The Flintstone Comedy Hour is an American animated variety show-type television series produced by Hanna-Barbera for CBS. It ran from 1972 to 1973, airing 18 episodes that spanned one season; between 1973 and 1974, CBS aired a half-hour version retitled The Flintstone Comedy Show. It is a spin-off of The Flintstones, and the third incarnation of the Flintstones franchise.

There were two segments starring Fred and Barney, and one segment starring their teen kids, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm (as a continuation of The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show), along with short jokes, horoscopes and two songs by the kids' new band The Bedrock Rockers shown in-between.





The music was composed and conducted by Hoyt Curtin, who was credited as musical director. The musical supervisor was Paul DeKorte.
