The Annoying Orange is an American comedy web series created by former Minnesota film student and MTV production assistant Dane Boedigheimer in 2009. It stars Boedigheimer as an anthropomorphic orange who annoys other fruits, vegetables, and various other objects by using jokes, which are sometimes crude-humored. The YouTube channel "realannoyingorange" has over 3.5 million subscribers.
The very first episode was supposed to be only a minor video of talking food for Dane Boedigheimer's channel, but since this episode became very popular, and requests for more of it came through, he decided to make a series of it. The video was uploaded on October 9, 2009 on Boedigheimer's channel, and was reuploaded to the realannoyingorange channel on February 15, 2010.
