Quick – can you I.D. who the Flintstones are based on?

Do you know who inspired your favorite character?

The arrival of The Flintstones to MeTV has caused a wave of nostalgia to wash over viewers across the country. When you watch the show, you can't help but be taken back to cartoons as a kid, watching on Saturday mornings over a bowl of cereal in your favorite pajamas. 

To others, the Flintstones bring a different kind of nostalgia. This classic TV family reminds many of another show, with another set of friends who are just as charismatic and memorable. We're talking, of course, about the 1955 sitcom The Honeymooners. The show centered around the Kramdens and the Nortons, family friends who typically have to overcome Ralph Kramden's short-sighted mistakes. These sketches were sporadically produced until 1978, and supposedly provided the basis for America's Stone Age family.

We're curious to see if you can spot which character on The Honeymooners inspired each Flintstones main character. Can you I.D. who the Flintstones are based on? Good luck!

Watch The Flintstones on MeTV!

Anybody remember the one or two cartoon versions of The Honeymooners done by either Warner Bros. or Looney Tunes that appeared on the old Bugs Bunny Show (I think)?
Those were great! Those and the Abbott and Costello parody cartoon(s). Loved those!

Oops. I see I should have read through the entire thread first. My bad.
Please excuse me for being redundant! 😊

This was, like, so obvious, I knew which show they were talking about right away, and knew the answers to all of the questions before I even saw them. *Way* too easy!

You got 4 out of 4
Nice first 100 in a while. :)
The honeymooners would be a good show to see again as well. Even though before my time I have seen several of their episodes and they are funny.

You got 4 out of 4. Arguably their easiest quiz.

Heh. 😊 Thanks, enjoyed that. The "address the ball" bit still kills me! 😊
You're welcome!
Even Mrs. Howell stole it.
My favorite:
Ralph: Did you ever see pictures of me when I only weighed 200 pounds?
Ed: No, Ralph. I never saw any of your baby pictures!

"You wanna take a trip? You wanna go to the moon? One of these days Alice, pow! Right in the kisser."
You'd never get away with dialog like that today.

This was a stupid quiz. Only those who lived under a rock didn't know the show was sorta based on the Honeymooners. So even nominally knowing those characters it was really easy.

I remember watching the Honeymooners (reruns of course) and thought the show was great. Jackie Gleason played Ralph Kramden fantastically, he's quite the character!

Also 4/4. I enjoyed *both* "The Honeymooners" and "The Flintstones."

4/4; easy one for me - I am a big Honeymooners fan even if it was before my time.

Wasn't there also a cartoon with mice portraying Honey moonerish characters???
Yes, here it is: http://www.supercartoons.net/cartoon/764/the-honey-mousers.html
There were 3, with Daws Butler voicing both men.
My favorite "Honeymousers" short is "Cheese It - The Cat!"
The Honeymousers is mine, though they are all excellent.
I just love it when Alice belts the cat right in the face!

Ok, this one was a no-brainer.
