The Annoying Orange is an animated web series hosted on YouTube and Blip.tv, involving a talking orange who is annoying.

It was created by Dane Boedigheimer, who had, along with his company Gagfilms, previously made several videos about talking food, including some for Jib Jab.

The show had an immense and unexpected popularity, with his first video reaching several million views. After noticing what a hit his creation turned to be, Daneboe started posting new videos more regularly, and at present a new episode is out every Friday.

In summer 2012, The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange, a TV series, premiered on Cartoon Network to successful ratings. After airing two seasons, the show went on hiatus after the second season ended in May 2014, and in December 2014 Daneboe confirmed that the series had been cancelled. A rumored third season for May 2016 did not show up.

There's also a spinoff, Liam The Leprechaun, starring the eponymous Transplanted character. There's even a chatbot. Also, there are a couple of games: the Licensed Game Kitchen Carnage (which also has HD and Lite versions), Splatter Up! (also with free versions and Cartoon Network's Web Game Pinball.

However, public reception is mixed. While most commenters on the channel seem to love the character, others consider him to be just annoying or simply unfunny. Which is, y'know, why it exists.


These videos provide examples of:

Hey! Hey Troper!

Knife.

Alternative Title(s): Liam The Leprechaun
