....in the "GEICO" commercial for THE FLINTSTONES? They say that Fred works at the "SLATE-ROCK GRAVEL COMPANY", but it's the "SLATE ROCK AND GRAVEL COMPANY".
I like how they call his car "the Flint-Mobile". LOL

In the first season episode, "The Snorkasaurus Hunt," it was called the
Rockhead & Quarry Cave Construction Company.

That's a little LITTLE thing!
But For the record Fred's place of employment has had like over 10 names through the series.

In one episode, the masquerade party episode where Fred and Barney wear a tandem dinosaur costume, Fred is talking to his boss, called "Mr. Rockhead" (but it sure looked like Mr. Slate!), not realizing that it is his boss . . . wearing a bird head. He refers to his boss as "the president of the Bedrock Construction Company" and the "vice president of the Bedrock Knucklehead Club!" :lol: Maybe Mr. Rockhead fired him and Fred got a job at the Slate Rock and Gravel Company.
Mr. Slate was originally depicted as short with tufts of derk hair and a moustache before he was drawn to look more like Phil Silvers.
