A common gripe amongst creatives, especially in the wake of Battleship The Movie, is that the Entertainment Industrial Complex is afraid of engaging with new intellectual properties.
While that is likely true, the video below does a fantastic job of tracing the history of the Flintstones franchise as it drifted into and out of favor, was adapted, chopped up, readapted, spun off, chopped again and then had spinoffs respun off over the past forty years.
So, while Hollywood et al., might be afraid of new ideas, that fear clearly is not a new phenomena.
Also, holy shit, is that more than you ever wanted to know about one modern stone age family?
