The world wants, no, demands more Flintstones content, and Elizabeth Banks is going to make it happen.
Banks will executive produce and star in Bedrock, an animated Flintstones spin-off series that follows an adult Pebbles Flintstone, voiced by Banks. The project was actually first announced back in 2019 and now it’s ended up at Fox. This isn’t Fox’s first attempt to revive The Flintstones, either – they once ordered a Flintstones reboot from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, but ended up passing on the project in 2012.

Back when The Simpsons was still operating at the top of their game, they delivered what might be the best version of neighbor Ned Flanders. And soon you’ll be able to bring him home to admire on your collectible shelf.
In “Little Big Mom,” the tenth episode of the eleventh season, Homer Simpson tries to prove that he still needs the skis he bought after the Nagano Olympics by taking the family on a ski trip. While on the slopes, he runs into Ned Flanders, but rather than being warm and cozy in a big winter coat and his usual green sweater, we get Stupid Sexy Flanders in a skin-tight ski suit that shows off the family man’s goods. Now Kidrobot has turned Stupid Sexy Flanders into a stupid sexy collectible vinyl figure. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
At this point, I think the heat death of the universe will occur before The Simpsons comes to an end. The longest-running primetime scripted show in television history just got longer as Fox has gone ahead and renewed the show for seasons 33 and 34. At one point, I was a Simpsons obsessive, and my brain is a mess of Simpsons quotes and references that go all the way up until, oh, let’s say season 14, at which point I bailed. But obviously, other people keep watching, or Fox wouldn’t keep ordering new seasons.
