Why Seth MacFarlane Is The Wrong Choice To Reboot The Flintstones

144 Comments

I doubt that I’m the only person who recoils in something close to horror at the news that Seth MacFarlane is going to reboot The Flintstones for Fox. It’s not just the lazy thinking on behalf of the execs who greenlit the idea (“Hey! It’s a name people know, and we’ve got this guy who already makes cartoons for us!”), it’s a complete misunderstanding of what makes MacFarlane’s work and The Flintstones work. Can any good come of this?
