Flintstones are an iconic animated cartoon series from Hanna-Barbera. It debuted in 1960 and still to this day remains relevant in pop culture. The characters created are famous in their own right and have graced the front of many products over the years as brand ambassadors. Let’s take a look at some of the most famous products related to the Flintstones, some of which that are still in circulation today.

Flintstones Push Pops made their debut in the nineties and are still around today, just not with the Flintstone brand.
