Well, aren’t they a couple of cuties! Pebbles Flinstone and Bamm-Bamm Rubble are playing together on the Sun City Peachtree bench.
Pebbles is the daughter of Wilma and Fred Flinstone, and Bamm-Bamm is the adopted son of the Flinstones’s best friends Betty and Barney Rubble. She was born at Bedrock Rockopedic Hospital on February 22, 10,000 B.C., according to the February 22, 1963 edition of TV Guide; however, most versions of the animated show say it was more like 1,000,000 B.C. Just a minor discrepancy…
Don’t you just love the bone in Pebbles’s hair? That’s her standard hairdo, compliments of her fashion-diva mom, Wilma. As a preteen, Pebbles wasn’t into fashion, but she was an excellent baseball player, which led to a misadventure involving her dad Fred in the prime-time special, The Flinstones: Little Big League.
By that time, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm had begun dating, and she was getting him and their friends into various misadventures. Sound familiar? Yeah, she was taking after her dad by getting into schemes that would inevitably backfire.
Pebbles best friends are Moonrock Crater, Wiggy Rockstone, and Penny Pillar. They all attended Bedrock High School. In the hallways, you could often hear Pebbles exclaim, “Yabba-Dabba-Doozie!” which was similar to her dad’s favorite catchphrase, “Yabba-Dabba-Doo!”
As an adult, Pebbles pursued a career in advertising, married Bamm-Bamm, and moved with him to Hollyrock. They had fraternal twins, Chip and Roxy.
Meanwhile, back when Pebbles was a baby, Betty and Barney found an adorable little fella on their doorstep. Who would abandon such a cutie? As soon as he could talk, he was known for shrieking, “Bamm-Bamm! Bamm, bamm, bamm!”
The tyke hangs onto his club like other babies drag around their blankets. He has quite the powerful swing with that thing, so watch out! At least he is careful around Pebbles, because it was love at first sight during their first play date. He even helped her learn how to walk.
As a teenager, Bamm-Bamm acquired a “cave buggy,” a prehistoric version of a dune buggy. This is how he and Pebbles got around town for their dates out. His interest in automobiles led him to become a mechanic; however, he had other career interests as well.
The love birds grew up and ultimately tied the knot in Rock Vegas where Pebbles’ parents were married. Their reason for moving to Hollyrock was so Bamm-Bamm could pursue his true goal of becoming a screenwriter.
Pebbles, Bamm-Bamm, and their children Chip and Roxy lived happily ever after!
