Hey kids! Put on your hap-happiest faces because the Banana Splits Show is about to begin!
~ Drooper's most famous quote.
Ain't it wonderful, Stevie? All of our friends are here! Now the show can go on forever, and ever, and ever!
~ Drooper to Stevie's corpse.
Drooper the Lion is one of the two main antagonists (alongside Fleegle) of the 2019 direct-to-video horror comedy film The Banana Splits Movie. He is a member of the The Banana Splits and one of the four mascots created by Karl that go on a rampage after their show was cancelled.
He was portrayed by Kori Clarke and voiced by Eric Bauza.
Drooper is a brown lion with a red nose and wearing a pair of yellow sunglasses, a hat like the other members, and white spats on his feet. He has a dark brown mane, and the tip of his tail is yellow. In the poster, he is supposed to have sharp teeth, but later unused in the film.
Drooper was a happy-go-lucky mascot like everyone else at the beginning. However, after he learned his show was cancelled and because of his faulty programming, he and his friends go on a rampage.
He first kills the co-star of the show, Stevie, with a plastic lollipop after being spitted by alcohol in the face at the dressing room.
Later, Drooper and Fleegle make Rebecca and Jonathan (who was already harmed before by Drooper) go on a slippery obstacle course. At the end, Drooper slams Rebecca in a face with a hammer, killing her.
Even later, Fleegle and Drooper make a "show" for the children they kidnapped, in which they set Stevie's corpse on fire and rip Andy, a worker, apart limb from limb.
At the end, the redeemed Snorky helps the children escape, while Beth, the mother of Harley and Austin, gets into a fight with Fleegle and Drooper. After Austin killed Fleegle, Drooper knocks out Austin and chokes Beth by a throat. Harley arrives and throws his mother a toy-like stick. Beth quotes "Banana Cadabra, b*tch" and sticks right into Drooper's mouth to the brain-like core, killing Drooper.
At the end, Poppy, now completely crazy after Thadd's death, takes the corpse of Drooper and the other remaining Banana Splits on the Banana Buggy, while taking the identity of the scrapped fifth Banana Split, Hooty.
