Followed byThe Flintstone Comedy Show

The show was a repackaging of old episodes of The New Fred and Barney Show and The Thing segments (originally broadcast as Fred and Barney Meet the Thing) combined with episodes of The New Shmoo.

Despite the show's title, the segments remained separate and did not crossover with one another. The characters of Fred Flintstone, Barney Rubble, the Thing and Shmoo were only featured together in brief bumpers between segments, and the original half-hour episodes of The New Shmoo were now split into two-parters, allowing more mingling and mixing of the program's individual segments. In 1980, the Shmoo joined Fred and Barney as part-time police officers on the Bedrock Cops segment of The Flintstone Comedy Show.

Like many animated series created by Hanna-Barbera in the 1970s, the show contained a laugh track, one of their last productions to do so.
