SY-FY made a slasher movie starting The Banana Splits and SHiTEs are rending their garments. PaulBTK kicks things off by being offended on behalf of Banana Splits fans, even though he never dig them personally. (Too edgy? Too ethnic? Both?)
But Silver Surfer takes the Cake in the maudlin boomer sweepstakes: "Last year, I had organized a Saturday morning, kids' show retro event and had planned to have available Banana Splits costumes (which are/were available from the U.K.) for people to wear and provide a photo opps for families. Alas, that would've been the last chance for such use. From this point forward, as others have stated, the brand is tainted, if not downright ruined. Google searches will inevitably lead to this intellectually bankrupt, soulless movie and the original Splits (along with the boomers and Gen X-ers childhood memories of them) will be lost to the dustbin of pop culture history.
Though I have seen other cultural touchstones sullied before, this one really hurts."

FredV (fake Ringo) is taking it very badly judging by his posts.
“And memorabilia from the original Splits series is still very collectible, I recently sold an assembled Aurora Splits model set for a decent price. Hard to say if there’ll still be much of a market if the Splits image is tarnished.”

I never heard of the show so I looked it up ... just when I didn’t think the SHiTEs could get more pathetic they top themselves. I guess I can understand their sadness as the original looks to be a way to lure unsuspecting children into a pedo hell while the new they fear will cause kids to be scared and run.

Banana Splits were better than The Monkees for sure. Barry White is way cooler than Neil Diamond. Plus I loved the Liz Phair cover of the theme song back in the day. I wouldn't really listen to them now. I just can't understand how grown men can get so upset over the artistic integrity of a fifty year old kiddie show.
