The Flintstones – Kleptomania Caper

There sure isn't any place in here Hey, why don't you give yourself up? Aha! Here, here, Barney

Slip this on Gee, I always wanted a head like this Hey, how do I look? (Fred) 'It's an improvement' Hey, you look pretty good yourself [chuckling] Alright, alright, at least no one will recognize us

Here comes the detective We're trapped Not yet, just act natural Say, either of you see a couple of kookie lookin' guys come in here? Uh, yeah, they went that way Thanks, ain't nobody's gonna gimme the slip

[instrumental music] preee [siren wailing] preee screech [music continues] screech vroom bam thud Betty, are you up here? (Betty) 'Over here, Wilma' My, you're up early this morning Is that your stuff for the rummage sale? Uh, huh Phew, that's heavy How are you doing? Umm, I don't know where to start

Barney saved everything from his first teething ring Look here "Pledge Rubble Beta Slata Gamma Class of 1,000,020" (Wilma) 'What's it for?' Whacko A souvenir from Barney's high school fraternity

Our closet's so crowded with stuff like this a flea couldn't get in if he made reservations I know what you mean Look Wilma, that's Fred's old football uniform How'd you ever get him to part with it? Simple, I merely use feminine strategy

What do you mean? – I didn't tell him – Oh, Wilma What he doesn't know won't make him mad Oh but, Wilma, that's sneaky That's dishonest

That's brilliant [chuckling] How are you gonna get away with it? 'Easy' Show me a closet filled with souvenirs and I'll show you a man who's forgotten he ever had 'em – You really think so? – I know so For weeks I've been taking things from our closet and bringing them down to the ladies auxiliary rummage sale

Fred never missed one thing Well, alright Here goes nothing Say, this will be fun Good, girl

From now on it'll be easy Okay, Wilma, coast is clear Where's Barney? In back of the house doing some gardening Put the boxes on the floor in the back seat Say, before we take this stuff downtown let's have some breakfast

Okay, that's uh, um Why are we whispering? I don't know [chuckling] [yawning] Wilmawhere, where's my breakfast? What's this? "Dear, Fred, gone to Betty's Your breakfast is on the table Back soon" Hey! This is Saturday

I can watch the big football game, while I eat (male announcer on TV) 'And now, a word from our sponsor' Aah, well, I get this real heavy beard, see? And it used to be kind of a drag like Until I discovered, flint ridge razors Now I'm not only a star athlete I got this here, cave-man appeal

(male announcer on TV) 'Alright, ladies and gentlemen' 'Back to your football game of the week' 'They're out of the huddle into a split tee' 'Rockhouse Keys fading back, back' 'Looks like he's gonna pass

' 'Yes, looks like it'll be a long one' 'And there it goes, way downfield and' crash Receive by Brunately A beautiful pass

[laughing] Naturally I threw it What a game, ladies and gentlemen What excitement Alright

Out of the huddle, single wing formation 'It's Brunately to Rockowski 'Rockowski has the ball' 'Look at him go' 'He's over the end-zone for a touchdown

' crash 'Gee, Rockowski has done it again' That magic number 22 has won 87 yards for a touchdown And now for the halftime activities How do you like that? 22 My old number

What a game Hey, I think I'll put on my jersey for the second half 'It's right here in the closet' Wait a minute, where is it? Where'd it go? My football uniform's gone My helmet, my hockey stick

Even my junior frog band's swim fins That does it Somethin' fishy is goin' on here Now think, Flintstone Think

Nothing's in the under closet except Wilma's junk Nothing in the garage because Wilma made me clean out that junk last week All the important junk was in this closet Wilma! Do I know where your football uniform is? Goodness, Fred, d-don't you? Sneaky I can't imagine what you could've done with it? Very sneaky

Didn't you throw it away years ago? [Fred yelling on the phone] About your feminine strategy Don't look now, but I think it backfired Yes, Fred Bye (Betty) 'Well, you gonna take the stuff back?' I can't now

Fred would never speak to me again We gotta get everything down to the rummage sale before we get caught with it But the car isn't here Barney took it to run an errand Oh, no

All that stuff's in it Suppose he sees it? Calm down, Wilma It's on the floor in the back He won't notice Gee, Betty

I've never deceived Fred before I feel just terrible Well we can't do anything about it now So relax Fred'll probably forget all about it

Well it took you long enough to get here I called over half an hour ago The closet's over there I'm a tax payer, I've been robbed, I want action Uh-huh, yeah

Uh-huh, just as I thought – What, what? – Inside job Funny though Funny? Heh! I'm hysterical Now who took my stuff? It's not the work of a professional

A pro wouldn't take the junk you described – Now wait a min – I got it It's the work of a kleptomaniac

– Typical case – A klepto, who? Kleptomaniac Someone with a compulsion to steal One of your friends is sick, Mr Flintstone

– Real sick – Hold it Are you tryin' to say someone I know is a thief? The criminal had free access to this house and he took stuff no one would want in his right mind Yeah, you got a point there Hey, wait a minute

No question about it Typical case Now you must be kiddin' I don't know anyone like that You'll never know until they strike

These guys go along perfectly normal for years and then one day, whamo! Start to steal, can't control themselves We see a lot of it screech Hiya, Fred Can I borrow your hedge trimmer? Why, sure, Barney boy Help yourself

It's in the garage (Barney) 'Oh, thank you' [whistling] It won't take us long to crack this case, Mr Flintstone Kleptomaniac's aren't your typical thieves

– They always get caught – How come? It's part of the sickness They wanna get caught and go to prison Why I seen 'em steal stuff from a guy and drive right by his house with the goods in his car – No kiddin'

– Sure Give you an example Now, let's say, this was yours A kleptomaniac wouldn't think twice about drivin' right by your house and Hey, wait a minute Orange jersey White dots, number 22 This is yours In Barney's car? It can't be

Flintstone, I think we've caught our thief Uh, ho-ho-hold it There, there, there, there, there's a mistake I didn't say orange with white dots I-I saidwhite with orange dots I Well then, how about this? Look familiar? I-I-I never seen it before

Who took what from behind who's back without telling who? Huh? Who, huh? Who? You're right, Fred This whole thing is my fault And I'm just as sorry as I can be Will you ever forgive me? I don't know I promise I'll never take anything of yours without telling you again, okay? That still doesn't get my stuff back

Oh yes it does We never got to the rummage sale Tell him, Wilma On our way, we stopped at Mrs Rockheads for tea

And she was packing up old stuff of Joe's (Wilma) 'To give away without telling him' (Betty) 'And we both got this awful attack of conscience' (Wilma) 'We couldn't go through with–' Hold it, hold it! I'm gettin' sea sick Get to the point

Oh, you've made a mistake I can explain Ah, come on I'll show you You see, these things belong to my husband

Brace yourself, Wilma You took the wrong box Oh, no! Well, let's hear the explanation Gee, I don't know where to start – I'll give it to you

– But you'll never believe it You see, officer, the "Ladies Auxiliary" 'was having this rummage sale' Sounds pretty fishy to me And her husband, had all this junk he wouldn't throw away And so I took it without telling him

I wouldn't believe that story if I saw it on television (Betty) 'But for some reason, Fred thought Barney–' (Wilma) 'Was a kleptomaniac And he was–' Hold it, hold it One at a time I'm getting dizzy

And he was tryin' to get Barney to return everything Honestly, officer, she's tellin' the truth [laughing] [theme music] boing [yawning] [music continues] clink thud slam rattle rattle Wilma! bang bang bang 'Wilma!' 'Come on, Wilma Open this door' 'Wilma!'
