The Flintstone Kids is an American animated Stone Age comedy television series produced by Hanna-Barbera for ABC. It ran from 1986 to 1988, airing 34 episodes that spanned two seasons. It is a spin-off of The Flintstones, and the sixth incarnation of the Flintstones franchise. A few months after the series finished, there was one special about anti-drugs called The Flintstone Kids "Just Say No" Special.
This series depicted the Flintstone and Rubble couples as junior high kids before they got married.
There were also three other segments usually every other episode: Flintstone Funnies, where the kids fantasized about some big daydream; Dino's Dilemmas, which starred Fred's pet, Dino; and Captain Caveman and Son, which was a show within a show, with the Flintstone Kids watching superhero Captain Caveman and his never before seen young son, Cavey Jr., fight crime in their own hometown of Bedrock.
There was also a PSA about kids wearing seatbelts, which is ironic since the first episode had Barney jumping around seatbelt-less in his dad's car.
