Slight correction: the whole “parents were worried the Human Torch would convince kids to set themselves on fire” thing is a myth. The reason the Human Torch was replaced in that version of The Fantastic Four cartoon is that Johnny Storm had been licensed as a potential movie and because licensing issues are stupid they couldn’t use him in the show, hence he was replaced by HERBIE. They the licensed the Thing the results would have been the same only with Ben Grimm replaced by HERBIE. And possibly we would have missed out on this version:

Yep, from Fred & Barney Meet The Thing. (Spoiler: they never actually met outside of the intro and ad break stingers.)
