The Flintstones Was Originally Called ‘Flagstones’

Text Version:
The Flintstones pilot episode came out in 1959, as a 90 second clip to draw advertisers to the show. At the time though,
it was called “The Flagstones.” It was intended to be a show for adults, not kids. In fact, the first two full seasons of
the show were sponsored by Winstons, a cigarette company.
