As you can see, this book, which was prepared just PRIOR to the television series debut, features an alternate world version of THE FLINTSTONES--Fred, Wilma, Fred Junior(!!) and their new pet Harvey (although he looks more like Cecil the sea-sick sea sepent on that final page!) with no trace of Barney, Betty, Dino or Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm(still several years away from their conceptions actually). I'm not certain whether Junior was originally planned for the TV series but if so, he was clearly sacked early on unwittingly preparing the way for Pebbly-Poo and one of the most anxiously awaited births in TV history. (Certainly, the Welch's people were waiting as I doubt Junior had the marketing appeal that sold all the jelly and grape juice that Pebbles would eventually sell!)
Mel Crawford did a considerable amount of the Little Golden Books, of which this was only one. Check out his site and do some searching on the Net and I'll bet you find out that he illustrated one of your favorites! This one was always MY favorite!
