Fred and Barney Meet the Shmoo is a 90-minute Saturday morning animated package show produced by Hanna-Barbera which aired on NBC from December 8, 1979 to November 15, 1980. It contained the following segments:

The show was a repackaging of episodes from The New Fred and Barney Show and The Thing (originally broadcast as Fred and Barney Meet The Thing) combined with half-hour reruns of The New Shmoo.

Despite the show's title, Fred, Barney, the Thing and the Shmoo only appeared briefly together in bumpers between segments. In 1980, the Shmoo joined Fred and Barney on the "Bedrock Cops" segment of The Flintstone Comedy Show.

Like many animated series created by Hanna-Barbera in the 1970s, the show contained a laugh track, one of their last productions to do so.
