Warner Bros. has updated the show to feature new comedy sketches and music videos on Cartoon Network and Boomerang as part of a cross-platform plan to relaunch the property including a new website, DVDs, live entertainment and music CDs.

"Everything that made The Banana Splits hugely popular in the ’60s is back, including the group’s terrific humor and hit music,” said Jordan Sollitto, WBCP’s executive vice president for new business initiatives and international licensing.

"We take great pride in having carefully updated the look and feel of the original show for today’s kids while retaining all of the elements that made the original Banana Splits such a hit."

The series' characters will be featured in a wide range of merchandise, including toys, games, books and apparel.

The Banana Splits are a costumed rock band made up of Fleegle (a dog), Drooper (a lion), Bingo (a gorilla) and Snorky (an elephant) who hang out in their Banana Pad while playing music and telling jokes.
