Fred reclines on his hammock during a holiday weekend on which Wilma's mother, [[Pearl Slaghoople]] is visiting.

"The Long, Long, Long Weekend " is the seventeenth episode of the sixth season and the one hundred and fifty-seventh overall episode of the original series, The Flintstones. It aired on January 21, 1966.

SynopsisEdit

The Great Gazoo takes the Flintstone and Rubble couples into the 21st century.

PlotEdit

Fred reclines on his hammock during a holiday weekend on which Wilma's mother, Pearl Slaghoople is visiting. When Fred scoffs at Barney's Rock Rogers comic book for its supposedly ludicrous prediction of far-future space travel, he is chastised by Gazoo: "Flintstone, when you laugh, you show not only your tonsils but your ignorance." Leaving their children in Pearl's care, the Flintstone and Rubble couples go for a pleasure drive in Fred's car, only to be caught in freeway traffic.

Gazoo appears and offers to Fred a glimpse of the future by transporting the Flintstone car and the occupants there, with the road-automobile changing to an air-car of a futuristic design. Gazoo assures Fred and Barney that Wilma and Betty will accept the experience without question and will not remember it after it has ended.

So, Flintstones and Rubbles explore a city with shops and restaurants in the clouds, moving sidewalks, jet-powered dinner trays and tiny servings of meat, robot barbers, and public transportation to Mars, where Fred, Wilma, Barney, and Barney stray from the main tourist group and are terrified by a three-headed monster that is really a costume for actors in a movie.

Scurrying back to their space-bus, the Flintstones and Rubbles are brought back to Earth, where Fred visits the still-operating Slate Construction and meets Slate's distant descendant. Gazoo then returns the Flintstones and Rubbles back to the Stone Age, and Fred thanks Gazoo for the look at things to come, but nevertheless prefers his own time.
