Bedrock - Prehistoric town featured on
the animated cartoon series THE FLINTSTONES/ABC/1960-66. Bedrock
(pop. 2500) is the home of Fred Flintstone, a quarry worker and his
wife, Wilma. They live at 201 Cobblestone Way in Cobblestone County,
Bedrock 70777. Also living with the Flintstone's are their two pets,
a purple Snorkasaurus named
Dino and a saber-toothed cat named "Baby
Puss." The Flintstones's best friends and next-door neighbors are
Barney and Betty Rubble.
Fred and Wilma later had a bouncing baby
red-haired girl named Pebbles [her first words were "Abba Gabba Goo"].
Barney and Betty then adopted a powerful towheaded baby boy left on
their doorsteps. They called him Bam Bam.
Years later, Pebbles and
Bam married each other. They had twins: Roxy, a towhead who
inherited her father's super strength and Chip, a redheaded boy. The
Flintstone's other next-door neighbors were the Gruesomes: Wierdly,
Creepella and their son Goblin.
Theme Song Lyrics
Flintstones... Meet the Flintstones,
They're a modern stone age family.
From the town of Bedrock,
They're a page right out of history.
Let's ride with the family down the street.
Thru the courtesy of Fred's two feet.
When you're with the Flintstones,
have a yabba dabba doo time,
a dabba doo time,
we'll have a gay old time.
Like most town's, Bedrock had a number of businesses such as
Bedrock's newspaper The Daily Slab; the Slate Rock and Gravel
Company (where Fred worked as a dino-crane operator); the Drive-In
movie (where "The Monster" is playing at the beginning of each
show); the Drive-in restaurant that serves Fred a giant serving of
barbecued ribs (that tips over Fred's car at the end of
each show); the local fraternity called the Royal Order of the Water
Buffaloes (where Fred and Barney are members); and the Rockapedic
Hospital (where Pebbles Flintstone was born on February 22, 10,000
B.C. at 8:00pm. – she weighed 6 pounds, 12 ounces).
Bedrock's Bronto Burger Drive In
TRIVIA NOTE: The FLINTSTONES series
inspired a theme park called Bedrock City. Located in the town of
Custer, South Dakota along West Highway 16 and Highway 385, this TV
inspired theme park is a concrete recreation of the prehistoric town
of Bedrock on the animated series THE FLINTSTONES/ABC/1960-66.
Founded in 1966, the site includes such attractions as a statue of
Dino the Dinosaur at the front entrance, Flintstone-style buildings
and live-costumed performers of Fred and Wilma Flintstone and their
friends Barney and Betty Rubble.
Visitors can chow-down as the
Bedrock Drive. Its menu features Bronto Burgers, Dino Dogs, and
Similar tourist attractions designed
after the Stone Age town of Bedrock can be found in the town of
Valle, Arizona along the road to the Grand Canyon; and in the Smokey
Mountain town of Sevierville, Tennessee.
