Flintstones Daily Comics November 1961 Part 2

Fred Flintstone gets to be a hypocrite AND a letch in the daily comics during the second half of 1961. It’s all pretty innocuous stuff, of course. And while some of the gags in the strips may seem familiar, they’re still funny (though the tired old pun about “ants” is a little much).

The comics are mostly about Fred and Wilma, though we see Barney in a few and Betty in one. Dino appears as well, looking whacked out listening to Wilma’s gossip.

Flintstones Daily Strips, November 1961 Part 1

We’re back with another month of daily newspaper comics starring Fred Flintstone. Pebbles hadn’t been invented yet, so the strips revolve around Fred and Barney or Fred and Wilma.

I’m afraid there’s no Dino and no Baby Puss this month.

Gene Hazelton came up with some great creatures. Check out the dinosaurs in the November 10th comic and the triceratops in the 15th. And on the 4th we get the familiar record-playing bird.

Shouldn’t Orville O. Orbit be in a Jetsons comic? (Yeah, I know. There was no Jetsons comic strip and no Jetsons in 1961).
