Google Celebrates “The Flintstones” 50th Anniversary With a Doodle

SMS Text

Today the Google logo has been replaced by a doodle, as it often is. This one is a graphic of the wildly popular animated sitcom, The Flintstones. This doodle is to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the show that brought the town of bedrock into our lives and introduced us to so many classic characters such as the Flintstones and their best friends and neighbors, the Rubbles.

Obviously I watched this cartoon many many years after it had gone into syndication, but it was always one of my favorite shows growing up. I longed for a dino-doggy (even more than I wanted my own Clifford the Big Red Dog), I wanted my shower to be a woolly mammoth spraying me from his trunk and I always asked my dad why we had to spend money on gas for the cars when he could just cut the bottom out and use his feet.

And, unlike the Google Dots doodle fiasco, I am sure that there won’t be an uproar about this graphic being too distracted or taxing on your computers.

    Are we supposed to be impressed –with google? This is “important? Anniversary of Women's right to vote: a tiny ribbon. A cartoon 'anniversary': gets attention and another dumb, poorly-done illustration. Google: can't “afford” a GOOD illustrator –or any judgement? I'm so Done with Google –too bad they aren't done –with Evil attempts to control EVERY thing.
