Dances

Frantic, The - Dance craze created by cave man Fred Flintstone on the animated sitcom THE FLINTSTONES/ABC/1960-66.

When Fred accidentally dropped a bowling ball on his foot while bowling, he "frantically" grabbed his injured foot and began to hop around the alley on his good foot, all the while yelling "Yabba Dabba Di, Yi, Yi, Yi."

Mistaking Fred's pain for a new dance step, an entrepreneur offered to pay Fred one hundred dollars if Fred performed his new dance step at the Bedrock A' Go-Go.

Just before Fred was about to demonstrate "The Frantic," he sat on a tack and ran screaming onto the dance floor where he fell flat on his face. This new accident was misinterpreted as a dance called "The Flop."

Later that same evening when Fred hit his head on a door, he ran around the room holding his head and screaming, and thus created "The Frenzy."

Fred's friend Barney Rubble commented "Every time he hurts himself, he makes a new dance. He'll make a fortune, if he lives."
