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.
Real name: Eric Twinge.
Eric is your average, run of the mile,pathetically weak schoolboy. But when he eats a banana, he transforms into a superhero Bananaman.
Powers: Superstrong (he has the strenght of "twenty big men"), able to fly (well, more like swim throught the air), invulnerable.
Real name: Eric Twinge
Eric is Bananaman. No metter how scrawny he looks, he's always only one bite of a banana away from turning into a musclebound superhero!
Crow's the brains of the team- lucky for the team when hen ou realise haw daft Bananaman is..
Crow is great f offering advice or coming up with a plan when Bananaman finds himself in a tricky situation.
Fiona is a newsreader based on Selina Scott.
Fiona is the news reader that Bananaman has got a crush on and is called the 'Sweetheart of the Airwaves.
She thinks Bananaman is 'Mr Wonderful' and has even invited him to appear on her own TV Show called 'Memory Lane'.
He's an Irish Police Chief, who has a police light in his hat (strange fellow!).
He's always on the phone asking Eric to get in touch with Bananaman, but I'm still trying to workout why he thinks a school boy is his link to Bananaman.
As you can see, he is a rather portly fellow and from what I can see, it's all the eating he keeps doing (massive sandwiches etc)
He is Bananaman's number one enemy and it always striving for world domination. He's a short fellow, that really needs to see an anger management councillor. But he does have a gentler side as he speaks a bit childish when talking to women, as if he is still talking to his nanny (the wuss!)
Dr Gloom works out of his surgery, which is a creepy house on hangman's hill, which amazingly looks like a castle from the inside.
He is helping General Blight take over the world, well, that's what the General things. In reality if General Blight succeeded than he would then he would forcibly take control from him.
nitially he wanted Bananaman to give them the location of all Military Installations and Chinese Takeaways before they invade, but again this plan ultimately failed
He was created by Dr Gloom and has muscles when no other man has them (in his feet!). He has a country bumkin accent and is really a bad apple that is rotten to the core.
She is the Deadliest assassin of all time and is General Blight's Hit Lady. She carries a Walkie-Talkie to speak with the General, but she confuses the hell out of him when she speaks using CBI handles.
She even had the privilege to run Bananaman over in a steam roller after she knitted him a sleeveless jumper. But his spirit wasn't flattened (groan!) and he bounced right back to defeat her.
He flies around in his lighter than air ship (which can also go underwater), by controlling the weather and causing havoc.He has a Freeze Gun and he controls Ice Station Zero, which is like a giant storage battery. It draws cold energy from the polar ice and snow. He then converts the cold energy to bad weather by radio impulse to his control panel.
The complete series of Bananaman has been released on DVD on region 2. The set is OOP sadly.
This is 29 Acacia Road...
And this is Eric - the school boy who leads an amazing double life...
For when Eric eats a banana, an amazing transformation occurs...
Eric is Bananaman!
Ever alert for the call to action!
