  • The Flintstones are Having a Baby, And Everyone In the Whole Wide World is Going to Hear It!

    The Rubbles are taking care of Betty's sister's baby, a cutesy named Marblehead. While Wilma is happy over the baby, Fred can't stand them, which causes a heavy rift between his friendship with Barney. There's quite a few episodes of The Flintstones where Fred and Barney bicker over something stupid, and this one is likely the most hilarious of those episodes, cause it had to do with a baby. I'm pretty sure Mel Blanc and Alan Reed had so much fun in their roles doing these argument scenes. This episode is also known for the revelation at the end that Wilma is having a baby of her own, which was a first for a cartoon series on TV. This scene makes the episode that more worthwhile as TV history was being made.
