"The Stonefinger Caper" is the tenth episode of the sixth season of The Flintstones. It aired on November 19, 1965.

Synopsis

A hackneyed spy movie turns serious when the villainous Stonefinger and his henchmen suddenly come to life and begin to menace Fred and Barney. It takes Gazoo's magical powers to get the situation straightened out.

Plot

On returning to homes from a secret agent movie (From Crusher With Love) at the Bedrock Drive-in, the Flintstones and Rubbles comment that their lives lack excitement. Gazoo offers some adrenaline-surging thrills to Fred and Barney, and the cavemen are unenthusiastic about any more troublesome magic by Gazoo. Unbeknown to them, what they crave is actually already in its beginning stages.

SPLERSH, an international crime syndicate, thinks that Barney is Dr. Rockinheimer, a wealthy, foreign scientist with a secret formula for converting ordinary stone into uraniumrock, and who, apart from beard, mustache, and eye-glasses, resembles Barney. This belief is given credence when members of the syndicate observe Fred and Barney cavorting in a fancy car provided to them by Gazoo. Complications involving the car also include $50 speeding and parking tickets.

Fred and Barney order Gazoo to teleport the car into oblivion- and for Gazoo to go away and never come back. SPLERSH then abducts Fred and Barney, and its stone-fingered leader (Stonefinger) demands that Barney surrender the formula, or die, Barney and Fred both, at the jaws of a horrorsaurus, a huge, vicious carnivore. Fred and Barney plead for Gazoo to help them, and Gazoo appears at their side and reduces the monster and the criminals to infancy, freeing the grateful Fred and Barney.
