Stupid, but well-meaning and super-strong super-hero, Bananaman gets his strength from eating bananas. Before he eats a banana, Bananaman is a young boy called Eric who is keen to keep his alter-ego a secret. His best friend is a crow who brings bananas to Eric (or Bananaman) when they are needed for extra strength. Bananaman is always ready to fight the baddies.

        This show used to piss me off when I first saw it but it must've grown on me because I missed it when it wasn't on anymore.

          My daughters and I have this joke- If you can't think of anything funny to say, just say 'banana'! and it's good for a laugh. Today, my 6 year old made a joke when I was ironing, and followed it with 'banana!' I had a flashback in the garage doorway....I went to my wife and said she reminded me of this show that I vaguely remembered and I remember no one else thought it was funny, but I thought it was hilarious! I said I thought it was called Bananaman. We looked it up on the net and I was so proud to see I was right, and someone else remembered it, too! She was stationed in Japan in the 80's, so she doesn't remember anything 'American' from then. This just legitimized my stories of 'Danger Mouse', You Can't Do That on Television, and life before Nick at Nite. Nick ended at 8:00p.m. but ROCK'D after 6:00!

                  My brother and I used to watch this on Nickelodeon I believe. Along with Danger Mouse and something else... Maybe the Raccoons or was that Disney? Anyhow, I remember this cartoon.

                      I'd like to see the later version of the intro here if possible-- it had a much more dramatic voice narration.

                      The show was yet another example of understated British humor. I remember Bananaman playing a game of cricket with himself. It's rather amusing, though, that Brits can't stand really ripe bananas (so blackened bananas are out of the question), so these cartoon bananas are the barely ripe variety, all yellow and void of black spots.

                        It looks sorta weird that a kid turns into a full-grown man in a suit during the transformation. Also, Eric eats weirdly. I mean, look at his cheeks when he eats the banana.

                          I remember Bananaman! But there wasn't much to it. I agree that it was a time filler between other cartoons but it wasn't too bad. You would certainly need only one DVD for the whole series.

                                I have never seen this series before but I love the intro, it looks funny.
