Behind the scenes

  • Incidentally, Fred and Wilma also had a Rock Vegas marriage in the animated TV movie I Yabba-Dabba Do!
  • Fred mentions going to work at Slate and Company setting up his future job.
  • Gazoo alludes to the Disney film Aladdin.
  • Bronto King is a parody of Burger King. Similarly in the last film, McDonald's was parodied with RocDonald's.
  • Jurassic Park the Ride is a parody of the film Jurassic Park, which Steven Spielberg directed, with Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment distributing and producing respectively; in the previous film there was an actual park/playground called Jurassic Park.
  • Post's cereal Fruity Pebbles makes an in-universe appearance.
  • Roca-Cola is a parody of Coca-Cola.
  • Chip and Roxie seem to be an allusion to the children of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm, who were born in the unrelated animated TV movie Hollyrock-a-Bye Baby.
  • Mick Jagged and the Stones are a parody of Mick Jagger and his band, the Rolling Stones.
  • Chip has prehistoric paintings of American Gothic, Nighthawks, and The Scream.
  • One of the wanted posters in the Rock Vegas jail has a picture of Joseph Barbera.
  • Harvey Korman was the voice of the Great Gazoo in the sixth and final season of The Flintstones.
  • "Viva Rock Vegas" sung by Ann-Margret is both an allusion to the 1964 film she starred in Viva Las Vegas, and the time she guest-starred as Ann-Margrock in The Flintstones episode "Ann-Margrock Presents."
  • Irwin Keyes reprises his role of Joe Rockhead from the previous film, making him the only actor to play the same role in both movies. Harvey Korman and Rosie O'Donnell both appeared in the previous film, but as the dictabird and Betty, instead.


  • If Wilma is so rich, then why does she act like Fred's promotion and subsequent raise and bonus is a big change for her in the previous film?

Everlasting influence

  • In the Family Guy episode "Tom Tucker: The Man and His Dream," The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas is Peter's favorite period film.
