"The Rolls Rock Caper" is the twenty-third episode of the fifth season of The Flintstones. It aired on February 19, 1965.


Fred and Barney wind up on an adventure and are seen in a TV show called Smile, You're on My Favorite Crime.


Returning to their homes from a jaunt to a store to obtain Gravel Pistachio ice cream, Fred and Barney are intercepted and honored to be deputized by suave television detective Aaron Boulder. Travelling in the "millionaire cop"'s Rolls Rocks, which is chauffeured by an Oriental named Gus, Fred and Barney, on Boulder's behalf, investigate the murder of the owner of the Stone Dust Club- while television's star sleuth spends all of his time romancing beautiful ladies.

Fred's physique comes repeatedly under attack from people who bristle at police questioning. Poor Fred is fist-beaten by thugs in the apartment of Cookie Quartz, the murder victim's lady friend whom Fred and Barney wish to interrogate, repeatedly pummelled in a boxing ring by Rocky Gravelano, another reluctant provider of information, and tossed by apish hoodlums out of a high rise window of the Waldorf-Astonia dwelling of "bad girl" Tootsie Slabstone, and when he and Barney, disguised as waiters, finally corner the murder mystery's prime suspect, heiress Mrs. Mortimer Mortar, a cantankerous lady, in a shipboard night club, they are caught in a yacht-obliterating explosion caused by a volatile cigarette filter used by the self-destructing evil-doer, who admits her guilt.

Boulder releases the battered but resilient deputies from gumshoe service, and Fred and Barney return home with the melted ice cream to Wilma and Betty, who watched the whole epic investigation on television (Boulder's new show, Smile- You're On My Favorite Crime, with Gus as the secret camera operator) and are immensely proud of their husbands
