[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/coconut_freds_fruit_salad_island.jpg]]

A 2005 Creator/WarnerBros 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 NobleSavage 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 ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob SquarePants}}'': everyone from the youngest viewers to ''the actor playing the main character'' (Creator/RobPaulsen, who would later list him as [[OldShame his least favorite role]]) picked up on it. Still you know what they say, "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery".
