Okay anyone remember the thing transforming into the thing by putting on a belt?
I remember it from an old fantastic four cartoon long ago, but cant find the video clip anywhere. He'd Say Its Clobberin Time, Put On The Belt n Transform Kinda Like This,  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64Jv8zbUsf4 .
 
No1 Ever Seems To Know What Im Talking About.

Also I Thought The Thing Was Hinting To This In The Movie When He Said "Maybe it's missing a utility belt" . Kinda Like How Cyclopes Mentions Wolverines Yellow Jumpsuit.

I remember this cartoon from 1980 (I'm mpretty sure) on NBC.   
 
In this cartoon series Ben is a teenager whom goes by the name "Benjy" and whenever he needs to become the Thing he does something  (I can't remember what) with his ring while saying "Thing-Ring do your thing!", at which point he turns into the Thing.  None of the other members of the F. F. are seen or referred to in this series.  It was a VERY corny/cheesy show, but I was and am such a big Thing fan that I loved it anyway.

That was actually my first introduction to the Thing. I started watching the other cartoon and the comics and I'm going "Wtf? Where's the Thing ring?"
