Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm (Harvey) + Pebbles Flintstone

Pebbles Flintstone

Genre: Comedy

The Flintstones was a highly successful TV show and comic book and in 1963, Fred and Wilma birthed a daughter and named her Pebbles. Pebbles soon became the star of the show and the comic book and this one-shot reprints her first comic book appearance. Strangely, despite the popularity of Pebbles, there was never a second issue, although there was another one-shot called Bamm-Bamm and Pebbles Flintstones in 1964, and of course a later series both on TV and in comic books of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm after they became teenagers.

Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm (Harvey)

Genre: Comedy

Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm originated in separate episodes of the original primetime Flintstones series. Pebbles was Fred and Wilma's natural born child and Bamm-Bamm was left on Barney and Betty Rubble's doorstep. The Rubble's soon adopted him shortly thereafter. Years later, after the cancellation of The Flintstones, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm grew up, became teenagers, fell in love, started their own rock band, and starred in their own TV show. They also got their own comic book series published by Charlton, of which this Harvey series reprints from along with new covers drawn by Scott Shaw!
