English term or phrase: Flintstones vitamins
Your drugstore carries thousands of bottles of colored pills. These are the ones you actually need
The greatest moment in the history of supplements came on September 1, 1998. That's when a sportswriter challenged Sammy Sosa on how he could compete with the androstenedione-assisted Mark McGwire. In reply, Sosa uncorked a shocker: He owed it all -- wink -- to Flintstones vitamins.
这种维生素叫什么?

Chinese translation:Flintstones复合维生素/聪明仔复合维生素
Explanation:
是由Bayer(拜耳)公司生产的以The Flintstones卡通角色为造型的多种复合维生素及其他营养品,主要是为孩子。好象The Flintstones还没有在国内上演,但港台翻成<<聪明笨伯>>。我觉得翻译成Flintstones复合维生素就可以了,如果愿意的话,可将Flintstones加上,起个比较中国化的名字,比如聪明仔复合维生素或乖孩子复合维生素什么的。

Thanks a lot!
But Sosa and McGwire are both baseball stars, so this multivitamin is not just aimed at '孩子'.
