YULETIDE COMES TO BEDROCK IN 'A FLINTSTONE FAMILY CHRISTMAS,' DEC. 18 ON ABC; STONE-AGE HOLIDAY SPECIAL SPREADS FAMILY CHEER

 LOS ANGELES, Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- In their first Christmas special since 1977 ("A Flintstone Christmas"), television's favorite Modern Stone-Age Family will haul out the hollystone in a half-hour ABC special, "A Flintstone Family Christmas," premiering Saturday, Dec. 18, 8-8:30 p.m. (EST). The series' original creators at Hanna-Barbera Productions Inc. bring the entire Flintstone clan back together for a good, old-fashioned family Christmas -- complete with turkeysaurus. This is one in a series of ongoing special programming events that will continue to support the animated property.
 "We couldn't resist having the Flintstones participate in a Christmas special this year," says Bill Hanna, executive producer of the ABC special and co-creator of The Flintstones. "We wanted to celebrate Fred, Wilma, Betty and Barney's first holiday as grandparents," Hanna explained in reference to Pebbles' and Bamm-Bamm's recently expanded family. "Christmas brings out the child in all of us," adds Joe Barbera, also executive producer and co-creator.
 "A Flintstone Family Christmas" is executive produced by "The Flintstones" series' original creators, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Larry Huber is producer; Sean Roche and David Ehrman share writing credits; Ray Patterson directs.
 Since 1957, Hanna-Barbera has pioneered television cartoons with beloved shows and characters, including "The Flintstones," "The Jetsons," "Scooby Doo," "Yogi Bear," "Huckleberry Hound" and many more. Now a part of Turner Broadcasting System Inc., Hanna-Barbera is a dynamic cartoon studio, creating contemporary cartoon hits for network television, cable and theatrical distribution worldwide.
