Teen idol James Darren supplies the singing voice (but not, surprisingly the speaking voice!) for his cartoon counterpart "Jimmy Darrock" in this lampoon of the "Beach Party" movies of the 1960s. When the local beach is invaded by surfing teenagers, Fred becomes fascinated with the sport. Unfortunately, Fred's enthusiasm far outdistances his surfing skills, and he must rely upon Jimmy Darrock, a movie star posing as a lifeguard, to keep him from going down for the third time. James Darren sings "Surfin' Craze", a marvelous quasi-Beach Boys tune composed by P.F. Sloan and Steve Barri, in this final episode of The Flintstones' fifth season.
