Casting

Many voice actors in the series reprise their roles from other media. Frank Welker and B. J. Ward reprise their roles as Barney and Betty Rubble for the first time since 1994, while the characters Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Rubble are voiced by Megan Mullally and Jerry Houser, reprising their roles from the specials I Yabba-Dabba Do!, Hollyrock-a-Bye Baby, and A Flintstone Family Christmas, all released in 1993. John Stephenson reprises his role as Mr. Slate from the original series, the only original cast member to do so apart from the late Mel Blanc, whose archival recordings from various projects are used for the character Dino. Candi Milo voices Fred and Wilma's adopted son Stony due to the retirement of his original voice actor, Christine Cavanaugh, from voice acting in 2002 and her subsequent death in 2014.
