[[caption-width-right:212:The modern Iron Age family.]]
This animated series from HannaBarbera is about a DomCom family in "ancient" Rome. As on ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'', AnachronismStew is an essential part of this series--but the starting point is later.

The head of the family is Augustus Holiday. He has a wife, Laurie; a daughter, Precocia, and a son, Happius, or "Happy"/"Hap" for short—much like ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'' (although unlike that show, this family features an older brother and younger sister). Their pet lion, Brutus, is a BigEater.
