Trivia

  • This is the first Hanna-Barbera movie that is a horror/thriller.
  • It is the first horror movie adapted from a preexisting children's property.
  • The movie's script was allegedly originally made for the upcoming Five Nights at Freddy's movie, which would explain why the movie's version of The Banana Splits are robots instead of actors in costumes. The script was turned into The Banana Splits Movie because Blumhouse got the rights to the FNAF movie, and Scott Cawthon didn't like the original script, saying that he wanted more in the FNAF movie than a typical setting where plush toys come to life.
  • The costumes themselves are reused costumes from The Banana Splits remake, but have slight upgrades on their appearance. For example, Drooper has bigger eyes.
  • Not counting the original unreleased version of Scooby-Doo, this is the first Hanna-Barbera movie to be given an R rating by the MPAA, due to the gory death scenes in the movie.
    • As Scooby-Doo was initially aiming for a PG-13 rating (before it was decided to go with a family-friendly PG rating after receiving an unexpected R rating when submitting the film), The Banana Splits Movie is different as it was planned to be R-rated from the start.
