I....... I don't even know what this is....... but it's NOT the banana splits I grew up watching.

Basically, SyFy wanted to do a cheap version of Five Nights At Freddie's and instead of paying someone to design and build original characters, they got the rights for the Banana Splits because it was cheaper than that entire process and would have a faster turn around. That's why the Banana Splits are inexplicably robots now. And SOMEHOW, they got their movie done first (I think FNaF's is 2020-2021?).

That is literally all there is to this: SyFy is doing a cash grab, though this might have some meat to it at least.

Ah, damn. They are ruining the Banana Splits...:(

I still wear mismatched socks from time to time to troll people with an old Banana Splits joke.

"Those are not a pair of socks."

"Of course they are, I have another pair at home just like them."

The only way this has meat to it is if they play up the aspect that the show was a cult hit among college students when it came out. Boomer generation college students.

I kinda want to send this trailer to my mother, but I also don't want to kill her before her birthday.

Geez, I don't want to see what they'd do to HR Puffnstuff.

Aww, SyFy is Asylum now.

It was their true destiny all along!

I seriously hope the original creators and people who were involved with the original show will never see this. And if they do they get the opportunity to punch the makers of that what ever that is.

I wondering how much Sid and Marty Krofft know about it. On one hand, they're still making kid shows. On the other, they're said in articles that their shows messed with kids' heads and they want to have an "edge" that Disney wouldn't.

On the other hand, Sid and Marty Krofft never owned the rights to the Banana Splits because it was a Warner Bros. thing (who apparently didn't sell the rights and are partners on this, my bad) and all they did was design the costumes/characters. If they are upset or whatever, they haven't said anything... news about this has been out there since February.

Really, I think the bigger news here is that the current rumor is that this used the original pitch/script for Five Nights At Freddy's that Warner Brothers had.

What? The current writers for the current TV show just want to take the piss out of the beloved classic that's certainly more serious than it's current incarnation but maybe isn't as good as we remember?

It's almost like they resent the older fans for endlessly shitting on them for several seasons in a row, instead of the executives that keep throwing shitloads of money at them.

I kind of like Teen Titans Go. (As it's own entity and not in place of the other)
I... kind of do too? When it's good, it's GREAT, but when it's bad... it's just the worst. And that unevenness of episodes is kind of why it had the reputation it does; if all you catch are the booty shaking and fart joke episodes, you never see the good stuff. And the movie they put out? It's full of good stuff.

That's too bad. I like some of the songs. I guess if they strip it down too much it might lose much of the charm of the original.

Meh..I don't care about Mushu, honestly. If they could tell a very similar story, but updated for older, and more sophisticated audiences, I'd be happy.

Thing is, though, Hua Mulan is quite a famous legendary figure in Chinese folklore (for an equivalently famous character, think Robin Hood), so there are quite a few Mulan movies in China already, the most recent of which was in 2009. There are also several TV series about her. If I wanted to watch just a generic version of the Hua Mulan story on screen, I have plenty of other options already. I want this movie to be Disney's Mulan.
