Default The Flintstones Stone Age Smackdown

I didn't bother finishing this...

I like the use of the main theme and the original version of it, and John O' Hurley as Mr. Slate, he actually fits pretty well but the rest...

Ok, It's Barney I have a problem with, why is KMR changing the voice, I prefer Frank Welker and wish they kept him.

I was gonna review the last 20 minutes as well or whatever it was, but never watched it, but I enjoy the gags, like the garage door opener.

I don't get why they would cast KMR as Barney. He just... Doesn't seem to fit.

He's done voices that would suit Barney, and has been better in the past. His Cleveland Jr.. would have been better though.

Ever see Flinstones: On the Rocks? The TV movie made by the PowerpuffGirl team?

Kevin played Barney then too, and it was the same type of "pre-car crash Mel Blanc" voice that he's doing here, though there it sounded a bit more accurate if you ask me.

Anyways, loved this special. It's really given me an itch to see the Flintstones in something animated again, kinda in the veins of Scooby Doo and Tom & Jerry, where if they can't get a TV show, maybe some straight to DVD movies would be cool (assuming they're all around this quality). I really liked seeing how they kinda "modernized" the Flintstones here but still kept true to them being in the stone age (Stonebucks Coffee, the garage opener, though admittedly they kinda lost me with "Stone Tablets" and "Shell Phones")

I like Jeff Bergman a lot here. Fun fact, before he even started voicing Fred in Cartoon Network commercials, his initial job was playing Barney (alongside James Arnold Taylor who was Fred) in the Fruity Pebbles commercials. I think he's much better at these Flintstones roles than he is at his current Looney Tunes characters. KMR is hilarious as Barney, whether it be good or not, I just can't hate him.

Gonna miss James Arnold Taylor though, he's one of my favorites and I know Fred Flinstone is close to his heart, so it kinda saddens me that he hasn't gotten the part recently.

Since Scooby-Doo gets a crossover, should KISS get one with Flintstones as well?

I wouldn't bet on it.
