    The Banana Splits Press Kit (Hanna-Barbera, 1968). This fan favorite live-action kids show premiered in the fall of 1968 and was a huge hit for ABC with costumes and sets designed by Sid and Marty Krofft. It featured the characters of Fleegle, Bingo, Snorky, and Drooper in an hour-long variety show setting. The first season was directed by Richard Donner of Superman fame. This is the original cover page proof of the studio press kit for this show. It comes with a matching black and white 8" x 10" glossy photo. Also in this lot are four original 8" x 10" press photos and attached press releases providing information on friends of the Banana Splits -- Rockne Tarkington, Kathy O'Dare, and Ronne Troup. This is one of the rarest groups of Banana Splits ephemera we have come across. Original Press Kit proof is printed on cardboard measuring 13.5" x 10.5". A crease runs from side to side near the middle. All other items show minor handling and edge wear. Condition is Good.
