The Answers(Since no one was BRAVE ENOUGH to accept the challenge...)
3. Welch's Grape Juice.
4.Hal Smith (Otis on Andy Griffith); Howard McNear (Floyd the Barber on Andy Griffith)
5.Both shows have second-bananas named "Barney" (as does "All In The Family" and '' The Simpsons")
7. They wanted to cap Dino's teeth and "bob" his tail! (ouch!!)
8. Daws Butler did Barney's voice during the first five episodes of the 1961-62 season while Mel Blanc was recuperating from a near-fatal car wreck. (when Mel WAS able to do voices again, he did them from his bed---he was in a full-body cast---with the rest of the cast and crew around him.) (For those of you who don't realize it, Daws Butler did Fred and Barney's voices in the lost "Flagstones" test reel in1959!)
9. Frank Welker and Billy West (also, I think, Corey Burton, but I can't be sure of this...)
10. True. Alan Reed appearantly couldn't hold a note, so Henry Corden did all of Fred's singing (that's right...the much-maligned Mr. Corden is in reality the "Golden Smog"!)
11. Over-Eater's Anonymous, and their rallying cry was "GOINK-GOINK-GOINK!"
12.Grandma Dynamite. Mrs. Slaghoople, Wilma's mother!!
13.He statrts not one, not two, but THREE dance crazes all in the space of one week: the "Flintstone Frantic", created when Barney drops a bowling ball on Fred's foot; the "Flintstone Flop" created when a nervous Fred sits on a pin just before his debut on the "Shinrock" show, and the "Flintstone Frenzy", created when Barney pushes poor Fred over the edge!! ("Yabba-dabba-yi-eyi-yi-yi!!" is the "song" that accompanies the "Flintstone Frantic, in reality Poor Fred yelping in pain..)
14.Baa-aad-Luck Schleprock, the local jinx. (based somewhat loosely on Joe Btsfpk from Al Capp's "Li'l Abner" comic strip.)
15.False. The shmoo (or "schmoo", depending on who's writing it) also was an Al Capp creation, first appearing in "Li'l Abner" in 1948 before recieving his own comic-book series in 1954. Prior to his being immersed into the "Flintstones" mythos, he had his own show, one of a long line of "Scooby-Doo" clones...
17."The Beauty Contest" (1 December 1961), in which Fred and Barney are judges in the "Miss Water Buffalo" contest; and "Here's Snow In Your Eyes" (19 October 1962), in which Wilma and Betty follow the boys up to a ski-lodge in disguises and are mistaken for beauty-contestants, and have to pose for photographs in the ice in skimpy bikinis!!
18.While "The Flintstone Flyer" (30 September 1960) was indeed shown first, it was the second episode made. The series' pilot was "The Swimming Pool"(14 October 1960), which was actually the THIRD episode aired.
19.Frank Nelson was featured most prominently on "The Jack Benny Show", where he possibly originated the wise-guy salesman character (Mel Blanc was also featured on this show.) He was also featured on "I Love Lucy" during the 1956-57 season as the Ricardo's Conneticut Next-door nieghbor Frank Ramsey.
20. "Peter Gunn", a jazz-inspired pi show popular during the late 1950s.
21. "The Thing", from the "Fantastic Four" series.
So...did you get any of these answers right?
