Sid and Marty Krofft (*see H.R. Pufnstuf) along with Hanna Barbera brought this gang to life in the late '60's as a kids variety show. I remember it well from my childhood too from the reruns on our local UHF channel. (they used to make me, the youngest, get up and change channels manually). The show mixed live characters along with cartoons. Bingo, Fleegle, Drooper and Snorky even had a band!
Now it seems, the 'The Banana Splits Adventure Hour” is slated for a
reunion revenge tour in an upcoming Horror film from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The Syfy cable network has also signed on for T.V. distribution rights.In this article from bloody-disgusting.com , the plot is described as:
“A boy named Harley and his family (brother Austin, mother Beth, and father Mitch) attend a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley and business as usual for Rebecca, the producer of the series. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises....."
The film is due out later this year. Count me in......
