Yabba-Dabba Dinosaurs is an American animated[1][2][3] streaming television[4] series and a spin-off of the original series, The Flintstones. Like Cave Kids, the series focuses on the lives of best friends Pebbles Flintstone and Bamm-Bamm Rubble, who are joined by Dino for many adventures in the Stone Age.[5] The series premiered on HBO Max on September 30, 2021.[6]

This is the first full-length Flintstones TV series in 19 years since The Rubbles and the first since the closure of the Hanna-Barbera studio and also the first Flintstones TV series without the original creators William Hanna and Joseph Barbera who both died respectively in 2001 and 2006.
