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!
