The Banana Splits Club


Sure they were just four guys in silly, heavy costumes wandering around bumping into things to pre-recorded dialogue (and laugh tracks that found the whole show funnier than it was) by higher paid voice actors like Paul Winchell but there was somwthing endearing about the Banana Splits. Kelloggs thought so in 1969 and came up with this club you could join for a quarter! I never did but I wish I had!

Loved The Banana Splits! ( and the Arabian Knights: Siiize of an elephant!!) The '60's happened in the '70's in the UK, so these guys were perfect for us!
