Voice cast

Production

The Flintstones' New Neighbors and Jogging Fever were animated at Filman, an animation studio in Madrid, Spain (headed by Carlos Alfonso and Juan Pina) who did a lot of animation work for Hanna-Barbera between the early 1970s through the mid-1980s. Among their credits were such series as Yogi's Space Race, Buford and the Galloping Ghost, The Little Rascals, Paw Paws, The Smurfs and The Jetsons (1980s revival) as well as the specials The Harlem Globetrotters Meet Snow White and Yogi's First Christmas. This would explain why, artistically, the backgrounds in some of these specials look very much like pencil and charcoal drawings, very different from the original series and its spin-offs.

All specials utilized an inferior laugh track created by the studio, the last production to do so.

Home media

On October 9, 2012, Warner Archive released all four specials on DVD in region 1 as part of their Hanna-Barbera Classic Collection in a release entitled The Flintstones Prime-Time Specials Collection: Volume 2.
