"One of the legendary lost albums of my college years was a "Flintstones Greatest Hits" that we were never able to track down despite much diligent searching. Because of this I decided to take matters into my own hands and employ the decidedly lo-fi technique of taping them directly from the television, something I had perfected in earlier years with Monkees songs. I used the taped songs as fillers in album or compilations that I made for friends and they were met with unanimous enthusiasm. Years later I was in a local Camelot Music store and happened across a cassette of this disc in the childrens section. I quickly snapped it up and wore it out over the next few months playing it in the car for my kids. After the tape died I found a copy of the CD, and I have yet to wear it out despite much use. This is a great collection, almost perfect except for a few ill- conceived songs like "Dino The Dinosaur" from the later years. This disc is packed with extras and is worth a complete listen if only for the rarities that sometimes follow as much as 20 seconds after a particular song ends. What made me write this review? Tonight my daughter and two friends did a dance and gymnastics bit in the school variety show. The song they chose? Why "The Bedrock Twitch" of course."
Have a yabba-dabba-doo time!

"What we have here is a CD of songs from the Flintstones television series. If you love the Flintstones as much as I do, you will love this CD. Most of the songs here will be familiar to anyone who grew up watching Flintstones reruns over and over again. In between the songs, they have inserted instrumental background music from the show. I love this CD, but there are several notable songs that are not included. There is nothing from the episodes featuring Hot Lips Hannigan, Ann-Margrock or the Swedish musicians. There is also one song that doesn't belong here, in my opinion, which is the awful "They'll Never Split Us Apart" from an Alice in Wonderland TV special. Despite those criticisms, I would recommend this CD to fans of the Flintstones."
