Pebbles Flintstone is 50

Updated on February 22, 2013

Life after 50

On this day in History: February 22, 1963

Pebbles Flintstone was born to Fred and Wilma Flintstone in the town of Bedrock.

Big news today! Pebbles Flintstone is 50!

So today is Pebbles Flintstone’s 50th birthday. That makes me feel so old. I remember when she was just a baby. In fact, I remember when she was born. I was seven.

It was such a happy day in the Flintstone home when Pebbles was born during the third season…February 22, 1963 in fact. Everyone in Bedrock celebrated her birth and so did everyone in Hanna-Barbera’s cartoon world.

Rumor has it that Pebbles was first written into the cartoon as a boy. But then somebody decided that a doll could be successfully marketed if Fred and Wilma's offspring was female. Thus Pebbles came to be.

She was the cutest baby....born into that prehistoric family....

It seems impossible that so much time has passed and our dear little Pebbles Flintstone is 50.

Pebbles just hit a landmark birthday, a significant birthday that often changes women’s lives. I hope she doesn’t change too much from the lovable, lively, slightly mischievous girl we all know and love. I hope that Pebbles and Bamm Bamm weather the storm of menopause, empty nest syndrome, retirement, irritable bowel syndrome, and hip replacements together.

I hope it’s a good day for Pebbles. She made me happy with her antics and her sweet baby-ness every time I watched her cartoons.

Pebbles Flintstone is 50 today! I hope she has a good time, a dabba doo time, a gay old time!

      Useless trivia: in the early '70s "Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm Show," where Pebbles was a teenager (and she and Bam-Bamm played in a rockin' band), actress Sally Struthers of "All In the Family" fame provided her voice.
