Some time before the Simpsons and Springfield, the Griffins and Quahog, or in any event, when the Belchers began serving burgers on Ocean Avenue, there were the Flintstones and Bedrock.

Their engraving on the animation universe is critical and adjusting it for the present crowd is a test we here at Fox are anticipating taking on with Warner Bros., Elizabeth, and Lindsay. No pressing factor at all, truly.

Peter Girardi, WBA’s evp for elective programming, added:

The Flintstones are the principal group of early evening animation. Elizabeth and Lindsay have a tremendous interpretation of these characters and Fox and Brownstone are the ideal accomplices to take them back to prime time television.
