We're The Banana Splits
Your childhood TV rock-n-roll idols, on vinyl!
One of the greatest things about the music of the 60's is how it accessible it was to just about anyone. The cool kids had the Beatles and the Stones; middle America watched the Monkees; the hippies had the Dead and Jefferson Airplane; even Mom and Dad could swing to a homogenized version of Lennon & McCartney done up by Enoch Light or Tony Bennett. And for the toddlers, there were these weirdos, the Banana Splits.
I was suprised at how good some of the songs on this hard to find LP are (thanks to my friend Gary who let me borrow his copy). I'm not saying the Banana Splits were the next Beatles, but compared to the kind of music they make for kids today (the Barney theme comes to mind) this stuff kicks ass. Let's hear it for Fleagle, Bingo, Drooper and Snork!

As with everyone else on this board, Im hoping that Warner - who has the rights to HB properties will bring out a BS dvd box set. But dont hold your breathe. Other HB properties that were slated for this year have been pushed back indefinately ie Wally Gator, Grape Ape, Magilla Gorilla, Inch High Private Eye, Honk Kong Fuey and others. For now - I'd tivo it or go to local toy shows - there always seem to be "people who have acess to home made dvds" of these types of show. While I AM NOT advocating piracy, its these types of studio actions that drive us fans to find our beloved show(s) "where ever" we can find them. I was at a show on sunday and saw a home made 4 dvd set - around $30 - the shows were tivod and in good shape except for the Boomerang logo. No I didnt buy it. (03-08-2006)
