We’ve been so dedicated to regularly updating the old Blog, and tending to the business of everyday life, that the Christmas Holiday just sorta snuck up on us! But, let’s rectify that.
Forty eight years after the fact, 1964’s “Christmas Flintstone” is still my favorite animated holiday treat.
See it in this DVD set.
…Or, read it in this COMIC!

Beyond that, the celebrated Hanna-Barbera blogger YOWP posts on it HERE.
YOWP gives us lots of great backgrounds used in the original production, and look for an outstanding comment by our friend “Scarecrow33” concerning the Flintstone characters celebrating Christmas in the Stone Age.

And, then I can flash-forward to 2010 to see FAMILY GUY’s Brian and Stewie totally screw it up, before even *they* manage to “save Christmas” themselves in the hour-long special episode “Road to the North Pole”, as seen on the DVD set pictured below.
Considering that THE FLINTSTONES begat FAMILY GUY (presumably by way of THE SIMPSONS), watching these two superb (each in their own way) episodes back-to-back sorta brings us “Full-Christmas-Circle”!
