Kimbe the White Lion Shock!!!

Just bought a Kimba DVD.......
for my child
..... and 'they' have messed with the soundtrack. I was all excited about singing along to Kimba thusly:

---------

Who lives down in deepest darkest Africa?
(Africa)
Who's the one who brought the jungle fame?
Who's the king of Animals in Africa?
Kimba the white lion is his name!

When we get in trouble and we're in a fight
Who's the one who just won't turn and run?
Who believes in doing good and doing right?
Kimba the white lion is the one!

--------
But instead I got smarmy crap. Apparently some 'talented' Canadians decided to rewrite the theme in 1993

Hi Fah, thats okay I wont hold you anymore responsible for the Kimba Scandal than Celine Dion and Bryan Adams. {Insert insult about Australian music here, preferably Savage Garden}

Hi Hewson, you remember Kimba? I think everyone else here is too young to know what Im talking about.

I remember watching Kimba, then the Banana Splits, Jungle ? Island, then Dr Who (with its very scary end theme music). What blissful afternoons they were.

Yeah I remember Kimba, if I recall the afternoon lineup (Boston's Channel 56 I think it was back then) was Kimba, Speed Racer, Banana Splits (what were there names...Beagle, Fleagle, Drooper and Snork or something).
Cass is rigth, it was "Danger Island" Uh Oh Chongo.

Banana Splits - I remember them, when I went to Disneyland I remember being so disappointed when I was told they weren't part of the Disney family.

What can I say about Australian music? What about the Wiggles, yes, you have a lot to answer for.

'Do the monkey...'

One banana, two banana, three banana, four
Four bananas make a bunch and so do many more.
Over hill and highway the banana buggies go
Comin' to bring you the Banana Split show

(CHORUS)
Tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la

Four banana, three banana, two banana, one
All bananas playin' in the bright warm sun.
Flippin' like a pancake, popping like a cork
Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper an' Snork

REPEAT CHORUS)

Two banana, four banana, one banana, three
Swingin' like a bunch on monkeys, hangin' from a tree.
Hey there, ev'rybody, won't you come along and see
How much like Banana Splits ev'ryone can be

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Makin up a mess of fun
Makin up a mess of fun
Happiness for ev'ryone
Tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la


(PS we used to have 2 banana buggies which we would ride down the sand dunes.)
