For many years, from 1966-1990 to be exact, generations of rerun wathing kids who never saw "The Flintstones in its original ABC run from
1960-1966 would have seen the credits for the Flintstone episodes from 1960 to 1962 as:
PRODUCED AND DIRECTED BY
JOE BARBERA BILL HANNA
Written by Story Director
WARREN FOSTER ART DAVIS
Starring the voices of
ALAN REED as FRED FLINTSTONE
JEAN VANDERPYL as WILMA FLINTSTONE
(next scene; credits fade)
MEL BLANC as BARNEY RUBBLE
BEA BENADERET (sic) as BETTY RUBBLE
HAL SMITH & JOHN STEPHENSON
and on and on
(C)MCMLXII BY HANNA-BARBERA PRODUCTION INC.
then the Screen Gems credit at the end of then after the credits.
For many what many children growing up dkidn't realize was that in its original prime time showing
[the audlt one] that NO Rubbles voice creedits appeared, that underneath the main credits just incidental cedits or no credits involved at all!
The now taboo ciggie ads, lack of credits, and such prompeted Screen Gems/Columbia Pictures TV in September 1966 to format the earlier ones [whose successors of course, beginning with the last
:original Oriental font" logo SG/CPTV had been using at the on "Gidget","I Dream of Jenanie etc." with Howie MacNear, Don Messick and opthers then the
new lettering to have the original endings] so that the pre-Pebbles episodes WOULD HAVE the same "gang" credits for each episode.,[BTW the credits used seem to be form one of the Water Buffalo/the boys sneak
out from Betty and Wilma ones]
By the time of Unviersal/Spielberg/Brian Grazer/HB's 1994 runaway block buster on the Stones, someone named T.S>Elliott came out with the FIRST EVER Flintstone
credits book, and as late as December 1994 it was aviable., That is where I saw who was around to do voices that never appeared aafter 1962 on the show, suchas Frank Nelson, Nancy Wible and some other sused later on other HB shows,
and regular like D.essick. The late Earl Kress [1951-2011] was very generous in putting some stock credits showed some of the voices and writers.
