Where does Barney work?
In the Flintstone cartoon, were did Barney work? And
it wasn't with Fred. He rode with him everyday but never arrived with
kaisbro gave us his thoughts on the situation:
At first, it appears that Barney may work at the
quarry with Fred, since he bowls on the quarry's bowling team ("The
Flintstone Flyer"). The exact nature of Barney's next job is
unknown, but Fred inadvertenly gets him fired from it in "No Help
Wanted," the 6th episode produced. (Fred explains that he told
Barney to "put his broom down"; Barney later remarks that "it wasn't
much of a job"). Fred then helps Barney secure a job as a furniture
repossessor, but this career is never mentioned again and appears to
have been brief. Other temporary positions include travel agent,
co-owner (with Fred) of "The Drive-In," and (again, with Fred)
David K as always helped us solve the mystery:
The TV cartoon probably didn't want to show you the
seedier side of Bedrock, so you never saw Barney working as a drug
dealer, selling rock cocaine, among others......
Actually, in later episodes of the series, he DID work with Fred,
but before that, he held various odd jobs, sort of like Cosmo Kramer
of Seinfeld. I believe he was a furniture reposessor for a short
period of time, and was actually a geological engineer in one
amanda simply answered this:
In the film the flintstones barney does work in the
same place as fred. I know this because they both done the same test
to see if they got the office job
Commodore-SirJohn summed it up with this:
While it was never definitively established where
Barney Rubble worked, the general consensus was that he also worked
at Slate & Co. with Fred (though in another part of the quarry, as
we did see some scenes in the locker room in which they both
appeared, but never in the quarry itself).
This was made "canon" in the live-action Flintstones movie of 1994.
