Going Bananas title

Going Bananas is a live-action superhero comedy show produced by Hanna-Barbera. It ran from September to December 1984 on NBC.

Plot

Roxana Banana is an orangutan that escaped from the zoo and was adopted by the Cole family. One night, a mysterious spaceship comes down from the sky and endows Roxana with super powers via a lightning bolt. Roxana is pursued by two crooks who want to use her super powers for their own ill will, but Roxana's outdodging them with her powers, as well as the predicaments she creates for the Coles, provides much of the comedy for this series.

Show add-ons

Also included was "Jungle Jukebox", a takeoff on the then-popular music videos using popular songs with animals in the visuals, as well as parodies of then-current TV shows and commercials using animals.
