HILLSBOROUGH, Calif. -- Fred Flintstone fought the law — and he won.

Technically, the owner of the fanciful Flintstones house in a posh San Francisco suburb settled a lawsuit with the town of Hillsborough. But the agreement will allow Fred and his friends to remain.

In a yabba dabba dispute that played out in international media, retired publishing mogul Florence Fang defended her colorful, bulbous-shaped house and its elaborate homage to “The Flintstones” family.

According to records, the town will review and approve a survey of the landscaping improvements, and Fang will apply for building permits.

The town will also pay Fang $125,000.

The lawsuit was dismissed in court on April 27.
