About Fred Flintstone
Fred is the head figure of the Flintstone family and the protagonist of the animated sitcom series of the same name. Back in the 1960’s, he was voiced by Alan Reed and then portrayed by John Goodman in the 1994 live-action movie The Flintstones. The story follows the funny mishaps of a working-class caveman in a modernized depiction of the Stone Age that is very reminiscent of the 1950’s suburban life.
He works as a “bronto-crane operator” for Slate Rock and Gravel Company, a mining company located at Bedrock City, where he lives with his wife Wilma and his daughter Pebbles. Moreover, Fred is an incredibly talented bowling player and so he frequents the bowling alley to show off his skills. Also of interest, Fred belongs to the Loyal Order of Water Buffalos, a fictional fraternity based on the Freemasons.
Finally, Fred has a bit of a temper and although he is friendly, he is known to have spurs of anger due to his lack of patience. Aside from that he can also be somewhat naive with a tendency to look for overly convoluted ways to solve the simplest of problems. At the end, Fred is a loving husband, father and friend.
