Wacky psychedelic ’60s icons The Banana Splits, whose live-action Saturday morning TV show delighted a generation of kids, are baaaaaaack.
Yes, Bingo, Fleegle, Drooper, and Snorky are returning in an original horror movie (yes, you read that right) that’s set to premiere on the Syfy. Channel later this year.
In the upcoming horror thriller, “A boy named Harley and his family (brother Austin, mother Beth, and father Mitch) attend a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley and business as usual for Rebecca, the producer of the series. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?”
And yes, the iconic theme song – TRA LA LA LA LA LA LA! – is still being used, albeit in a slightly more sinister version.
Watch the trailer below.
