"Jealousy" is the twenty-third episode of the sixth season and the one hundred and sixty-third overall episode of the original series, The Flintstones. It aired on March 11, 1966.


Wilma's handsome childhood friend comes to town making Fred very jealous.


While trimming hedges, Fred expresses to Barney and Gazoo his excitement about an evening game of bowling, but Wilma, sporting a new hair style, reminds Fred about a violin recital to which Fred promised to accompany Wilma on the same evening. So, Fred feigns a headache to avoid an evening with, to quote Gazoo, "a bunch of long-haired squares."

Wilma announces that she does not intend to go alone to the recital. A school friend of hers, poet and hunk Wilbur Terwiligerock, agrees to be Wilma's "date" to the recital and to a subsequent dance, and Fred literally melts a block of ice tied by Wilma to his not-truly-painful but "hot" head. After watching Wilbur drive Wilma from home in a slick sports car, Fred goes with Barney to the bowling alley, where his preoccupation with Wilma and Wilbur results in a series of accidents.

Fred decides to venture to the post-recital dance and observe his wife and her chaperone, and he commands Gazoo to transform Barney into a woman named Barbara, with whom Fred dances in an attempt to make Wilma jealous. Wilma acts blaze toward Fred's dalliance with the sensual female Barney.

But later on at home, Fred and Wilma talk about what happened--Wilma admits that she found Wilbur to be a pretentious bore and Fred confesses to his jealousy towards Wilma hanging out with Wilbur (as well as confessing the true identity of his mysterious lady-friend).
