"Banana Formula" is the fifth story arc from the fourth season of Rocky and Bullwinkle (originally titled The Bullwinkle Show). It was broadcast on NBC during the 1962-63 television season.


Given an ambiguous order from Fearless Leader which simply states "Steal formula," Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale stumble upon a new sound-suppressed explosive named "Hush-a-Bomb" (pronounced "Hush-a-Boom"), but lose the formula when they foolishly inscribe it on a banana that Bullwinkle J. Moose promptly devours.
