Featuring an abundance of guest stars, including Tim Curry (The Rocky Horror Picture Show) and the late Michael Clarke Duncan (The Green Mile), the hilarious YouTube sensation Annoying Orange made its television debut on Cartoon Network in 2012, drawing more than 2.6 million viewers and consistently winning its time slot in key demos. With more than 1.3 billion views, Annoying Orange has become a true pop culture phenomenon.* The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange: Escape From The Kitchen follows Annoying Orange and his band of produce buddies as they navigate the time-space continuum in their magical fruit cart. From the Prehistoric Era to Colonial Times, Orange and the rest of the crew are dropped into random adventures and forced to squeeze their way out.

The 411 by Maria, Handsome and Goddess:
I don't know if we loved this show the very first time we watched it but we are die hard fans for the past 10 months. We found the Annoying Orange on You Tube last year and thought; what the.....h-e-c-k? As strange as we thought it was, we couldn't stop watching. We really are not sure why these creepy faced fruits and veggies are popular but they are.
The show focuses on Orange and his friends which include Marshmallow, Pear, Grandpa Lemon and others. While the characters are mostly obnoxious, we often find ourselves laughing out loud at their craziness. It is very witty and my husband and I don't mind watching with the kids in the least.
While some found this offensive in the beginning due to the name calling; "you're such an Apple" says one fruit to the apple. It really is just funny and has the Dove Foundation Family seal of approval!
