Mystery Island was the lone live-action segment on the Banana Splits clone, The Skatebirds.

Based on its Banana Splits predecessor, Danger IslandMystery Island dealt with people stranded on a remote island being chased by evil villain Dr Strange (Michael Kermoyan).


Strange wanted P.O.P.S (a robot), to use in his quest for world domination. To get P.O.P.S, Strange caused the plane carrying the robot to crash land on his island.

The rest of the series dealt with Strange trying to capture the robot while the crew of the plane – pilot Chuck Kelly (Stephen Parr) and Sue (Lynn Marie Johnston) and Sandy (Larry Volk) Corwin – tried to evade Strange and get back home.
