The Flintstones

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has scored the rights to reboot the classic cartoon The Flintstones.

MacFarlane will produce the series for the Fox network in the US with a 2013 launch date slated.

“One of the first things that I drew when I was 2 years old was Fred Flintstone,” MacFarlane told the buyers at the recent Fox upfronts.

While much of the cartoon will remain the same in the reboot, MacFarlane confirmed that some things will have to be updated.

“What’s the animal version of the iPod?” he said. “That’s the kind of thing we have to think about.”
