Baby Boomer Fun: The Flintstones Brought to You By Winston

07/19/07

Thursday is Baby Boomer Day on our blog, so here goes, this week's selection.

The Flintstones premiered on prime time TV in September of 1960. Scheduled for Friday nights at 8:30 PM, it had the aura of an "event" for me. Viewing became a ritual in our house, my father would make popcorn, and all of us would watch the show, in glorious black and white, on our Magnavox TV. (Pictured at right through the magic of the internet).

To the best of my knowledge, the video clip below, (80 seconds), is the closing sequence for the show, and is quite a window into cultural standards at the time. Barney and Fred are the slacker husbands, while Wilma and Betty do the yard work. By the end of the day however, all is well as Fred affectionately lights up a Winston for Wilma.
