My favorite TV cartoon series, hands down was “The Flintstones.”
A second, but not real close second was…
Before we get into the main blog, I must tell you it’s kind of like but not exactly like…
This episode of “The Flintstones” entitled, “Reel Trouble,” where Wilma is aghast to discover that Fred has acquired a home-movie camera with which Fred plans to capture excessive film footage of Pebbles to show to invited audiences.
Because I’m such a fan of the series I’ve never forgotten a single episode, including this one.
Here’s the deal.
Fred becomes an obsessive-compulsive home-movie-maker. His subject: Pebbles. Pebbles is an adorable baby, but c’mon.
It gets out of hand when Fred has the audacity to bring a feature-film-length home-movie, ‘A Day in the Life of Pebbles Flintstone’, to the Water Buffalo Lodge that was expecting what amounted to a stag film.
The Water Buffalo brethren have angrily vacated the Lodge, all except for a sleeping Barney, by the time that the movie finishes and Fred exits the projection room to receive his wrongly anticipated accolades. The Poobah’s note to Fred: “Dear Former Lodge Member, We’ll get you for this!”
I’m positive we’re not at all totally similar to that cartoon with this blog and you will love what comes next. But, hey, it was a nice, hell, great intro.
Over on my wife’s blog, the blog version of a home movie starring US!
