Main Characters

  • Fleegle - A beagle, and the unofficial leader of the Banana Splits. He tries to keep things in order, but something is always happening in the Banana Pad to distract everyone from the Banana Splits band meetings.
  • Drooper - A lion, and Fleegle’s right hand man. Drooper is often the voice of reason, but the rest of the gang is seldom listening!
  • Bingo - A gorilla, a goof, and a bit of a mischief maker. Sometimes Bingo gets teased unintentionally by Fleegle, who tends to say bad things about monkeys.
  • Snorky - An elephant who doesn’t talk, but instead uses a horn on the end of his trunk to communicate. Snorky gets into sticky situations that the rest of the group has to solve.

Fun Facts

  • The original Banana Splits show was an hour long and included music videos, action adventure segments and cartoons. It ran on Saturday mornings in the late 1960s.
  • The show was created to help advertise Kellogg’s cereal.
  • A theme park called Banana Splitsville is being opened in the Splits’ honor at Hard Rock Park in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
  • Michael Stipe, singer for the band R.E.M., has reportedly said that the Banana Splits were a bigger influence on him and his music than the Beatles.
