About This Quiz

If you can yabba-dabba-doo with the best of them, take this quiz to test your stone-age knowledge.

Never intending to be a realistic depiction of life in the stone-age, the Flintstones were more like a modern stone-age family (with dinosaurs!) The series was a fictionalized portrayal of life in the "real" world, with struggles that included work, relationships and finances, albeit in a way that was definitely not so serious. 

"The Flintstones" remains a popular television show; so popular, in fact, that Seth McFarlane ("Family Guy" and "American Dad!") was looking into reviving the show in 2011. Unfortunately, McFarlane's golden touch did not extend to a reboot of "The Flintstones," and he abandoned the project in 2013. We can still dream, though!

The series featured the voices of such comedic greats as Mel Blanc (Barney Rubble and Dino,) Harvey Korman (The Great Gazoo) and Alan Reed (Fred Flintstone.) The show spawned several spin-off series, none of which were particularly successful. However, the 1994 live-action film starring John Goodman as Fred, Rick Moranis as Barney, Elizabeth Perkins as Wilma and Rosie O'Donnell as Betty, was relatively successful. A second live-action film, in 2000, was a bomb.
