Summary

The Flintstone Kids learn the value of saying no to drugs as they set out to win tickets to the upcoming Michael Jackstone concert. Wilma is tempted to drift away from her usual playmates Freddy, Barney and Betty and join up with a gang of older kids whose leader, Stoney, uses marijuana. However, Wilma resists the peer-pressure tactics of the pre-teen pothead and instead seeks advice from her parents, who tell her that a real friend wouldn't offer her drugs, while her true friends remind her that she doesn't need drugs to be cool. To the tune of La Toya Jackson's original composition, "Just Say No," Wilma, Freddy and the others establish their own "Just Say No" club.

Next, Freddy starts up a pet cleaning service to raise ticket money for the upcoming Michael Jackstone concert. But Freddy's get-rich-quick scheme falls through due to Stoney tampering with the instructions for each pet. After figuring out what happened, the children realize that their only hope of obtaining tickets is to beat Stoney and his gang at the upcoming Riddle Rally, at which they succeed, with Stoney's gang subsequently abandoning him to join the "Just Say No" club, after which Stoney is arrested for drug usage. The program concludes with a version of Michael Jackson's hit song "Beat It", with the lyrics specially rewritten to convey an anti-drug theme.

This special also features comments from then-First Lady Nancy Reagan, Honorary Chair of the "Just Say No Foundation", who offers a message of support to children who have chosen to live a drug-free life.

Home media

The Flintstone Kids' "Just Say No" Special was released on VHS by World Vision Home Video in 1988. Due to legal music licensing issues with the use of Michael Jackson’s "Beat It", this TV special remains in obscurity.
