Produced by Creator/HannaBarbera for Creator/{{CBS}} in 1966, the same year as ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhost'', Frankenstein Jr. was a gigantic, sentient DoAnythingRobot built and commanded by boy scientist Buzz Conroy. Their base of operations was a mountaintop laboratory run by Buzz's father.

While Frankenstein Jr held the first part of the title, he shared his show with ''WesternAnimation/TheImpossibles,, who had two segments per show while he only had one. ''Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles'' was one of the last H-B series animated in the classic Ed Benedict style.
