Hoyt Curtin seemed quite comfortable with jazzy, brassy arrangements, so perhaps it’s appropriate one of his famous theme songs got a guitar jazz workout.

Below is Meet the Flintstones performed by the George Barnes Quintet. The notes accompanying it say
“unreleased material from a 1977 Concord, Calif., concert that was recorded a little more than a month before Barnes’ sudden death at the age of 56. Here Barnes leads a quartet-manned by Bay Area rhythm-section veterans drummer Benny Barth and bassist Dean Reilly, and guitarist Duncan James, one of his students at the time-through tunes that, for the most part, were featured on the last two albums he made for the Concord label.”
