To be fair though, they can't be doing that bad, if we are still talking about their creation nearly years later. He has a job even though he has no discernible skills, he has a home even though he is terrible with money, and he has a gorgeous wife and beautiful family, even though he is kind of a jerk.
Slate down at the rock quarry tells him too.
Now I realize that a request from a spouse is a little different than a command from a superior at work. However, given the fact that when it comes to Wilma, Fred is an undeserving amoeba, he should have acquiesced when his wife asked him to do something charitable.
Everything worked out in the end, as the kids got their stocky Santa Fred and Wilma's husband came through in the clutch.

But wouldn't it have been nice if he would have done it just for his doting wife and not because his boss Mr. Slate made him Yabba Dabba Do it? Naturally, Fred wasn't going to take the honor of starring in the town's Christmas play lightly, so he immediately started acting like a prima donna. Then real disaster struck and several of the Bedrock players were struck with the "Bedrock Bug," and the only person who knew their roles well enough to step in was, of course, Wilma.
So with a husband acting like a jerk and a show full of sick actors, Wilma stepped up and made the show amazing by taking on all of the sick actors roles and maintaining her stage managerial responsibilities. All while teaching her selfish husband Fred the real meaning of Christmas.
By the end of the show, the town was entertained and Fred realized that Christmas is really about friends and family, not about who stars in the town's Christmas show. Not bad for a woman juggling motherhood, a job, and a foolish husband. With Fred and Wilma's marriage on the rocks, advertising executive Pebbles and auto mechanic Bam Bam decided to tie the knot.
A foolish Fred Flintstone decides to bet the farm on a get-rich-quick real estate scheme that winds up backfiring, so he loses all the money earmarked for his daughter's wedding. When Wilma figures out what happened, her and Fred fight so badly that Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm decide to skip town for Vegas to get married in relative peace.
Fred and Barney follow their kids to the desert to try and talk some sense into them and, in the process, Barney wins enough money to cover the original wedding. But then, in classic Fred fashion, he blows that money chasing the white elephant.
It's crazy what Hanna-Barbera ask poor Wilma to put up with. Fred, Wilma, Barney, and Betty won a contest for a free vacation to Dr. Frankenstone's Castle in Rocksyvania. Once they arrive, everyone else in the place is scared away by the real Dr, Frankenstone and his vampire friend Rockula.
Rockula then saw Wilma and mistook her for his vampire bride. Wilma, with the help of Fred, Barney, and Betty, is able to escape the bleak fate and together they made back home. Rockula followed after Wilma in bat form and appeared in the kitchen of the Flintstone family home, begging her to reconsider and come be his vampire bride. However, the cigarette company is still around and kicking today, owned by Imperial and Japan Tobacco.
Back in the s having a cartoon character being the face of a cigarette company was commonplace Joe Camel, anyone? Even Archer, the hard-drinking crime-fighting spy with one of the most adult shows on TV, isn't out there hawking Marlboros.
Of course, smoking is a filthy habit, but dragging your loving wife down with you just make a few extra dollars is not cool. Can you imagine what it is like having toddlers with Bamm-Bamm's strength running around?
Wilma Flintstone must be one strong granny. I'm sure she was ecstatic to become a grandmother and see her only child become a mother, but with grandchildren as strong as Bamm-Bamm, I am certain there was quite a bit of apprehension. Bamm-Bamm was a wonderful child, but seeing him lift Barney up and handle him any which way must have put the fear of god into Wilma, who was preparing to help raise his seed as a grandmother to his double helping of super children.
I wish all the happiness in the world to Pebbles, Bamm-Bamm and the kids, but I also have all the sympathy in the world for poor grandma Wilma, who has already cleaned up more than her fair share of Flintstone messes.
For better or for worse, he has been the biggest drag on her as a person, as a mother, and as a character. The show liked to default back to the idea that all of his horrible behavior happened because he loved her so much.
The Flintstones Meet Rockula and Frankenstone - Wikipedia
But love is not stifling every single creative outlet a partner has and telling them they belong in the kitchen. Fred is just bad news when it comes to Wilma and her well being.
I don't mean to insult years worth of classic TV, but Fred was kind of a monster and I don't just mean that because he was a caveman. He was a textbook abusive husband which apparently passed for cute in the 60s, but, init is just downright scary. As Fred raises the statuette to strike, both Rockula and Frankenstone fall through the trapdoor, and the Flintstones and Rubbles escape and return to Bedrock.
Wilma invites Betty and Barney to stay for dinner and leaves the three of them in the living room while she goes into the kitchen to cook. Unbeknownst to them, Rockula has flown in the form of a bat all the way from Rocksylvania to Bedrock. Flying through the kitchen window, he begs Wilma to marry him, promising her a life of luxury if she agrees. Winking at Fred, Barney and Betty watching surreptitiously from the doorwayWilma agrees to consider marrying Rockula, then immediately begins nagging him about chores, upkeep of the house, and his bad habits.
Aghast, Rockula apparently forgetting that most chores would be left to the servants changes back into a bat and flies off, claiming to need another years of rest.
Barney laughs and lauds Wilma for defeating Rockula by telling him "the real truth about married life". Rockula and Frankenstone[ edit ] Count Rockula: Having been asleep for five hundred years, Rockula is awoken by Frankenstone and sets out to clear his castle of the guests and take Wilma, whom he thinks is his bride, for himself, even if it means killing Fred.
Count Rockula also appears in the episodes "Blood Brothers" and "Fred and Barney Meet the Frankenstones" of The New Fred and Barney Show, again voiced by Stephenson, albeit in a completely different continuity because Rockula then has a bride, slightly different garments, and a pet werewolf despite having a fear for them in this movie.
Count Rockula's unfinished creation, awoken prematurely when lightning strikes the machinery in Rockula's lab. His only mission in life is to carry out Rockula's orders, primarily to keep werewolves away from Rockula, although his low IQ often leads him to find difficulty in accomplishing even the simplest of tasks in one particular scene, Frankenstone is ordered to search some barrels for Fred, and fails to notice Fred crouching right beside him.
