YouTube’s Very Own “Annoying Orange” Gets Own TV Show

Annoying OrangeAnnoying Orange is a huge YouTube success with more than 850 million combined views for all of its videos combined and now that mass appeal has translated into a new show on Cartoon Network.

Joining the networks 2012 lineup Annoying Orange will feature a half-hour show in which Orange and his friends use a “magical fruit cart” to travel through time.

The show was conceived earlier in the year when management company The Collective began working with creator Dane Boedigheimer to shoot a pilot which was then shown to TV networks.

If you’re unfamiliar with the character it’s literally an orange (pictured above) that talks in a squeaky voice and plays tricks on other fruits and vegetables, all the while using corny puns to get their point across. 

Annoying Orange is following in the footsteps of another YouTube fan favorite Fred which made the jump to Nickelodeon last year in Fred: The Movie and eventually in the sequel.

At this point it’s still not clear when the show will air.

Would you be wiling to take your love of the Annoying Orange from YouTube over to the Cartoon Network?
