The Flintstones, developed by Foley Hi-Tech, and planned to be published by Ocean Software (however,this never happened), is a Sega Mega Drive game based on the 1994 live-action The Flintstones film. This game, unrelated to an identically named release by Taito, is infamous for not receiving a physical cartridge release, instead being a Sega Channel exclusive available to North American consumers for a brief period of time. Surviving prototypes are known to exist, but the full game has not been seen since 1995.

A Super Nintendo version of the game was released in cartridge form in February 1995, exclusive to North America. The Mega Drive version, presumed to be largely identical, is a seven stage platform game in which players control Fred Flintstone attempting to save a captured Pebbles and Bam-Bam.

In Europe the game was set to be published by Sony Electronic Publishing, having also appeared at their stand at ECTS Autumn 1994[2]. In North America, it was given a tentative release date of November 1994More...[3], then DecemberMore...[4], while an Australian release was planned for May 1995Media:NewReleasesCatalogueApril-May1995AU.pdf[5].
