Gene Hazelton or someone writing stories for Hanna-Barbera newspaper comics must have had rock-and-rolling nieces in mind. A Yogi Bear comic 50 years ago this month features one, and so does a Flintstones. We get golf in a couple, garbage in a couple and Fred drives four out of the five plots. Dino makes one incidental appearance and that’s in the opening panel of the January 1st comic. Barney shows up once and Betty not at all. The colour versions are courtesy of Richard Holliss.
January 1, 1967.
January 8, 1967. I like how wild dinosaurs stand around in the first panel, second row.
January 15, 1967. Nothing like a triceratops snow plow.
January 22, 1967.
January 29, 1967. Patty?! Shouldn’t her name be Rock-elle or Stone-ella or something like that?
