catch them unawares

Marc & Kim were giving me a little bit of a hard time this morning. They called me "Mr. Obscure" when I mentioned a children's TV show they hadn't heard of. It's an Australian show called "Bananas In Pajamas" and it was on in the U.S. during the '90s. I always thought that whoever created the show must have been on some hallucinogenic drug at the time. B1 and B2 are two giant talking bananas who play pranks on teddy bears. But they do have a catchy theme song. Anyone else ever heard of them?

that was the best drug-induced show there was. it's right up there with teletubbies and alice in wonderland.

Bananas in pajamas are chasing teddy catch them unaware.
Don't remember every word, but my son (now 10) Loved B1 & B2. I may even have some videos if Eli would like to see them! Much better than Barney!!!!

Thanks for writing Stephanie. I'm not Eli's parent but I will pass your comment along to Kim & Ralph.

Thankfully, my kids did not insist on watching it daily or I would have needed some kind of drug to get through the day. It never leaves you. I can still hear it in my head. Make it go away!

i worked with a guy whose kids LOVED the show, had the dolls, and called them nanas in jamas.
marc and kim are just unaware, you're not that obscure.
