I look forward to the set. Would be interesting if the vitamin and cigarette commercials had been included.
For everyone that brags about the cigarette (and beer) commercials, the Flintstones had a lot of sponsors:
Welch's Grape had been a longtime sponsor--anyone remember those Flintstones jelly-jar glasses?--but also Skippy peanut-butter.
And as the show moves into Seasons 4 and 5, notice how many lines we get of Wilma packing peanut-butter sandwiches for picnics, and about how Pebbles just loves her grape juice...
I haven't seen (Yellow Submarine) since I was a kid. It's been so long, there's kind of a mystique about it for me. Should I revisit? I've grown to truly love the Beatles music as I've gotten older.
Absolutely: It not only looks amazing on Blu--thanks to a DVD restoration overhaul in '00--but experienced adults can appreciate how much the script captures the Beatles' "Hard Day's Night" movie humor, even with the movie's Faux Four.
