« on: June 15, 2019, 11:19:03 am »
HB's live-action series from the late 1960s goes to the big screen...

Banana Splits
"The coyote is a living, breathing allegory of Want. He is always hungry. He is always poor, out of luck, and friendless. The meanest creatures despise him. And even the fleas would dessert him for a velocipide."~Mark Twain
(Baps the old humorist.)

Once in the sixth grade, I drew a comic strip parody of the Banana Splits in which one of my teachers infiltrated the group as Snorkie.

The DVD of this movie comes out on Aug. 27th. As cheesy and corny as this movie might be, I'm going to pick up a copy. ;) I loved watching the Banana Splits and other Kroft shows back in the 70's.

The above links are what the Banana Splits are actually about. The original tv show in the 70's had nothing to do with horror at all.

Why

That all I can say, even though I never really cared for the show as a kid.

I heard it was because the Five Nights At Freddy's Movie was soon to come out so they made this on a rush, to compete with it or possibly sabotage the Five Nights film by making the audience associate bad feelings/bad movie with bad, killer, animatronic monsters.
The irony is that if they had just focused on making a good film, a wholesome film that was family friendly they could have a lot more money and sabotaged Five Nights by taking away the scare/creepy factor with wholesome, goofy characters. Like maybe yeah the splits are animatronics that have come to life but instead of killing they just want to entertain and spread joy and love and happiness with song and dance.
