Man, I had totally forgotten about that Thing cartoon until today.

I'm not sure if I should thank you for dredging up those memories.


I wish he had kept the complete phrase. "Yay BO", indeed.


Sadly, I own every episode of that horrid Thing cartoon. Benjy Grimm indeed.

I remembered that dreadful show, but I had forgotten about the Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble angle until I started looking into it online. This was about the same time Hanna Barberra was draining every last drop out of the already bone-dry Flintstones well, alongside other classics like "Fred and Barney Meet the Shmoo".

So, De...do you have the episodes on video or DVD?


(Obligatory "for the record" nitpick: Fred and Barney never *actually* meet The Thing in that series; it's just a package of two unrelated cartoons.)

But, yeah, that series sucked....

I didn't realize it took Ben that long to utter his signature phrase! #22 is pretty far along there.

Mark Engblom

Yeah, I was surprised to learn that as well. I would have assumed he first used it long before that...but #22 is it.

Boy, the perfect time to unveil it would have been the time travel adventure in FF #5 (during Ben and the boys' brief stint as pirates).


I would have gone with "Thing thump!"
