Elephant Spotting and Banana Splits

August 14, 2010

I’ve mentioned before how my ‘buzzy’ mind works and how it likes to make associations.

Well I noticed that a neighbour was drying some clothing in his house and the extractor tube

he used looked like an elephants’ trunk. This then instantly reminded me

of the crazy kid’s programme I used to watch ‘ The Banana Splits show ‘,

because of the elephant ‘ Snorky ‘ on it.

This is from Wikipedia.

The Banana Splits Adventure Hour is an hour-long, packaged television program

that featured both live action and animated segments. The series was produced

by Hanna-Barbera Productions, and ran for 31 episodes on NBC Saturday mornings,

from September 7, 1968 to September 5, 1970.  The series costumes and sets

were designed by Sid and Marty Krofft and the series’ sponsor was Kellogg’s Cereals.

The show was Hanna-Barbera’s initial foray into mixing live action with animation.

The hosts of the show were Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper and Snorky

(respectively, a dog, gorilla, lion, and elephant).

If this post serves no purpose but to amuse you, then my work here is done lol.
