I always wondered what Fred Flintstone really looked like.

Reminds me of the first time I saw a Joe McDoakes short...

I've actually seen every one of them except Mel Blanc on Petticoat Junction. Jean Vanderpyl appeared in several episodes of Petticoat Junction but they all aired around the time of Bea's death, as did Alan Reed's. Neither of them worked with her on the show. As I recall (probably badly) Jean's hair was as red as Wilma's.

Both women died of lung cancer. Both men died of heart disease.

I met Jean Vanderpyl at the time of the release of the live-action FLINTSTONES movie - amazing lady, with a fantastic grin!
