"The Most Beautiful Baby in Bedrock" is the tenth episode of the fifth season and the one hundred and twenty-fourth overall episode of the original series, The Flintstones. It aired on November 19, 1964.

Synopsis

While their parents argue about which couple has the more beautiful child, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm take to their knees and crawl away.

Plot

Relations between the Flintstones and Rubbles deteriorate rapidly when Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm are both entered in the Water Buffalo Lodge's baby beauty contest. Not only are Fred and Barney squabbling, but Wilma and Betty angrily diverge too.

Fred and Barney both strive to secure votes for their respective child among the Bedrock public, and the competition escalates to rival ice cream vending trucks, giant billboards, and picnics with free food for all. When Fred and Barney begin physically fighting, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm wander away from the picnic site, and Flintstones and Rubbles reconcile in their successful search for their missing babies.
