Happy 50th anniversary to The Flintstones

The Flintstones debuted 50 years ago today on ABC on September 30, 1960. The show lasted six years until was cancelled. The last new episode aired on April 1, 1966.

The first episode to actually air was The Flintstone Flyer (see below) but the first one produced was The Swimming Pool.

Here is the first Flintstones episode that aired 50 years ago today: The Flintstone Flyer. Notice the very different early version of the opening theme.
