Tra la la, la la la la!
The classic kids’ TV series The Banana Splits is the latest show set to be rebooted, but in a totally bizarre format!
You might remember the slightly psychedelic show featuring Bingo, Fleegle, Drooper and Snorky who rocked out as a band when they weren’t hooning around in dune buggies.
Incredibly The Banana Splits Adventure Hour variety program only ran for two seasons, but has been a cult faveroute ever since.
Now it’s been announced that they will be revived for a new movie by Warner Bros.
But in a twist, the new flick will be a horror film!
A press release states:
“In the upcoming horror thriller, a boy named Harley and his family 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. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?”
The characters were created by the Krofft Brothers for Hanna-Barbera, which produced just 31 episodes as a mix of live-action and cartoons where it screened in Australia on ABC.
