The Flintstones

The Flintstones was a syndicated series of American comic strips that was adapted and based on the original series of the same name by Hanna-Barbera and published daily and weekly by the McNaught Syndicate and later by the Editors Press Service.


The Flintstones comic strips were announced on October 1, 1961 and the very first strip began on October 2, 1961, the next day after the title was announced. They were illustrated by Gene Hazelton who drew them and was assisted at one time or another by artists including Roger Armstrong, Dick Bickenbach, Dale Hale, Harvey Eisenberg and Jesse Marsh.

The Later Years

After McNaught went out of business in the mid-1980s, The Flintstones was picked up by Editors Press Service and drawn by Don Sherwood (Gene Hazelton's successor) on September 24, 1985 through April 9, 1994 and Karen D. Matchette on April 11, 1994 through August 29, 1998.
