The Flintstones

"The Great Gazoo" is the seventh episode of the sixth season and the one hundred and forty-seventh overall episode of the original series, The Flintstones. It aired on October 29, 1965.


Fred and Barney meet the Great Gazoo, a little green alien sent to Earth to grant them magical wishes.


Fred and Barney meet Gazoo, a little, green man with magical powers, who crashes in a weird space capsule on the road in front of Fred's car. The alien from planet Zetox, exiled to Stone Age Earth by his people because of his scientific arrogance, must redeem himself by helping the Earthlings who have first discovered him on the primitive planet.

Thus, Gazoo provides the prehistoric "dum-dums" with everything that their greedy hearts desire, before a policeman arrives at the location to inquire about the clutter. No adult can see Gazoo except for Fred and Barney, and Gazoo causes all of the troublesome items to vanish. The police officer departs the site, thinking that he has hallucinated, and Wilma and Betty laugh at Fred and Barney's mention of their new, alien friend.

Fred and Barney try to use Gazoo to enable them to treat Wilma and Betty to dinner at the Chateau Rockinbleau, an expensive restaurant, but Gazoo does not appear on cue to supply the money to pay the two-hundred-and-twenty-five dollar cheque! The presumptuous cavemen are spared from a grueling night of dish washing when their wives bring saved vacation money to pay the dinner bill. Gazoo promises to try to be more reliable.
