Seth MacFarlane's Flintstones Reboot Is Dead Because It Would Have Basically Just Been Family Guy

First announced in 2011, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane's Flintstones reboot was already considered "on life support" just a year later. But in a recent Reddit AMA, MacFarlane revealed the reason why he couldn't get the reboot off the ground: he simply couldn't differentiate Fred Flintstone from Family Guy's Peter Griffin.

Of course, being unable to do anything but basically make more Family Guy hasn't stopped MacFarlane from making American Dad, The Cleveland Show, Ted, Ted 2, A Million Ways To Die In The West, or The Orville. But when it came to rebooting The Flintstones, it seems, it was a Family Guy too far.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
