Syndicated versions were cut down to half hour slots and renamed 'The Banana Splits & Friends Show'. In this version, The Three Musketeers and Arabian Knights would appear on alternate episodes (odds and evens respectively). Danger Island would also be cut down from 10mins to 5mins, with only the segments on the even numbered episodes having the true cliffhanger (the odd numbered ones would sometimes stop at an appropriate moment or just end abruptly). Micro Ventures would also be slotted in if time permitted on select episodes in the latter part of the run. It was these episodes that were broadcast on Cartoon Network and released on DVD by Warner. Guild Home Video had released four cassettes in the UK in the early 80s each featuring an omnibus of these editions, but without the Danger Island sequences. See more »
I really loved this show when I was kid, because it exposed me to all kinds of genres of story... pirates, musketeers, etc. It is a great all-around show and I hope that Cartoon Network brings it back more often in re-runs (I have seen it on Saturday Morning Flashback with my step-son several times).
I wish that there were more shows like this one the air for kids... innocuous little adventure shows with a certain innocence to them.
