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.

Overview

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.
