Flintstones
Hanna Barbara

Warner Bros. just made a huge announcement this week on the reboot of The Flintstone franchise, which was the first made for television cartoon series to play in prime time. Hanna-Barbara debuted the show in 1960 on ABC. The animators were the first to produce cartoons made for the small screen, including Ruff n Ready, Huckleberry Hound, Yogi Bear and Quick Draw McGraw.

The prime time situation comedy set in stone age bedrock ran six seasons and paved the way for The Jetsons, Top Cat and Johnny Quest. Flintstones held the record for longest running prime time animated series until surpassed by The Simpsons.

Chris Henchy -- who is partners with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay in Gary Sanchez Productions and who also co-wrote the script for Warners' Ferrell-Zack Galifianakis comedy The Campaign -- is penning the script , according to Hollywood Reporter.

The animated announcement follows a live-action 1996 version which starred John Goodman, Elizabeth Perkins, Rick Moranis, and Rosie O’Donnell. Elizabeth Taylor played Flintstone’s mother-in-law. Steven Spielberg produced the film which had 32 credited writers.

FROZEN STILL ON TOP IN JAPAN

The two sisters have had their way with Japanese audiences for the last two months. Hollywood Reporter called the now Top 10 flick as "untouchable" at the Japanese boxoffice.

GODZILLA

Filmland will not turn re-boot nostalgic until May 15 dawns the new "Godzilla" film. Sea monsters have long been favorites, including some famous "B" productions like "Gorgo" and "Giant Behemoth," and "Creature from the Black Lagoon." Japan's "Godzilla" spawned endless sequels destroying Toyko and other Japanese cities. He also took on Mothra, Ghidrah, Smog Monster, Mechagodzilla, King Kong, and oddly dressed men from outer space. You name it, Godzilla battled it.

In fact, WSAZ's "Steamboat Bill" , a 50s locally produced children's show, featured Merlin, a sea monster on the Kanawha and Ohio Rivers. Jule Huffman, later Mr. Cartoon, voiced Merlin.

FOR THIS WEEK, "Neighbors" plants a couple and their newborn on fraternity row. It has hilarious potential.
