1. What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?

Ooh, a puzzle! I like puzzles! I'm going for handsome, irresistible, wonderful and... genius.

Sorry - I was looking for 3 words?

In that case, I'd like to add awesome as my third word

Okayyy, Bananaman. Here is your next question...

Bring it on!

2. What do you keep in your pockets?

The banana-suit doesn't have pockets because what you end up with is unsightly bulges. However, I do have a utility banana-belt where I always keep a banana-rang, an inflatable banana-raft, a banana-grapple, a spare banana and a 20 pence piece in case I need to use a public toilet. "Be prepared" - that's my motto. Especially for public toilets.

3. What's the first thing you can remember?

Looking back is so un-super. Because I get more and more super every day, my greatest memories are in the future. If you see what I mean.

4. What would you like to be?

I'd like to be just a teeny bit less handsome, so ordinary-looking people don't feel bad when they have to stand next to me. Still, someone's got to be literally the handsomest dude in the universe. I'm just lucky it's humble old me!

5. What’s the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you?

I don't get embarrassed. Rosy cheeks don't go with the whole blue-and-yellow thing I have going on.

6. Are you an optimist or a pessimist?


Yes, but which one?

That's right. You bet.

You don't know what those words mean, do you?

I do, I just choose not to... say... stuff... after you've said them... to me.

7. What is your biggest fear?

My biggest fear is running out of heroic feats to achieve. You know, when I've literally done everything. That would be sad.Now I feel like crying...Quick, ask me another question!

8. Who would you trust with your biggest secret?

I don't have any secrets. But if I did, I would tell them to Crow.Crow likes to think he's my sidekick, and I let him think that because I'm literally the nicest guy in the universe.

9. What's your most treasured possession?

Does my nose count? I'm very fond of it.

10. Do you have a pet?

Remember I was talking about Crow? He probably counts as my pet.

11. What's your favourite food?

Bananas, of course! I always feel super when I eat one! Don't tell Crow I said he was my pet.

12. What makes you laugh?

Everything makes me laugh because I'm literally the funniest man in the universe! I laugh at how funny I am, I laugh at how hilarious my jokes are, I even laugh when people say I've done something wrong. I mean, that's hilarious! How could I, Bananaman, ever do anything wrong? Ha-ha-ha! See? I'm laughing now!Seriously. You won't tell Crow, will you?

13. If you had to be stuck in a lift for 3 hours with one person, who would you like it to be?

Would the lift be going up and down all the time, or just stuck between floors?

Does it make a difference?

It might if they were prone to travel sickness

Okay, the lift isn't moving. Who do you want to spend the time with?

You know those guys in the overalls who come to fix broken lifts? I'd like to spend it with one of them.

You want to spend 3 hours stuck in a lift with a lift engineer?

Clever, huh? I bet no-one else got that question right!

14. If you had insomnia and couldn’t ever sleep, how would you fill the time?

I never sleep. How could I? I don't have banana-jamas!Note to self: invent some banana-jamas.

15. What is your greatest strength?

Gosh, that's a tough question. I think my greatest strength would have to be... my strength.

Okay, but apart from your actual strength... do you have any attributes that set you apart?


You don't know what 'attributes' means either, do you?

I do too. It's a doing word, right?

16. And your greatest weakness?

My sweetness is my weakness. I'm literally the sweetest guy in the universe!

17. Name 3 things you’re really good at...

I'm not really good at anything...Because I'm super at everything! 

18. And 3 things you’re really bad at?

Weren't you listening? I'm super at everything.

19. What would you like to be remembered for?

Hang on! I thought of something I'm bad at! I'm really bad at... being bad at things! Ha-ha!


Told you I was literally the funniest guy in the universe, didn't I? Ha!

Back to question 19 - what would you like to be remembered for?

I'd like to be remembered for being literally the most remembered guy in the universe

20. Finally, and this is a tough one - toast or cereal?

I love both, but if I really have to choose between them, my favourite cereal is waffles

What? Never mind! Thank goodness we're done! Er... I mean, thank you for your time, Bananaman!

No problem. It's been SUPER!
