Product Description

Amazon.ca

Baste the turkeysaurus and head over to Bloomingshale's for some last-minute shopping; it's Christmastime in Bedrock. Fred and the gang have more than the usual festive preparations up their prehistoric sleeves, however, as they are staging a production of "The Christmas Carol" with Fred in the role of Scrooge. Things take a frightening turn when--in the classic tradition of method acting--Fred takes his role to heart and becomes a bit humbuggish himself. So preoccupied with his role is he, that he forgets to pick up Pebbles from day care, leaves Christmas shopping off his list of things to do, and belittles the parts played by his friends (such as Barney as Bob Cratchit). When the Bedrock bug (a flu virus) begins to fell cast members, it provides the ideal opportunity for costume maker and stage manager Wilma to take on understudy duties and scare some sense into her self-absorbed husband. And just in time for Christmas Eve. God bless them, every one. (Ages 2 and older.) --Kimberly Heinrichs

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth Watching Nov. 10 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Well, I can't say this is the best version I have seen, and I am not sure Charles Dickens would be overly impressed with this. And, I would sooner use the "Muppets' Christmas Carol" to help someone understand the story. But aside from that, the movie is quite clever. Despite the unorthodox acting of the Flintstones, the Rubbles, Mr. Slate, Dino, and others, the story is told fairly well. What I found quite entertaining was that this is the first version of "A Christmas Carol" I have seen where backstage squabbles make up a fair portion of the movie. And in all honesty, there is something very funny about seeing the actors perform in at least partial harmony on stage, and then seeing them argue backstage between the scenes. And the part of the story which involves Fred getting too much into character is actually quite realistic. While this is not the best version of Dickens' classic, and while I would not use it to teach someone the story, it is a delightful movie to watch after you have a healthy understanding of the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fred Flintstone as Scrooge "Buh Humbug" Dec 10 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Now, I have seen Muppets playing characters of A Chrismas Carol. And now this. As A Flintstone Christmas Carol opens, Fred Flintstone has been practing his part for the play. And he is going to be Scrooge. But when somebody gets the Bedrock Bug a diease that only lasts 24 hours, his wife takes his/her place. And that she aslo replaces two women in the play when they come up with the Bedrock Bug. Wilma who works behind the senes as to go to the threater early, needs her hushband to pick up Pebbles Flintstone at day care. But he doesn't listen. And instead remembers after work that he doesn't have presents to put under the tree for Wilma and Pebbles. So he goes shooping at the last minute. But shows up at the threater without Pebbles. And his wife is mad with him. But Barney picked Pebbles up at day care when he comes for Bamn Bamn. Watch this tape!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Flintstones Christmas Carol Dec 9 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I like the Flintstones and I think this is a good animated version of a Christmas Carol and wouldn't mind having it in my Video tape collection but I would much rather have it on DVD and I hope they will put it on DVD. A stage play of A Christmas Carol is being put on in Bedrock and Fred who is playing Scrooge makes everyone crazy especially Wilma with his own Scrooge like behaviour and adding to the trouble is a virus called the Bedrock bug which fells most of the cast and has Wilma (with help from Betty and Barney) who is in charge of the play working very hard to keep the play up and going.

As a child I loved the Flintstones. As an adult I found this adaptation to be a stroll down memory lane. I bought this video for the kids, but found myself liking as much if not more than they did. It's corny, but who cares - it's the Flintstones at their corny best. The story is a play within a play. Fred is his usual grumpy, lovable self - he's perfect as Scooge. Wilma, Barney and the Gang serve up a tasty Christmas treat. A must for everyone who loves the Flintstones and the story of Scooge!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute! Oct. 19 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I've been a fan of The Flintstones ever since I was a child, it was one of the few cartoons I ever liked. I liked A Flintstones Christmas Carol, it was really cute, though it it was a little gross to see the cartoon characters while coming down with the Bedrock Bug (stomach virus) turn green and hold their mouths while trying not to throw up til they got to the bathroom, but other then that it was enjoyable and a good addition for a Christmas video collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas Carol -Flintstones Style! Aug. 22 2000
Format:VHS Tape
When I was a child I loved the Flintstones. So, I bought this video thinking that the kids might like the Flintstones too! I was surprised - I loved the video - even more than they did.! Fred is his usual grumpy, wonderful self - and a natural to play Scrooge. Barney, Wilma and the rest of the gang round out the cast. Thestory within a story is a clever way to stage a Christmas Carol. Great fun for the whole family (especially the Baby Boomers!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Animated Remake of Dicken's Classic! July 16 2002
Format:VHS Tape
"A Flintstone's Christmas Carol" is a great remake of the classic novel "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens, including that it is Christmas in Bedrock, Fred Flintstone who plays Ebonezer Scrooge, Wilma makes his clothes, Barney Rubble is his stooge, Bamm-Bamm is Tiny Tim, in Bedrock's X-mas play, not so far, and I give this remake of Dicken's classic 5 stars.
