1966: Fred Flintstone’s entry in the spy craze

By 1966, everyone wanted to get a piece of the spy craze and cartoon producers/directors William Hanna and Joseph Barbera were no different. So H-B did a movie featuring The Flintstones becoming involved in a spy adventure. And in 1966, there wasn’t going to be a new James Bond movies so it was a good a time as any.

Here’s the start of the movie, released by Columbia Pictures (and with Wilma Flintstone subbing for the “Columbia Torch Lady”), with the voices of the original Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble, Alan Reed and Mel Blanc, not to mention the grand dame of cartoon voices, June Foray, and Harvey Korman.
