Celebrated composer Hoagy Carmichael supplies the voice for his animated likeness in this first episode of The Flintstones' second season. Once again dreaming of overnight wealth and success, Fred and Barney go into the songwriting business. Since neither of our heroes can tell one note from another, they hire a fast-buck hack named "Scat" Von Roctoven to set their lyrics to music. Unfortunately, Von Roctoven has plagiarized a little ditty called "Stardust". . . In addition to "guesting" in this episode, Hoagy Carmichael also penned an original song for the occasion, "Yabba Dabba Doo." (Trivia note: The voice of Barney is provided by Daws Butler, who substituted for the ailing Mel Blanc).

Fred's Cousin Tumbleweed invites the Flintstones and the Rubbles to "ranch-sit" for him at his huge western spread. While exploring the ranch, Fred and Barney suddenly spot a band of Indians--and, terrified, they run back to their wives to announce that they're being attacked. Little do our heroes realize that the Indians are actors, working for a film company shooting nearby. Daws Butler substitutes for Mel Blanc as Barney's voice in this episode.

A pay cut at the rock quarry prompts Fred to seek out new employment. He and Barney end up as school bus drivers, hired to shepherd "fifty future presidents" from Bedrock to Redrock and back again. After a traumatic first day on the job, our heroes make several mistakes on Day Two, not least of which is delivering several kids to the wrong houses! Trivia note: most of the children are named for the kids of the Flintstones production crew.

In this droll dual takeoff of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and the Hitchcock feature film Rear Window, Fred is unnerved by his new neighbor Alvin Brickrock, a short, squat Britisher who can be heard arguing with his harridan of a wife. Then, one night, the arguing stops suddenly--and not long afterward, Mrs. Brickrock disappears. These and several other ominous incidents lead Fred and Barney to conclude that Alvin Brickrock is actually the notorious wife slayer Albert Bonehart. The satire is played to the hilt, concluding with Mr. Brickrock bidding the audience a fond "Good ev-e-ning."

Tired of Wilma's complaints that he takes her for granted, Fred arranges to spend a second honeymoon at the couple's former romantic rendezvous, the Rock Mountain Inn, on the occasion of their 15th wedding anniversary. Upon their arrival, Fred and Wilma are told that the judge who presided over their marriage was a phony--meaning, of course, that they aren't legally married. You guessed it: Fred is forced to woo and win Wilma a second time...and she isn't about to make it easy for him!

Tired of being besieged by his legions of fans, movie star Rock Quarry yearns for the days when he was just a humble gas jockey named Gus Schultz. Eluding his handlers, Rock befriends Fred and Barney, who, unaware of his true identity, invite him to dinner. All this has an astonishing effect on Quarry's two biggest fans: Wilma and Betty. John Stephenson supplies the voice of Rock Quarry, utilizing a Gary Cooper imitation that many critics deemed to be in questionable taste because Cooper had recently passed away (although the episode's voicetracks were recorded before the actor died).

Fred and Barney go into the private detective game, but business is slim to none until a gorgeous blonde named Dagmar slinks into their office to hire them for a job. Unbeknownst to our heroes, Dagmar is really "The Peroxide Kid", gun moll for criminal Boss Rockhead, who intends to use Fred and Barney as dupes for his upcoming bank heist. By the time our heroes figure out what's what, Rockhead and his henchman are taking them for a little one-way ride--and it's up to Wilma and Betty to save their husbands from an untimely end.

Fred hopes to improve his employment opportunities by enrolling in Prinstone University. Though he must suffer the hazing process at the hands of snotty upper classmen who are decades younger than he is, Fred ultimately emerges as Big Man on Campus when he is drafted for the Varsity Football team just before the big game against Shale U. Note in this episode how Fred's boss "Mr. Slate" looks nothing like the Mr. Slate who appears in later episodes (a common Hanna-Barbera quirk, as witness the many shapes and forms of Yogi Bear's Ranger Smith!)

In an effort to sneak off to a poker game, Fred tells Wilma that he's actually visiting a sick friend. The fun begins when Fred wins $200 in the game, forcing him to spin another fabrication, informing Wilma that he merely found the money. Dutifully, Wilma puts an add in the paper in hopes of finding the money's "rightful owner"...and now Fred REALLY has to do some quick thinking! Watch for a cute "point-of-view" shot in the climactic chase scene.

The appeal of The Flintstones is largely due to the show's similarities with "our" world. Even though it took place in the stone-age, Fred would complain about work while Betty and Wilma chatted gossip.
