MMDE: The Flinstones

Current: The Flintstones

So everyone over a certain age knows and loves the Flintstones - but does everyone call Fred, Wilma, Barney and the gang "The Flintstones" or "The Flinstones" with a missing "t"? Those experiencing the Mass Memory Discrepancy Effect see the latter.

There is always the danger of a straightforward misreading of these type of situations. There is a clear reason for the spelling with the "t" included in this case - the show is about cavemen, who used flint stones. Those who didn't make that connection might also have not paid attention to the actual spelling, and so only think something is different now they actually concentrate on it.

Various reports vary from those who "definitley" remember it without the "t" to those who claim it has switched back and forwards between the two.
