Code cracked: CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM is the bizarro FLINTSTONES...

After millions of years of evolution, "The Flintstones" evolves into "Curb Your Enthusiasm"....basically, a contemporary version of Fred and Barney getting in trouble while hiding stuff from their wives.

The big difference superficially is that "Curb" is a world where Barney is the star and Fred is the sidekick. Also, Barney is married to Wilma while Fred is married to Betty. It's the bizarro "Flinstones!"

(I guess I should acknowledge in passing the fact that "The Flintstones" was inspired by "The Honeymooners" but I refuse to acknowledge it in passing...)
