Pebbles - Part 2

I my minds eye Fred is saying something to the affect of, "Thank the Gods your mother is a heavy sleeper."  I never could figure out a decent way of phrasing it for a speech bubble.  On that note, did The Flintstones ever get into religion or what god(s) they worshiped?  The Stone Age is a little pre-Jeebus, so that pretty much rules out God Almighty and Gozer the Gozerian.

  1. I don't believe so.

    From what I remember, Christmas was the only religion related topic to appear in The Flintstones. And it wasn't even treated in the religious sense.

    1. Well, they most certainly worshiped the (advertising) money gods:

  2. Wake up. Check your blog. BAM! Instant greatness! I really dig that very-Fred-esque look you gave the sly bastard. You continue to impress, buddy. By the way, you've colored all these of mine and I've never returned the favor. Email me if you want to request anything.

    There were a few instances of religion being mentioned in The Flintstones, one I can clearly remember is when Pebbles and BamBam start playing instruments and singing. The song is about the how evil the devil is or something to that extent. It ends up all being just a dream that Fred had but it's still a reference nonetheless.

    1. Actually, truth to tell, I was entertaining the idea of Fred "trying to find the right hole" with an inset close-up of a squinty-eyed, teeth-clenched Pebbles saying "that's not it"....but decided against it.

      One could argue that they're religious in the sense that they (Fred and Barney) are members of the Loyal Order of Water Buffalos Lodge (Loyal Order of Dinosaurs in an early episode). Seeing as most lodges and fraternal orders (Masons, Shriner, Moose, etc) have a prerequisite of being a Christian it would make sense (at least to me) that they worship....something.

  3. As a kid I always wanted to be a member of the Water Buffalos, lol

    Also the "finding the right hole" idea would have been excellent.

    1. I had no desire to be in an adult frat when I was a kid. My grandfather was a Shriner, phez and all. He also had one of the little cars and drove in every single parade and grocery store opening back in the 70s and 80s.

      Wanna take a wild guess who was the one washing and waxing that damned thing every single week?
