Cities & Towns

Bedrock - Prehistoric town featured on the animated cartoon series THE FLINTSTONES/ABC/1960-66. Bedrock (pop. 2500) is the home of Fred Flintstone, a quarry worker and his wife, Wilma. They live at 201 Cobblestone Way in Cobblestone County, Bedrock 70777. Also living with the Flintstone's are their two pets, a purple Snorkasaurus named Dino and a saber-toothed cat named "Baby Puss." The Flintstones's best friends and next-door neighbors are Barney and Betty Rubble.

Fred and Wilma later had a bouncing baby red-haired girl named Pebbles [her first words were "Abba Gabba Goo"]. Barney and Betty then adopted a powerful towheaded baby boy left on their doorsteps. They called him Bam Bam.

Years later, Pebbles and Bam married each other. They had twins: Roxy, a towhead who inherited her father's super strength and Chip, a redheaded boy. The Flintstone's other next-door neighbors were the Gruesomes: Wierdly, Creepella and their son Goblin.

Theme Song Lyrics

Flintstones... Meet the Flintstones,
They're a modern stone age family.
From the town of Bedrock,
They're a page right out of history.

Let's ride with the family down the street.
Thru the courtesy of Fred's two feet.

When you're with the Flintstones,
have a yabba dabba doo time,
a dabba doo time,
we'll have a gay old time.


Like most town's, Bedrock had a number of businesses such as Bedrock's newspaper The Daily Slab; the Slate Rock and Gravel Company (where Fred worked as a dino-crane operator); the Drive-In movie (where "The Monster" is playing at the beginning of each show); the Drive-in restaurant that serves Fred a giant serving of barbecued ribs (that tips over Fred's car at the end of each show); the local fraternity called the Royal Order of the Water Buffaloes (where Fred and Barney are members); and the Rockapedic Hospital (where Pebbles Flintstone was born on February 22, 10,000 B.C. at 8:00pm. – she weighed 6 pounds, 12 ounces).

TRIVIA NOTE: The FLINTSTONES series inspired a theme park called Bedrock City. Located in the town of Custer, South Dakota along West Highway 16 and Highway 385, this TV inspired theme park is a concrete recreation of the prehistoric town of Bedrock on the animated series THE FLINTSTONES/ABC/1960-66.

Founded in 1966, the site includes such attractions as a statue of Dino the Dinosaur at the front entrance, Flintstone-style buildings and live-costumed performers of Fred and Wilma Flintstone and their friends Barney and Betty Rubble.

Visitors can chow-down as the Bedrock Drive. Its menu features Bronto Burgers, Dino Dogs, and Chick-a-Saurus sandwiches.

Similar tourist attractions designed after the Stone Age town of Bedrock can be found in the town of Valle, Arizona along the road to the Grand Canyon; and in the Smokey Mountain town of Sevierville, Tennessee. See also - ADDRESSES - "F" (The Flintstones)
