Hanna-Barbera continues to prove that beating your classic shows to the ground is a real bad thing., 27 December 2002
Author: dootuss from PA

Like many of the HB shows I've reviewed, I saw this on Cartoon Network's "Boomerang" block. This show can be easily described with one word: BAD!!! That's what I think about this show. Anyways, here's the scoop: This show was still "Fred and Barney Meet The Thing"(Even then, it was bad), but they added another sketch with this bell shaped glob called "The Shmoo" (Okay....That's REALLY insane!) who solved crimes with these reporters(How many times has HB used the "Solving Mysteries" concept over the years?). This show was so utterly painful. I had to turn it off not too long into it.

Overall, this show is an atrocity, and continues to show how Hanna-Barbera beats their creations to the ground. Avoid this show at all costs! It's a disgrace to see our beloved "Flinstones" characters become mockeries with this awful show.

This gets no stars.
