Bananas in Pyjamas have been a feature of Australian television for many, many years. I think the song was first heard around 1972. If you haven’t heard of them, here is the original stair descent on Play School on ABC television.
Since that time the bananas have had a series of their own and a stage show as well.
Bananas in pyjamas. Her delight at having these pyjamas is obvious. The photo reminded me of Christmas when her elder sisters wore the same pyjamas several years ago. Apparently the pyjamas have been passed on to the cousins and then they came back again when our granddaughter was the size for wearing them.
One of the original bananas with some of the Playschool hosts.You can read a little about the composer of the song which was first used by Playschool in 1973.

Adorable. And brought back lots of happy memories.
I think Playschool formed such a part of most Australian families.
Yes it did
This has brought back many happy memories. Thank you!
I think it is lovely how something my children loved to watch can still be watched by my grandchildren.
Such a great song, thank you. 🙂 I’d be chuffed with pyjamas like that, too.
