If you’re of a certain age, then when you were young, certain television programs from a certain pair of brothers provided lots of enjoyment and confusion, what with all kinds of trippy characters and costumes that seemed cast-offs from Star Trek or Doctor Who. Yes, I’m talking about the wild, wonderful Kroftt Brothers.
Now I was one of perhaps a few dozen folks back in the mid-1990’s when Saturday Morning: Cartoon’s Greatest Hits came out and then proceeded to stay up all night and day for a weekend to watch reruns of all those great shows on, I think, TBS. It was a hoot. FYI – this is a great album and I still listen to it every couple of months.
Anyway, the reason for this post is not to dwell on childhood entertainment and memories of simpler times. I wanted to share some crazy – good, and just crazy – news: there is a new movie coming out later this year (date TBD) called The Banana Splits. This is based on the original show which mixed live action costumed folks with cartoons.
Hearing that the trailer was out, I had to watch…and I did not realize this was a horror movie! OMG I cannot wait! Looks like direct to video and then a semi-permanent run on SciFY will be its fate. But wahoo, this looks like a neat remix of our childhood with some weird and scary stuff. Excellent.
So, you know, I just had to share – enjoy!
Consider this an open thread for non-SCOTUS conversation.
