THE OLIVER FACTOR
The Flintstones

The Oliver Factor: The Great Gazoo
Played by: Harvey Korman
The Flintstones was one of those shows that almost made it without an Oliver Factor.  It lasted through Pebbles and Bam Bam being added to the cast.  It also made it through some of the voices changing on the characters.  But then, he came...The Great Gazoo.

He could only be seen by Fred and Barney and of course us.  We hated this little green snot.  He had no place in Bedrock.  We would rather sit through The second Flintstones live action movie with the least famous Baldwin brother, than to have to see Gazoo again.

The Flintstones was a classic show.  It was the cartoon version of The Honeymooners and just as good.  Who could forget the classic "The Flintstones meet the Jetsons".  Why oh why would they forever tarnish this show with that little green bastard.

Harvey Korman voiced the character of Gazoo.  He has had an amazing career, most notably on The Carol Burnett Show.
