Frankenstein Jr. and The Impossibles

Show Summary

Frankenstein Jr. was created by Dr. Conroy to help fight crime. He is a 30-foot mechanic robot that is summoned by a ring that is worn by Buzz, Dr. Conroy's son.

The Impossibles were a rock group who were also multi-dimensional super heroes. The Impossibles consisted of:

Coil Man (a.k.a. Coily) could transform his limbs into impossibly stretchable coils, allowing him to bounce to avoid attacks, deliver long-ranged punches, and drill through walls. Coil Man usually drove the Impossimobile, and his guitar contained a receiver through which "Big D" could contact the group. Coil Man was voiced by Hal Smith. The character was patterned after Stooge Curly Howard.
Fluid Man (a.k.a. Fluey or Flo) was the leader of the trio, and could morph parts of his body into a liquid form. Fluid Man was voiced by Paul Frees . The character was patterned after Stooge Larry Fine, with the stand-up hair being the obvious tip-off.
Multi Man (a.k.a. Multi) could create infinite duplicates of himself. His duplicates rarely if ever functioned independently, and were usually used for extra strength or transportation (he could fly by continuously creating replicas above himself). A physical trait that he shared with many of his contemporaries in cartoons and comics was a mop of hair that entirely covered his eyes. Multi Man was voiced by Don Messick. The character was patterned after Stooge Mo Howard, who was the leader there, as well.moreless

  • a wonder part of my childhood!

    I grew up in the 1960's and I could recall watching all the Saturday Morning shows in that decade. One of the best shows from hanna Barbara is "Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossible." Impossible it may seen, but I fell in love with the series. One of the reason why I'm lookming forward to watching cartoons on Saturday morning. It's cool to see Frankenstein Jr. flying though the air and the Impossibles both sing and save the world. it's a jopy indeed. I could remember like it was yesterday. I watch the show every Saturday morning. I love that show.moreless
  • Musical superheroes rock!

    8.1
    First off, I'm a sucker for music! There have been many other instances where superheroes (or any form of action team) had the guts playing music. You had...



    The Kid Super Power Hour (NBC 1981-82)



    GI Joe (see episode Cold Slither)



    The Flash (see episode Child's Play)



    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Coming Out of Our Shells stage show)



    But what started it all, The Impossibles! When the Impossibles weren't fighting off villians, they were the singing Impossibles (liked their 60's style music). They were the hottest H-B music trio until Josie, Valerie & Melody came along. If you saw the Way Outs episodes on the Flintstones, you might even say that they\'re Multi Man\'s prehistoric ancestors!moreless
  • Another classic Hanna - Barbera cartoon from the 1960's.

    Another classic Hanna - Barbera cartoon from the 1960's. A scientist named Dr. Conroy develops a 30 foot tall robot that looked like Frankenstein's Monster. The robot would help the scientists young son Buzz whenever he got into trouble. Of course, he got into trouble every week, so he needed to call the robot. I think he had a special ring or something to call the robot. This was very similar to Jonny Quest and thos types of H B Shows. This one was about as good as any of their shows and of course was followed by contorversy over the violence.moreless
  • Lame.

    1.1
    Boring crap that is not enough to entertain a cochroach. **** this show is not enough to entertain anyone. It is stupid and pointless and not worth my time. They should never have aired this crap but they try to get it on the air so they can get a little bit of cash. But it is gone and that is all that matters.
  • Absoorbing for this 7-year-old when first released but now ...

    3.8
    Only the voice of Ted Cassidy (Lurch) as Frankenstein Jr gives this any interest nowadays.

    The late Mr Halliwell in his TV Companion described this as "witless". He's right - there's nothing to hold the attention of an adult. There are also large credibility gaps. Case in point: the Impossibles are fighting "Billy the Kidder" who attacks the boys with a cannon that appears from absolutely nowhere out in the desert. Definitely one of Hanna Barbera's lesser efforts (sad to say as it was a favorite of this writer and some of his companions at the time)Maybe worth a look for nostalgia purposes otherwise give it a miss.moreless
