It continues. Apparently.

Cartoon prompt

For some reason, which I can’t fathom even at this distance in time, my mother didn’t really approve of children’s television. Technically we weren’t allowed to watch it. This means my experiences of children’s TV were furtive, illicit affairs. My older brother was the sneaky one, taking charge of matters when Mum wasn’t looking and, of course, choosing the channel. I was an almost-innocent bystander, enjoying the fruits of his disobedience, but controlling nothing.

Which may tell you a lot, in fact, about the person I turned out to be.

All that said, I think I’m going to have to go with Bananaman. I don’t know about the boy/man/banana himself, or even particularly the show. I think perhaps it’s just the concept that you can eat a banana and become a radically different, stronger, braver person. Beats spinach, anyway.
