Alternate Versions

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 »

User Reviews

Fond early memories...
19 November 2000 | by gazzo-2See all my reviews

You don't Know how big this was back in the day...Heck I used to watch this ALL the time. Loved the Splits, the Musketeers Toons and their music. It was very funny. Haven't seen it much since but that's fine, it was meant for the 6 year old mind-set and it's in that frame of reference that it belongs.

*** outta ****.
