It was only a matter of time until the reboot and prequel phase hit cartoons. I’m honestly shocked we haven’t gotten a Simpsons Babies yet, with baby Homer and baby Moe and baby Barney. But I digress.
We may not have that, but this fall, we will have a show about the Flintstones babies, namely Fred and Wilma’s Pebbles and Barney and Betty’s Bamm-Bamm. Together with their pet Dino, they’ll be having all sorts of prehistoric adventures in the nonsensical history of the Flintstones universe. Do kids these days even know who the Flintstones are, or that it was based on The Honeymooners? (They definitely haven’t heard of The Honeymooners!) Are Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm even memorable characters? Do children realize humans and dinosaurs never co-existed? Who cares!
The official synopsis for Yabba-Dabba Dinosaurs:
Best friends Pebbles Flintstone and Bamm-Bamm Rubble are two kids from the town of Bedrock, a modern Stone Age civilization where dinosaurs are domesticated and helpful, including their lovable and loyal pet Dino. But the real “yabba dabba doo” times are had in the open wilderness outside of Bedrock city limits in a place they call The Crags! There, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm meet a never-ending roster of prehistoric pals and explore environments that are as wild, colorful, and surprising as the dinosaurs who live there.
Yabba-Dana Dinosaurs is, hitting HBO Max on September 30:
