    And how will the "Politically Correct" garbage and egotistical morons
    ruin this old show? Well, for a start it's being updated to the Bronze
    Age rather than the Stone Age. :-\

    From ComingSoon.net ...

    Flintstones Project Bedrock Starring Elizabeth Banks Headed to Fox
    Fox and Elizabeth Banks are inviting America to once again meet
    The Flintstones in Bedrock, a new adult-animated take on the
    long-running Hanna-Barbera classic that mixes The Honeymooners
    with prehistoric living. The new show, which was first announced
    back in 2019, will pick up twenty years past the original series
    and star a 20-something Pebbles voiced by Banks and a version of
    Fred entering retirement.

    More details were revealed about the show via Deadline, including
    the concept of bringing the first family of Bedrock out of their
    comfort zone. "With the Stone Age giving way to an enlightened new
    Bronze Age, the residents of Bedrock will find this evolution
    "harder than a swing from Bamm-Bamm's club."

    This is Fox's second attempt at a primetime Flintstones revival.
    At the height of his power at the network, Family Guy creator Seth
    McFarlane received a straight-to-series order for his own
    interpretation of the classic show, but Fox rescinded the deal
    after reading early scripts. When asked about the series in a
    Reddit AMA, Seth admitted that he had trouble formulating his
    version of the show. "As of now, probably not. Honestly, I couldn't
    figure out a way to find enough differentiation between a
    modern-day Fred Flintstone and... Peter Griffin."

    Animation buffs will remember that this is not the first time that
    The Flintstones has stretched beyond the original primetime run in
    the 1960s. The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show spun off from
    The Flinstones on the CBS Saturday Morning lineup in the early 70s,
    depicting a similarly grown-up version of the Flintstone kids (no,
    not The Flintstone Kids). The pair's story would end with a string
    of TV movies starting with I Yabba-Dabba Do! that depicted the
    couple getting married and having children. It's unclear at this
    time if Bedrock will contradict the previous Flintstones continuity,
    but there will almost assuredly be superfans at the ready to let us
    know as soon as the show airs in the coming years.
