    @Mo, what did this have to do with the Banana Splits? I don't remember them being with this show. Why am I associating them with The Archies?

    I liked Sid and Marty Krofft though. Weird thought it was. That Danger Island business, I don't know...

    Thank you! I could not remember what I saw him in. I went to see that for William Katt (Carrie and First Love with Susan Dey). He was pretty. I do remember their fine looking surfer physiques and thinking how much more of a "face" person I was than a body. It's good for a teenager to learn about things like that.

    The way it worked was that the Banana Splits (in animal costumes) would introduce various shows while doing their crazy stuff inside their colorful house. "Danger Island" was unbearable because each episode was so short. I know that the guy who played Chongo was a legendary stunt coordinator (Kim Kahana). I looked him up, and the guy is still alive (89), and still working. Kahana was also a wounded Korean War vet. Another weird trivia item - the director of Danger Island was Richard Donner - who went on to direct "Superman" (Christopher Reeve version), "Lethal Weapon", and "Goonies".

    Hmm. That's interesting. I kind of remember something about the Banana Splits having different shows...I remember a half-animated Huckleberry Finn show where Huck, Tom, and Becky were real kids and everyone else was animated. That was trippy. I think I forgot how The Banana Splits worked, but that makes sense. And apparently Kim Kahana and Richard Donner put down some of the drugs at least for a little while...

    Anyway, it was The New Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

    2019 TV movie[edit]

    On February 19, 2019, Warner Bros. Television Group’s Blue Ribbon Content announced that it is producing a film version of The Banana Splits, which will venture into a horror-like setting, scheduled to be released through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and to air on Syfyin the United States in 2019. According to the synopsis, a boy named Harley is spending his birthday with his family at a taping of the TV show. The outing takes an unexpected turn that involves a rising body count. Danishka Esterhazy is directing the feature based on a script by Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas.[10]

    You had to admire the advanced costuming and special effects of "Land of the Lost", though!
