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. [1]

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. [2] As of 2021, most of the Archive.org links are broken, and are not currently supported after the transition from flash to HTML5.
