Although the Flintstones Family is the star of the animated series, we can’t forget about their neighbor and best friends, the Rubble family! Barney and Betty Rubble were neighbors to Wilma and Fred Flintstone, and Barney Rubble costumes would be a lot of fun for a Halloween costume party. Barney and Fred grew up close friends and has many misadventures together.

Barney and Betty had a lot of fun over the years with their best friends Fred and Wilma. Going to the Halloween party as Barney Rubble would ensure everyone had a yabba-dabba-do good time!
“The Flintstones” chronicles the prehistoric life of Fred Flintstone, a hard-working rock quarry employee that just wants to come home and enjoy a Brontosaurus steak served up by his pretty wife Wilma. He also enjoys bowling, pool, poker and just lounging about his Bedrock home. An interesting piece of Flintstone trivia is that studio execs-based Fred’s personality on the Ralph Kramden character from the 1950s show, “The Honeymooners.” The humor of “The Flintstones” is premised on two main gags. First, the (fictional) fact that there are caveman people co-existing with dinosaurs in the prehistoric era and second, the contradicting “conveniences” that the Flintstone characters incorporated into everyday life such as foot-powered cars, wooly mammoth dishwashers and an automatic razor made with a clam shell vibrating with bees!
If you caught these cartoon episodes the first time they aired, you might have seen some of the commercials Fred was a pitchman for such as Winston cigarettes and Yabba Dabba Dew juice drink. Today, Fred’s mug is still grinning on the Post Pebbles cereal boxes! Fred’s been on the big screen, too. In the 1994 live-action film, “The Flintstones”, John Goodman played this larger-than-life character whose loudmouth and scheming ways are the center of the plot.
You’ll go down in pre-historic history sporting a Fred costume at Halloween or birthday party. In sizes to fit toddlers, children, teens and adults, Fred costumes are designed with a cartoon-like flair that features faux animal skins, fake bones and other stone age accessories. Fred rules as king of his cave wearing a bright orange coat printed with faux animal markings – perhaps saber-tooth tiger? Add lots of laughs to your Fred costume with a highly stylized Fred wig and huge “foot” shoe covers (because the Flintstones always went barefoot). For special events, Fred also occasionally wore a very wide tie and, when going the lodge, a furry blue hat punctuated by horns.
These costume ideas are great for couples as you can go as Fred and Wilma or Barney and Betty and if you have some extra friends who want to tag along they can go as adorable little Pebbles or Bamm Bamm. Have some fun this Halloween in your very own amazing Flintstones costume.
