The Flintstones Frequently
Asked Questions List
4. What was the very first episode of The Flintstones?
That depends on how you define "first." The first in order of production
was "The Swimming Pool" (P-1), which was recorded on April 1, 1960; but the
first to actually air on television was "The Flintstone Flyer" (P-2), which
was recorded on the following day. As for which ordering of the episodes is
"correct," that's largely a matter of personal taste. In syndication, the
episodes usually run in original airing sequence. This is also true of the full-season DVD sets.
Some would argue that the true "first" episode was never aired along with
the original series; see question 5 and 6.
