It's a scene you can imagine from any family beach trip, as we watch Pebbles bury her dad Fred in the sand in the Flintstones episode "Royal Rubble. The first laugh comes when Pebbles crawls away, leaving Fred helpless under the weight of the sand.

Dutifully, Wilma appears, taking in this scene where her husband needs her help. Then she notices Fred's feet are sticking out of the sand, and the next knowing laugh arrives for the audience. Anyone who's ever been attacked by some variant of "the tickle monster" can understand Fred's anguish, but for Flintstones fans, something might have felt a little off about the caveman's feet being so sensitive to tickling.

After all, throughout the cartoon, we watched Fred use his own feet as brakes to stop his car from hurtling forward. Many times, we watched Fred lift his feet to show their blackened bottoms, with smoke wafting off them from the flames generated slamming his feet against the road. How could a caveman's feet be calloused enough to serve as brakes but not hardened enough to steel against Wilma's playful tickling? Even though we spend all our time walking around on our feet, they remain the most sensitive part of the human body, with thousands of nerve endings existing extremely close to the exterior of the skin.

Our feet are basically built so that no matter how tough the skin gets, most of us will be at the mercy of the tickle monster no matter what.

For our brains, this kind of tickling is extremely confusing. So next time you hear a kid begging the tickle monster to stop, you should know the panic of the experience can feel real, which is why it's extra-funny to see Fred hollering at Wilma in this situation, as we're very used to hearing him shout out her name to boss her around, not be at her mercy. In case you were wondering, there have been many delightfully nerdy scientists who have tried to understand the science of whether it's possible for Fred Flintstone to have used his feet as his car brakes.

That's not too bad considering his bunions are brake p. Speaking of bunions, did you know that there's Ticklish feet stories actual medical condition known as "Flintstone Ticklish feet stories Very generally speaking, "Flintstone feet" in podiatry refers to issues connected to having very flat feet.
