which studio owns these anyway??..

With the success of The Simpsons you'd think someone in marketing department would figure out there's $$$ to be made with Fred,Wilma,Barney,Betty,Pebbles, Bam Bam, and Dino also

I believe AOL-Time Warner owns all of the Hanna-Barbera cartoons, through their purchase of the Turner library a few years back.

You would think, but sometimes it seems they are so slow. I would love to see these on DVD. How many seasons and episodes were there?

DavidH,

It appears there were 6 seasons (60–66). Here is a link for more Flintstone's information

Welcome to the board.

When posting threads like this in the future, don't forget the ? in the subject title, please. Not putting anybody down or anything, I just got excited there for a moment!

This is a series that should be on DVD! The marathons always do well on Cartoon Network, don't they?

...and you would also think that it wouldn't be all too inconvenient for people to incorporate question marks into the subjects of threads that are questions, but that doesn't seem to happen, either.

I've said this in a previous Flinstones post but, as great as it would be to have the Flintstones on DVD, it won't happen anytime soon, just because that would actually make sense, lol. Whoever owns the Flinstones rights, hasn't had an ounce of intelligence in marketing the dvd's so far. The best example, and probably the only example, is the two Flinstone movies on DVD. The one with John Goodman, and then the Viva Rock Vegas crapfest. It's extremely hard to come by the original Flintstones movie while Viva Rock Vegas is continued to be carried in most stores in abundance. Doesn't make sense to me but, it proves to me one thing, Flintstones is going to be a 'downer' for a while when it comes to seeing it make its way to DVD.

mzupeman2, the live-action Flintstones movies you talk about are owned by Universal, who has no idea what they're doing re: DVDs. The series, however, are owned by AOL-Time Warner, who are better with their DVDs than Universal.

Well, that's certainly good to know. Now I'm back to the drawing board on this whole issue. Flintstones shoulda been out by now
