Another Hanna-Barbera classic cartoon is being offered as part of Warner Archive’s Manufacture of Demand DVD-R system. Now you can get Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles – The Complete Series. The series came from the era when they’d tag team two shows in order to create a half hour show.
At no point does the giant Frankenstein robot and his genius boy team up with the rock trio to fight crime. The big vocal star is Lurch from The Addams Family as the monster. All 18 episodes will be on 2 DVD-Rs for the SRP of $29.95. There’s even a bonus feature called “Monster Rock” about the series. Here’s the preview from Warner Archive:
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.
