The Thing

The Thing (Benjamin Jacob "Ben" Grimm) is a fictional character in the Marvel Comics universe, a founding member of the superhero team The Fantastic Four. He was created by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee in The Fantastic Four #1 (Nov. 1961). His trademark battle cry, "It's clobberin' time!" is one of comics' most recognizable catchphrases.

The Thing Movies

The Thing appears in the unreleased 1994 Fantastic Four movie produced by Roger Corman as well as the 2005 film released by 20th Century Fox. He is portrayed by Michael Bailey Smith (as Ben) and Carl Ciarfalio (as the Thing) in the former and Michael Chiklis (in both roles) in the latter, where general consensus holds his to be the most comic-accurate portrayal in the film (although the prosthetic costume Chiklis wore, while praised in theory for eschewing CGI, whas generally considered to be a disappointment in design and execution.)

Fred and Barney Meet the Thing

Fred and Barney Meet the Thing was an animated television series that aired in 1979. Each hour-long episode of the series had two distinct segments: one featuring The Flintstones, and the other featuring a very loose adaptation of Marvel Comics' character The Thing.
In the cartoon, the Thing is a boy, Benjy Grimm, who transforms into the rock-skinned superhero by touching magic rings together and reciting "thing ring, do your thing". The comic book version of the Thing is the jaded adult Benjamin "Ben" Grimm, who has been trapped in his inhuman rocky form for most of his existence. The Thing appears to be the only character from the Marvel Universe in the series. The two segments did not really cross over with one another; despite the series' title, Fred Flintstone, Barney Rubble,The Thing, and The Shmoo(look below) only really met each other in brief bumpers between the segments.
