Following Gazoo's advice to represent his co-workers in requesting a raise in salary from Slate, Fred is dismissed when Slate decides to increase the pay of the other workers by reallocating funds- with Fred's defunct payroll.
Unable to tell Wilma about losing his job, Fred loiters in a park and readies to eat the lunch prepared for him by Wilma- including a slice of Gravelberry Pie, which impresses P. J. Safestone, a businessman visiting the park. Safestone, owner of a supermarket chain, establishes a deal with Fred to sell bulk numbers of the pies, with the Flintstones and Rubbles providing the confection. Fred coronates himself as the Gravelberry Pie King, using his first pay-check from the prominent grocer to buy a king's costume, and is happy- with Wilma, the Rubbles, babies, and pets as his help- to assembly-line manufacture Gravelberry Pies, until Wilma calculates that money is being lost in the transaction.
When Fred becomes greedy and proposes an increase in his pay far above what is needed, Safestone opts out of the deal, leaving Fred with 500 pies that he is unable to sell, even at a low price, on a roadside. Wilma rescues Fred from this predicament by visiting Safestone and tactfully selling to him the 500 pies along with the recipe, then by visiting and persuading Mr. Slate to rehire Fred.
