The Banana Splits

The Banana Splits
It only produced 31 episodes but the Hanna-Barbara and Sid and Marty Kroft co-production was brought to us at the height of the Bubblegum music era. It gave us one of the first live action/animated shows, a catchy theme song and a legacy of happy cheesiness. This could be a legitimate dark horse candidate for the Fictitious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

The Bullet Points:
TV Show Appeared:
The Banana Splits (1968-70)


The Fictional Band:
Fleagle (A Beagle who played guitar and vocals)
Bingo (A Gorila who played the drums and vocals)
Drooper (A lion who played bass and vocals)
Snorky (An elephant who played keyboards)

Songs you might remember:
The Tra La La Song

Why you should vote for them:
Doesn’t the Krofts deserve something here?

Why you should not vote for them:
They had no real signature songs, except for their theme song.
