Y is for Yabba dabba doo!


I had a great time when I watched the movie The Flintstones ages ago. I love the humor, satire, visual comedy, and best of all the YABBA DABBA DOO! Can we hear it now, here?

I just love the sound of yabba dabba doo! Because it means that there is something worth celebrating. Something to be grateful about.

I have a treasure of yabba dabba doos that brought joy to my heart, tears to my happy eyes, and praises to God.

Let me share a few of them. My heart had a yabba dabba doo..

when the first word that my youngest daughter wrote was V I C T O R Y — she copied it on tithes envelope.

when my oldest daughter passed the scholarship — 200 of them out of more than 2,000 students.

when we found my daughter’s turtle after a week it escaped from the bowl — yup only a few feet away.

whenever my hubby plays with the kiddos.

when a day passed without my boys arguing.

when my blog friends are so nice to visit me even though I wasn’t able to visit them for a while.

when I hear a song that expresses how God loves me.

Yabba dabba doo moments can actually help us get going when our heart is much heavier than flintstones.

Yabba dabba doo moments can reinforce our hope that there is more things to come worth celebrating.

Tomorrow it’s Saturday — I got to watch my kiddos’ swimming lessons. Yabba dabba doo!

Could you please at least share one of your yabba dabba doo moments? Let’s celebrate it again!

  1. This put a needed smile on my face today. 😀 Thanks so much! I have been momentarily transported back to my childhood of watching mindless classic cartoons with little else to worry about then what Barney was going get into. Thanks for the smile!!!!!!

    I would not have thought of yabba dabba doo! I’m so glad you did! 🙂 You make my day shine and shimmer, precious Rea.
    Let’s see . . .a yabbadabbadoo moment . . .well, this is kinda of silly. But here it goes. We watched someone’s bunny over the winter, but took her back earlier this spring, in March. The bunny gets to run around the barn, free most of the time, and leery of anyone coming up to her for fear of getting put back in her cage. This week when we went for horse therapy time, Lily the bunny hopped up on the hay at the end of the arena. I went to see her and she didn’t run away, but let me pet her. 🙂
    love you! and thanks for getting me to say yabbadabbadoo again!

      That is truly a yabba dabba doo moment! Even a bunny couldn’t resist your love! I would like to think that someone blessed us because we have actually blessed someone, some time (could be the same being who blessed us or not). Your love is one of my yabba dabba doo Deb! Thank you so much, with love 🙂

    Often when the work day ends I say “yabba dabba doo!” and quickly stomp my feet on the ground. Just like when Fred leaves the quarry for the day! 🙂

    Oh and my yabba dabba do moments .. writing and reading makes the most number of them these days .. in real life, I think meeting my bro every fortnight is one 🙂
    He is a teenager and so i feel like m meeting a kid who is as much a nonsense as much adorable !

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Writing and reading — that is great because you can create your own yabba dabba doo moments then!

      I love to hear somebody whose yabba dabba doo moment is meeting a family — because I know someone who is actually running away from them. Blessings to you and your cool brother! 🙂

    Another enjoyable post 🙂

      My youngest daughter saw and heard for the first time The Flintstones here in my post and she had been chanting yabba dabba doo! I wonder if I’ll go crazy eventually, if she doesn’t stop. Thank you so much Nimue for smiling and sharing your thoughts 🙂

  7. Yabba dabba doo….every day since 97 and breast cancer diagnosis…waking up breathing is a yabba dabba doo moment!

  8. Rea, This post is Yabba dabba doo! Now I am singing the Flintstones theme in my head, and I didn’t even have to listen to your video. I just remember it from the Saturday morning cartoon when I was a kid. Your list of yabba dabba doo moments reminded me of one from a couple years ago – When we found our cat Tom after he had been missing for 16 days! He was trapped under the neighbor’s house when they completed a new front porch and boarded him in. He was 3 pounds skinnier but not dehydrated. And he has been the most loveable cat ever since (was just plain ornery before). When we found him we definitely felt Yabba dabba doo, plus Hallelujah (Praise the Lord), but that doesn’t start with Y. 😉 Peace, Linda

      Trapped under the neighbor’s house and claimed back again?! That is such a yabba dabba doo moment Linda! Looks like us humans, who were once trapped but saved — that is Hallelujah! And became more lovable too? Huggs and love to you Linda 🙂

      • Wow! I had never made that connection, but you are right. We were once trapped in our sin, trapped by the devil, and then we were rescued by Jesus and it makes us more loveable. 🙂 Yabba dabba doooooooo! Peace, Linda

    There are so many yabba dabba doo moments – seeing my daughter dressed in her wedding gown…she was a beautiful Victorian vision…definitely the birth of each of my four grandchildren and especially the birth of my little preemie grandson born at 2 lbs 1 oz…he was a miracle! Also watching my son, who is an incredible guitarist, on stage show performances…I am so blessed…thanks for your yabba dabba doo post! It made me realize how much I am grateful for. 🙂 Have an awesome weekend! 🙂

      Your children are blessed to have you Jay! I can see how you care for them, appreciate their talents, and support their dreams. Not all can. Blessings back to you especially now that you are extending the same love to your grandkiddos! 🙂
