Wilma and Betty use a subliminal "sleep-teaching" method to brainwash their husbands Fred and Barney into doing everything they're told to do. Unaware of what the girls are up to, the boys suddenly find that they are eager and willing to perform mundane household chores and to hand over their weekly paychecks to their spouses. Inevitably, Wilma and Betty feel guilty for manipulating their husbands--but before the situation is played out, both the Flintstones and the Rubbles end up in jail! The final scene, in which an understanding judge imposes a lighthearted punishment on the errant wives, may not play well with contemporary feminists!
