Yabba-Dabba-Doo! The Flintstones are coming to MeTV!

Meet The Flintstones on MeTV!
America’s first family of animated comedy is coming to MeTV!
Premiering on Monday, September 30, fifty-nine years to the day from its very first telecast, The Flintstones will air on MeTV weeknights, with back-to-back episodes starting at 6PM | 5C. Yes, that means Bedrock and Mayberry are now neighbors.
For the first time since the prehistoric era, Fred and Wilma, Barney and Betty and the rest of the gang are back on national broadcast network TV. So get ready to rock… Bedrock!
When The Flintstones premiered in the fall of 1960, it shook up television like a slab of dinosaur ribs slapped on the side of a car. Never before had there been a primetime, cartoon sitcom. Additionally, it was the first animated series to earn a nomination for the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. The cartoon featured the voice talents of familiar MeTV faces such as Bea Benaderet (Petticoat Junction) and Howard Morris (The Andy Griffith Show).
Today, the Flintstones are global icons and the, er, bedrock of the Hanna-Barbera empire. After six seasons, the show spawned spin-offs, movies, toys, comic books, vitamins, cereals, merchandise and more.
Stay tuned for more information — and more fun — surrounding the Flintstones!
Watch The Flintstones on MeTV!
Sundays at 10 AM*available in most MeTV markets
Can you also bring back the 1960-70's classic, Dark Shadows? Would love to see that series again.
Hopefully more changes are coming soon, I am a HUGE fan of MeTV and post my love for you on Twitter regularly but the endless reruns of some shows are making it hard to keep tuning in.
Tarzan (not the Disney version)
Bugs Bunny and Roadrunner show
Valley of the Dinosaurs
Thundarr the Barbarian
Shazam/Isis Power Hour (not the terrorist group! the Egyptian superheroine of the 1970s)
Star Trek animated series
Sid and Marty Kroft shows (Far Out Space Nuts, The Lost Saucer, Sigmund and the Sea Monsters)
The Banana Splits
And there's still so much more. Back in the day, there were three networks of Saturday morning cartoons. Too many to squeeze into one channel. But to restore retro Saturday mornings would be awesome.
PS: So glad to have MeTV back in the SF bay area!
I was in elementary school at the time, and I remember that our paperboy would time his collecting so that he'd collect from Mom for that week's newspaper (57 cents), then sit down on the floor and join my brother, sister and me for both Flintstones and Jetsons. (I don't remember if he started with just Flintstones or not). By the time I started 7th grade, I took over his paper route and he went on to other things, even though we were the same age.
I LOVE MeTV.
