The NEW Banana Splits

The Banana Splits (All New Intro) - metacafe

Here's an article from the Los Angeles Times --

"The Banana Splits are back, in a small way. Fleegle the beagle, Bingo the orangutan/ape, Drooper the lion and Snorky the elephant have been revived to appear in “as many as 130” interstitial comedy shorts and music videos on Cartoon Network and its cousin, Boomerang. They embody a band, a brand, a plan.

Giant stuffed animals – stuffed with people – the Splits first appeared on television from 1968 to 1970 in a live-action “Laugh-In”/”Monkees”/”Magilla Gorilla” mash-up produced by Hanna-Barbera and realized in part by Sid and Marty Krofft, pre-“Pufnstuf.” The original “The Banana Splits Adventure Hour” was re-cut, repackaged and reshown over the next couple of decades, so that its cultural influence extended into Generation X and beyond. The “Tra La La Song” theme was covered in the late 1970s by first-wave L.A. pop-punks the Dickies and in the 1990s by indie queen Liz Phair.

Notwithstanding a joke about e-mail and an anthropomorphic computer mouse, the new “Banana Splits” short-shorts – lasting only a couple of minutes each – are a straight extension of the original somewhat-less-than-intellectual property. Scheduled to air weekdays between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. – toddler time – these are not your typically twisted Cartoon Network recontextualizations, such as “Space Ghost Coast to Coast” or “Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law,” which explore what might be called the banality of the superheroic. This is just kids’ stuff.

Back in their (redesigned) psychedelic shack, the Splits act for the most part as if the ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and the oughts never happened. It’s all zoom lenses, cartoon sound effects and Highlights for Children humor. (What do you call cows from Alaska? Eski-moos. What clothes should you wear to take a test? Smarty pants.) And yet by remaining the same, it’s different. The laugh track that was then automatic now reads unavoidably as ironic. The Day-Glo setting recalls a wacky past rather than a groovy present.

Such subtle time-sprung distinctions will of course be lost on the target audience, which is being softened up for the wider re-branding. (That the new shorts are the brainchild of Warner Bros. Consumer Products should tell you much.) There will be a CD, a DVD and all manner of other merchandise."

Star Trek PEZ

This is in stores now. Here's the description from --

"The first Star Trek Pez will depict the original crew of Star Trek The Original Series in a gift set including eight dispensers and candy in assorted flavors. The dispensers included depict the original crew (Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu, and Chekov), plus the NCC-1701 Enterprise. The people at Pez Candy Inc. tell that the Enterprise is unique for Pez as it depicts a ’scene’ (a Pez first), where you see the ship emerging from a nebula cloud. The complete Limited Edition Star Trek Pez Collectors Gift Set will be available in September/October for around $20. It should be available both online at the Pez Factory Store as well as retailers like Wal-mart and Target. However the set will have a limited run of only 250,000 (for Pez that is limited!), so they will go fast. Each box will have a special numbered sticker as well."

Coming soon --

Last year I posted about putting together a compilation of NFL novelty tunes. Well, I dropped the ball on that. I hope to have it up this month. If anyone has a link to a funny football song or a song sung by an NFL player, let me know.

I'll also probably post pictures of some of my football autographs. And maybe a few other things if time permits.

I'm also working on some Christmas posts for next month.

Everybody have a great holiday season. I'll see ya soon.
