Who remembers watching this one? I recall that they made a large promotional effort for it, and admittedly I was fairly impressed when I did watch it when it aired, with several complex plotlines running across both the Space Age and Stone Age settings that compliment the sheer interest value of the concept (of the many telefilms Hanna-Barbera did with their stars during the 80s, only Yogi's First Christmas was better than this one in my opinion). I like that they also put in many of the shows' supporting characters; Mr. Slate was never as good during the Flintstones' original one as he is here (although considering it took H-B a while in the beginning to standardize his appearance and name, they can be forgiven a bit for that). Sure the conclusion with the Flintstones almost magically transported back to their own time since their car absorbed energy from Elroy's time machine (or as George more simply puts it, "Maybe the car jsut wanted to go home as badly as they do."), it doesn't detract. They should really put this out on DVD.

Did anyone else see it?

I remember this show very clearly. I hope it comes out on DVD, too.

Not at last check at least. If you have Boomerang on your local cable system check for it there, since I think all the Hanna-Barbera telefilms now cycle there since they were moved off the main Cartoon Network.
