4.0 out of 5 stars Christmas in Bedrock!, 3 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Flintstone's Christmas Carol [DVD] (DVD)
I watched this a while back on VHS and wasn't overly impressed. However when the DVD was released I had to have it to add to my 'Christmas Carol' collection. The inclusion of another Christmas episode from 1964 was the clincher!

I re-watched it last week and have to say that my first impression was wrong - it was quite entertaining second time around! Not as good as Mr Magoo's Christmas Carol [DVD] [1962] but enjoyable none the less. The story centres around Fred's local am-dram putting on a Bedrock version of A Christmas Carol. This was made in 1994 as opposed to the original series of the 1960s.

The second epiosde on the DVD is entitled Christmas Flintstone from 1964. This has Fred as the Santa at the local mall, Macyrock! I really enjoyed this as the memories of watching the Flintstones as a kid came flooding back.

I've given the DVD 4 out of 5 but had it just had 'Carol' I would rate it 3.5 out of 5. Just a pity the manufacturers didn't mention the extra episode on the front of the cover. BTW the running time for the DVD is approximately 90 minutes which makes it excellent value for money compared to other seasonal releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fred Flintstone has as much to learn as Ebenezer Scrooge, 21 Nov 2003
By

(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (VINE VOICE)   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars re live my childhood, 28 Jan 2011
This review is from: Flintstone's Christmas Carol [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this DVD as I had it on video and so I replaced it and now I can enjoy the flintsones once again at christmas and i do hope they release the other christmas flintstones I know christmas is coming when i watch this and fred flintsone is is usual self by thinking he is the only actor in the play where he is playing scrooge and every one slowly come down with a illness and willma who is doing costumes, lighting looking after pebbles has to step in on the stage to play the people that have been taken ill and by the end the penny drops with Fred a feel good story.
