the way through. You definitely haven't seen The Flintstones unless you have seen "Ann-Margrock Presents."moreless

    Best classic Flintstone episode, simply because of Annie. Annie Margrock (that's Ann-Margret to us). The credits deserve a zero-minus (0-) for not just only forgetting to credit her by her name Ann-Margret in the credits, but not crediting her as "Special Guest Star: ANN-MARGRET as Ann-Margrock" Her animation wasn't bad at all, in fact Ann's animated stone-age image was beautiful, and her voice, I could picture her own live action self in every scene she was in as Ann-Margrock, especially with her singing two beautiful hits such as "My Littlest Lamb is Asleep" & "I Love You, But I Ain't Gonna Be Your Fool!" This episode is quite an entertainer whether you're a fan of Ann-Margret, Flinstones, or if you're like me, an Elvis Presley fan who digs Ann-Margret and remembers her in her role of Rusty Stevens in Elvis & Ann's famous MGM movie from 1964, "Viva Las Vegas". Why was she not credited in the credits? But as long as you and I know that that really WAS Ann-Margret using her voice and being practically herself in that episode, that alone is credit enough.moreless
  • Chemistry Works/Rest of the epiosde didn't.

    6.0
    I like the relationship between Ann Margrock and Pebbles, but this epiosde had failed to pass. The problem is Fred and Barney. When they heard abot a talent contest, Guess where those goof balls ended up. In front of the Fred's house where Ann's babysitting. Can't those goof-balls go somewhere else for talent? the only thing they accomplish is waking up Pebbles. Nothing more. This is nothing more than a showbiz celebrity trying to escape fame and end up in Bredrock. I like the ending where Fred, Barney and Ann had a song and dance number. I'll give it a 6.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • With the special bond Ann Margrock has with Pebbles throughout this episode,it's a wonder she was never seen at Pebbles and Bamm Bamm's wedding.

    • The scene before the credits doesn't appear in the episode itself. This situation happens periodically throughout the next two years.

    • There is a blooper at the end. At the start of that scene, there are a lot of people sitting on the couch, but at the end there are only Wilma, Betty and Pebbles. Where did everyone go?

  • QUOTES (1)

  • NOTES (3)

    • Bea Benaderet receives no screen credit for her voice of Betty Rubble throughout this whole season. The only stars noted during the closing credits are Alan Reed, Mel Blanc, and Jean Vander-Pyl.

    • Some additions were added to the regular opening and closing credit scenes. Added to the opening scene, when Fred arrives home from work, he runs into the house and picks up Pebbles, who was playing with her toys (replacing the scene where Fred beeps his car horn and Wilma, Dino, and the cat come running out of the house). The one other addition is when they arrive at the drive-in, and Dino pokes his head through the car roof, Pebbles is placed on Dino's head. In the closing scene, when the family arrives home and walks into the house one by one, we have a brief close-up of Wilma happily carrying Pebbles in her arms.
