Classic Zany British Concoction.
6 June 2003 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

"This is 29, Acacia Road. And this is Eric, the schoolboy who leads an exciting double life. For when Eric eats a banana, an amazing transformation occurs. Eric is Bananaman."

Nostalgic cartoon from the 80's which I watched religiously for some reason, voiced by members of "The Goodies" (I've only just now discovered that!). The theme tune, the opening speech, the nutty one liners and the loveable but inept 'Bananaman'all bring back cool childhood telly memories.
