Description[edit | edit source]
Go Bananas! With Tony Simiano was a 2001 flash game show that was hosted on Nick.com. The show was an early example of an interactive flash game and used a blend of digital illustration and real-life photos of animals and humans to portray the host and contestants.
The show's titular host, a John Travolta-esque chimpanzee, would introduce (human) contestants and have them play a game unique to the contestant. The game show was a spinoff of a 1998 flash game - “Disco Chimp” - that featured Tony Simiano, which was also hosted by Nick.com. “Disco Chimp” proved to be a popular edition to the website, and as such, 13 episodes of "Go Bananas" were commissioned. 
The show's run was short-lived, lasting only 1 season and producing 13 episodes.
Status[edit | edit source]
Only 2 of the show's 13 episodes have been recovered. An inquiry on the r/LostMedia subreddit yielded episodes 1 and 12 (both .swf files) through an Internet Archive search of Nick.com.  As of 2021, most of the Archive.org links are broken, and are not currently supported after the transition from flash to HTML5.
