THE BANANA SPLITS return!
Created 06/14/1999 - 23:00
THE BANANA SPLITS will return via Cartoon Network Online's Web Premiere
Toon series in 2000. Produced by Hanna-Barbera and Sid & Marty Krofft, THE
BANANA SPLITS ADVENTURE HOUR was originally broadcast on NBC from 1968-70,
and the show was repeated throughout the 1970s. Episodes currently air
Saturday mornings on Cartoon Network. The live-action variety show featured
rock musician characters in fuzzy animal suits: Fleagle, a beagle; Drooper,
a lion; Bingo, a gorilla; and Snorky, an elephant. The foursome would
perform goofy sketch comedy or rock music, then introduce serialized
cartoon segments. In the Web Premiere Toon version, the Banana Splits will
get zapped into an interactive, animated universe for their Web adventures.
Cartoon Network Online's first Web Premiere Toons, PINK DONKEY AND THE FLY,
by Gary Panter, and B. HAPPY, by Mark Newgarden, were launched in February
