Orange Through Time is the 68th episode in the Annoying Orange series. This episode features Orange throughout several major points in Earth's history.
Orange goes back in time to annoy two dinosaurs, Benjamin Franklin, and the Titanic.
Orange visits and annoys two dinosaurs during the end of the Cretaceous Period (about 145 million years ago [144,997,990 BC]).
A meteor strikes the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, which kills off every dinosaur. The remaining animals are mammals, which would dominate Earth in the Cenozoic Era (66 million years ago [65,997,990 BC]-present).
During Franklin's kite-and-key experiment, to demonstrate that lightning is electricity and not a supernatural power, Orange appears and calls his name. Franklin yells, "What?", to Orange. Orange tells him that he will be struck by lightning twice. In real life, Franklin was not struck by lightning. He risked his life to do the experiment but he was lucky.
Orange watches the Titanic sail to New York on 14 April 1912 at 23:40 (11:40 pm). Orange tells the ship that the iceberg isahead. The ship crashes, and sinks, due to the first five watertight compartments being flooded. When Orange exclaimed, "Iceberg!", the ship immediately crashes. When Fred Fleet yelled, "Iceberg, right ahead!", the ship had 37 seconds to steer away from the ice. The wireless telegraph person was communicating with a Canadian on land, while the SS Californian, just 16 kilometres (10 miles) away, disruptly taps a message to the Titanic warning them about an iceberg. The Titanic telegraph person tells the SS Californian to SHUT UP, ignoring the warning. The Titanic's crew discovered the iceberg mentioned by the Californian 37 seconds before the crash.
