The Annoying Orange is one of YouTube's most popular web series. It was created by Minnesota film student, Dane Boedigheimer (under the pseudonym Daneboe) and his company Gagfilms. The series originally started out as one video, but because of its growing popularity, Boedigheimer. There has been 90 episodes and 3 seasons released so far. The first videos were uploaded under Boedigheimer's YouTube channel daneboe, but then Boedigheimer created a channel dedicated to Orange. As of 2011, the channel is ranked the 8th most subscribed, and the 35th most viewed, of all time. More than 2,000,000 YouTubers have subscribed to Orange's channel.


Background

Main article: Orange

Orange's history may have began before the series debuted; a talking orange first appeared in one of Boedigheimer's videos on March 16, 2007.

The current show features Orange, an anthropomorphic orange. The first episode was released on October 9, 2009. Orange's friends include Pear, a Bartlett pear with a brotherly attitude, Passion Fruit, a female passionfruit and his crush in an alternate reality, Midget Apple, a tiny Red Delicious apple, and Marshmallow, a small childlike marshmallow as well as Midget Apple's best friend. Secondary characters include Grapefruit, a cranky, arrogant grapefruit, and Grandpa Lemon, an elderly, narcoleptic lemon with an adventurous past.

All of the characters are animated by having the actors' eyes superimposed onto the object the actor was playing. Most characters' eyes are one of their eyes duplicated. For example, Dane Boedigheimer using his own eyes and mouth to play Orange, Pear, Marshmallow, and Midget Apple, although Orange's mouth has done some modifications to have a distinctive orange tint on it.

As of August 2014, more than two billion views hit the series. The most popular episode (Orange Nya-Nya Style) has over eighty-five million views.

Characters

Main characters

Orange

Orange is the main character around which the series is based. Voiced by Dane Boedigheimer, he has appeared in every episode since the start of the series on October 9, 2009, which is also his birthday. Orange has yellow teeth, grey eyes, and a very hillarious laugh. Episodes are characterized by his taunting and annoying his victims-to-be with his adolescent behavior that frequently includes burping, pestering, puns, and play-on-words. These actions often infuriate the other character to the point where they start yelling at him to shut up, only to have Orange warn them of their impending doom: evisceration with a chef's knife, a blender or other devices. He has a famous quote, which comes after someone calls him something: "No, I'm not. I'm an orange!" Boedigheimer describes the character as a composite of people in his life, saying "everyone knows somebody like him: They don't listen, they are annoying, and at the same time they are kind of lovable".

Pear

Pear lives on the same kitchen counter as Orange, and the deuteragonist. He is a Bartlett pear with the same colored eyes as Orange, and despite being friends with Orange he is also annoyed by him. Pear started out wanting to die as Orange was annoying him too much, but calmed down soon later and became close with Orange.They are currently best friends, and Pear actually does somewhat annoying things with Orange, particularly on Wazzup episodes. He is a very kind and brotherly character, often trying to stop characters from losing it, trying to calm Orange down, and listening to what others have to say. He is also more intelligent that Orange, although this is very easy to be. Pear is dating Passion Fruit's twin Mandy, although the only time this has been seen was on 'Wishful Thinking'.

Passion Fruit

Passion Fruit, simply called Passion by her friends, is a passionfruit. She lives on the same counter in the same kitchen as the others, having been brought into the kitchen along with Grapefruit, who later got cut up by Knife. Orange has a crush on her. Although she eventually became friends with the other fruits, Passion is still turned off by insults and scolds Pear and Orange whenever they engage in them. She often will try to settle issues and stop Orange from being annoying. She has a twin sister named Mandy (first appeared in the December 24, 2010 episode "Wishful Thinking") who is in love with Pear.

Midget Apple

====
Midget Apple is a tiny Red Delicious apple that appeared in the kitchen in the episode “Crabapple”. He is a friend of Orange, Pear, Passion and Marshmallow, but hates being called "Midget Apple". He prefers the name "Little Apple", but mostly, people simply refuse to call him by the name Midget Apple. He has the personality of a middle child, and is Marshmallow's best friend. ====

Marshmallow

Marshmallow is a small, childlike marshmallow that Orange befriended after both of them were kidnapped by Jigsaw in Annoying Saw 2: The Annoying Death Trap. After succeeding in annoying Jigsaw, Marshmallow moved into the kitchen and shares counter space with Midget Apple. It is a recurring gag in the series that he would catch fire or suffer a misfortune similar to the other foods that Orange has annoyed, however Marshmallow seems to be unaffected by these, as he is even shown bathing in a mug of hot chocolate. Although he is very sweet and cheerful, he is very dangerous when angred. He has a squeaky voice and big eyes.

Grandpa Lemon

Grandpa Lemon first appeared in "Grandpa Lemon" on June 4, 2010. He is an elderly lemon, who is forgetful, narcoleptic, and has terrible hearing. Orange tried to annoy him, but couldn't because of Grandpa Lemon's memory loss and sleeping habit. He was sliced in half by Knife, and made part of the Frankenfruit monster in the October 29, 2010 episode "Frankenfruit". He has since become a recurring character. In some episodes, he is seen riding a motor bike, which is possibly his original occupation. He is one of the most favorite characters because he is the only one who could resist Orange's annoying him. His famous first joke when he first appeared still remains a mystery - " Why did the Porcupine cross the road?" Snore......

Grapefruit

Grapefruit first appeared in "Passion of the Fruit" on February 19, 2010, and almost immediately became Orange's archenemy. He had a crush on Passion Fruit, who wasn't impressed by his flexing. He engaged in juvenile insults with Orange, much to Passion's dismay. Originally killed by Knife, he eventually returned as part of the monster in "Frankenfruit" and after that became a recurring character. He is one of the semi-antagonists and the secondary protagonist of the series.

Major recurring characters

Knife

Main article: Knife

Knife was introduced as a kitchen tool in the first episode of the series, appearing when Orange warns others of his presence, and slicing fruits and vegetables up. However, he did not appear as a character until the October 2, 2010 episode, "No More Mr. Knife Guy". Knife is shown to be at odds with his role in the series, hating his life because of how he is used. His mortal enemy is a knife sharpener due to the pain involved. He was an antagonist of the series until in "No More Mr. Knife Guy", he is now the major semi-antagonist or "protagonist" of the series.

Liam the Leprechaun

Main article: Liam the Leprechaun

Liam first appeared in "Luck o' the Irish" on March 12, 2010. He is a bad tempered leprechaun who loses his pot

of gold to Orange in his first episode. He was crushed by said pot of gold at the end of the episode, but it only returned him to his home. Liam has since made several appearances in various episodes, and is also the title character of a spinoff series. He is one of the antagonists of the series.
