Fun With Scissors - part 48

I wonder how many kids these days know Barney Rubble only from the Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles cereal boxes and commercials. How many of them are familiar with "The Flintstones"? It seems like "The Flintstones" was the Saturday morning equivalent of tv royalty when I was growing up. There was a new show with those characters every season, plus all of the syndicated reruns which seemed to be on all the time. Now, sadly, nothing. Thank goodness for all those DVD box sets, so my own kids can get a classic education.

Fortunately as a kid growing up in the '80s, The Flintstones reruns were still on TV for me every day! Even when Cartoon Network came around, kids were able to watch that stuff. It's a shame The Flintstones are only found on Boomerang these days. But you're right about the DVDs... good thing they're finally available!

Excellent Barney, by the way!
