Plot

A celebrity roast for Fred Flintstone from the original series, The Flintstones is held in honor of his 48th birthday, featuring characters from various animated Hanna-Barbera shows including Yogi Bear, Jabberjaw, Huckleberry Hound, Scooby-Doo, The Banana Splits, Hong Kong Phooey, Quick Draw McGraw, Snagglepuss and the Hair Bear Bunch.

The show's presenters were Roy Clark and Bonnie Franklin, and included guest stars The Sylvers, British comedy duo Course & Young (Mike Course and Bob Young), the Fenton kids (Steve, Robin, Jack, Lisa and Todd), Sashi Kuchiki, the Ice Capettes and a special appearance by The Skatebirds (whose Saturday morning series was airing on CBS at the time). Throughout the special, the live-action celebrity roast sequences are interspersed with animated segments featuring Fred and Barney.

When Clark and Franklin announce the guest of honor, Fred and Barney are at home watching the event on TV. Fred suddenly realizes he thought the event was scheduled for the following night. As Fred and Barney rush to the ice arena, the show continues with musical numbers, ice displays including a comedy team, precision skating, disco-on-ice, jazz skating and an acrobatic number with fiery torches. When a costumed Fred finally arrives, the guests perform a "Happy Birthday" salute.
