Hot Lips Hannigan is a titular one-time character of the episode of the same name, featured in the first season of the original series, The Flintstones.


Hot Lips Hannigan is a trumpeter and an old friend of Fred Flintstone who works at the Rockland nightclub in Bedrock.


He acts smooth-talking, but this is an act to appeal to the younger generation. He reveals his beatnik persona is merely an act to keep Bedrock's youth interested in music, and his real teachers of music were older, classier acts. Barney and Fred offer to help spur interest in the older musicians with him.

Physical Appearance

Hot Lips Hannigan is a tall and stout caveman with fair skin, tan stubbles, black eyebrows, black beady eyes, a bald head with four hair strands on the sides and a black pointed goatee. He wears a sleeveless purple and black-spotted loin cloth, a purple beret and black glasses on his head.

Role in the episode

He was performing at the Rockland nightclub, where he met up with Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble, who got them to perform with him.

In a later episode "The Girls' Night Out", when Fred became a rock star known as "Hi Fi", Bedrock's teenagers became enamored with him. When one of them said they always listen to Hot Lips, a girl said "Hot Lips Hannigan is out! Hi-Fi is in!"
