Hollyrock-a-Bye Baby, also known as The Flintstones in Hollrock-a-Bye Baby, is an American animated prehistoric comedy television film produced by Hanna-Barbera Cartoons, based on The Flintstones TV series, which aired on ABC from 1960 to 1966. It aired on December 5, 1993 on ABC. It was written by Rich Fogel and Mark Seidenberg, produced by Iwao Takamoto, and directed by Hanna-Barbera co-founder and series co-creator, William Hanna, and voice directed by Gordon Hunt and Kris Zimmerman.

The Flintstones and Rubbles visit their newlywed kids after they discover that Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm have gotten pregnant after getting married and setting up a new life together in Hollyrock.

Hollyrock-a-Bye Baby followed I Yabba-Dabba Do!, which also aired on ABC at the beginning of 1993. ABC turned the duology into a loose trilogy by airing A Flintstone Family Christmas two weeks later, with cameos of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm with their kids who are now a few months older.
