  • Bank robbers throw their loot onto the Rubbles' lawn. When Fred and Barney try to return the money to the bank, the police mistake them for the crooks.

    "The Big Bank Robbery" was recorded Aug. 15, 1960, and originally aired Jan. 20, 1961.
    These are my comments and questions:
    1. The 1960 theme and opening credits are used.
    2. The money was stolen from the Rockville National Bank. The episode also mentions the Rockville Department Store.
    3. The Flintstones' address in this episode is 315 Stone Cave Road.
    4. On the DVD set, the color in this episode is very faded. It doesn't look like it has been restored.
    5. On a related note, I never saw this episode when the series was in syndication between 1967 and the late 1970s. Although I never missed reruns of the series, this was one of the few episodes that I never saw until the early 80s, which leads me to believe that (A) it wasn't part of the original syndication package and (B) perhaps the master recording is missing, and one of the copies had to be used on the DVD.
