3. Gotta go with Jimmy!
He did that lame movie where he was HYPNOTIZED into being the world's greatest boxer!

If anyone remembers his hypno-keywords, the Banana Splits don't stand a chance!

8. The Banana Splits had a song that I really dug as a kid...
can't remember how it went now but I'd know it to hear it. is their music still around somewhere? i'd love to hear it again. maybe it was Lancelot Link's band... he had one too, y'know.

the song was kinda psychedelic with a cool rock guitar hook along the lines of "Love Is Only Sleeping" by the Monkees...

10. Thanks! I remembered "Wait Til Tomorrow" as soon as I saw the title....
Edited on Sun Feb-27-05 07:00 PM by stlsaxman
it wasn't the one i was thinking of but it but the reminucing as way cool.

I'll try to find "Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp" ... it has to be there!

on edit- FOUND IT! "Magic Feeling" had the cool hook but goes lame shortly thereafter...

All the songs from "The Evolution Revolution" are there.

Thanks again!

14. The Evolution Revolution!
That was Lancelot Link's band.

I actually went hunting this weekend for a DVD of Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp, but to no avail. That show RULED!

11. Okay, here's something to conisder
The melody for the Banana Splits' theme somg is IDENTICAL to the "oy, oy, oy" chorus of Bob Marley's "Buffalo Soldier."

Does that affect your vote at all?

Besides, you should be singing my praises, sundog - not one, but three threads featuring you today! You are the man of the hour! :toast:

BTW - I take money orders, traveler's cheques or a regular check with ten forms of i.d. :P

18. Sure! What are you sending me?
You have quite a variety on your menu! Better yet, send me a plane ticket and I'll peruse your menu in person.

20. The Banana Splits
I was a Good Times fan but the memories from Banana Splits are by far the warmest and happiest.
