The Banana Splits get a bit of a bad break in this clip from Warner Bros.’ horror movie reboot of the classic 60s kids show The Banana Splits Adventure Hour.
In the clip, the Banana Splits’ show is cancelled by an overzealous young TV executive – leading to the bizarre and nostalgia-bending plot described after the clip.
Here’s the synopsis:
“The Banana Splits Movie offers a new take on the classic characters. The film follows a boy named Harley and his family as they go to a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?”
The Banana Splits Movie is due out on digital platforms August 13, followed by Blu-ray and DVD on August 27.
