In trying to organize a birthday party for his daughter, Pebbles and a Lodge party on the same night, Fred mixes things up. As a result, Rocko the Clown shows up to the Lodge party, while the Boulderettes arrive at the Flintstones' home to entertain the tots.
A bumbling caterer hired by Fred to provide same-night entertainment at Pebbles' birthday party and at the Water Buffalo Lodge incorrectly sends soda pop and Rocko the Clown to the Lodge and cactus juice and dancing girls (the ravishing Boulderettes) to Pebbles' party at the Flintstone residence. The scapegoat is, of course, Fred, for Wilma and Fred's brother Buffalos. Wilma is furious with Fred, who strives to prevent illicit juvenile revels at home and to stop a riot at the Lodge.
While at the Lodge, Fred is attacked by his irritable Lodge brothers, who have already humiliated Rocko by pinning a donkey's tail on his rear. After one of the Flintstones' neighbors telephones the Bedrock P.D., everyone at both parties is arrested, and the caterer is summoned to account for his disastrous confusion. He readily admits to his mistake, for he is the only caterer in town and thus apparently in no danger of losing clientele.

- The turtlesaurus is named Jack, the brontosaurus is Elsie, and two gophersauruses are named Harriet and Harry.
- One of the very few episodes where we see the Flintstones' pet saber toothed cat, Baby Puss, who throws Fred out of the house during the closing credits of each episode. Not only that, but in this episode, the cat himself actually talks.
- This episode was used as a major plot device from the episode of the fourth season, "Sixteen Candles and 400-Pound Men" on Boy Meets World in 1996.
- The quick high leg-kicking blonde dancing girls, [on the floor] are six. When they popped out of Pebbles' extra-large birthday cake, there were ten blonde dancing girls. They came out of a disguised cardboard box, that looks like an extra large cake, extremely quick, before their quick high leg kick continuous dancing, through out the remainder of the mistakes, by the short-memory caterer.
