Hanna-Barbera's 'The Banana Splits' to return as a horror movie

Doesn't take a lot for me to imagine that creepy dancing Fleegle killing folks.

Bloody Disgusting:

In a bizarre move that was surely inspired by the success of Five Nights at Freddy's, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Syfy are bringing back the characters from Hanna-Barbera's variety program "The Banana Splits Adventure Hour" for… a horror movie?!

As reported by Deadline, kid-friendly (originally, at least) animal characters Bingo, Fleegle, Drooper and Snorky will return in an original movie that's set to "premiere this year from Blue Ribbon Content, Warner Bros Television Group's digital studio, via a Warner Bros. Home Entertainment release that will be followed by the television debut on Syfy."

In the upcoming horror thriller, "A boy named Harley and his family (brother Austin, mother Beth, and father Mitch) attend a taping of The Banana Splits TV show, which is supposed to be a fun-filled birthday for young Harley and business as usual for Rebecca, the producer of the series. But things take an unexpected turn — and the body count quickly rises. Can Harley, his mom and their new pals safely escape?"
