Seth MacFarline has inked a deal with FOX to revamp the iconic ‘Flintstones’ cartoon series for their animation domination lineup, but will he keep it traditional, or incorporate some of the dirty humor seen in his other shows.
MacFarline will reboot the 60’s cartoon franchise, but fans are wondering if his modern spin will be reminiscent of Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble’s cameos on Family Guy.
In a statement, MacFarline explained:
“”The very first cartoon character I drew at age two was Fred Flintstone, So it’s appropriate that events have come full circle, allowing me to produce the newest incarnation of this great franchise. Plus, I think America is finally ready for an animated sitcom about a fat, stupid guy with a wife who’s too good for him.”
MacFarline’s cartoons have come under fire from the Parent’s Television Council fairly often for the indecent humor, but have also been one of the most popular of the FOX lineup for more than 10 years, it will be interesting to see which route he takes.
