Would rather see a movie about how they hit hard times and Snorky turns to the world of porn.

I remember watching reruns of this I think on Cartoon Network late at night (I think it was before Adult Swim though) and always thought the show was really weird. Definitely a weirder twist to make it into a horror film.

I used to watch the Banana Splits every Saturday morning when I was a kid.

Should have gone with H.R. Pufnstuf. That was a creepy show. I feel like a lot of stoners worked on that one.

Re: The Banana Splits to be revived as horror movie on SYFY

I know its been said before but WTF? Ive probably seen every episode a dozen times or more but not in 30+ years. Strange thing to reboot as a horror show to say the least.

Re: The Banana Splits to be revived as horror movie on SYFY

I remember this show as a kid. Their record album came on a box of cereal.

Everyone knows a few pieces of totally useless trivia. One of mine revolves around the one man band musical instrument. Anyone else remember the name of it? I can never hold back since it's one of the few things I know.
