Overview

Although the animated stone-age sitcom The Flintstones was inevitably showing signs of fatigue as the series entered its sixth and final season, there were still enough highlights and innovations to keep fans happy -- and even to attract a few new devotees. The season opener, "No Biz Like Show Biz," finds infants Pebbles Flintstone and Bamm Bamm Rubble suddenly and inexplicably developing the ability to sing! Naturally, this attracts the attention of a big-time music promoter named Eppy Brianstone -- his name of course a takeoff on The Beatles' Brian Epstein. For the record, the babies' big song hit is that old standard "Open Up Your Heart and Let the Sun Shine In," by Stuart Hambles. Nor is this the sixth season's only musical highlight. The episode "The Masquerade Party" features another English rock group called the Way Outs, performing a medley of their hit, titled -- what else? -- "Way Outs.".And a genuine musical aggregation, the Beau Brummels (aka "The Beau Brummelstones"), perform "Laugh, Laugh" on the episode "Shinrock a Go Go," which also features the voice of Jimmy O'Neill (aka "Jimmy O'Neillstone"), who was then host of the live-action variety series Shindig. New to the series this season is The Great Gazoo, an imperious-pint sized green space alien who has been exiled to earth, and who condescendingly grants all sorts of wishes to "dum-dums" Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble. Introduced in the episode appropriately titled "The Great Gazoo," the character's voice is supplied by Harvey Korman. Other celebrity voices heard durng Season 6 are those of Bewitched stars Elizabeth Montgomery and Dick York in "Samantha," and Tony Curtis in "The Return of Stony Curtis." The 166th and final episode of The Flintstones is "The Story of Rocky's Raiders," clearly inspired by the then-popular "Snoopy vs. The Red Baron" continuity in the Peanuts comic strip; on this occasion, Fred's venerable grandfather recalls his exploits as an ace pilot during Stone World War One.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
To Gazoo or not to Gazoo? That is the ultimate question for Flintstones fans, since he is about as popular as the dread Cousin Oliver on The Brady Bunch. But any character affectionately referenced on The Simpsons and Family Guy can't be all bad. As odd as the arrival in Stone Age Bedrock of a little green alien from the future might be, his episodes in this sixth season are out of this world. Credit goes to Harvey Korman, who voices Gazoo with the sneer of a disdainful English butler. He is introduced in the episode "The Great Gazoo," written by Joanna Lee, who, we are informed in an interesting bonus segment included on this four-DVD set, was only the second woman ever to write for cartoons. Gazoo pops up throughout the season, granting wishes for "dum-dums" Fred and Barney, who found the banished, time-traveling scientist from the planet Zetox. In "Seeing Doubles," he conjures up monosyllabic clones "Yes, yes, yes." "No, no, no." to take Wilma and Betty out to dinner while Fred and Barney go bowling. Gazoo wasn't the only stunt designed to lift The Flintstones' sagging ratings: Guest stars this season include Tony Curtis in "The Return of Stoney Curtis"; Dick York and Elizabeth Montgomery inexplicably appearing as their Bewitched characters in "Samantha"; and the Brit-pop greats the Beau Brummels Flintstonized as the Beau Brummelstones singing their hit "Laugh Laugh" in "No Biz Like Show Biz." This classic episode also features Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm's maddeningly catchy song, "Open Up Your Heart and Let the Sunshine In" "Smilers never lose / And frowners never win", which after a few minutes makes one long for "It's a Small World." The Flintstones continued to mine its prehistoric setting to poke fun at ‘60s pop culture, including James Bond films "Stonecrusher" and teenage dance fads "Shinrock-A-Go-Go," in which Fred unwittingly creates a dance sensation, the Frantic, after a bowling ball lands on his foot. The Flintstones made history as prime time's first animated series. After this season, it was history. What a yabba-dabba-doo time it was!
