Somebody out there who is a bigger cartoon expert than me, can probably tell me (and probably will) where this track comes from. It’s not the “Meet The Flintstones” theme we’ve heard over and over again on endlessly rerun episodes of The Flintstones in syndication. Was it from the first season? The pilot? Some kind of early experiment or first draft?
Then again, The Flintstones is notorious for revisionism. The original end title theme song said “We’ll have a GAY old time” but it was later changed to “We’ll have a GREAT old time” when someone realized that two barefoot guys dressed in fur and hanging out in a cave together seemed, well, a little gay.
(This was the only piece of Flintstones art I could find online that wasn’t pornographic. Somebody has waaaay to much time on his hands.)
Anyhow, it’s good to hear the Rubbles finally get their due.
