==Background==
Betty can be considered the least developed character in the show, as she is rarely seen not following the lead of either Barney or Wilma, the latter of whom she often seems merely an echo of, generally. In spite of this, Betty is shown to have a distinctly emotional marriage with Barney, which more often included pet names and a more obvious affection, as opposed to the more dynamic and energetic interaction between Fred and Wilma. The occasions when Betty leads the action are extremely scarce: one episode centers around her working undercover as a gentle old lady to earn money for a present for Barney, and on another occasion the plot for her and Wilma was led by her suspicions of Barney being involved with another woman (which turns out to be Fred in a disguise contrived in order to attend a ball game free of charge). This lack of protagonism (almost as background-set as supporting characters such as Pebbles, Bamm-Bamm or Dino, except for her more continuous presence) makes Betty less of a protagonist as is implied by the general concept of the show. In addition to her attractiveness and beauty, Betty can also be quite emotional. She starts getting angry when Barney is not behaving, she starts crying when something goes wrong, one example is after making a phone call about being sent to the Fireman's Ball. But mostly, she is a happy women, and often talks to Wilma.

==Biography==
+
Betty can be considered the least developed character in the show, as she is rarely seen not following the lead of either Barney or Wilma, the latter of whom she often seems merely an echo of, generally. In spite of this, Betty is shown to have a distinctly emotional marriage with Barney, which more often included pet names and a more obvious affection, as opposed to the more dynamic and energetic interaction between Fred and Wilma.
While the mid-1980s spin-off series ''The Flintstone Kids'' depicts Betty as a child, the series seems to be mostly apocryphal, owing to its presenting Betty as a childhood friend of Fred and Barney (the original series asserts that they first met as young adults) and that the four enjoy watching ''[[wikipedia:Captain Caveman|Captain Caveman]]'' (''[[The Flintstone Comedy Show]]'' asserts that adult Betty is ignorant of Cavey's superhero identity when working with him at the ''Daily Granite'' newspaper). Still, the series' assertions that Betty was a childhood friend of Wilma and that her parents ran a convenience store may be considered canon. As young adults, Betty and Wilma were employed as cigarette girls/waitresses at a resort. There, they first met, and fell in love, with their future husbands, Fred and Barney. Eventually, Betty and Barney were married, presumably not long after Fred and Wilma. Betty became a homemaker, keeping house with such prehistoric aids as a baby mammoth vacuum cleaner, pelican washing machine, and so forth. Betty, much like Wilma, also enjoys volunteering for various charitable/women's organizations in Bedrock, shopping, and (occasionally) getting to meet the celebrities of their world, including "[[wikipedia:Tony Curtis|Tony Curtis]]", "[[wikipedia:Cary Grant|Cary Grant]]", and "[[wikipedia:Ann-Margret|Ann-Margret]]". Betty at one time also has a job working for an 'old lady' who turns out to be a young lady in disguise and who was using Betty to pass phony money; this was the only episode centered principally around Betty. Around the fourth season of the original series, Betty and Barney find an abandoned infant on their doorstep, by the name of "Bamm-Bamm." After a court battle in which they defeat noted prehistoric lawyer "Perry Mason", the couple are allowed to adopt Bamm-Bamm. The Rubbles never had children of their own. When Bamm-Bamm is a teenager, Betty gains employment as a reporter for one of Bedrock's newspapers (or, more accurately, news-slabs), the ''Daily Granite'' (presumably a parody of the ''Daily Planet'' of Superman fame), under the editorial guidance of Lou Granite (presumably a parody of [[wikipedia:Lou Grant|Lou Grant]] of the contemporaneous eponymous series, and formerly of [[wikipedia:The Mary Tyler Moore Show|The Mary Tyler Moore Show]]). While employed there, she shares various adventures with prehistoric superhero [[wikipedia:Captain_Caveman_and_the_Teen_Angels#Captain|Captain Caveman]], who (in a secret identity) also works for the newspaper. Later still, after Bamm-Bamm grows up and leaves home, Betty starts a successful catering business with her neighbor and friend Wilma, before becoming a grandmother to Bamm-Bamm's twin children, Chip and Roxy.
 
   
==Portrayal==
+
This lack of protagonism (almost as background-set as supporting characters such as [[Pebbles Flintstone|Pebbles]], [[Bamm-Bamm Rubble|Bamm-Bamm]], or [[Dino]], except for her more continuous presence) makes Betty less of a protagonist as is implied by the general concept of the show. In addition to her attractiveness and beauty, Betty can also be quite emotional. She sometimes gets angry and frustrated when Barney is not behaving and she feels sad sometimes and starts crying when something goes wrong, one example is after making a phone call about being sent to the Fireman's Ball.
[[June Foray]] voiced Betty in the original pilot titled ''The Flagstones''. [[Bea Benaderet]] voiced Betty in the first to the fourth seasons of ''[[The Flintstones (1960 TV series)|The Flintstones]]'' before taking leave to pursue other projects. [[Gerry Johnson]] took over the role for the fifth and sixth seasons before taking leave shortly afterword. [[Gay Autterson]], [[Julie McWhirter]], [[Betty Jean Ward]], and [[Grey DeLisle]] have since all performed the role in later ''Flintstones'' media. In [[The Flintstones (film)|the 1994 film]], Betty was portrayed by [[Rosie O'Donnell]],<sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-0">[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betty_Rubble#cite_note-0 [1]]</sup><sup class="reference" id="cite_ref-1">[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betty_Rubble#cite_note-1 [2]]</sup> a casting decision somewhat controversial with fans as the plus-sized O'Donnell did not match Betty's slender figure from the animated series; O'Donnell reportedly won the role because she captured the high pitch laugh at her audition. [[Jane Krakowski]]'s version of the character in the [[The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas|second movie]] was generally received better, though was largely overlooked owing to the film's poor overall reception.

Revision as of 09:25, February 19, 2020

Elizabeth Jean "Betty" Rubble (née McBricker/O'Shale) is the beautiful and very attractive wife of Barney Rubble, the adoptive mother of Bamm-Bamm Rubble, the grandmother of Chip and Roxy and a fictional character of the original series, The Flintstones and the rest of the franchise.

Background

Personality

Betty's personality was based on that of Trixie Norton, wife of Ed Norton on the 1950s television series The Honeymooners; each of the four of the series' principal adult characters is an analogue of a Honeymooners character. Much like Trixie spent a lot of her time socializing with Alice Kramden, Betty mostly spends a lot of her time socializing with Wilma, and the two will often end up working together to bail their husbands out of whatever scheme of Fred's has landed them in trouble.

Betty can be considered the least developed character in the show, as she is rarely seen not following the lead of either Barney or Wilma, the latter of whom she often seems merely an echo of, generally. In spite of this, Betty is shown to have a distinctly emotional marriage with Barney, which more often included pet names and a more obvious affection, as opposed to the more dynamic and energetic interaction between Fred and Wilma.

This lack of protagonism (almost as background-set as supporting characters such as Pebbles, Bamm-Bamm, or Dino, except for her more continuous presence) makes Betty less of a protagonist as is implied by the general concept of the show. In addition to her attractiveness and beauty, Betty can also be quite emotional. She sometimes gets angry and frustrated when Barney is not behaving and she feels sad sometimes and starts crying when something goes wrong, one example is after making a phone call about being sent to the Fireman's Ball.

Physical Appearance

Betty is a beautiful, slim and slender young woman with fair skin and black hair in a bob and she's considerably taller than her husband, Barney. She wears a blue loincloth/tube dress with black straps that tie around the back of her neck, a decorative stone sewn onto the front of the chest and a jagged bottom. She also wears a trademark blue ribbon in her hair.

Occupations and Interests

The occasions when Betty leads the action are extremely scarce: one episode centers around her working undercover as a gentle old lady who uses her to pass "counterfeit" money to buy a present for Barney, and on another occasion the plot for her and Wilma was led by her suspicions of Barney being involved with another woman (which turns out to be Fred in a disguise contrived in order to attend a ball game free of charge).

Betty, much like Wilma, also enjoys volunteering for various charitable/women's organizations in Bedrock, shopping, and (occasionally) getting to meet the celebrities of their world, including Stony Curtis, Cary Granite, and Ann-Margrock.

When Bamm-Bamm was a teenager, Betty gained employment as a reporter for one of Bedrock's newspapers (or, more accurately, news-slabs), the Daily Granite (presumably a parody of the Daily Planet of Superman fame), under the editorial guidance of Lou Granite. While employed there, she shared various adventures with prehistoric superhero Captain Caveman, who (in a secret identity) also works for the newspaper.

Later still, after Bamm-Bamm grew up and left home in I Yabba-Dabba Do! and Hollyrock-a-Bye Baby, Betty started a successful catering business, "Bone-Appetite" with her partner Wilma.

Relationships

Family

In the 1980's spin-off series, The Flintstone Kids, Betty is a friend of Fred, Barney and Wilma since their childhood. As a child, she lived with her parents, Brad and Jean who ran a convenience store and her brother Brick and sister Sissy. Later, she and Barney were married, presumably not long after Fred and Wilma.

Around the fourth season of the original series, Betty and Barney found an abandoned infant on their doorstep, by the name of "Bamm-Bamm." After a court battle in which they defeated noted lawyer "Perry Masonry", the couple were allowed to adopt Bamm-Bamm legally and permanently. The Rubbles never had children of their own.

Later in Hollyrock-a-Bye Baby and A Flintstone Family Christmas, she became a grandmother to Bamm-Bamm's twin children, Chip and Roxy.

Love Interests

As young adults, Betty and Wilma were employed as cigarette girls/waitresses at a resort. There, they first met, and fell in love, with their future husbands, Fred and Barney.
