* KnightOfCerebus: Cliff Vandercave darkens the tone of a family oriented movie, having no funny moments and being a straight up greedy sociopath willing to ruin other people's life to cover his dark plans. His most hated move [[spoiler: is kidnapping Pebbles and Bamm Bamm in order to blackmail Fred and Barney and trying to get rid of them anyway once his demands are satisfied.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RoleReprisal: In the Latin American Spanish dub, Fred and Barney's Mexican voice actors from many of their animated works since the 70's, Arturo Mercado and Francisco Colmenero, respectively reprised their roles in the movie. This is especially relevant because the dub of the film was recorded at Ultra Video, a Spanish-speaking studio in Los Angeles, and they brought them out straight from Mexico precisly for this in mind. The Los Angeles casting directors assumed that Jorge Arvizu (Fred) and Julio Lucena (Barney) had both passed away (in truth, Arvizu was semi-retired, but Lucena had died in 1985 from cardiac arrest).

Fred loans some money from his and Wilma's bank account to Barney so that he and Betty can adopt a child. After the Rubbles adopt a cave boy named Bamm-Bamm, Barney decides to pay Fred back. Later, Cliff Vandercave (Creator/KyleMacLachlan), an executive vice-president at the Slate & Co. quarry, has the workers take an exam, offering vice-presidency to whoever gets the highest score. When Barney sees that Fred got the lowest score on the exam, he trades scores with him as payback, and Fred ends up becoming a vice-president because Barney's was the highest score. Unfortunately, Fred's first duty as vice-president is to fire Barney because he (or rather, Fred) got the lowest score. With Barney unable to get a new steady job, the Rubbles have to move in with the Flintstones, causing tension to mount between the families. As if that isn't enough, Cliff plans to embezzle the company out of billions of dollars and frame Fred for it...
