Town sues owners of iconic Flintstone House because they built their home ...

It's one of the funniest cartoons ever made, but residents living in the town of Hillsborough in San Mateo County, California are not seeing the funny side of a home nicknamed 'The Flintstone House' 

A complaint has been filed against the home which sits on a quiet suburban street with locals calling the building a 'public nuisance' alleging 'landscape modifications to the home were conducted without planning approvals or building permits.'

The home isn't owned by Fred Flintstone but Florence Fang, a former publisher of the San Francisco Examiner and now helms the San Mateo-based Florence Fang Family Foundation.  

The current owner, Florence Fang, has embraced the cartoonish look of the home and added dinosaur statues and a sign reading 'Yabba Dabba Doo' in recent months

'Before, passing by, I always wondered who's living in that house. Now I'm the one,' said the 83-year-old retired media mogul to Mercury News after buying the home last year.

Fang bought the orange-and-purple house in 2017 for $2.8million, but soon after purchasing the property, a number of dinosaur sculptures began appearing around the house and in the backyard according to SFGate. 

Fang termed the new installations which are sculptures, 'extensive improvements' and a sign reading 'Yabba Dabba Doo,'  

Fang also built a wall, steps, columns, gates, a parking strip and a deck to 'accommodate her plan to use 45 Berryessa for parties and social gatherings.'
