PROPS: The Flintstones (1994) - Sports Excavated
The Flintstones (1994) had some of the most creative people in the industry working on the film. Well of course, the film had Russell Bobbitt as the property master (he later went on to do a lot of the superhero movies, along with the sequel to The Flintstones). The attention to detail with all the props/costumes is gorgeous. To make everything look like the cartoon and to make it look like it was carved out of stone, just simply gorgeous. What was up for auction at NateDSanders were a pair of pictorial tablets. They are a comedic stone age periodical, titled “Sports Excavated”, with headlines reading “The Spear, The New Wave in Fishing" and a brief, illustrated "article" on cliff diving.
“These tablets are custom crafted of carved foam and painted in blue and tan. Each measures 11" x 15". Bound together with twine. Some cracking and abrasions to surface, else near fine.”
It was up for bid on 12/17/2013 with NateDSanders auction.
