Cult children's television show from Hanna-Barbera Productions, The Banana Splits Adventure Hour (1968-1970) under the appropriate yet misleading title of The Banana Splits Movie(2019) has received its 2019 Comic Con debut.

Let's ruin other people's (or our own) childhoods and discuss this sinister poll over here.
