Question The Flinstones characters' eyeballs

Why were Fred and Betty the only ones with normal-looking eyeballs?

I thought it was cool they all had unique eyes. It gave the characters more personality.

I think Barney's eyes became more like Wilma's in later seasons though.

I know!! Isn't it cool?? I love the Flintstones! And it's really neat how Pebbles has Wilma's hair color and Fred's eyes! And Barney with just little circles as eyes, and than I guess the later Seasons they were black dots like Wilma's ! How about when Fred wrote that poem to Wilma, with that line "Eyes as black as frying pans" !!That was hilarius!

All of the characters have pretty normal looking eyes aside from Barney, Wilma, and some background and side characters.

I used to think perhaps Fred and Betty were cousins and maybe Wilma and Barney were cousins.

I think Barney developed cataracts, in light of the change Bonniegirl mentioned. Before that, we might've said he was a distant relative of Little Orphan Annie.

Yeah, you would think people with 6 toes and 8 fingers would have normal eyes.
