Inappropriate moments have been placed throughout kids shows since we can remember. It could be a simple innuendo that goes right over kids’ heads or just a more relatable situation that the parents can relate to. The Flintstones was no exception to this rule and there are tons of inappropriate moments we may have all missed!
You might be surprised at some of these inappropriate moments and might even knock yourself for not noticing in the first place! Here are 8 of those moments from The Flintstones.
1. Wilma and Fred’s troubled marriage
Throughout the series, one of the main parts of the plot includes Fred and Wilma’s arguing. The problems the two are arguing about usually stem from typical issues with married couples, which is used to help parents relate to the show a bit more. In the TV movie Flintstones On the Rocks, Fred and Wilma are even seen going to marriage counseling.
2. Fred and Barney’s love for showgirls… and lying to their wives
Remember when the Loyal Order of the Water Buffaloes hired showgirls for their party? Fred and Barney told their wives they were going to a convention, but Betty and Wilma ended up at the same venue. Oops!
3. Betty and Barney’s infertility problems
After the Flintstones welcomed their newborn daughter Pebbles into the world, we learn that Betty and Barney were unable to have children of their own. The concept of infertility was an idea that the younger viewer wouldn’t be able to understand, but it most definitely weighed heavy on the parents who were tuning in. Things, fortunately, turn a more positive note when the Rubbles adopt Bamm-Bamm into their family!
4. Dino’s one-night stand
Dino, the Flintstones’ pet, is remembered to engage in a one-night stand with another dinosaur. He falls in love with her and they decide to take their relationship to the next stage and have a litter of dinosaur puppies. What makes the entire situation that much weirder? We never hear about the litter of dinosaur puppies again. Could this suggest that the couple never intended on keeping the kids?
