Flintstones TV Remake from Creator of Family Guy

May 17, 2011 - Brandi Bowers

Ok, so I decided to blog today because I just found out something pretty cool. As many people know, one of my favorite cartoons is Family Guy. Well, the creator of Family Guy (& American Dad, & The Cleveland Show & more on Cartoon Network), Seth MacFarlane, is creating a new cartoon for FOX... an update of THE FLINTSTONES!

The announcement was made yesterday that the show will start production in the fall and air in 2013. The Flintstones is one of Seth's favorites and one of the first things he drew, so I'm sure he'll do a great job. And yes, Seth and I are on a first name basis.

According to Entertainment Weekly, he plans to keep a lot of things and characters similar to the classic cartoon, but add some updated things to keep up with now (the example was a prehistoric ipod). I'm also interested in seeing Seth's take on how the characters interact. If you're a fan of family guy, I probably don't have to elaborate. Basically, I'm wondering how someone so progressive will translate a cartoon that was created in 1959.

I have to admit, I'm really torn when it comes to remakes & updates. Can you do justice to the original? Has it been long enough inbetween shows or movies? In this case, I'm thinking & hoping yes to both. And this is really all I need, to be glued to the tv for another cartoon. LOL. I may need to break down and get DVR for all the tv shows I'd like to watch & blog.
