Have you ever been watching a "Flintstones" cartoon and thought, "This would be much better with professional wrestlers?" Us neither. But we're getting it anyway.
WWE Studios has tag-teamed with Warner Bros. to co-produce a "Flintstones" direct-to-home-video animated movie, to be released on Blu-ray, DVD, VOD and digital download in early 2015, WWE Studios said on Wednesday.
WWE talent John Cena, CM Punk and others will join owner Vince McMahon to provide voices for the movie, which will see Fred, Barney and the gang attending a WWE match. Naturally, the wrestlers will play Bedrock versions of themselves, cutely named "John Cenastone," "CM Punkrock" and "Vince McMagma" respectively.
This is not the first time that WWE has infiltrated your old cartoons. The wrestling giant and Warner Bros. also have co-produced an animated "Scooby Doo" cartoon that will be released in March, just before Wrestlemania XXX. (That's "30," not porn. Though expect porn parodies. Just not from Warner Bros.)
“WWE is family-friendly entertainment, so partnering with Warner Bros. on a Flintstones/WWE project was a natural extension of our Scooby Doo deal,” Michael Luisi, president of WWE Studios said in a statement. “This new, animated feature allows us to showcase our brand with young fans and loyal Flintstones enthusiasts alike.”
