Many members of my generation grew up watching the daily lives of the cartoon residents of Bedrock. Though the Flintstones characters lived in the Town of Bedrock, there are a number of actual cities and towns whose name could have easily “filled in” (bad pun) for Bedrock.  For a little fun today, these “yabba-dabba-do” places include the following (partial list):

  • Basalt, Colorado
