'Arrested Development' icon Mr. Banana Grabber: Still making mischief after all these years

Posted on


Banana_grabberJust catching up on my National Food and Drink News… I suspect that the 17-year-old who concealed a banana under his T-shirt while attempting to rob an Internet cafe could be a direct relation to the tertiary Arrested Development character Mr. Banana Grabber (who made a sneaky cameo in a recent episode of Sit Down, Shut Up). According to TV law, the North Carolina teenager is now the official property of G.O.B. Bluth, who holds the rights to “Mr. Banana Grabber, Baby Banana Grabber, and any other Banana Grabber family character that might emanate therefrom.” But remember: Should this ridiculous story become a movie, Michael Bluth retains the animation rights.
