The Treasury of the Government of Niue has launched a new collector’s coin which features characters from The Flintstones. The main character’s catch-phrase “yabba dabba doo” is instantly recognized and imitated by enthusiastic watchers over the last five decades!

First broadcast in the United States on the 30th September 1960, the Flintstones, promoted as a modern stone-age family, is an animated series set in pre-historic times and which was figuratively based on the 50’s classic TV series “the Honeymooners.” The main character Fred Flintstone is a “bronto-crane” operator at the Slate Rock and Gravel Company and the head of the Flintstone clan consisting of his wife Wilma, pet dinosaur “Dino” and from the end of the third season, their little girl Pebbles. Their next door neighbors Barney & Betty Rubble along with son Bamm-Bamm completed the ensemble which was to last six seasons and include 166 original episodes. The now classic series concluded its run on the 1st April 1966 and was followed with updated versions of the Flintstone & Rubble families with the “Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show” in 1971, “The Flintstone Comedy Hour” in 1972 and “Fred Flintstone and Friends” in 1977.
