Voice of Fred Flintstone died
Filed under: Media
TV Squad reported Friday that Henry Corden, the voice of Fred Flintstone for more than two decades, died at the age of 85 from emphysema. He was actually Fred's second voice. Alan Reed was the voice of Fred Flintstone in the original TV show which debuted in 1960 and continued to voice him until his death in '77.
Corden's longtime agent Don Pitts said that since "The Flintstones" echoed "The Honeymooners," Corden tweaked his voice to approximate Jackie Gleason's Ralph Kramden. Corden can most recently be heard on the Cocoa Pebbles commercial airing now yelling, "Barney, my Pebbles!"
