Christmas 2014: Fruity Pebbles commercial

A commercial from the late 80s/early 90s (I think):

I have three questions about this ad:

1. I know that in the world of The Flintstones the guys don’t wear pants. Then why does Santa have pants while Barney looks like he’s wearing something that should be worn by Mrs. Claus?

2. As I asked in my column for The Saturday Evening Post, what exactly is the timeline of The Flintstones? In a B.C. world they celebrate Christmas?

3. At the very end, why does Fred start chewing even though he hasn’t even put any cereal in his mouth?
