Now this is worthy of shouting “Yabba-dabba doo” from the domed rooftops. After years of fighting for the right to turn her home into a shrine to Fred Flintstone and his merry band of family and friends, this woman has finally won.

Florence Fang’s quirky property – complete with a collection of giant dinosaurs; oversized mushrooms; and life-sized statues of Fred, Wilma, Barney and Betty Rubble – is her pride and joy.

Also filling the yard are an astronaut, a moon rover, a spaceship and The Great Gazoo – the name of the alien who crashed to Earth during the final season of the hit 1960s cartoon show. A giraffe, a woolly mammoth, Bigfoot, a few ornamental pigs and a rainbow complete the wacky wonderland.
