Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Fred and Barney combine their money and their labor to build a swimming pool in Fred's backyard. As it turns out, Barney monopolizes the pool with his circle of friends, prompting Fred to take drastic action in order to get in some swimming himself. Hiring his pal Charlie to pose as a cop, Fred tells Charlie to break up Barney's latest pool party and charge him with "disturbing the peace"--but it is Fred who gets in the neck when the real cops arrive. Though telecast as the third episode of The Flinstones, "The Swimming Pool" was the first one to be filmed; in fact, it is an expansion of the original four-minute test film for "The Flagstones", the series' original title.
