Noooooo! NOT THE BANANA SPLITS! We loved the “H.R. Pufnstuf” and the Banana Splits growing up, and yes we were not happy when the show got cancelled back in the day, but someone thought it would be cool if Bingo, Drooper, Snorky, and Fleegle turned into killers.
Now, check out the new trailer as the Banana Splits Gets Bloody Horror Twist…
CelebNMovies247.com has the first trailer for The Banana Splits movie and it’s probably not what anyone was expecting.
We first got wind that the children’s icons The Banana Splits were getting a reboot in the form of a new movie back in February, but “NOT LIKE THIS, NOT LIKE THIS”!
That was welcome news, but it came with something of a twist. At the time, it was heavily implied that this was, strangely, going to be a horror-themed take on the 60s TV series. This trailer serves as stone-cold proof of that as things get extra bloody in this R-rated reboot that may very well be the most bizarre thing coming our way this year.
Things get weird right before the episode goes live with an audience filled with children and their parents. The original costumed characters Bingo, Fleegle, Snorky and Drooper appear on the screen, it’s clear not all is right in this world. Once Drooper overhears that the show is cancelled, it sends the Banana Splits into something of murderous rage. This should have been done as a parody because it looks it might come off just dumb.
Anyways, the MPAA has officially handed down an R-rating to this bizarre reboot for its use of horror, violence and gore. That’s all on display here.
