'Flintstones' Original Pilot Clip Surfaces (VIDEO)

Finally, the chance to see the Fred and Wilma that could have been.

Although it has apparently been on YouTube since 2008, a clip from the original "Flintstones" pilot has been making the rounds lately. In the original pilot of the Hanna-Barbera prime time animated series, the Flintstones were known as the Flagstones, and the voices and production designs of some of the characters changed slightly. (Some have speculated that the name was changed so that audiences wouldn't confuse the Modern Stone Age Family with the Flagstons of the comic strip "Hi & Lois.")

Cartoon impresario Seth MacFarlane is currently developing a rebooted version of "The Flintstones" to air on Fox in 2013.
