Why The Flintstones might be annoying:

    It was basically The Honeymooners as a cartoon with a lot of puns about rocks.
    Although the pet saber-tooth cat Baby Puss is featured in the closing credits of each episode, it rarely was part of any of the storylines.
    The show was initially sponsored by Winston cigarettes, with Fred singing the Winston jingle as part of the original end credits. (And you though Joe Camel was blatant tobacco marketing to kids!)
    The Flinstones later shilled for breakfast cereals, vitamins, Midas mufflers and GEICO.

Why The Flintstones might not be annoying:

    Guest stars on the show included Stony Curtis and Ann-Margrock.
    In 1963, Winston was replaced as a sponsor by the more benign Welch's Grape Juice.
    It was the first ABC series broadcast in color.
    It was the first prime-time cartoon to last more than two seasons (and until The Simpsons came along three decades later, the only one).
