Prehistoric costume, prop and car from the live-action Flintstones movie...

In 1994 Hanna-Barbera's classic 60's cartoon and family-favourite, The Flintstones, made the leap to the big screen as a live-action movie starring John Goodman as the titular 'Fred Flintstone'.

Fred lives with his wife 'Wilma' and neighbours 'Barney and Betty Rubble', and their respective children, in the Stone-Age fantasy world of Bedrock, where cavemen and dinosaurs co-exist and prehistoric equivalents of cars are powered by the passengers feet.
