Chibi Bananaman by capsicum Chibi Bananaman by capsicum
Bananaman is the coolest superhero ever. For those that don't know, Bananaman was a 5ish minute British cartoon about Eric, "the school boy that 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!"

Some old TV show themes came on my playlist and I suddenly had the urge to draw characters from them. Bananaman came firist but I also want to do characters from Superted, Babar, Gargoyles, Cities of Gold, and Trapdoor.

Enjoy.

Incidentally, I don't really like bananas much. I don't like how their smell/taste takes over everything within range.

Damn, that's a superhero I havent seen in years! I used to love watching those shorts as a kid, also reading his adventures in the old Dandy comics ;]

Bananaman originally appeared in a comic from the 1980's in the UK called Nutty, after the success of his strip the TV series was then made, after this Nutty sadly folded but Bananaman survived the merger with the Nutty and the Dandy and is still fighting bad guys, saving the day and being brainless in the Dandy as of today! :)

A brilliant piece here, certainly deserves all those faves! :D

He was originally a comic in Nutty, In my opinion the t.v shows were pretty bad. At least they are better than how he appears in the dandy now.. :(

Bananaman can't get anymore badass than being a tiddly chibi! I would so love to see an episode where he's kicking enemy ass at such a size XD! I love this, it brings back loads of memories and with lovely painterly artwork to boot.

Bananaman!

You know that this makes you pretty darn cool right?

Bananaman - the whole show was voiced by the Goodies...how can it not be brilliant?!

I have the DVDs - but I accidentally put them in the shipping to go to NZ, now I won't get to watch it for months... :(
