The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas


The Great Gazoo/Mick Jagged

Before The Flintstones were everyone's favorite Stone Age family, Fred was just a regular guy looking for the girl of his dreams, and his romance with Wilma sets the stage for this prequel to the 1994 screen adaptation of the popular cartoon series. Fred Flintstone (Mark Addy), a working-class caveman who earns his living at Mr. Slate's quarry, falls in love with wealthy heiress Wilma Slaghoople (Kristen Johnson). While many people think that Fred is out of his league including Wilma's mother Pearl (Joan Collins) and her father, Col. Slaghoople (Harvey Korman) he's determined to win her heart. And when his best friend Barney Rubble (Stephen Baldwin) decides to take his best girl Betty (Jane Krakowski) for a fun weekend in Rock Vegas, he invites Wilma to tag along. -- Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

Alan did a guest spot on Kristen Johnston's series 3rd Rock from the Sun.

The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas recast all the major roles from 1994's The Flintstones; Harvey Korman is the only actor to appear in both films, (though in different roles in the previous movie, he was the voice of the Dictabird).

Harvey Korman provided the voice for The Great Gazoo in the original cartoon series.

Thomas Gibson also had a small role in Eyes Wide Shut.

Mark Addy is probably best known for his role in The Full Monty which also starred Robert Carlysle (Plunkett and Macleane).

Alan did most of his scenes in front of a blue screen, hanging from the ceiling in a harness. Using special effects, they made his body smaller to give him the look of the Gazoo.

Dino's voice was re-created from old tracks made by the original voice: the late Mel Blanc.

The Flintstones Viva Rock Vegas has earned the not so wonderful prestige of being nominated for 4 Golden Raspberry Awards including Worst Picture, Worst Supporting Actress (Joan Collins), Worst Supporting Actor (Stephen Baldwin) and Worst Remake or Sequel. "Winners" will be announced on March 24, 2001.
