Wilma Flintstone (née Slaghoople, though in two episodes of the original series, her maiden name was given as "Pebble") is a character from the Hanna-Barbera animated television series The Flintstones. She is the wife of Fred Flintstone and the mother of Pebbles Flintstone.
Appearances in Christmas specials
- "Christmas Flintstone" - In the original series' Christmas episode, Wilma is skeptical when Fred tells her that he has gotten a second job at Macyrock's, saying that she is not unsure if she likes the idea of him working two jobs, but Fred explains it will only be for a week. Later, when Fred comes home from the department store in the Santa Claus suit, Wilma actually mistakes him for the real Santa and frantically starts decorating the Christmas tree before Fred explains that they made him the store's Santa. When Fred, as Santa, does a television interview, Wilma and Pebbles are seen watching Fred's interview. At the end of the episode, when Fred comes home after having filled in for the real Santa on Christmas Eve, Wilma, along with Barney and Betty, tells him that he did a fantastic job acting as Santa for them just now (not realizing that it was actually the real Santa bringing Fred's gifts to them).
- A Flintstones' Christmas Carol - The fourth Flintstones Christmas special produced (but the second one in chronological order) finds Wilma working as the stage manager for the Bedrock Community Theater. When Fred wins the part of Ebonezer Scrooge in their production of A Christmas Carol, Wilma is shown to be particularly frustrated with Fred having become so obsessed with the role that he's acting like Scrooge in real life too. She becomes even angrier with Fred when he fails to pick up Pebbles from daycare on the way to the theater and he claims that he was doing last-minute rehearsing (to cover up the fact that he was actually doing last-minute Christmas shopping for their gifts). During the play, Wilma ends up having to portray the roles of the Ghost of Christmas Past and Belle, due to the actresses who were supposed to play those characters having caught the Bedrock Bug. Seeing Wilma performing these characters brings Fred to start realizing how much of a jerk he has been to her and everyone else. Later, after the play is finished, Fred admits to Wilma that he finally realized during the performance how much his family and friends really mean to him. Wilma has a hard time believing that, but Fred offers to make it up to her by inviting her mother over for Christmas dinner.
