Yabba-dabba-do! It looks the modern stone age family is getting a new cartoon, courtesy of actress/director Elizabeth Banks and her Brownstone Productions. Variety reports that the new Flintstones is a “primetime animated adult comedy series,” which is based on an “original idea” featuring Flintstones characters. No network is currently attached.
It’ll be the first Flintstones cartoon since 2018, when Yabba-Dabba Dinosaurs debuted on the Boomerang subscription app. Back in 2011, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane was developing a Flintstones reboot, but the new show didn’t come to be.
The original Flintstones cartoon ran for six seasons on ABC, going for 150 episodes from 1960 to 1966, covering the often wacky trials and tribulations of the titular Flintstone family and their neighbors, the Rubbles. An animated film is currently in development as well.
