Flintstones, WWE
So "The Flintstones," the 1994 live-action movie adaptation of the animated cartoon starring John Goodman, Rick Moranis, Rosie O'Donnell, Rosie O'Donnell and Kyle MacLachlan hurt the modern stone age family's brand. Sure, you probably (maybe, possibly) saw it, so your eyes and ears can tell you what's self-evident. But apparently the brand was damaged far worse than you can possibly imagine (though Universal, who made the '94 film letting movie rights lapse to Warner Bros. in the intervening years is also a good indicator).

Yabba Dabba Don't"The Flintstones" is a genuine pop culture icon. Sure, it may have been a riff on "The Honeymooners," thankfully stripped of the overtones of domestic violence, but it was also a truly affectionate, witty look at suburban American life, set in a beautifully designed neanderthal world. It's not "The Cherry Orchard" or anything, but it's pretty good. And, thanks to being tied up in various legal issues, the show has mostly been left alone since the disastrous Spielberg-produced 1994 live-action version, and its even worse prequel "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas" six years later. Until now, that is.
