Celebrated composer Hoagy Carmichael supplies the voice for his animated likeness in this first episode of The Flintstones' second season. Once again dreaming of overnight wealth and success, Fred and Barney go into the songwriting business. Since neither of our heroes can tell one note from another, they hire a fast-buck hack named "Scat" Von Roctoven to set their lyrics to music. Unfortunately, Von Roctoven has plagiarized a little ditty called "Stardust". . . In addition to "guesting" in this episode, Hoagy Carmichael also penned an original song for the occasion, "Yabba Dabba Doo." (Trivia note: The voice of Barney is provided by Daws Butler, who substituted for the ailing Mel Blanc).
