Telephones appear to be widely available but in Mr Slate's office a talking bird is used as an intercom. Also, a monkey is used to play a jingle on the doorbell when its tail is pulled, yet even in relatively modern times doorbells are rung simply by pulling on a cord. See more »
Before Santa lets Fred wear his suit after he gets injured, Fred was wearing the Santa costume that he was supposed to wear to the party. But at the end when Santa got his Suit back, Fred was wearing his regular Clothes. See more »
The Christmas episode of the Flintstones was better than this. In fact aside from that and the Flintstone Christmas Carol, the other two Flintstone Christmas episodes left much to be desired. One big problem I had was Santa Claus. If this was the stone age, and everyone was walking around in there bare feet, why wouldn't Santa Claus? Even in the Flintstone Christmas episode, the Santas didn't have any boots on. I almost saw Santa in this like Gazoo was in the Flintstones -- coming from the future into the past to deliver toys. If Fred and Barney knew what boots were (Fred says to Barney, "Grab a boot"), and didn't question why Santa wore boots or what they were, then couldn't producers have made the Flintstones and their characters wear shoes and boots, even in their TV show? Another problem I had was that Fred and Barney were supposed to deliver toys in one night and made it back for the Christmas Party. I know the sleigh was on super-speed, but even so, the party should have ended long before Fred and Barney were done. Within seconds, the gifts for several countries were delivered. Even the spoiled brat kids were annoying in waiting for Santa. Other than all these problems, it was a fine cartoon, when it ended.
