What's the difference exactly between making this it's own show then having a Flintstones spinoff where Fred and Barney are in modern times as football players? -- Snoopy The Dog (talk) 18:43, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
"There's a family down the street, the Huddles! The McCoys live right next door."
"Yes I know, the girls are alright Marge and Penny, but the fella's, they play football you know. Savages, that's what they are."
The man behind the voice of Fred Flintstone voiced MadDog Maloney, the coach of the Rhinos. Reed had to yell an awful lot for this role. Originally, he was going to be voiced by Joe Besser based on the pilot episode. -- Snoopy The Dog (talk) 19:57, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
End title card
This show was a replacement show for another show that was canceled, incase you didn't know, replacement shows don't last long, which explains why this series was short lived. -- Snoopy The Dog (talk) 16:49, 5 April 2021 (UTC)
Being a pilot
Calling the pre-series pitch a pilot, while I get what you mean, it also sounds confusing, because the pilot episode is technically "The Old Swimming Hole", the same way The Flagstones is only the pilot pitch, not the pilot, because that can also be applied to "The Flinstone Flyer". -- MisterJames (talk) 18:20, 5 April 2021 (UTC)
- Exactly, I don't know if I would exactly count that Pilot as their first appearance, I would definitely count "The Old Swimming Hole" as their first television appearance though. I'm not exactly sure on what we would consider it as other than a pilot (something with "pitch" in it maybe?) makes me kinda wish they had a name for the pitch, but they didn't because it's one of those HB series that don't use title cards or show the episode's name in it at all. -- Snoopy The Dog (talk) 18:29, 5 April 2021 (UTC)
- What I mean is, you referred to the pre-series voice actor on the character page with "pilot episode" in brackets. I think it should say "pilot pitch" to clarify what we mean. And, yeah, it would've been helpful if it had its own name. -- MisterJames (talk) 18:34, 5 April 2021 (UTC)
HB universe lives on
By the looks of it, WB is finally working on bringing the HB universe back to life again with the renaming of CN in Europe to Hanna-Barbera, that and we still have Jellystone! coming around the corner, and other HB works in progress. -- Snoopy The Dog (talk) 21:42, 9 April 2021 (UTC)
- I just hope WB keeps it going, we haven't gotten any new news about Jellystone! yet, I think they might still be working on it without giving any updates. -- Snoopy The Dog (talk) 08:14, 3 May 2021 (UTC)
I don't know the exact reason why this series ended off on ten episodes, I would assume the following reasons why it might have went so fast:
- 1. That it ended because it was a summer replacement (and from what I've read online, a lot of those don't last for to long).
- 2. Marie Wilson, the voice of Penny McCoy, passed away two years after the tenth episode (which might have ended on a cliffhanger).
- 3. It wasn't bringing in as much successful ratings.
Those were some possible reasons, for some reason, this show didn't gain as many episodes as other HB shows at the time. It's also odd how a number of voice actors on the show voiced characters exclusively just for the show, for HB anyway, (Ed, Freight, Penny, Sportscaster .etc), information on this show is obscure of course, so I can't find much about it. -- Snoopy The Dog (talk) 22:43, 13 May 2021 (UTC)
