The remake of the classic cartoon is due to air in 2013

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has said that his remake of The Flintstones will be similar in tone to The Simpsons of the mid-1990s.

Speaking at the South by Southwest event A Conversation With Seth MacFarlane, he said the cartoon will be kept "more or less the same", but that the cultural references will be updated. The AV Club reports that MacFarlane said: We're kind of shooting for the level of edge in mid-'90s Simpsons—you're not going to see abortion jokes.

He added: "We're trying to, essentially, stay true to what that show is. There's something cool to me about, in 2013, turning on your TV and seeing The Flintstones and having it look like The Flintstones... We kinda want to keep it, more or less, the same. The stories that we tell will be a little more current."

The pilot for the new show is still being written. MacFarlane later spoke to the Huffington Post about the new series of the show, saying: "It's like being handed the keys to a very old expensive car. You want to be careful not to be Ferris Bueller with it."
