Canceled Too Soon #121: 'Fred and Barney Meet The Thing' (1979)

Welcome, to our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS! Every episode of Canceled Too Soon in November is dedicated to a failed television series based on a Marvel comic book, and we're starting off with one of the weirdest cartoon series ever made, in which Fantastic Four hero Ben Grimm, a.k.a. The Thing, has been transformed into a teenager who can summon his aging Brooklynite rock monster alter ego using magic rings, and by uttering the words "Thing Ring, Do Your Thing!"

Naturally, he uses those godlike powers to make picnics slightly less annoying.

Was this Hanna-Bareara cartoon, and one of the oddest footnotes in Marvel multimedia history, canceled too soon? We can't wait to find out! Join William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they delve into every episode of this inane cartoon series, and stick around, because our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS is only beginning!

Give it a listen!
