The Banana Splits in Hocus Pocus Park (1972)
original animation model drawings
pencil on 10.5" x 19.5" animation sheet, drawing image size: 8.25" x 15.5"
This original model drawing of Snorky, Bingo, Fleegle and Drooper, all four members of the animal character group, The Banana Splits, was created at the Hanna-Barbera Studio as a model of the four stars in their live-action and animated film that was first broadcast on November 25, 1972. In 1968 Hanna-Barbera launched its first show to combine live-action and animation: The Banana Splits Adventure Hour. It ran two seasons during which The Banana Splits appeared only in live-action segments while the remainder of the show presented cartoon series such as The Three Musketeers and The Arabian Knights. The Banana Splits first appeared as animated characters in The Banana Splits in Hocus Pocus Park. This drawing represents a redesign of the characters for animation, most particularly as regards Snorky. The special was filmed at Kings Island amusement park in Cincinnati, Ohio. The art is titled "'Banana Splits' Lineup," each is named beneath the image, "© 1970 Hanna Barbera Prods., Inc." is written next to the title, and "OK for ink / W.I." is written in red pencil. The art is shown below in two complete images and two details.
