The Flintstones was about a working class Stone Age man's life with his family and his next-door neighbor and best friend. The gameplay is preceded by a short movie which sets the stage. A man from the 30th century named Dr. Butler kidnaps Dino and Hoppy, the two pets that belong to Fred Flintstone, Barney Rubble, and their respective families. Fred's alien friend, Gazoo, lost parts of his time machine due to the evil man from the future. Gazoo is only visible to Fred and not to anyone else. With each stage Fred completes, he earns back another piece of the time machine, and Gazoo welds together the pieces progressively. Throughout the stages, Fred runs into Wilma, Barney, Betty, as well as George Jetson in the future stage. Fred has to defeat a boss at each stage. At the end of the map, he gets the last piece and travels to the future, where he has to defeat the man from the 30th century. The ending shows Fred and his friends being re-united and happy back in Bedrock with their pets.
