Want to celebrate Independence Day with a historically resonant and accurate look back at our
true (albeit six-toed) Founding Fathers? The Cartoon Network's Boomerang channel is airing all 166 episodes of
The Flintstones, kicking off with the pilot (then dubbed
The Flagstones), starting Wednesday, July 4, at 6 am/ET - and
sans commercial interruption (not even Fred and Barney shilling Winstons).
Among my many favorites? Season 4, Episode 20, the family camping excursion to Shangri-La-Dee-Da, alas at the same time the park is hosting some sort of multinational Scout jamboree.
