No matter how inadequate a husband Fred is, Wilma always puts up with his guff. But every time Wilma tries to demonstrate her sheer brilliance at everything, Fred shoots her down like a wild pterodactyl. She was running a business big enough that she could have easily participated in the financial upbringing of her grandchildren and she was doing it on her own.
The character of Wilma was not only tasked with being an afterthought to her neanderthal husband, but she was also made to be seen by the whole world indisposed with this doofus.
The horror of Misses Slaghoople's baby girl being paraded around in her skivvies in front of the entire television-watching world must have been a lot to bear. I recognize that this woman is a cartoon, but it is a lot for one character to shoulder when it is written for her to be an afterthought and now she has to let the cameras into the bedroom.
How embarrassing do you think that would be for his wife? Not only was Fred, who was lying about having a high school degree, told he was going to be fired if he didn't go back and finish high school, but, on top of that, the middle-aged man even had time to become popular while he was fixing his worthless life. Not only did poor Wilma have to put up with the fact that her husband is a giant fool, he also lied to her about it.
Fred, in his infinite wisdom, decided to tell his always loving and caring wife that he was being considered for a promotion and would have to attend executive school.
Naturally, Wilma, being a saint, believed him. So to be fair, it is kind of her fault for believing anyone would turn her foolish husband into an executive of anything. So, once again, Wilma is made the laughingstock of Bedrock by her husband and this time she doesn't even know why. It's hard to believe a gem like Wilma has stayed with this buffoon for more than years.
But it can't be any picnic to live in a pre-historic household that has a different decor in every single episode. This jab goes a little deeper though.
Nobody watching would ever mistake any of The Flintstones home decor for being Fred's brainchild, so without her even doing anything, it would have become a place where Wilma Flintstone's brilliance could shine through. Alas, literally nobody involved in the show cared about Wilma and the decor, which is why it was just what the illustrator pleased on any given episode.
It's not the worst fate of any cartoon mom, but it certainly isn't a great one because there was just no iconic backdrop with which to place the popular comic strip. This could have affected Wilma's likability, merchandise sales and who knows what else. To be fair though, they can't be doing that bad, if we are still talking about their creation nearly years later. He has a job even though he has no discernible skills, he has a home even though he is terrible with money, and he has a gorgeous wife and beautiful family, even though he is kind of a jerk.
Slate down at the rock quarry tells him too.

Now I realize that a request from a spouse is a little different than a command from a superior at work. However, given the fact that when it comes to Wilma, Fred is an undeserving amoeba, he should have acquiesced when his wife asked him to do something charitable. Everything worked out in the end, as the kids got their stocky Santa Fred and Wilma's husband came through in the clutch. But wouldn't it have been nice if he would have done it just for his doting wife and not because his boss Mr.
Slate made him Yabba Dabba Do it? Naturally, Fred wasn't going to take the honor of starring in the town's Christmas play lightly, so he immediately started acting like a prima donna. Then real disaster struck and several of the Bedrock players were struck with the "Bedrock Bug," and the only person who knew their roles well enough to step in was, of course, Wilma. So with a husband acting like a jerk and a show full of sick actors, Wilma stepped up and made the show amazing by taking on all of the sick actors roles and maintaining her stage managerial responsibilities.
All while teaching her selfish husband Fred the real meaning of Christmas. By the end of the show, the town was entertained and Fred realized that Christmas is really about friends and family, not about who stars in the town's Christmas show. Not bad for a woman juggling motherhood, a job, and a foolish husband. With Fred and Wilma's marriage on the rocks, advertising executive Pebbles and auto mechanic Bam Bam decided to tie the knot.
A foolish Fred Flintstone decides to bet the farm on a get-rich-quick real estate scheme that winds up backfiring, so he loses all the money earmarked for his daughter's wedding. When Wilma figures out what happened, her and Fred fight so badly that Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm decide to skip town for Vegas to get married in relative peace. Fred and Barney follow their kids to the desert to try and talk some sense into them and, in the process, Barney wins enough money to cover the original wedding.
But then, in classic Fred fashion, he blows that money chasing the white elephant.
It's crazy what Hanna-Barbera ask poor Wilma to put up with. Fred, Wilma, Barney, and Betty won a contest for a free vacation to Dr. The couples eventually end up cornered inside the Rubbles' room. Fred challenges Rockula to a fight, using a bat statuette as a weapon, but the statuette turns out to actually be the switch for the trapdoor to Rockula's laboratory, which Rockula and Frankenstone were unknowingly standing on.
As Fred raises the statuette to strike, both Rockula and Frankenstone fall through the trapdoor, and the Flintstones and Rubbles escape and return to Bedrock. Wilma invites Betty and Barney to stay for dinner and leaves the three of them in the living room while she goes into the kitchen to cook.
Unbeknownst to them, Rockula has flown in the form of a bat all the way from Rocksylvania to Bedrock. Flying through the kitchen window, he begs Wilma to marry him, promising her a life of luxury if she agrees. Winking at Fred, Barney and Betty watching surreptitiously from the doorwayWilma agrees to consider marrying Rockula, then immediately begins nagging him about chores, upkeep of the house, and his bad habits.
Aghast, Rockula apparently forgetting that most chores would be left to the servants changes back into a bat and flies off, claiming to need another years of rest. Barney laughs and lauds Wilma for defeating Rockula by telling him "the real truth about married life".
Rockula and Frankenstone[ edit ] Count Rockula: Having been asleep for five hundred years, Rockula is awoken by Frankenstone and sets out to clear his castle of the guests and take Wilma, whom he thinks is his bride, for himself, even if it means killing Fred. Count Rockula also appears in the episodes "Blood Brothers" and "Fred and Barney Meet the Frankenstones" of The New Fred and Barney Show, again voiced by Stephenson, albeit in a completely different continuity because Rockula then has a bride, slightly different garments, and a pet werewolf despite having a fear for them in this movie.
