Hotlips Hannigan: A Memorable Cartoon 10 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by: aventrello, January 17, 2007

By far one of the funniest and most memorable of the Flintstones. One reason is the inclusion of music with the show, which the writers have used several times later in other episodes. This episode features a jazzed up version of "When the Saints Go Marching In". I've read some reviews where it has been said that Alan Reed himself (Fred Flintstone) did the singing of the song.
Fred and Barney are able to escape the house for a night when Fred thinks that he has made Wilma and Betty disappear while doing a magic trick. The boys are able to take a stroll down memory lane and be musicians again for a night at a club that features Fred's old high school friend Hot Lips Hannigan. Little do they know that Wilma and Betty are sneaking behind them keeping a watchful eye in disguises.
One thing that struck me as funny about this episode and a later episode called "Girls Night Out" was that Fred actually has a good singing voice. In most episodes when Fred tries to sing he usually sounds like a broken record. But it is the inconsistencies that has made The Flintstones so memorable and it's what made this episode so memorable for me.

A Great Start to an Immortal Cartoon Series. 10 out of 5 stars

Like most Flilntstone fans, I didn't see this one first, being as when I first saw this series it was already in syndication. If I had been one of those first-time fans, I wonder what my reaction would have been.

What we have in this first episode is the silly one-liners from Fred and Barney's silliness that fans remember. Although the animation is a little crude (for more crude animation check out the early Beavis and Butthead) but it is still memorable. Betty does change her look slightly in the coming episodes and Barney's voice changes as time goes on. But we are greeted with the same Flintstone wit and nitwit that we have all come to love.

My favorite part of the episode is where Fred is trying to fly the flyer on his first try and right before he crashes Barney yells out, "You're too fat, Fred!!" . I also loved Fred and Barney's unique bowling style that doesn't stray much as the series progesses. We also see the first of many variations of the Flintstone car, which in this episode resembles a hollowed out log on wheels.

Truly this episode was the birthplace of Yabba-Dabba-Do. I don't think either Hanna or Barbera knew what a gem they had created here. But we the long-time fans know it. Truly a masterpiece.
