  • Betty takes up judo lessons to protect herself from a burglar making the rounds in the neighborhood. She teaches Wilma the moves she has learned.

    "The Prowler" was recorded on April 5, 1960, and originally aired on Dec. 30, 1960.
    These are my comments and questions.
    1. The 1960 theme and opening credits are used.
    2. Professor Rockimoto, the judo instructor, is one of the few ethnic characters shown in the original series. Later incarnations of "The Flintstones" would have a number of ethnic characters.
    3. As Fred drives in his car, you hear part of an instrumental version of the regular Flintstones theme song.
    4. Fred is very sexist toward Wilma in this episode. It's one of the episodes where you want to kick him in the head.
