Now his 16,000-square-foot underground house, situated in southeast Las Vegas at 3970 Spencer St., is on the market. (Click here to go to the listing.)

Dick Clark’s Crazy Flintstones House

Dick Clark has put his “Flintstones” house in Malibu on the market in 2012 for 3.5 million. The pad could truly double for the home of Fred and Wilma. The Flintstone-eque home sits atop a remote bluff in Malibu — a stoney crib that has 360 degree ocean and mountain views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, Boney Mountains and Serrano Valley, as well as the city of Los Angeles.

Clark’s home sits on 22.89 acres, and only has one bedroom and two bathrooms.
