Tra-La-Frickin-La, Dammit

The Banana Splits / The Beagles

Anyone watch the Banana Splits when you were shorter and lived near the water? Good ass show, that one. Big old stuffed puppets. I think some sort of Tom Sawyer thing. Some Monkees like singin and dancin. I'd love to see it in syndication to see if I still like it (some of those Sid and Marty shows should have stayed in memory, so maybe this one should, too).

I haven't flexed this muscle much on the the blog, but I'm a big lover of the bubble gum, and this is the bubblelicious shite. Try to get TraLaLa LaLaLaLa LaLaLa LaLaLaLa (that's 1 tra and 13 las) out of your head once it gets in, 'cause it's catchy like syphilis.

Extra credit for any listener who can dicipher the names of the 4 splits. I think the last one might be snork, but who the hell can tell.

The Beagles? Who the hell cares?

There was Drooper the skinny lion lookng one, Fleagle was a dog, Bingo had a dopey looking grin, not sure of his origin but he was a drumming fiend and Snorky was the one with the trunk and Harpo 'no speakies' policy. Thanks for the upload...I also loved the theme from Chattanooga Cats.

Thanks for this. The Beagles tracks are unbelievably great. Tracks 17-26 are the beagles and the rest is the banana splits in case anyone is having trouble tagging.

Flippin like a pancake, poppin like a cork /
Fleagle, Bingo, Drooper and Snork.

I never understood why Bob Marley sings the "Tra-La-La" part of this song in "Buffalo Soldier"...

Re up pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee and thanks so much. I just found your blog today. Edward Gorey wrote a jazz/rock CD? Who knew!?

I heard that Don "The Archies" Kirschner and Barry White were the primary songwriters for the Banana Splits, and that Barry did a lot of keyboard duty.

I can't find the files - too late I guess. Is "I Was The Very First Kid On My Block With A Broken Heart" on it?
