The Flintstones: On the Rocks is a one-off animated special starring the Flintstones. It was broadcast on November 3, 2001, on Cartoon Network.


Fred and Wilma's marriage is in serious jeopardy. After years of putting up with her husband's lazy, self-centered loitering, Wilma hopes that a second honeymoon in Rockapulco (a gift from the equally concerned Rubbles) will finally restore the passion in their relationship. Fred, in the meantime, looks at the idea as another excuse for a personal vacation and takes it for granted.

Meanwhile, a professional thief named Xavier succeeds in acquiring a rare diamond, but he loses it when his handbag is switched with Wilma's handbag. This forces Xavier to woo the frustrated Wilma in an effort to reclaim the diamond, which leads a worried Fred to re-evaluate his own conduct and feelings toward Wilma before he "loses her" for good. The two eventually discover Xavier's true purpose and reunite to save the day and restore their love.
