A Flintstone Christmas

A Flintstone Christmas was a 60-minute Christmas television special featuring The Flintstones. It was produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and aired on NBC on December 7, 1977.


On Christmas Eve, Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble save Christmas for children all over the world by taking Santa Claus' place when he sprains his ankle delivering presents at the Flintstones' house. Santa teaches them all they need to know and they do a great job, but Fred is late for a Christmas party hosted by his boss Mr. Slate and he could lose his job.

Continuity Goofs

  • In this show, Fred finds it hard to believe that Santa is real until he sees the reindeer on the roof. In the Flintstones episode "The Christmas Flintstone", Fred believed in Santa after doing his duties for the night. He went to the North Pole and actually met Santa.
  • Santa wears boots, as he also did in "The Christmas Flintstone", yet no one else in Bedrock has ever worn footwear
