Netflix Now: American Banana Edition


That’s it. Netflix has gone too far. Not only is there not a lot to offer this week, but the selection available is horrible. You know why? Because it has Bananas in Pyjamas. Yes, you read that right. Not Bananas in Pajamas, the beloved TV show that aired Saturday mornings alongside The Moomins and Pokemon for children who grew up in certain islands and shouldn’t be judged just because they lived on rocks. No, this is Bananas in Pyjamas, a 2011 3D revamp of the show. Sure, it may have been “pyjamas” originally, but they were also creepy man-puppets originally and why must you remake all the things I loved.

Sure, there are a couple of things on there. There’s the very creepy-looking Sleeping Beauty, which focuses on a girl being felt up while unconscious for money. Apparently it’s not too great, but it’s a really interesting subject. I’m glad to have the chance to give it a look (or a feel) (it is funny because of the subject matter). There’s also The Passion of the Christ, which would have been a fitting Easter release. You could watch American Dad! if you wanted to, or look at the cute puppy featured in The Haunted.

Or you could watch Bananas in Pyjamas, which will not be nearly as creepy now that there aren’t people in huge banana suits. Hit the jump, but careful of the fruit.

New additions to Netflix Watch Instantly apply only to readers in the United States. For those in other parts of the world, your choices may vary.
