And Mel Blanc was but weeks away from death.
Wait, how exactly did he trick Fred?
Why are so many cereal commercials about preventing people from eating cereal?
Actually, no. At this point in the Flintstones chronology, the minerals necessary to make "Fruity Pebbles" are buried deep beneath the earth's surface, almost impossible to mine out without pain and/or death. Only the wealthy and privileged can enjoy the delicious taste of "Fruity Pebbles" cereal. It isn't until a meteor collides with the planet and kills off all the household appliances that these minerals are forced out of the ground. After the Flintstone and Rubble families survive the ensuing ice age and wrestle control of Bedrock away from the mysterious Mr. Post (which is revealed to be a freakish mutated hybrid of Dino and Mr. Slate- see the "Return of Fred" story arc), everyone can sit down and enjoy the cereal together.
my brother rapped this for years after it stopped airing
he's kind of a mongoloid
Whenever I attempt to free style rap this song always comes out instead. I'm just that good.

Have you ever tried walking into a stranger's house in the middle of breakfast and rapping like this? Usually, they get very angry, and they hardly ever let their guard down long enough for you to steal their cereal.
I thougt Fred Flinstone and Barney Rubble were supposed to be friends, but Fred wouldn't even give him some crappy cereal. My faith in humanity is shatttered.
Santa did the same thing for Cookie Crisp's Cookie Crook. Speaking of which, I have a clip to submit.
I never understood why these commercials turned Barney into some wacky trickster like the friggin' Hamburglar.
Hey Stopheles, has a real rapper ever uttered the phrase "And I'm here to say?" If so, who was first, when was it first used for ironic/comedy rap, and how long ago did it become hilariously played out?
I'll be damned. Apparently Miss Chiquita Banana innovated that rhyme way back in 1944.

Barney is an asshole
It's kind of weird not having the Flintstones around anymore. It's one of those things you just assumed would be there forever.
It's kind of AWESOME you mean. Not only was our generation subjected to it, but with fewer channels it was often the ONLY thing on.
There is no such thing as a good Hannah Barbara cartoon.

I saw this when it first aired. Really, honestly, I didn't think it was odd at all.
I can't remember half the weird stuff in commercials. I always wonder why Lucky is running from some kids who are after his charms, and why he always needs the power of some new marshmallow to help him out. "Oh yeah, a balloon, cause now he can fly and get away from those kids." And it's always different kids. Sure, they go affirmative action with it and keep it a little bit of everything, but it's different kids. Is he killing them? Is he laying down traps for cereal hungry youth? Maybe the whole series of commercias are about how he finds new and clever ways to kill children across the globe and he needs your help to do it.
Lucky could always ask his cousin from the Leprechaun movies to deal with those kids.
If Fred's that credulous a person after all these years of Barney trying to get his breakfast, what else is he being tricked out of?
Maybe it's like a prehistoric version of the Room, where his best friend (Barney) and his wife are both betraying him.
