  • Wilma and Betty fight for equal rights for women, but soon learn that it's not that easy to do anything a man can do. :idea:

    If Wilma Flintstone and Betty Rubble were real people, they would be considered the mother's of woman's lib. Although Fred and Barney might be top dogs at work, Wilma and Betty were almost always the ones who wore the metaphorical pants in their own households. And while Wilma and Betty were willing to do many things to ensure that everyone had equal rights regardless of gender, it's in this episode that sometimes, what they desire may not necessarily be what they want. In other words, just because they have the ambition to do something, it doesn't mean that they should try to do it. But the Modern Stone Age wives want to know what all the fuss is about Water Buffalo conventions, so they sneak in with guy mustaches and pose as burly men ready and raring to do anything to prove their worth as members. It doesn't take too long for Betty and Wilma to realize that the gravel isn't smoother on the other side, and if they can't take the pain, they shouldn't try to participate in painful paddling initiations. Wilma and Betty decide that the life of a loyal Water Buffalo despite their potential rewards, isn't worth the pain they feel on their bottoms, and they decide to leave some of the hard stuff for the men, as there is always plenty of their own hard stuff to deal with at home. This is a funny, humorous episode that is great to watch by either women, or men, so I highly recommend it! :idea: Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless

    Betty and wilma wants to go to the Buffalo Lodge, but they won't let them. Even one guy wants to wives to join, but he got kicked out. In thei view, if the buffalo Lodge let women join, then where can they go for a little fun? Betty and wilma is going to crack the sex barrier by sneaking into the lodge dressed as me. I like the way they went though the initiation with another member. One such initiation is paddle you behind. But at the end, they realize that being a Water buffalo member isn't what it's all crack up to be.moreless
