man they totally did give up on this franchise after the '90s ended, didn't they?

man they totally did give up on this franchise after the '90s ended, didn't they? it seems like once Jean Vander Pyle died they pretty much packed it in.

    It's really because of WB getting the H-B stuff and not doing anything with them except for Scooby-Doo

        If you are talking about the one with Yogi working at FedEx, that one was a rejected concept from 10 years ago.

    You can blame the 2nd movie for that. The first one did well and was moderately popular(over 300 million dollars at the box office) despite being slow and somewhat depressing. The 2nd one was a bomb that didn't even make it's budget back. They assumed people only liked the first movie for the cast and didn't give a shit about the Flintstones, rather than understand the terrible plot of the 2nd movie is what killed it. They brought in Gazoo for gods sake.

        I dunno how you managed to avoid Flintstones:Viva Rock Vegas, but congrats.

      The pre-Pebbles seasons are probably better and funnier- but most people recognize the Flintstone as the Pebbles/bam-bam as babies stuff. They gambled on doing a prequel because of the smaller budget and not getting the 90's movie cast back- and that didn't help.

      I dunno how you managed to avoid Flintstones:Viva Rock Vegas, but congrats.

      Even as a kid I thought it got very little marketing. It wasn't DTV, but it felt like it was.

      for a little while he was yes, but then he left the project, it went dormant for about a decade, and now it's back as of a few years ago with no details other than 'flintstones for adults' and we havent heard a peep since then, who knows if its still happening

        That's so strange because Fred is a much more proactive character

          Eh, I'd say more like early Homer where he's dumb, but still capable of functioning. I mean, Flintstones was basically an animated version of The Honeymooners, just toning down the husband's aggressive tendencies and all that. I would imagine all Seth would have to do is just make more adult jokes and maybe imply some more sultry things than what even the original cartoons were able to get away with

            Fred was more of a schemer, hard headed but not really dumb

              He could be at times, though it was significantly rarer than what we had with the likes of early season Homer and pre-cancellation Peter who were definitely stupid at times, and only got progressively worse to the point that one of them even got diagnosed as having a mental handicap.
              Of course, with the current trend of television being "haha, guys are dumb", I guess there is a chance a modern Fred would just be mad into a straight up idiot who couldn't Yabba Dabba Doo his way out of a paper bag

            Fred wasn’t stupid at all, he just had severe anger issues. The dumb dad archetype didn’t become a thing until after the Simpsons popularized it.

    It’s rooted in the 20th century anyway, using the prehistoric premise as satire.
    It doesn’t work with 21st century.
    Let the franchise peacefully die.

    We saw Fred, Wilma, Barney, and Betty become grandparents. Let them retire
