The obligatory ‘What the HELL, Syfy?’ Banana Splits trailer.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: my first reaction to a Banana Splits horror flick came right out of Dark Humor. But there are people who are legitimately upset about this, and I can’t say that they’re wrong, either. Lots of people like to say that a particular movie is wrecking your childhood, but very few of those flicks are actually trying to do that:

It’s absolutely trying to [expletive deleted] up your head, man. What is amazing here is that the suits let them! That’s the actual [expletive deleted] IP, there! Somebody at Warner actually heard the pitch and green-lit it, thus leading to the picture above of a Hanna-Barbera icon, splattered with human blood.

Get whoever managed this into the State Department, friends. He or she could sell ice to the Eskimos.

    I grew up without cable, and have only vague memories of occasionally seeing bits and pieces of the show at friend’s houses.
    I’m still horrified and disgusted.

    In a grand understatement, this is not going to go over well.
    I knew a lot of latchkey kids (now grown up, obviously) who had a strong emotional attachment to the series. I showed one of them the trailer, and now feel guilty from just knowing I exposed them to something that caused such an emotional reaction.
