Have a banana!
9 August 2005 | by (Gosford, Australia) – See all my reviews

Bananaman is a great show. I must've watched each episode half a dozen times (ABC had great afternoon kids shows, but not a whole lot of variety). The way he ate bananas was great, I just wish they'd do a crossover with 'Bananas in Pyjamas', but they might have to put it on later at night.

I always wondered what would happen if Eric ate an apple or a watermelon. At least they wouldn't be quite as suggestive as a banana. I mean it's bad enough dressing up like a fruit...but a banana!!?? All up, good show, wish they still made it, but I suppose then the networks would have to show one less of those Nickelodeon shows. Give me a sexually ambiguous, man-boy bananaman anyday!
