"Adobe Dick" is the fourteenth episode of the fifth season of The Flintstones. It first aired on December 17, 1964.

SynopsisEdit

A Water Buffalo fishing trip turns exciting when Fred and Barney are swallowed by the feared whalesaurus Adobe Dick.

PlotEdit

Fred and Barney embark upon the Water Buffalo Lodge fishing expedition aboard the H.M.S. Bountystone, commanded, of course, by tyrannical Captain Blah. There is a $10 prize from the Water Buffalo Lodge treasury for the largest catch, which Fred intends to achieve.

After three hours of casting their fishing lines with not a single hook nibble from the creatures of the deep, Fred and Barney opt to part company from their brother Water Buffalos. While Blah is preoccupied romancing a mermaid, Flintstone and Rubble borrow a H.M.S. Bountystone lifeboat and row it to a secluded spot in hope of better luck in their fishing enterprise. They encounter what they believe is an island and park their boat there. But their chosen place for a quick lunch and further fly casting is alive. It is the back of the legendary whaleasaurus, Adobe Dick!

Irked by the two cavemen positioned on his hulky body, Dick goes into attack mode and swallows alive Fred and Barney, who, while rowing in panic their boat away from the fearsome Adobe's prior location, unwittingly choose to hide in a cave that is really the fully opened maw of the monster of the deep! In Dick's stomach, Fred and Barney read a message on one of Dick's molars from a long-dead fellow victim of the notorious whaleasaurus, a certain Jonah, and conclude correctly that they are Adobe Dick fodder. They manage to escape the whaleasaurus's stomach and mouth by tickling Dick's tonsil. Dick pursues them as they row their boat in haste toward bona fide land, becomes tired, and slumbers on a beach.

With his Polarock camera, Barney attempts to photograph Fred standing beside the huge beast of the sea, but while stepping backward to frame his snapshot, Barney falls off of the top of a cliff. His cry in the fall awakens Dick, who darts into the water and into the horizon, never to be seen again. Fred is heartbroken to have lost yet another opportunity for fame.

Happily, Barney discovers after he and Fred return to their homes that he did in fact photograph Fred with Adobe before his tumble from the cliff. Fred's rapt anticipation that his ostensibly incredible "fish story" will be verified to Wilma and to the world is dashed as Barney is shocked to discover that his thumb obstructed the camera frame!
