The annoying orange

The Annoying Orange is a comedy web series whose first episode was uploaded on October 9, 2009. By June 2010, the Annoying Orange videos had amassed more than 200 million views on YouTube. When the first Annoying Orange episode reached 11 million views from its channel, the author was inspired to make an Annoying Orange YouTube Channel. As of October 10, 2010, the channel is ranked as the 10th most subscribed channel of all, and 61st most viewed of all time. In total there are over one million subscribers to the YouTube channel, “realannoyingorange”.

The show features a talking orange called Orange. Orange heckles other fruits, vegetables, or nearby animated objects, with puns and laughter. Orange lives on a kitchen counter, which he shares with his best friend Pear. To animate the characters the author will superimpose their voice-actor’s eyes (or more accurately, one of their eyes duplicated) and mouth on the object they are playing. You can see here the first three videos from the series with Spanish subtitles.

In the second episode, Orange meets Pumpkin (or Plumpkin, as Orange annoyingly remarks; plump stands for overweight).

And in the next one, Orange confuses Tomato with his old friend Apple.
