A Flintstone Christmas Collection DVD Review

Synopsis: Celebrate the solstice in Stone Age style with these two animated holiday classics, starring America's favorite pre-historic family. Your first course of holiday cheer from Fred and co. is 1977's A Flintstone Christmas, in which Fred and Barney must save Christmas when Santa sprains his ankle. There's one big problem, though - Fred promised Mr. Slate that he will play Santa at the Children's holiday party. Can Fred and Barney deliver all the toys and still make it back to the party in time? And your second course is 1993's Emmy® nominated A Flintstone Family Christmas, which gives viewers a glimpse into the later life of the Rubbles and the Flintstones. Awaiting the return of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm (now married with children of their own), Fred and Barney encounter a criminally inclined "caveless" youth. Fred and Wilma attempt to instill values in the boy, only to find themselves with a most unexpected Christmas gift.

Review: We love vintage animation here at the Legion and nobody did cartoons better back in the day than Hanna Barbera.  This new DVD release has two vintage Flintstones Xmas specials, one from 1977 and one from 1993.  Its funny how the animation is pretty similar, but the tone is so vastly different.  The special from 1977 is all about light-hearted fun, while the 1993 special is a little more preachy and socially conscious..a reflection of the times.   Either way, these both rock and what better way to spend Xmas than with the Flintstones?  Get this one immediately!
