* 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.

* GoneHorriblyWrong: Well, maybe not "horribly", but the opening heavily implies (and several episodes later confirms) that this is the same adult Ben Grimm as 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 intelligence equal to [[Bizarro franchise/Superman]], leading him to cause more disasters than he stops.

* BlessedWithSuck/CursedWithAwesome: the main character is, in reality, neither the scrawny geek Benjy nor the monstrous but popular Thing. He's the adult Ben Grimm, unable to change back to his normal self. The audience is apparently supposed to see his condition as CursedWithAwesome, but Benjy clearly feels differently. As he says in "To Thing or Not To Thing":
