Are you tired of hearing about dancing bananas? I hope not because the following video seems to be the definitive answer to any questions about this fun frolicking fruit.
Yes, indeed! Bananas are funny! Could it be their sunny yellow colour, or their curved shape? Or perhaps it has something to do with its ressemblance to a certain part of the male anatomy (which will henceforth go unmentioned)?! **cough**
In 1992 a couple of famous Australian bananas became very popular television stars with children all over the world!
Named B1 and B2 they were collectively known as
Bananas in Pajamas. The show was inspired by a catchy tune written in the 1960s by the nephew of children's author Enid Blyton.
Here's a blast from the past with Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street and their Banana phone!
Perhaps this was the inspirationfor Raffi's Bananaphone song...
Rumours abound about Richard Armitage appearing as a dancing banana in his early stage career. Richard himself has admitted it in a BBC1 Interview with Scott Mills & Becky, May 4th 2010. Even his new Spooks co-star Sophia Myles has admitted in a recent interview that she had in fact, appeared in play with Richard in which he performed this unenviable role. So far no film clips have appeared of him wearing this costume. But that shouldn't stop his irrepressible fans from seeing him do a banana dance!
