Roll-’Em, Action! Classic Movie Cartoon Tribute!
Although Cary Grant did not do the voice acting for his cartoon debut in The Flintstones, I guess you could still say that he still was ‘immortalized in stone’ — as Hollyrock Matinee Idol, Gary Granite — in The Flintstones’ episode “Monster from the Tar Pits” (Season 1, Episode 6, Nov 4, 1940).
FYI: The voice acting was performed by Bob Hopkins, who appeared in about 60 film & TV roles, mostly in uncredited and bit parts.
Director: Now Gary, in this scene you are climbing the cliff and at the top is Rock Pile (actor) with the girl you love, but you are having a little trouble because Rock Pile is dropping boulders on your head…Prop Man? Did you get the fake boulder?…Never mind, we’ll use real ones…Mr. Flintstone!…
