This is Eric, when he eats a banana..
10 August 2002 | by (Medford, MA.) – See all my reviews

Growing up in the 80's, I used to watch this cartoon which was so stupid I laughed every time it was on. I loved the begining and end theme songs so much that after the show I used to whistle it because I couldn't get it out of my head. Favorite quote: "This banana is loaded and I wont hesitate to use it". Funny cartoon.
