This is 29, Acacia Road. And this is Eric, the schoolboy who leads an exciting double life. For when Eric eats a banana, an amazing transformation occurs. Eric is Bananaman. Ever alert for the call to action.
Here we have Eric, your average run of the mill pathetically weak schoolboy. Even though he is a pathetic puny , he has at least got a single brain-cell. But when Eric eats a banana, he trades whatever brains he has for pure muscle and becomes Bananaman.
This is your typical super-hero type story. A normal person, leading a normal life transforms into someone or something that is capable of saving the world from whatever disaster hides around the corner. Only difference is that normal super heros’ do have an IQ higher than their shoe size. If Bananaman’s IQ was any lower, he’d trip over it. But saying that, he does get the job done. Usually with the help of his side-kick Crow, who tries to breath a little bit of intelligence into the under-worked banana-brain.
Bananaman is an absolute classic. It’s just pure silliness, with some very poor (and very predictable) jokes thrown in for good measure.
