Hanna-Barbera claimed "The Flintstones" was loosely modeled on which sitcom?

Answer:

The Honeymooners

The idea of making “The Flintstones,” a cartoon that Joseph Barbera admitted was based loosely on the TV comedy “The Honeymooners,” came after marketing experts discovered the audience for cartoons in the late ‘50s was more than 50% adults. Since the show's inception, people have noted the similarities between The Flintstones and The Honeymooners. To put it simply, the Flintstones and the Rubbles are the stone-age equivalents of the Kramdens and the Nortons. Jackie Gleason even considered suing Hanna and Barbera for ripping off his show, but ultimately decided he did not want to go down in history as "the guy who yanked Fred Flintstone off the air".
