    If you've seen the Sandy Duncan episode of TMS, you'll understand. What I want to know is...

    What exactly is the "Banana Sketch"?

    All we know fersure is it starts off with, "Hey these two bananas are walking down the street..." The rest of it is unknown.

    As Bill points, the whole joke was never told onscreen. All we know is that these two bananas are walking down and the street and one of them says to the other...

    You never heard of The Banana Sketch! Well I... It's just... (walks off laughing unable to describe)

    Seriously, I'm surprised it took so long for someone to do that, like Beau it was the first thing I thought of saying when I read the first post in this thread

    I agree. I just didn't want to say it out of fear of being snarky or something. :concern: Someone HAD to go there though.

    Which do you use? A green banana or a yellow one?

    Oh yes there is.

    These two bananas are walking down the street and one of them says to the other "Hey. How would you like to go hang out at the tavern for awhile with me?"
    But the other one says "Thanks very much but unfortunately my wife is expecting me home soon to get ready to take her out to see a movie. I'd better split"
    WOCKA WOCKA WOCKA :o :o :o

    Incidentally I prefer to tell it with yellow bananas rather than green ones. Yellow ones are so nice and beautiful. It works best with them. :D

    So my guess is Gags/banana sketch is a Jack Burns creation.

    Okay, so maybe I'll ask him what the Banana Sketch is...
