The Flintstones turns 50!

Boomerang, Cartoon Network's 24-hour commercial-free classic animation network, will suspend its normal programming schedule later this month to mark the 50th Anniversary of prime time television's first-ever animated series: THE FLINTSTONES.


On Thursday, Sept. 30, the network will present the first full episode of THE FLINTSTONES (1960-1966) ever enjoyed by viewing families The Flintstone Flyer at 8:30 p.m. (ET), 50 years exactly to the date and hour of the original series premiere in 1960 on ABC network television. This will be followed immediately by two additional landmark episodes,The Hot Piano (9 p.m.) and The Blessed Event (9:30 p.m.) and the Columbia Pictures animated feature film, The Man Called Flintstone (10 p.m.).


Then on Saturday, Oct. 2, Boomerang will launch a 24-hour marathon starting at 6 a.m. (ET) that will feature 50 of the greatest, most beloved episodes hand-selected by the Cartoon Network/Boomerang programmers. Additionally, CartoonNetwork.com will showcase a free online game, Bedrock Bowling, which challenges players to help Fred improve his game and earn a perfect score.
