* ClamshellCurrency: The characters use whole clams as money. It doubles as a {{Pun}}, since "clams" was slang for "money" at the time the show was made.

** Dino is a pretty startling example. In his debut episode, he has a different colour (blue instead of magenta), usually walks on his hind legs, and can not only talk but can act and fast-talk people with a vocabulary to match. At the end of the episode, he goes home with the Flintstones and becomes theit butler... and then turns into a [[AllAnimalsAreDogs dog]] with only the usual level of cartoon animal intelligence (in that he can understand the exact sentences people say and act upon them, but is never seen to be able to talk).

** The Gruesomes, based on the popular DuelingShows ''Series/TheAddamsFamily'' and ''Series/TheMunsters'', but the producer probably couldn't get the rights for any of both.

* AccidentalPervert: No, really. A particularly [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar radar-dodging]] moment from an early episode featured Fred (needing to meet Wilma at a dress-making store she's currently visiting) borrowing a trampoline from Barney to play a joke on Wilma by bouncing through a window on the upper level of the store when he gets there. Unfortunately, when he gets there with the trampoline he bounces up to the window he thinks Wilma is standing at....and instead sees a (fortunately still clothed) woman in a dressing room. (Much to his and said woman's horror.) Wilma is most displeased once she finds out that the "[[PeepingTom man in the window]]" is Fred, even after he explains himself.

Like many very popular shows from the 1960s and 1970s, ''The Flintstones'' just [[LongRunners would not die]]. It survived cancellation in any number of subsequent forms, from Saturday morning cartoons featuring teenaged versions of Bamm-Bamm and Pebbles (the latter voiced by Sally Struthers) through a pair of live-action motion pictures, all the way to a breakfast cereal which is still marketed in the early 21st century (and which is the occasion for continuous ''new'' Flintstones animation), plus the chewable vitamins. The year 2016 in particular saw a resurgence of the franchise in multiple media: first, a Chinese bootleg of the NES game ''VideoGame/TheFlintstonesTheRescueOfDinoAndHoppy'' received MemeticMutation on the Internet (especially the theme song) thanks to the works of WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} and Music/GiIvaSunner. Unrelated to that, the series also got the same year a DarkerAndEdgier reboot as [[ComicBook/TheFlintstones comic book]] published by Creator/DCComics.
