Has Anyone Found The Man Called Flintstone?
 
I know this has been asked all ready. But I was wondering if anyone has found it today. I looked all over, Borders claims it can be ordered and that it was released in December (original release) but none were in the store.

BestBuy.com claims it doesn't exist, but a few weeks ago it said it did exist.

I had my copy since it's original December date. It was delayed until March 22 (today). Should be copies available.

Has anyone found it?

I looked at 3 Best Buys, a Borders, a Wal-Mart, a Circuit City and a Coconuts with no luck :(

The title was pulled, but some copies apparently still made it out.

The Monkees 03-23-05 03:11 PM

Why was it pulled?

I've heard that Wal-Mart is your best bet, but not in the kids' area like you'd expect. Try New Releases. I'm going to look at my local superstore tomorrow if I get the time.

Sweet :), Even though I tried at one Wal-Mart I will look at two others tomorrow!

I'm happy to report this DVD does exist. Many e-tailers pulled it and I have yet to find a BM store have it, but i got in on ebay and its the official Warner release.

For those of you who haven't seen it, you really should. Its a great film that seems to have been lost. It was a threatrical release with all the original Flintstone talent.

Why was it pulled in the first place?

Eric D. 05-05-05 06:48 PM

I got it as well.

NobleRabbit 05-05-05 07:20 PM

FWIW, I just had one delivered today from BestBuy.com (14.99 + 1.49 S&H). I wanted it way back then... was just looking around earlier this week, saw it still listed, took a chance & ordered it.

The Monkees 11-12-05 05:20 PM

I did eventually get mine way back when from eBay

Cameron 11-12-05 11:36 PM

best buy has it?....weird.

JiM T 11-12-05 11:40 PM

This has been one of the more strangly unobtainable DVDs I've ever had on my want-list. Guess it's time to start checking around for it again.

whotony 11-13-05 01:12 AM

hmm, odd it is available at bb.com.

whotony 11-13-05 01:16 AM

Warner had to pull it because they don't have clear rights to it, in the U.S. anyway. The movie was originally released by Columbia Pictures.

Best Buy in Canada has had copies for months. According to www.bestbuy.ca titles still in stores also available from the web.

dx23 10-01-08 10:57 AM
