yabba dabba doo!

fifty years ago the flintstones debuted on television; but it might as well have been fifty million years ago. the timeless quality of the show's humor suggests that maybe we haven't changed all that much over the years. the theme song didn't come until the third season; but it is one of the most recognizable in the history of the small screen. every day at five o'clock i hear that whistle in my head and think of fred sliding off of his bront-o-crane at the end of his work day.

the closing is even longer with the sabre tooth putting fred out for the night!
