  • Looks like Hanna-Barbera were big Laurel & Hardy fans.

    This episode was a stone age version of Sons of The Desert. Guess Fred would be Oliver Hardy while Barney's Stan Laurel.



    Fred buys a bird from sleazy salesman, Wilma clobbers Fred with bird cage, Doozy bites Fred, Doozy becomes a tattletale (ala Bert Convy), Wilma & Betty are shocked, Wilma informs the wives, they all attack @ Franric City, Fred & Barney flee for their lives & learn that Doozy double-crossed them all this time.



    All that was missing was Wilma throwing pots, pans & dishes @ Fred (just like Mrs. Hardy did to Ollie at the end of the movie).



    Great episode for henpecked husbands & overbearing wives!moreless
  • You don't have to hear it form a Dodo when the men are out of town!

    8.0
    the dodo with a big mouth caps this epiosde when Fred and Bsrney went to Frantic city to attend the Water Buffalo Convention. when the wives heard about this though the dodo bird, all hell is about to break loose. I don't care much about the Water Buffalos. It's just a male bondage thing. the women never understand. I never benn to those things. I like this episode although the last time I saw this epiosde was many decades ago, but I got a strong memory of watch that episode. What you do with a talking Dodo? If he talks, run.moreless

    • (after Fred and Barney have actually tricked their wives into thinking they're completely ill, Fred laughs)
      Fred: Smooth! Huh, Barney?
      Barney: Yep! They don't suspect a thing.
      Doozy: (with his cracker box empty) AWK! Frantic City! Frantic City! AWK!
      (Fred and Barney react and grab Doozy and the empty box)
      Barney: Hey, uh, Doozy ate up all the crackers, Fred!
      Fred: Well, get some more, and get the car started! We gotta ditch this gabby bird!

    • Mrs. Stonewall: (talks to Wilma on the phone) Frantic City, huh? Well, I'll get in touch with the other wives. And when we ALL get to Frantic City, it'll be a lot more "frantic".

    • Fred and Barney: Yabba-dabba-doo! To the convention we will go! A-go-go-go!

    • (Fred and Barney drive Doozy to a faraway part of Bedrock to ditch him, so as not to spoil their plans for the Buffalo Convention)
      Barney: Hey, this oughta be far enough, Fred. We've gone 100 miles.
      Fred: Okay, Barney. Stop the car!
      (Barney stops the car, and Fred gets out)
      Fred: (points to a cracker in his hand) C'mon, Doozy. Get your cracker!
      (he throws it, and Doozy runs off to get it as Fred heads for the car)
      Fred: Start the car, Barney!
      (suddenly, Doozy beats him to shotgun in Barney's car)
      (Fred grabs him)
      Fred: Outta that car! OUT! OUT!!!
      Barney: Hey, uh, don't be rough with him, Fred!
      Fred: Now, get in that cave!
      (he throws Doozy into the cave and seals it with a big rock with a CRASH!)
      Fred: Okay, Barney! Let's go!
      (he leaves, and the car takes off)
      (Doozy sticks his head out of the cave and squawks in agony)

    • Barney: Hey, that sounds like Doozy's snitchin' on us!
      Fred: He's more like a stool pigeon than a dodo! HEAD FOR THE WATER, BARNEY!!!
      (they leap into the water just in time!)
      Wilma: Now where are they?!
      Betty: I don't know, Wilma. I lost sight of them, too!
      Doozy: (points to the water) AWK! Head for the water, Barney. AWK! It's the water.
      Wilma: Thanks again, Doozy.
