Jogging Fever is a 1981 animated television special and the fourth and final of The Flintstone Special limited-run prime time revival of The Flintstones produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions which premiered on NBC on October 11, 1981.[1]

Jogging Fever was animated at Filman, an animation studio in Madrid, Spain (headed by Carlos Alfonso and Juan Pina) who did a lot of animation work for Hanna-Barbera between the early 1970s through the mid-1980s. This was also notable for being the final television special to feature Hanna-Barbera's controversial studio-made laugh track, which was used throughout the 1970s.


After failing his annual physical, Fred wants to prove to everyone (including his boss Mr. Slate) that he is in shape, so he decides to become the first citizen of Bedrock to enter the Rockstone Marathon. He wants to become a local celebrity.
