Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles is one half-hour packed with the adventures of two of the most unusual animation creations of the legendary Hanna-Barbera studio. Buzz Conroy is a heroic boy-genius who builds the powerful robot Frankenstein Jr. When the Ghastly Genie, the Junk Man and other evildoers get up to their old tricks, "Frankie" and his young creator crank into action. The crime fighting coalition continues with the Impossibles, a group of superheroes disguised as a beatnik rock group. At the direction of "Big D," Multi Man, Coil Man and Fluid Man make hot-rockin' musical justice thwarting thieves and corralling crooks with their transformative powers. All-family classic cartoon fun isn't just possible - it's guaranteed with this 2-Disc, 18-Episode Collection.

Combining the Beatles fad and superheroes, this three some of heroes: Multi-Man, Fluid Man, and Coil Man fight evil each week (two segments per episodes). Usually taking the shape of a rather typical supervillain who either wants to rob banks or take over the world. Granted this gets routine, but do supervillains act any other way.
Alongside the Impossibles and sharing the middle segment is Frankeinstein Jr. A huge superhero robot (voiced by Addam's Family Ted Cassidy's Lurch) created by Professor Conroy to assist his son, Buzz in fighting crime and evil doers.
Outside of the outlandish, colorful animation; the best thing about the series is the great voice talent. Dick Beals, Paul Frees (who does the opening narration), Don Messick, John Stephenson. The best of the best.
There isn't a great deal of character development in this series. But it does have a great theme song, some great gags, and some really awesome voice talent. Did I mention it's colorful?
Just after this came out on DVD, Depatie-Frelings' Secret Six came out on digital. Now if only Mighty Mouse and the Might Heroes could make it out.
Fun series for kids and for fans of the sixties.
The Impossibles were super heroes like no other. They were a rock band who doubled as crime fighters! A.M. Radio was very pop oriented and kid friendly. I could relate to their world. I always loved the bad guys and their dirty tricks. I couldn't wait for the Impossibles to leap into action and stop them.
Frankenstein Jr. was Buzz Conroy's invention. Wow, to be a boy genius and live in this futuristic world was what I aspired to be. I loved his laboratory on that mountain. Today, I find Buzz a little overbearing. Ted Cassidy's voice for Frankenstein Jr. is perfectly matched. The animation is a bit different than what was to follow. It was easy for little minds and eyes to devour.
This cartoon vanished due to concerned parent groups finding it too violent. Is outsmarting bad guys violent? Thank you Warner Brothers for bringing back a distant memory. Saturday Morning magic is forever preserved.
The only real flaw in this set is the extremely uninformative menu, which uses episode numbers (1A, 1B, etc.) instead of titles. I don't get the point of that, since it makes it 'impossible' to zero in on your favorites. To get around this, I sat down and went through both DVD's, making my own episode guide; if any of my fellow Hanna-Barberians would like to make use of it, I am posting it in the 'Comments' section of this review.
This is just a minor caveat, though; it's a wonderful collection!
Nice background on the conceptions of the three Impossibles and Frankenstein Jr. who was voiced by Ted Cassidy who was busy working for both Gene Roddenberry and Hanna-Barbera in the 1960's.
