Toon Sports: Little League comes to Bedrock (The Flintstones, 1962)

In the season 2 finale of The Flintstones, Fred (Alan Reed) volunteers as a Little League umpire, while Barney (Mel Blanc) is one of the coaches.

"Take Me Out To The Ballgame" offers an object lesson that can still work today. You'll see what I mean.

In light of reports of selfish, greedy parents spoiling an Easter egg hunt in Connecticut on Easter Sunday, and with baseball season kicking into full swing next Sunday, I thought this might serve as a lesson to today's parents about such negative feelings in sports......

Rating: B-.
