• Show #16 (K-16 REV)
  • Original airdate: December 21, 1968 (according to copyright registration); May 31, 1969 (according to TV Guide listing)
  • Repeat airdate: May 31, 1969

(Note: Available information regarding the correct airdates for the last three episodes of Season 1 is confusing at best. Contemporary TV Guide listings cannot always be trusted to be fully accurate; that said, TV Guide listings indicate that The Banana Splits Adventure Hour was pre-empted the weeks of December 21 and December 28, 1968. For January 4, 1969, the synopsis of show #18 is listed, then repeated for the January 11, 1969 listing. But according to copyright registation records, show #16 was "published" December 21, 1968, and show #17 was "published" December 28, 1968. The date shown for show #18 is January 11, 1969. Based on TV Guide listings, it would appear that show #18 had been scheduled and was postponed, and show #17 aired January 4. This would further seem to indicate that show #16 finally aired for the first time during the first round of reruns on May 31, 1969. However, the TV Guide listing for that date identifies the episode as a rerun, and the above information conflicts with the official copyright records, which most likely are more reliable.)
