Rampantly silly, but dated nostalgia,
This review is from: Bananaman - The Ultimate Collection [DVD]  (DVD)
Early 1980s cartoon silliness, driven by the voices of The Goodies. Each five minute episode is a chaotic mini-action movie, and a trip down memory lane for people of my age (cough).
There are some good jokes in there, but it's strictly for kids and all seems a bit dated now. As a parody of the superhero genre it still stands up though.
The animation is great in parts, but quite ropey in others, it was obviously done on a budget. The film transfer is OK but not fantastic- there's quite a lot of dust on the print and at one point you can even see the edge of the reel as it slips out of alignment... oops.
Nostaglic and silly fun, but one of those things that doesn't quite seem as good now as it did when you were a kid.
