Fred and Barney Meet the Thing

Fred and Barney Meet the Thing was an hour-long omnibus show on NBC in 1979–80. Contrary to the show's title, Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble did not actually meet the Thing, except in short bumper sketches. Later, the Shmoo was added to the ensemble.

The first half of the program was a rerun from The New Fred and Barney Show. The second half featured a teenage version of Benjamin Grimm alias the Thing from The Fantastic Four. This version of the Thing was not a permanently mutated adult, but a nerdy high school student who joined his rings together while intoning, "Thing ring, do your thing!"
