The popular 60’s “rock band” The Banana Splits is back and better than ever! I’ve only seen the show in repeats obviously; but what a FUN show! The Banana Splits band (if you aren’t aware) includes Fleegle (a dog), Drooper (a lion), Bingo (a gorilla) and Snorky (an elephant).
The original show debut in 1968 with the furry ‘fab four’ playing hosts on “The Banana Splits Adventure Hour” created by Hanna-Barbera. It featured comedy shorts and music videos with that great groovy 60’s vibe of course! The new show has been updated for today’s kids – but will still be quite groovy!
You can also check out the brand new Banana Splits website! Is super cute and has lots of activities to check out. There is a jokes section, music, a secret code (shh!) and even a club that doesn’t even require you to put in any of your child’s personal information, just a name so you can print out his or her very own membership card! You will find comedy videos on the site also filled with lots of laughs and lots of music.
Soon enough there will be some merch you can get including DVD’s, music cd’s and you will also even be able to catch the Banana Splits in CONCERT!
The Banana Splits show will be running in Cartoon Network beginning September 2nd between the hours of 9am and 2pm. Check your local listings!
