The Impossibles is a series of action/adventure segments of Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles, produced by Hanna-Barbera (H-B) for CBS' Saturday morning children's programming. It ran from 1966 to 1967, airing 18 episodes that spanned one season.



The show was originally going to be titled "The Incredibles." This is shown in this concept art. The name would later be used for the Pixar franchise of the same name.

There were also plans for a soundtrack album featuring the songs performed by the band. It never got past a test pressing featuring "Hiddy Hiddy Hoo" and "She Couldn't Dance."



The music was composed by Hoyt Curtin.
