1960s-time kids show The Banana Splits is being recreated as a horror movie. Initially proposed as a kids’ variety show that mixed live-action and animated elements, The Banana Splits Adventure Hour was a NBC program facilitated by a cast of creature characters who played in a band together, which kept running for two seasons from 1968-1970.
Made by Hanna-Barbera Productions – who administered the animation roost for decades with hits like The Flintstones, Scooby-Doo, The Jetsons and The Smurfs – The Banana Splits comprised of Fleegle (a beagle on guitar and vocals), Bingo (a gorilla on drums and vocals), Drooper (a lion on bass and vocals) and Snorky (an elephant on keyboards). The group was initially to be known as The Banana Bunch, however when that name demonstrated powerless to get because of legitimate issues with the writer of a book by a similar name, Hanna-Barbera chose to run rather with The Banana Splits Adventure Hour. The series saw oddly psychedelic, animal-suited actors perform sketches, music and introduce animated content.
Over 50 years after the fact, The Banana Splits are inspiring set to make a rebound of sorts. Despite the fact that Warner Bros conveyed the characters in 2008 to a certain degree, Deadline reports that not exclusively are The Banana Splits on their way back by and by, however this time in a totally unique manner, as the subject of a horror movie. Debuting this year by means of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, The Banana Splits will later introduction on TV at Syfy.
The film’s plot centers around a young boy named Harley, who, alongside his family, makes an uncommon birthday excursion to see a taping of The Banana Splits TV show. Be that as it may, when things take a bizarre turn, bodies start piling up and all of a sudden, Harley’s fun day at a TV studio changes into something unmistakably increasingly evil. At the season of this composition, there’s no word regarding whether the film will be set during the 1960s or present day. As far as cast, The Banana Splits will star Dani Kind, Finlay Wojtak-Hissong, Romeo Carere, Steve Lund, Sara Canning and will be coordinated by Danishka Esterhazy. There as of now is no affirmed release date, however the film is affirmed for release not long from now.
To the extent possibly unpleasant ideas for a horror movie go, this one appears to have everything. Characters from a kids’ variety show being associated in murder is sufficiently odd for what it’s worth, yet once the genuine Banana Splits are added to the equation, things get much murkier. Viewing the original characters sing their theme song is chilling for reasons that are hard to bind. Maybe it’s the unblinking eyes or the ratty looking outfits, yet ideally whatever it is, Esterhazy will take care to saddle it. With a set up this way, there’s sufficient potential to make The Banana Splits an essential piece of horror.
