Another really pathetic Hanna-Barbera show.
27 December 2002 | by dootussSee all my reviews

Don't get me wrong a LOT of Hanna-Barbera's shows are GREAT! But it's garbage like this that they made that ticks me off. Who in the hell thought that having "The Flinstones", and "The Thing" of "Fantastic Four" fame in an hour long show would be a good idea? It has to be the STUPIDEST thing they ever did!! Sure, they didn't have the Flinstones, and the Thing on at the same time(THAT would've been REALLY bad!), but still, it's bad overall.

The bottom line: Stay away from this show unless you want to see how bad, and mediocre a Hanna-Barbera show can be!
