Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits: Wait 'Til Tomorrow (1968)

One of the coolest things about the Banana Splits Adventure Hour were the musical numbers shoehorned into the show in between segments. While the vocalists were never properly credited, we do know that some true talents, such as Gene Pitney & Barry White, wrote many of the songs for the show. "Wait 'Til Tomorrow" is a haunting ballad that is also a personal favorite of mine, dating back to when I watched the syndicated reruns of Splits in the 70's. The vocals will suggest that maybe Gary Puckett (Union Gap) was the singer, but that's not the case. Too bad the lone Splits album hasn't yet been released on CD. Anyway, here's a music video, shot in San Francisco, featuring Bingo, Drooper, Fleegle, & Snorky, and uploaded by pmanis09 to YouTube:
