There's a thin line between TV icon and pop culture icon.... this is a perfect example of it.
I'll ditto that. However, Fred is my favorite of the two. Call me crazy but I never was a "Honeymooners" fan.

Fred Flintstone, because of the more lasting power of the show through the years

I think Ralph. Fred is a somewhat sanitized version of Ralph - he doesn't convey a sense of desperation as Ralph does.

I prefer Ralph Kramden. Jackie Gleason is one of my comedic idols and The Honeymooners is one of my favorite TV shows. However, if I mention "Ralph Kramden" to someone in their twenties or teens, chances are they're not going to know who I'm talking about. But they WILL know Fred Flintstone. If I say "Yabba Dabba Doo!" they know who I'm referencing. So I'm going with the man named Flintstone on this one.
