The Flintstones: The Complete Series is on sale for just $40.99 with free shipping right now, down from the retail price of $120 at Amazon Canada.
Here is a price-comparing composite to show you what other retailers are selling The Flintstones Collection for:
- $84 @ Chapters Indigo Canada
- $74.99 @ HMV Canada (in-store only)
Future Shop and Best Buy do not sell the collection; rather they have individual seasons for $39.99. Walmart also has individual seasons for $39.46. I checked out the individual seasons on Amazon - and most of them are on sale for just $14.99 each. However, this collection is still a far better deal as there are six seasons. If you paid the individual price per season, it would cost you $89.94 in total.
This box set is all kinds of awesome. You get 24 disks of fantastic and memorable cartoons. While The Flintstones is a classic cartoon that ran before my time, I have watched a ton of reruns on Teletoon Retro. It is one of my favourite older cartoons to watch, along with Scooby-Doo and The Jetsons. I especially like when they have kids and Fred is always loosing Pebble. That time he took her to a boxing match was just priceless.
I did a little research and you get 166 episodes with all six seasons. That is an incredible amount of cartoon watching time for just $41. Reviewers are very happy with the box set and leave pleased comments like this one:
Absolutely great product! My only complaint (and it's very minor) is that it is very hard to pull the CD's from their covers and the last thing that I want to do is rip the booklet that they came it. The overall quality of the CD's are fabulous; clear and crisp on the TV. I would definitely buy this again!
Another benefit to getting the box set over individual seasons (besides price) is the cool box that the collection comes in. At first, I thought it was a Flintstone-esque transistor radio, but I actually think it is a stone-age television after getting a better look at it. What do you think?
Either was this is a fantastic series at a great price. You will not find this cheaper anywhere else. As the box set costs over $25, you will receive free shipping. Amazon Canada is still saying it will "Arrive before Christmas" if you order now.
