The Flintstones' New Neighbors is a 1980 animated television special and is the first of The Flintstone Special limited-run prime time revival of The Flintstones produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions which premiered on NBC on September 26, 1980.


The Flintstones' New Neighbors was animated at Filman, an animation studio in Madrid, Spain (headed by Carlos Alfonso and Juan Pina) who did a lot of animation work for Hanna-Barbera between the early 1970s through the mid-1980s. Like many animated series created by Hanna-Barbera in the 1970s, the show contained a laugh track created by the studio, one of the last productions to do so.


The Flintstones and the Rubbles welcome a new strange family, The Frankenstones, to their Bedrock neighborhood.

The Frankenstones

The Frankenstone family featured on this special was a different version of the Frankenstones from the episode "Fred and Barney Meet the Frankenstones" of The New Fred and Barney Show (1979).

The new Frankenstone family members are:

  • Frank Frankenstone
  • Oblivia Frankenstone, his wife
  • Hidea Frankenstone, their daughter
  • Stubby Frankenstone, their son
  • A friendship develops between the Flintstones and the Frankenstones, not unlike the rivalry that would be depicted later between Fred and Frank on The Flintstone Comedy Show. This version of the Frankenstones continued to appear throughout the run of the specials.
