The Flintstones script
Synopsis: 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).

The Xenosaurus grabs its sack and some silverware spills

out. Then it runs off into the bushes and out of sight.

8 WITH THAT GARBAGE TRUCK 8

It reaches the crest of a hill where there's a "WELCOME

TO BEDROCK" billboard which bears greetings from the

Rotary Club, the Chamber of Commerce, and (of course)

The Loyal Order of Water Buffaloes. The garbage truck

guys drop their feet down through the floorboard and

trot over the rise, coast down to the street below.

The driver yanks a wooden brake and the truck stops, and

the rear guys hop off. One of them waves to -

9 A MILKMAN 9

who returns the wave, then takes a four-pack of stone

bottles out of his milk truck, heads towards a doorway.

As the milkman drops off the milk, he passes a big

TORTOISE with trash cans on its back. The Tortoise

nods familiarly to the milkman, then it waddles down the

curb, CAMERA FOLLOWING. The garbage men take the cans

off the Tortoise's back, dump them into the truck.

10 REAR OF TRUCK 10

--revealing that the back of the truck is actually a

giant-jawed CREATURE strapped onto the chassis. The

garbage men dump the cans into its maw... it happily

swallows the works, licks its lips, BELCHES.

11 BACK TO SCENE 11

The garbagemen slam the cans back on the Tortoise, who

winces as they drive off.

TORTOISE:

(under his breath)

You can forget about a tip for

Christmas...

It waddles back up the lawn... passing by a wooden "lawn

timer" box which now pops open.

Inside the box is a "ROOSTERSAURUS" which CROWS and flaps

its wings. The motion of the wings knocks loose two

round stones which roll down two long troughs a la Rube

Goldberg...
