Alan Reed is best remembered as the original voice of Fred Flintstone, but he'd also logged some time doing "face acting", working on live-action projects. After The Flintstones' original run ended in 1966, Reed took advantage of his lack of recognizance with viewers to pursue some "face acting" jobs. One of these landed him on The Beverly Hillbillies in the episode, "The Rass'lin Clampetts", which first aired in January 1968. Here, Reed plays a wrestling promoter dealing with a spike in television ratings after a relative novice----Granny (Irene Ryan)----becomes an overnight sensation. Hey, this would be the sort of scenario that Fred Flintstone would fit into, wouldn't it?
