Synopsis:

 


 
In the wake of age-regression successes like Muppet Babies, Hanna-Barbera sent one of its most beloved properties even further back into the Stone Age. The Flintstone Kids set aside the established continuity of its parent program to cast “Freddy,” Barney, Wilma, and Betty as 10-year-old friends, with pet dinosaur Dino a mere pup. Also knocked down to junior size was Fred’s future boss, Nate Slate.

The show added a rich supporting cast of new characters, including poor little rich girl Dreamchip Gemstone, budding private-eye Philo Quartz and bully Rocky Ratrock; with regular appearances by Freddy's parents Ed and Edna Flintstone and their next-door neighbors the Rubbles, Robert and Flo, and their son Barney.

The kids’ Stone Age shenanigans were balanced out by three supporting segments. Dino’s Dilemmas gave the purple pet his first starring role, showing home viewers the world from a dino-dog’s eye view. The Flintstone Funnies gave the kids the Muppet Babies-like ability to live out their dreams in fantasy adventures.

The final segment, Captain Caveman and Son, was actually a show-within-a-show, the TV entertainment of choice for the young citizens of Bedrock. Captain Caveman was a hairy, bumbling superhero who saved the world with the help of his more competent son, Cavey Jr. Captain Caveman would occasionally take a break from saving the world in order to talk directly to (and with) the Flintstone Kids themselves.

The Flintstone Kids ran for two seasons on ABC’s Saturday morning lineup. Near the end of that run, the cartoon kids were joined by a live-action Nancy Reagan for the nighttime broadcast of The Flintstone Kids “Just Say No” Special, in which the First Lady urged children to join her “Just Say No” anti-drug clubs. The series returned briefly to Saturday morning at the start of 1990 before being put into the rotation of the syndicated package The Funtastic World of Hanna-Barbera.
