Today is a special day in the cartoon world – It’s the 50th anniversary of the first airing of “The Flinstones.” The Flintstones ran from September 30, 1960 to April 1, 1966 on ABC.

Google has decided to pay tribute to the fellow Bedrock residents with a doodle on their home page in order to thank them for thinking outside the box – which is exactly what they did. A world virtually free of emissions, no greenhouse gases, no “potential” hole in the ozone layer – a great, green utopian place to live. Sure it wouldnt be ideal to drive to work using your feet, but how cool would it be to have your own pet dinosaur and a saber-tooth tiger…

Tthe Flinstones have been an inspiration to many other cartoons and led the way to many new creative ideas. The best rememberance of the Flinstones, for me, would have to be when homer sang his own rendition of the theme song.. Classic.

Congrats to ABC, and all the writers, artists, and everyone else that dedicated time and effort into this cartoon…. Now I need to wait 27 more years before I can write about 50th anniversary of the simpsons…

This was pretty difficult to find on youtube – sorry for the bad quality – however its a great song icon smile Yabba Dabba Google!
