Apparently, the Family Guy creator has wanted to reboot The Flintstones for quite some time. Be that as it may, does anyone who has a fondness for Fred, Wilma, Barney, et al. really think that Seth McFarlane isn’t just going to turn the legendary animated show (itself a parody of The Honeymooners) into non-sequitur pop culture jokes in the stone age?
Now that the legal hassles have been untangled, McFarlane will be rebooting the series for Fox TV, and to possibly make into a movie as well. The new show will air in 2013.
It can’t be any worse than the John Goodman/Rick Moranis movies can it? My guess is McFarlane has accepted the challenge to do just that.
