Harley Williams is a huge fan of The Banana Splits, a successful children’s television series featuring four animatronic characters — Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper, and Snorky — along with their human co-star Stevie. On his birthday, Harley’s mother Beth and his stepfather Mitch take him to a live taping to the show at Taft Studios with his brother Austin and his classmate Zoe. Arriving, the family meets the show’s hostess Paige and her assistant Doug, fan couple Thadd and Poppy, aspiring young performer Parker with her father Jonathan, and security guard Sal.
As the taping is getting ready, the studio’s new vice president of programming Andy informs the show’s producer Rebecca that he is canceling the show after the recording. The Banana Splits’ software updates go haywire upon learning this, with Bingo kidnapping Andy while Drooper thrusts a prop lollipop down Stevie’s throat, killing him. Outside the studio, Beth learns Mitch is cheating on her with his secretary. As she returns to the studio, Mitch finds Sal’s decapitated corpse and is then chased and run over by Snorky driving the Banana Buggy.
Meanwhile, Poppy accepts Thadd’s marriage proposal while blogging the backstage before Fleegle arrives and murders Thadd by sawing him in half. Fleegle leaves Poppy when he hears Harley and Zoe looking for Snorky, taking the children to the workshop. He traps them with Parker, who Bingo kidnapped after Jonathan’s face was burned by Drooper when they were looking for Andy for his daughter’s audition.
Beth, Austin, Paige, and Rebecca learn about the Banana Splits’ carnage after finding a seriously injured Jonathan. While Paige finds the phones disconnected and the confiscated cells destroyed, Beth takes out Bingo before she and Austin find Poppy and convince her to join them. Meanwhile, Harley, Zoe, and Parker meet the Banana Splits’ creator Karl, who considers his creations’ actions justified by the show’s cancellation and is conflicted over freeing the children. Drooper brings Bingo to Karl for repair, causing Karl to get distracted enough for the kids to escape and lock him in his own cell while fleeing. At the same time, Rebecca and Jonathan are forced to participate in the show’s obstacle course, with Jonathan stabbed to death by Fleegle in the back with a key while Rebecca wins before Drooper smashes her face with a giant hammer.
