Afternoon everyone. :) I'm home now, safely snuggled up with woolie socks and watching an episode of He-Man. If someone were to make book on whether or not I'm going to watch some more, I would not bet against it.
First off, I want to apologize for the lack of promised bonus material. I had some computer issues that I'd hoped would be resolved on Thursday, but it just didn't happen. To help make amends, I've included a bunch of stuff for you to download at the end of the post, as well as a few parodies and tidbits to make The Flintstones episodes more fun. More bonus material! Whee! Now, on to the podcast. If you need help downloading from MegaUpload, please follow this tutorial made by the good DJs over at The Deuce Project.
The Saturday Morning Cartoon Show - 04/26/08 - The Flintstones
The two episodes in today's show, "The Flintstone Flyer" and "Hot Lips Hannigan," are the first two aired (though not produced). They're a really nice change of pace if you're accustomed to the later, more fast and loose episodes in the series. They also have the original beginning and end theme music, which several people I've talked to prefer to the better known "Meet The Flintstones." Here are some supplemental vids to amuse you once you've had your fill of pure Flintstones.

The B-52's - Meet The Flintstones
Yeah, I cried a little bit too. Oh Mr. Goodman...but hey, does Kate Pierson ever not look fantastic?
Here is your bonus material. :) I adore very old cartoons, especially ones that were excerpted for Pee-Wee's Playhouse. Download and enjoy this classic Ub Iwerks fare. I also thought some of you might dig having the original themes to The Flintstones, so I put those up too.
