The Flintstones Christmas Collection is one of those Great cartoons 1990s cartoons that is rarely seen on television nowadays. I have never been one to turn away an animated Christmas Special and I remember catching this special on TV in 1994 and thinking, “that ain’t bad”. I was not alone in thinking that, this Special was so high quality is was nominated for an Emmy award. What is it about?
Celebrate the solstice in Stone Age style with these two animated holiday classics, starring America’s favorite pre-historic family. Your first course of holiday cheer from Fred and co. is 1977’s A Flintstone Christmas, in which Fred and Barney must save Christmas when Santa sprains his ankle. There’s one big problem, though – Fred promised Mr. Slate that he will play Santa at the Children’s holiday party. Can Fred and Barney deliver all the toys and still make it back to the party in time? A Flintstone Family Christmas, gives viewers a glimpse into the later life of the Rubbles and the Flintstones. Awaiting the return of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm (now married with children of their own), Fred and Barney encounter a criminally inclined “caveless” youth. Fred and Wilma attempt to instill values in the boy, only to find themselves with a most unexpected Christmas gift.
That is some pure Christmas magic for home viewing and thanks to the Warner Archive, it is now available on DVD. Share it with your family this holiday season and order your copy of A Flintstone Christmas Collection on DVD today.
