“A Place Right Out of HIS-TOR-REE!”

As if we needed proof that Hanna-Barbera’s THE FLINTSTONES was about a family that existed in a long-ago and far-away time, the likes of which we’ll never see again, consider this:

In the opening title/theme credit sequence, Fred and family go to a DRIVE-IN MOVIE!

And, in the closing sequence, they stop off at a fast food restaurant with CAR HOP SERVICE!

Dude, that’s like “ancient history”, man!

...and loved every minute of that historic cartoon. Wish I had BOMERANG or wished my wife didn't think it was immature to still want to watch it.

MY wife DOES think it’s “immature” to want to watch it – and other older, classic cartoons! But, since she enjoys many of the “horrible things” on TLC… who cares! That’s what makes the world go round!

We didn’t have Boomerang until just this May… and, though I check in on it frequently, most of what I would want to watch there I already have on DVD! And THAT is the best way to enjoy it!

If only WHV would release the remaining seasons of HUCKLEBERRY HOUND to DVD! That’s what brings me back to Boomerang more than anything else.
