Strange Stuff Dept.

Here is one of the strangest Flintstones newspaper comic strips I have seen. This 1961 episode had the Rubbles and the Flintstones celebrating Christmas before Christ.
Of course, we all get a dose of watered down Christology.
I just thought you might get a kick to see how Hanna-Barbara handled it.

  5. I guess so, Andy. I mean, he sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you are awake, he knows if you've been bad or good...so we ought not be surprised to learn that prophecy is included among his other credentials.


    Ummm. btw, Don't try to sing the words of the above paragraph to the tune of Santa Claus is Coming to Town. They just won't work.
