Despite the show's negative critical reception, the show's popularity after its first episode led to it becoming the subject of a TV series, a video game, a range of toys, backpacks, couches, pillows, blankets, lunchboxes, drink bottles, mattresses, towels and a T-shirt line. Other accessories, such as costumes of the series' characters, have also appeared on the market for the company.

Since its inception, the Annoying Orange YouTube channel has amassed over 5 million subscribers.[1]

PlotEdit

The show is centered on Orange (voiced by Dane Boedigheimer), who resides on a fruit cart display in a kitchen with other objects such as his best friend, Pear, an irritable Bartlett pear (also voiced by Boedigheimer). Other fruits include Passion, a sensible passion fruit and Orange's love interest played by iJustine, an arrogant grapefruit (voiced by Robert Jennings), a tiny miserable and frustrated but hot-blooded apple known as Midget Apple (though he prefers the name Little Apple), a happy-go-lucky and slightly eccentric marshmallow of ambiguous gender, and an elderly lemon named Grandpa Lemon, all of whom were not main characters until later episodes.

Most episodes consist of Orange heckling other characters until they meet a sudden and gruesome end, usually by evisceration with a chef's knife (although the implements used to cut them up range from a blender to a toy pinwheel). Usually, Orange tries to "warn" them before it happens, blurting out the weapon-in-use, such as "Knife!" [2]

Orange has several recurring mannerisms. He often begins an episode by repeatedly yelling "Hey, (name of character)!" until the character responds. Orange also often refers to the character as something that plays on the object's name or appearance (such as calling Grapefruit "Apefruit"). If he does not like an object, he will often say "You're an apple!", even if the object is not (e.g., a tomato). Orange uses various tactics, such as telling rude and offensive jokes, burping and making childish noises with his tongue, to get attention.

Despite what other fruits and objects think, Orange often cannot control his tendency to be "annoying," and rarely intentionally tries to spite others; he usually means well for most fruits and objects. In one episode of the web series, a "life coach," Mango, suggests that Orange uses his annoying nature to try to cope with the destruction of the fruits he tries to make friends with.

Regardless of his seemingly anti-social behavior, Orange can almost always find comfort in the company of his friends and sometimes makes new ones.

CharactersEdit

Main CharactersEdit

  • Orange: The main character who is an orange and is incredibly annoying.
  • Pear: A pear who is the only fruit who puts up with Orange, and is arguably his best friend.
  • Midget Apple: A miniature apple who prefers to be called "Little Apple". He is Marshmallow's best friend.
  • Marshmallow: A marshmallow who talks in a squeaky voice and is always happy. Though having been referred as male in multiple occasions, a running gag has many people asking if Marshmallow is a boy or a girl. He is often seen with Midget Apple.
  • Passion Fruit: A passion fruit who Orange is in love with though she is oblivious to this.
  • Grapefruit: A jock who is in love with Passion. He died in his first appearance but was brought back to life in "Frankenfruit".

BackgroundEdit

 
Creator Dane Boedigheimer (right)

Before The Annoying Orange, Boedigheimer had done many talking food videos for his channel and other sites including JibJab. He said in an interview that the idea for The Annoying Orange was a combination of the talking food videos, puns and special effects he came up with and did before.[4] The original video was planned to be titled The Annoying Apple, but when he started animating the video he found it easier to put features on an orange than an apple and make it clear.[5]

The first Annoying Orange video was initially meant to be the only one on YouTube. However, many viewers requested more videos,[2][6] and after the 4th one, Boedigheimer decided to make a full-time series. Following the success of the series, he created a channel dedicated to The Annoying Orange under the name "Annoying Orange" on January 11, 2010.

ReceptionEdit

The series was rated as the most viewed web series of February and March 2010 by Mashable, with over 52 million views.[7][8] On April 26, 2010, the series had over 108 million views on YouTube.[2][9][10] In June 2010, the channel had received 137 million views.[6] By August 13, 2010, it had received 1 million subscribers. In June 2011, the channel was ranked as the eighth most subscribed and 30th most viewed, with more than 2,000,000 subscribers.[11][12] On January 13, 2012, the series hit 1 billion channel views and 2.3 million subscribers.[13][14] The Annoying Orange YouTube channel currently has over 6 million subscribers.

Despite the show's popularity, it has received generally unfavorable reviews from critics. Liz Shannon Miller considered the show to be "annoying for many reasons."[15] In the web series column Pass the Mustard, Ned Hepburn called the show "pure, pure unfunny, highly concentrated, in droplet form, just purely nonsensical riffing from an Annoying Orange." Hepburn concluded, "the Annoying Orange series is one of the few that I had a physically bad reaction to. It was horrible."[16] 411mania.com called the show "idiotic" and "creepy as hell",[17] while other publications have referred to it as "third grade humor."[2]

In 2014 The Annoying Orange YouTube Channel was listed on New Media Rockstars Top 100 Channels, ranked at #32.[18]

LawsuitEdit

The success of the series had received attention of Fargo advertising agency H2M, who, in 2006, created its own “Talking Orange”, which is the spokesman for an ad campaign for the North Dakota Department of Transportation. Both of the two characters were two anthropomorphic oranges with ties to the Fargo-Moorhead area. Despite only slightly resembling the “Talking Orange”, the Annoying Orange was looked into by H2M’s attorneys as an intellectual property matter. Boedigheimer stated he had not watched the “Talking Orange” videos before he was told about the disagreement, also believing that the characters weren’t very similar.[19] Boedigheimer and Grove were later sued by H2M in May 2013 for allegedly copying the character.[20] No source has been released stating whether the case has been disclosed or is still going on.

MerchandiseEdit

Since late 2011, The Collective has produced many accessories, toys and clothing with toymaker The Bridge Direct and clothing retailers such as JCPenney, Shopko and rue21.[21] On November 10, 2011, GeekDad announced a giveaway for an Annoying Orange T-shirt from JCPenney and a toy from Toys R Us. GeekDad started taking entries through Friday at 11:59 PM.[22] The Collective also announced a partnership in December of that year with costume manufacturer Rubie's Costume Company to produce children and adult Halloween costumes and accessories featuring characters such as Orange, Pear, Marshmallow, and Midget Apple from the web series.[23]

GamesEdit

Kitchen CarnageEdit

A video game developed by Bottle Rocket Apps named Kitchen Carnage was released for the iPod Touch and iPhone on April 7, 2011. The game was later released in HD for the iPad on May 6, 2011, and for Android devices on October 14, 2011. The Christmas version of the game was released in December 2011 and the free version of the game, Kitchen Carnage Lite, was released March 2, 2012.

The aim of the game is to throw a different items across the kitchen into a series of blenders before the time runs out. The player is given apples and bananas at the start. When the second level is reached, tomatoes are added. Level 3 adds cantaloupes, level 4 pineapples, level 5 strawberries and level 6 adds Fred FiggleCorns.

Splatter UpEdit

Annoying Orange: Splatter Up is the second game by the Annoying Orange, after Kitchen Carnage. The game is based on baseball, and the player slides a finger while a fruit enters the home plate. The faster the player slides, the farther he gets. The game sprites are the same as the Kitchen Carnage game, the only ones that don't appear in this game but appear in Kitchen Carnage are Red Raspberry and Fred Figglecorn.

Pay withdrawal lawsuitEdit

On December 23, 2014, Dane Boedigheimer announced that The Annoying Orange has not been funded by Collective Digital Studios since November 2014. This has led Daneboe to take legal action to get paid. The outcome of the web series because of this is unknown.
