This is a lunchbox for the animated TV series spin-off (of THE FLINTSTONES), PEBBLES AND BAMM-BAMM, dated 1971. Note how the hippy culture plays a role in the content of this show, including the Bedrock music festival which obviously is supposed to evoke a prehistoric version of Woodstock. The voices for the now teenaged Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm were provided by Sally Struthers (playing another hippy on ALL IN THE FAMILY) and Jay North, the actor who played DENNIS THE MENACE before succumbing to the inevitable washed-up-child-star-spiraling-downward trend.

    I never watched Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm though I thought that Bamm-Bamm was one of the greatest names ever. I also never knew that Sally Struthers was the voice of the teenaged Pebbles.

    I love anything that has a hippie edge to it, especially if it was something made in those immediate post-Woodstock years that had absolutely nothing to do with the hippie culture itself yet still found it necessary to lean on something that was that popular.

    I’ve always loved in cartoons when people played animal’s teeth as keyboards.
