Recognizing Russell, the blonde French member of the New Humans, he kidnaps him and brings him to the palace. Unmasking before Russell, his face is now revealed to be that of Fred Flintstone.
- Fred Flintstone was originally intended to indeed have a son, but the idea was dropped before production began on the famous series.
