    Welcome to the thread of sharing bad continuity! I dunno it's just the Flintstones had so much bad contunuity

    ~The walls changed colors (gray to blue to copper)
    ~Dino always changed colors
    ~Wilma's maiden name
    ~The cars always change!
    ~The houses pillows, blankets, and curtains.

    For some reason, I didn't really notice most of those. I DID notice the color change on the wall, though.

    Barney's eyes- sometimes they are black circles, sometimes they are clear Mr. Slate - Sometimes he is short with dark hair, then later on in the series, he is much taller and bald.

    Speaking of Mr. Slate, has anyone noticed how many first names they've used for him? With the series, they've gone from Sam to Sylvester to yet another one I can't remember. Then in the 1980's, they went with Nate, which was used in The Jetsons Meet the Flintstones and The Flintstone Kids. And you could even hear the name George in the scene Fred walks Pebbles down the aisle in I Yabba-Dabba Do! Either Slate is part-Mexican or they did some major cloning in HB's Stone Age.

    And also the stories of how they met change too. sometimes they were high school sweethearts and other times they met when they were older. It's a common trend with long running cartoon series...

    Like most babyfication shows, The Flintstone Kids are not really part of the original canon (Wilma being childhood friends with Fred despite The Flintstones establishing that they meet in their adult years and Nate Slate being their age when the original show makes it clear that he is older than them).

    As far as errors go, the fact that Dino is shown to have human intellect and speech capabilities in one episode whereas the other episodes he has the complete mentality of a pet.
