5. Bamm-Bamm’s bachelor party
In the 1993 TV movie Yabba Dabba Do! Bamm-Bamm Rubble and Pebbles Flintstone are getting married. Even though Bamm-Bamm and Barney aren’t biologically related, the two share a fondness of showgirls. At the bachelor party, it features exotic dancers and entertainers, and Barney tries his hand at dancing. Oh, boy.
6. Fred had a gambling problem
Gambling is without a doubt a real-life problem that puts many people’s lives and relationships at stake. There are also several instances throughout the series where Fred lies to Wilma about his gambling problem, specifically when he bets his entire paycheck and tells Wilma they’ve been robbed.
7. Barney’s suicide attempt
This is a bit of a heavier one that could go right over kid’s heads but stay with a parent forever. Barney is told that he loses the adoption rights to Bamm-Bamm and Fred has to stop his friend from jumping off a bridge. Thankfully, the episode does end on a happy note, and Barney and Betty learn that they can successfully and legally raise Bamm-Bamm in their family.
8. Fred’s baby venue mix-up
We’ll end this piece on a funnier note. We all know Fred Flintstone for having serious lapses in judgment from time to time (or in almost every episode). One of the most notable ones was when he thought Wilma was scheduled to give birth in the town’s hotel instead of the hospital. Barney brings Wilma to the hospital while Fred rushes to be there in time.
