The Impossibles is an animated science fiction television series, produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions, that debuted on CBS on September 10, 1966, and ran on Saturday mornings until September 7, 1968 along with Frankenstein Jr. as Frankenstein Jr. and The Impossibles. CBS ran two new segments of The Impossibles each Saturday, separated by a new segment of Frankenstein Jr.

The Impossibles appeared in reruns on Cartoon Network from 1992-2000. In 2000, The series began airing on Cartoon Network's sister channel Boomerang.


The Impossibles are a trio of superheroes (Multi Man, Fluid Man, and Coil Man) who pose undercover as a Beatles-esque rock music band. The characters' names are descriptive of their powers: Multi-Man (voiced by Don Messick) can create identical copies of himself; Coil-Man (voiced by Hal Smith) can form into a super-springy coil; and Fluid-Man (voiced by Paul Frees) can transform his body into any fluid. The heroes receive assignments from "Big D" (also voiced by Frees), who contacts them via a receiver in the base of Coil-Man's left-handed guitar.

The series was the target of complaints about violence in children's television, and was canceled in 1968.
