I DO remember that song. My mother never sang it to me, though. Which is probably a good thing; we kids already thought she was loony enough.:)

secret agent woman said...

Sure I remember it. But my mother sang things to us like "Froggie Went A-courtin'"

Susan at Stony River said...

LOL oh I remember it -- old enough to remember the chickie dancing with all the fruit on her head, telling you not to put your bananas in the re-frig-erator! Then they changed it to talk about how healthy they were or something. Great stuff!

Cindy said...

Hmmm. no, no way could I remember something so old. I'm too young.

*I'm a chiquita banana and I'm here to reveal the way you tell a great banana is by the peel...*

I don't even have to watch the commercial. I loved to sing this when I was a kid!

Thom said...

Oh no I'm showing my age as I do remember that also. Have a great Wednesday

Monkey Man said...

I remember the song, but hadn't seen this rendition. I love the Marx brothers in the background of the first scene. Classic.

hahaha, i remember that song. however, no banana green or flecked is good for me unless i want to wind up in anaphylactic shock.

and that stripping banana, how risque!

Mona said...

A banana song to looney tunes?

I never heard it...but now I have!

Mona said...

My mother never sang any songs to me, but my nanny did!

Boots said...

hahaa what a funny way to start my wednesday! Thanks, and I do remember the song but I never realized it was so detailed.

the walking man said...

Naw...I'm just a kid. I have no memory of this commercial.
