Watch it now
The Flintstones (1994)
Big-hearted, dim-witted factory worker Fred Flintstone (John Goodman) lends money to his friend Barney Rubble (Rick Moranis) so that he can adopt a baby. As thanks, Barney swaps his IQ test for Fred's during an executive search program. After getting promoted, however, Fred becomes embroiled in the dastardly scheming of his boss Cliff Vandercave (Kyle MacLachlan), who enlists his secretary, Sharon Stone (Halle Berry), to seduce Fred, angering Fred's wife, Wilma (Elizabeth Perkins).

FADE IN:

1 EXT. SLATE QUARRY -DAY 1

FRED FLINTSTONE, archetypical Everyman, sits atop his

faithful heavy-equipment dinosaur, cranking the winch

that makes the mighty beast rip and tear into the quarry

wall.

2 THE QUARRY FOREMAN 2

looks down at his wristwatch. Well... actually, it's a

wrist sundial. And it's magic time... quittin' time...

Millerock time!

Now the foreman turns from his watch to a steam whistle

bird, and yanks its tail. The BIRD SQUAWKS the end of

the workday -3

ANOTHER ANGLE 3

FRED:

YABBA DABBA DO --!

Fred happily discards his hard hat, leaps out of the

canvas-roofed cab on the dino's back, slides down the

tail and bounces right into the seat of his stone and

timber car! He gets up to a running start with the only

motor (his feet), slows to allow a "time clock" dinosaur

to punch his stone timecard, and then he's trotting back

up to speed and out of the gate! MUSIC comes UP and

OVER -MUSIC

(V.O.)

'Flintstones,

Meet the Flintstones,

They're a modern

Stone age fam-i-ly --'

--And so forth, as for the first time in "his-tor-y" we

see the Flintstones' OPENING CREDITS live!

4 TIGHT ON A MAILBOX 4

reading "FLINTSTONE." We WIDEN as Fred SKIDS to a halt

in the driveway of his three-bedroom ranch cave. A

moment later, WILMA and PEBBLES run out --both looking

just like they should --and get into the car. A beat

behind them are the Flintstone pets, Dino and the

saber-toothed cat.

Fred pauses, looks around... HONKS his HORN... BARNEY,

BETTY and BAM-BAM come out of the neighboring house, hop

in!
