* PowerIncontinence: "To Thing Or Not To Thing" has Benjy transforming back and forth at random all day (with a shortened and rock-less version of his usually TransformationSequence), while out with his friends. Somehow, nobody notices.

* BeachEpisode: "Beach Party Crashers"

to:

* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude: "The Thing Goes To The Dogs" features a supposedly-normal dog who, at one point, ''stands on her hind legs to play charades with the main characters.''
* BeachEpisode: "Beach Party Crashers"Crashers", though most of the characters spend the episode in their normal outfits, and one only changes into a bikini for one scene, which she spends mostly underwater. "Lights, Action, Thing" starts with the characters on a yacht in swimwear, hewing closer to the trope in spirit if not literally.



* CryptidEpisode: One of the first episodes is "Bigfoot Meets the Thing". Subverted in Bigfoot is just one of the Yancy Street Gang in a costume. Double-subverted when the real Bigfoot falls in love with the guy in the (female) costume.

* GoneHorriblyWrong: Well, maybe not "horribly", but the opening heavily implies (and several episodes later confirm) that this is the same adult Ben Grimm from the comics, but with a cure that had gone wrong, so he's unable to transform back into his normal adult self. Now he's stuck as either a scrawny geek or a monstrous pile of rocks, neither of which he likes (but he likes being the Thing less).
** To a lesser degree, the robot Clunk from "The Thing Meets The Clunk". It's a robot designed and programmed to help people, but in practice it combines strength equal to the Thing with absolutely no common sense, leading him to cause more disasters than he stops.

* ScoobyDooHoax: "The Thing and the Captain's Ghost" is based around this, with Spike of the Yancy Street Gang pretending to be the ghost of the title to scare Ronald. They themselves then get scared off by the ''heroes'' pretending to be ghosts [[spoiler:or, more specifically, by Betty, with her hair in curlers and her face in a mudpack.]]

* TransformationSequence: A particularly elaborate one, and another one for reversion. While he normally only transforms two or three times per episode (plus maybe one reversion sequence), in "The Great Decepto", where he transforms to or from the Thing ''seven times'', the first four in the span of a minute and a half.

* CelebrityLie: Used weirdly in "Decepto the Great". Benjy can't seem to produce the Thing for a school show, even though he ''is'' the Thing. (Every time he tries, he winds up scaring a comic-relief janitor character - seend only in this episode - and he changes back to try to calm him down instead of going on stage)

''The New Shmoo'' (originally a separate series) stars the titular creature from ''LilAbner'' as the TeamPet of a trio of teenagers in yet another of Creator/HannaBarbera's own [[RecycledINSPACE apings]] of the ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' formula.
