The Original “Flintstones” Theme Song (1960)

The extremely famous, universally-memorized Flintstones opening theme song (“Flintstones / meet the Flintstones / they’re the modern Stone Age family…”)  wasn’t used until the show’s second season. Before that, they used this one, lost to history.

  1. Not lost to history – this appears on the DVD set for season one.

    And to Wings: The Simpsons are very much modeled after The Flintstones – also compare the conceptual parallels in Groening’s second animated venture Futurama with HB’s Jetsons (both space/future concepts.)

    @ bubbashelby: And The Flintstones themselves, of course, were based on Jackie Gleason’s The Honeymooners.
