Like "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol," the 1994 television version of "A Flintstone Christmas Carol" has the characters involved in a stage production of the classic tale by Charles Dickens. Actually that would be Charles Brickens, because this time around it is the Bedrock Community Theater. Wilma is the director and Fred is playing "Ebonyzer Scrooge," Barney is "Bob Cragit," Mr. Slate is the ghost of "Jacob Marbley," and Bam-Bam is Tiny Tim (some names are more sacred than others). The problem is that role goes to Fred's head in the worst way possible, which means Scrooge at the start and not at the end. Even worse, Fred is so preoccupied with his dreams of greatness on the stage and last minute Christmas shopping that he forgets Wilma's strict instructions about picking up Pebbles from daycare.
This means that not only does Scrooge have to deal with a trio of angry ghosts, but that Fred has to deal with Wilma, who is playing multiple roles so as not to miss the opportunity of getting in her licks at her husband. "A Flintstones Christmas Carol" is as much about the cartoon prehistoric family as it is the Dickens classic and they do a nice job of making the whole bit about Wilma being made at Fred work in the context of the original story. This is not as great as "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol," which has no sub-plot to deal with and the advantage of a pretty good musical score, but it is certainly enjoyable fare, especially for Flintstone's fans.
