Great news for all of us 40+ year olds! Drooper, Fleegle, Snorky and Bingo are re-emerging from the mists of time to show us all how to have a good time. One of the most catchy theme tunes EVER signaled to all of us kids that it was time for crazy madcap fun. A new series from Warner Brothers and the Cartoon Network is due in September. Get your kids to watch and learn how it was done in the 1970s – it never did us any harm, did it?

Let’s have Catweazle, Top Cat, Here Come The Double Deckers, The Mouse Factory and Mr Ben too!

Love it,love it,love it-but why did you have to say 40 + year olds???? Can’t I be 12 again?

Thanks for your comment. Of course you can be 12 again – that time travel element is why we love these old shows! LOL

That brings back memories. I had a Banana Splits lunchbox in the first grade.

I’m 21 (though a +40 at heart) and remember watching these, that were obviously repeats. I am constantly humming the tune to people, describing “four blokes in larges animal suits with sunglasses on, running around a carossell in double speed”, to which they accordingly think I fell on my head as an infant.

Hi Diana,
Thanks for your comment. Some shows never die! That La La La tune is very addictive too. Can’t remember what age I was when I watched it, but I’m 48 now. No grandkids yet, thankfully, but I’m sure it will be a hit with them too.
Nice to *meet* you 🙂
