The Flintsones

Has DL ever had a deep dive discussion on this show?

Let's start off with the obvious. What did Wilma and Betty see in Barney and Fred?

They were straight guys with jobs.

I worshipped Wilma and Betty, pre-Rosie O’Donnell.

A brilliant take on the dreary "Honeymooners," which was depressing. What a shithole the Kramdens lived in. How poor could they be? What was the rent on a dump like that? Five bucks? That's the best they could do?

At least Fred and Barney had houses.

Bam Bam and Elroy were teenage time traveling boyfriends.

As (an even more of) a child when this episode originally aired (1960s?), I was confused about exactly 'how' "Bam-Bam" was conceived. IIRC, he had magically materialized in a bed of rocks, dressed in animal-prints wear, and the size of a two-year-old.

Bam-bam was hot.

Does that get me into trouble with #ROSEARMY? Oh, wait, no--some of her best friends are pedos!

Yes, r10, the DL librarian is always tsk-tsking, collecting pencils, sighing, muttering to herself, then going home to bed and having an Ovaltine while petting her old cat that has glaucoma.

OP asked: “Has DL ever had a deep dive discussion on this show?”

So I provided a link as evidence that the answer to her question is “Yes.”

And I get called nasty names for trying to be helpful and contribute something of value.

Fuck off.

Oh, dear. You know the DL librarian feels cranky and unappreciated when she snaps, "Fuck off."

We're sorry. Thank you for ALL your help.
