Potassium Infusion
5 October 1999 | by (Boulder, Co) – See all my reviews

I was only ever given the chance to see Bananaman if an episode of Danger Mouse happen to run a few minute short... Nevertheless it is one of my favorite childhood TV experiences. The absurdities present throughout every situation and character and cell are simply a delight. It never tries to take itself seriously, but doesn't resort to the inane in its attempt to entertain. Bananaman is a quite little show that, as far as I know, doesn't have a single dissenting viewer... we all loved Bananaman... all of us.
