Continuing with our weekly inductions into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame during 2009 to celebrate the Hall's tenth anniversary, this week we're offering up our January selection from the Tooniverse. And since January is dedicated to Classic TV, and since it's hard to think of one from the other, we're inducting both Fred Flintstone and his best buddy, Barney Rubble.

Here's just a partial reason as to why they so deserve this honor:
'The Flintstones'
Commercials for Pebbles cereal
Commercials for Flintstones vitamins
Commercial for Winston cigarettes
Flintstones: On the Rocks, The (2001)
"Flintstone Comedy Show, The" (1980)
"Flintstones Comedy Hour, The" (1972)
"Fred Flintstone and Friends" (1977)
"Fred and Barney Meet the Shmoo" (1979)
"Fred and Barney Meet the Thing" (1979)
"New Fred and Barney Show, The" (1979)
Flintstone Christmas, A (1977)
Flintstones Christmas Carol, A (1994)
Flintstones Christmas in Bedrock, The (1996)
Flintstones Family Christmas, A (1993)
Flintstones Little Big League, The (1979)
Flintstones Meet Rockula and Frankenstone, The (1979)
Flintstones' New Neighbors, The (1980)
Flintstones: Fred's Final Fling, The (1980)
Flintstones: Jogging Fever, The (1981)
Hollyrock-a-Bye Baby (1993)
I Yabba-Dabba Do! (1993)
Jetsons Meet the Flintstones, The (1987)
Yogi Bear's All-Star Comedy Christmas Caper (1982)
I know. They should have been inducted a long time ago.

Fred's daughter Pebbles joined the Hall of Fame during 2000, the Year of the Woman. And someday their spouses Wilma and Betty - and probably Bamm Bamm Rubble as well - will join them as well.
