Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm



No other comics remind me of summer holidays more than Charlton's, mainly 'cos that was the only time you could get them. Didn't matter where you went in the UK, every holiday place had a newsagents with a spinner rack crammed with Hong Kong Phooey, Top Cat, Magilla Gorilla or this Flintstones spin-off Teen-Age Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm.
Don't think I ever actually saw the cartoon, but definitely read the comic on the beach. It's light, bright fun for sunny days, and comes complete with the groovy teen slang of the time. C'mon, let's make the scene.

  2. Oh yeh, we've had the Flintstones here regularly since the '70's, Charlie, but I don't think Pebbles & Bamm-Bamm so much. Tho' I do now remember Bamm-Bamm's dialogue now you mention it, so I must have seen it.
