Western Animation / Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island


A 2005 Warner Bros. animated show that lasted only 13 episodes. It starred the hyperactive Coconut Fred in his strange and silly adventures on Fruit Salad Island. He is usually aided by a neurotic cherry, hillbily twin bananas and a Noble Savage strawberry, and usually to the misery, strife and pain of a strict watermelon, a lemon who wants to get off the island and a bully apple.

There's no getting around the fact that the show was a shameless knockoff of SpongeBob SquarePants: everyone from the youngest viewers to the actor playing the main character (Rob Paulsen, who would later list him as his least favorite role) picked up on it. Still you know what they say, "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery".

Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Tropes:

  • Angrish: In "Bananas For Golf", Mr. Greenrind goes into this when a gopher spits out his golf ball from the hole.
  • Anthropomorphic Food: The entire cast is walking fruit.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Fred attempts to juggle a bear for a world record.
  • Dub Name Change: The Latin American dub of the episode "Sir Nut-a-Lot" is called "Sir Cocolot".
  • Only Sane Man: Mr. Greenrind, who tries to make sense of Fred's antics.
  • Short Runner: Lasted only 13 episodes.
  • Shout-Out: At some point in "Master of Disaster", one of the banana twins gets out a hand puppet that looks like Prickle.
