The Banana Splits in Hocus Pocus Park is a 1972 live-action/animated television film made by Hanna-Barbera featuring the characters from The Banana Splits television series. Mixing live action sequences shot at Kings Island amusement park in Cincinnati, Ohio with animation, the film follows the Banana Splits as they attempt to rescue a young girl who is kidnapped by a power-hungry witch.[1] Like many animated Hanna-Barbera productions of the 1970s, The Banana Splits in Hocus Pocus Park contained an inferior laugh track created by the studio.[2]

Hocus Pocus Park was first broadcast as an episode on the weekly program The ABC Saturday Superstar Movie on November 25, 1972 and continued to air sporadically well into the 2000s, via cable networks Cartoon Network and Boomerang, both of which also aired reruns of its parent series.[3]
