The Flintstones Frequently
Asked Questions List
9. What's up with that cat, anyway? It appears in the framing sequences but never in the show!
Baby Puss, the Flintstone family's cat, actually does appear a couple of
times in the original series, but is noticeably absent from the vast
majority of episodes--surprising, considering that the cat is the only
character other than Fred who is singled out in the aired theme song's
lyrics. One possible explanation is that Dino and Baby Puss, judging from
what little evidence we have, generally did not get along very well, so the
cat didn't hang around the house much.
