"The Hatrocks and the Gruesomes" is the nineteenth episode of the fifth season of the original series, The Flintstones. It aired on January 22, 1965.

SynopsisEdit

The Flintstones need to get rid of their house guests, the hillbilly Hatrocks, and hope that their creepy and sinister neighbors, the Gruesomes, can be of help.

PlotEdit

The Hatrocks have declared a truce with the Flintstones and come to Bedrock and Flintstone home territory to visit, and Fred does not dare to offend his irritating guests, whose extended stay is crowding the Flintstones out of their own house, not to mention skyrocketing Fred's food bill.

Fred asks the Gruesomes to scare the irritating Hatrocks into leaving his property, but the Hatrocks are anything but frightened by the Gruesomes. Fred's last hope involves bombarding the Hatrocks' ears with detested "bug music". The backwoods Hatrocks cannot abide the Beatles-like singing of Flintstones, Rubbles, and Gruesomes, and depart Fred's abode in haste to attend Bedrock's World's Fair.
