This song, which had become a regular item on Play School , became the theme of the new series. The main characters are two anthropomorphic bananas named B1 and B2. The bananas, the teddies and Rat in a Hat all live in the same neighbourhood, a cul-de-sac called "Cuddles Avenue".
The bananas live next to the beach and serve as beach patrol. The teddies live next to and look after the park. Rat in a Hat works and lives at the community store.
The characters enjoy eating "munchy honeycakes" and "yellow jelly". The characters were inspired by a song written for children by British composer Carey Blyton nephew of renowned children's author Enid Blyton. The jaunty song describes an unspecified number of bananas in pyjamas chasing teddy bears, with a slight twist at the end where a musical sting emphasises that the bananas like to "catch them unawares".
The song was shown on the Australian version of Play School for many years accompanied by an animation depicting pairs of bananas in blue-and-white striped pyjamas. This led to a "banana" plush toy being created as part of the "toy cast", which formed the basis of the physical appearance of B1 and B2.
Two of the bear characters, Amy and Morgan, are named after Helena Harris's children. The show was performed using human actors in elaborate costumes, in the style of the British Tweenies and Teletubbies.
In the show's early days, the voices of the bananas were provided by the same actors as were inside the costume, but the original actors eventually gave up that aspect of the show and substitutes manned the hot, stuffy costumes. The show aired new episodes from its debut to its eventual run in syndication in The show aired approximately three hundred episodes as well as four specials. Its debut in the United States was in It made videos and other media from to A toy line, developed by TOMY, debuted in It contains new songs, stories, and characters, including Topsy the cheeky kangaroo, Charlie the inventive monkey and Bernard the wise old dog.
