A suprise UK only release for a zany once seen never quite forgotten corner of Hanna Barbera's output. There were rumours that problems with the quality of existing masters were what was standing in the way of a 'Golden Collection' style treatment. The Splits have been released at least twice before on VHS (in the UK) so i guess any kind of official DVD release is welcome .Whether its the complete Adventure Hour including the live action "Danger Island or a truncated best of remains to be seen (it does say Complete Season 1) So here's hoping.
Go Go Dancing girl gangs ,corny jokes,slapstick humour and musical romps through Six Flags Over Texas theme park are some of the treats. And on the cartoon side of things Three Musketeers, Arabian nights & Micro Adventures.
The music is suprisingly good and not just the Theme song .Barry White was just one of the talented writers drafted in to write the Splits brand of Bubblegum Pop/Soul. So if your formative years were spent watching The Pink Panther Show,HR Puff N Stuff, The Monkees & The Double Deckers this is probably for you.
Fleagle the dog on lead guitar, Drooper the lion on rhythm vox guitar , Bingo the gorilla on drums and Snorky the elephant on organ - Ladies & Gentleman The Banana Splits !
