OMFG!!!


I rediscovered this show today when my friend youtubed it to show us something... and I just stood there thinking "HOLY SHIT!!!"

I hadn't seen Bananaman for over a decade, I had completely forgotten about it that whole time.

I used to love it, it just seemed so awesome back then. Now when I watch it it's just hilarious


Oh and also, just remembered this as well:

Puddle Lane! I never saw the cartoon, but I loved the books. I had damn near all of them.

Bananama was the lamest cartoon in the dandy. Whats even lamer is that desperate dan dosent carry a gun anymore, and he dosent have a big chin and beard, because the creators of the comic thought this would offend sensitive gays who are a little too feminin to be a cowboy. I dont think he eats "cow pies" anymore either, theyre just pies now. Google it.

How come you australians are stealing all our BRITISH cartoons too?, I suppose you had skippy though

Yeah, the 90s had some pretty awesome kids shows...

They were all so clever and stuff, things which adults could watch and enjoy as well, a lot of the time (you know, like hidden jokes only parents would get, so they wouldn't mind watching it with their kids).

But I honestly couldn't stand to watch any of the kids shows these days. I love watching some kids shows back when I was a little tyke though.
Although, that might just be because it brings back childhood memories


Oh, and Bananaman is from the 80s as well heh.

Well it looks like we've just discovered where David Firth got his inspiration for Salad Fingers.

That kid's voice is creepy as f*ck.

I know, the shows back then weren't determined to be 'educational yet fun' back then. There wasn't this BooBah and moral lesosns in every show crap, it was some damn fine cartoonage. Like Dexter's Laboratory. I loved that show. Though I can't remember what time period it was.

I never said i liked him in the Dandy
I was never a fan of that comic, Desperate Dan pissed me off.

I dont think you guys are old enought to remember Ivor the Engine, The Clangers, Noggin the Nog, The Magic Roundabout, Jamie and the magic tourch, James the cat.

Those programmes changed my life. Probably because they were all so heavily influenced by drugs.

The Clangers were the bloody seventies or something. My mom used to love them.

WTF?! Captain Planet . That was most famous mullet on telly!

Did you ever notice he never actually saved the planet, just left the politically correct ethnically mixed planeteers to do all the work.

I actually had captain planet for the commerdore 1200 amiga. that game was AWSOME. I think i threw it away, probably worth a small fortune on ebay now

Well, you have to remember they did only summon Captain Planet when they were in dire jeopardy, like they're in a really tough situation they can't handle so they need him to save them.

And I DO remember an episode where he like... used his amazing blowing powers to blow all the oil back into a leaking oil tanker in the sea and seal up the hole.

He saved the ocean that day.

Thank you, Captain Planet!!

An innocent cartoon thread has turned into a Captain Planet fanboy discussion.

^Oops lol.


Okay, back onto Bananaman... my favourite part of the show was always when he made the transformation, and like... the intro and everything.

I loved the music in the background. And the transformation looked awesome as well

I remember all those, as well as other old kids programmes like The Herbs, Trumpton, and so forth. We have some of those old Watch With Mother videos that I used to love as a kid, as well as a Herbs video and ones that my mum had made froom recording them off the TV.

^^I remember X-fire, it was on for a bit when I got home from school I think.
They had a team of paintballers set up against an army of henchmen and the occasional "boss", right? I seem to remember a thin storyline about aliens and clones as well...

Anyways, Bananaman was great! I went to school with a guy who looked just like little Eric.
