Easter Island has been discovered to be the actual location of the town of Bedrock, long thought to be fictional, according to new archaeological evidence to be presented in a forthcoming documentary by James Cameron.
For generations the mystery of the Easter Island statues has baffled archaeologists and social historians alike. Cameron claims the statues are actual likenesses of well loved characters such as Cary Granite, Stony Curtis, Rock Hudstone and Perry Masonry. He also maintains that the stone from which the statues are carved was excavated from the very quarry where Fred Flintstone worked. Further supporting evidence includes a clam shell housing a dead bumble-bee, which he is convinced is Fred's electric razor.
'It proves the Flintstones actually existed. They were real people," Cameron will assert in the documentary, due to go out over the Easter holiday weekend to capitalize on the discovery's location.
Fans are furious that a Hollywood moviemaker should be casting doubt on their deeply held belief that the Flintones are imaginary characters, distorting convictions they have held for almost five decades.
"Yabba Dabba Doodie" will air on the Discovery Channel Easter Sunday.
