Subject: Banana Splits to make a comeback... No Joke

Written By: woops on 08/20/08 at 7:35 pm

Banana Splits to return


Guessing it'll probably be in CGI and be in the style of today's pop and/or rap  ::)

Much like how George of the Jungle and Eek! the Cat (aka Chowder...though not really) got "loonatic'd"  ::) 8-P


Not sure if it would even be a hit since today's kids probably don't have clue about it or most Hanna Barbera (ugh, now Cartoon Network Studios) cartoon character besides Scooby and/or The Flinstones (as cereal & vitamin mascots).

The original still gets some air play on Cartoon Network...granted its really early in the morning on weekends but I'm sure some kids have seen it.

I have had this theme song in my head for 35 years!  You can watch some stuff on youtube, which I do with my 5 year old now and again.

...tra la la la.  La la la la la...

I watched heavily editted versions of Banana Splits early in the mornings around the early/mid 90s. What I saw of it didn't impress me even though I wanted it to. I think it was just too dated for me.

Great when I was young, but have not seen the show in adulthood.

I liked the cartoons and shows the best... The Arabians Nights (size...of an elephant), Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn (I think that one was in it), Treasure Island (with a young Jan Michael Vincent...I think).... :)

Couldn't have been made far from it...no more than three/four years by my reckoning...

Really? It all makes sense now, lol. All that's missed out is the marijuana and the free love . . . Probably for the better.  ;D
