The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange is an American comedy television series based on the characters from the web series The Annoying Orange, created by Dane Boedigheimer and Spencer Grove, which is made for the television by Boedigheimer himself with Tom Sheppard for Cartoon Network. It was produced by Boedigheimer's company Annoying Orange, Inc., alongside management company The Collective and 14th Hour Productions. A preview aired on May 28, 2012, and the official premiere was on June 11, 2012.

The show ended on March 17, 2014 with two seasons and sixty episodes, with a total of thirty episodes per season.

Plot

The show follows the lives of Orange and his friends: the sarcastic Pear, the sassy Passion Fruit, the tiny Midget Apple, the eccentric Marshmallow, the unlucky Apple, the elderly Grandpa Lemon, and the sometimes antagonistic Grapefruit. The show diverges from the YouTube series in that the Fruit Gang live on a fruit stand in a supermarket called "Daneboe's" (a reference to the creator Dane Boedigheimer) rather than in Dane Boedigheimer's kitchen.

A reoccurring character from the Annoying Orange YouTube series called Nerville (played by internet personality Toby Turner) now runs the supermarket (mainly as the janitor), and is the only human who can talk to the fruit.

Characters

Main

  • Orange (voiced by Dane Boedigheimer) – The main protagonist of the series. He is annoying, obnoxious, and partial to terrible puns. But deep down, Orange always means well, even though his boredom often drags his friends into ridiculous adventures. The series shows another side of Orange that differs from his YouTube persona and casts him as a wacky hero.
  • Pear (voiced by Dane Boedigheimer) – Pear is Orange's best friend, and he often stands as the sole voice of reason in the fruit stand.
  • Passion Fruit (voiced by Justine Ezarik) – Often referred to as "Passion", she is adorable, pragmatic, and smart. She has a crush on Orange, which is no secret, except to Orange, who sometimes remains completely oblivious.
  • Midget Apple (voiced by Dane Boedigheimer) – An small apple with a scrappy demeanor. He prefers to be called "Little Apple", and a running gag is that he will correct anyone who calls him "Midget Apple".
  • Marshmallow (voiced by Dane Boedigheimer) – Marshmallow is a cute, eternally upbeat, and cheerful marshmallow.
  • Grapefruit (voiced by Robert Jennings) – Grapefruit is a hulking man-boy who thinks of himself as "large and in charge". He believes he is in a rivalry with Orange for Passion Fruit's affection, but she has no interest in him.
  • Apple (voiced by Harland Williams) – Apple is an insecure and pessimistic criticizer who rarely joins Orange's adventures for fear he will get bruised, though he usually ends up even worse off just by staying behind. There is a running gag where Apple gets killed in every episode, similar to Kenny McCormick from South Park.
  • Grandpa Lemon (voiced by Kevin Brueck) – Grandpa Lemon is the befuddled, elder statesman of the fruit stand. He thinks he is everybody's grandpa and has a habit of falling asleep mid-sentence.
  • Nerville (played by Toby Turner) – Nerville is an employee at Daneboes Fruit Store, where he lives, and is the only human who can talk to the fruits (as other humans dismiss it as insanity). He is a close friend to the fruits.

Supporting

  • Coconut (voiced by Tom Kenny) – Good-natured, but dim and hard-headed, Coconut is an occasional member of the Fruit Gang where he serves as the muscle.
  • Peach (voiced by Felicia Day) – Another member of the Fruit Gang, she is a peach who normally makes cameos.
  • Broccoli Alien Overlord (voiced by Rob Paulsen) – An evil alien broccoli, who speaks with an English accent, and serves as the main antagonist of the series. He is bent on enslaving Earth and becoming superior to fruit, though later his goals seem to be focused solely on destroying the Fruit Cart.
  • Guava (voiced by Tom Kenny) is a member of the Fruit Gang who got women's legs after dreaming about them.
  • Ginger (voiced by Felicia Day) – An organic ginger root who has a crush on Pear.
  • Elderly Banana (voiced by Tom Sheppard) - A very old and ripe banana that talks about scary stuff when he is with the Fruit Gang.
  • Big Rock Candy Monster (voiced by John DiMaggio) – A monster made entirely of rock candy and a native of the planet Marshmalia. Upset because marshmallows took their place in desserts, he swore revenge against them. After his initial appearance, he becomes a reoccurring character. He has also appeared in the Annoying Orange YouTube channel in a Gangnam Style parody video.

Special guest stars

Cancellation

On December 5, 2014, Boedigheimer publicly confirmed the cancellation of the series on his webseries, Daneboe Exposed.

On April 24, 2015, Boedigheimer claimed that one of the main cause of the series cancellation was the shutdown of his studio, due to Collective Digital Studio closing their film and television division, and subsequently Collective was acquired by ex-Kirch media company ProSiebenSat.1 Media.
