  • The Flintstones rips off another TV show!

    5.0
    The episode introduce Weirdly and Creeplla along with their son Gobby.And Fred and Barney babysit Gobby amiss all the weirdness in the house. If the flintstones would have a spin off, it would be the Gruesomes. but ABC already have "The Addams Famil;y" and "The Munsters" over at CBS. So too bad that the grusomes can't have their own show. it's 1965 and a lot of cartoon shows are going to Saturday Morning. The epiosde is split in half. I half like the episode, the other half I didn't like. I didn't care much about this episode. Fred and Barney have benn in one too many haunted houses.moreless
