The Annoying Orange is the titular main protagonist of the YouTube series of the same name.
Sadly, he got butchered when a TV series adaption of it, titled The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange, came out in Cartoon Network, much like how Fred Figglehorn himself (another then-popular YouTube star) got butchered when Nickelodeon made three TV movies and a TV series adaption of it at the same time.
Why He's So Annoying
- Right off the bat, the Annoying Orange's original web incarnation, while still a great and likable comic relief protagonist character in its own right, is a rather underdeveloped character by TV show standards, and therefore is very difficult to execute such web characters for the screen without butchering everything that made it good, as with Fred Figglehorn. But unfortunately he suffered severe flanderization under the hands of the Cartoon Network executives in order to adapt the character for the longer running time of his television adaptation, which results him to being heavily unlikable and losing all the charm he previously had in the original web series, as listed below.
- This incarnation of Annoying Orange is more annoying than he usually is. In fact, he is annoying to the point he's not even funny here.
- Annoying Orange in this show provides way too many fart jokes to the point where it's not even funny is more gross and annoying.
- Most of his non-gross-out jokes usually consist of poorly-conceived puns.
- His web series incarnation had a crush on Passion Fruit, but for the TV incarnation of Annoying Orange, it's vice-versa, meaning that Passion Fruit has a crush on Annoying Orange, which makes little-to-no sense whatsoever.
- His voice sucks, even if provided by Dane Boedigheimer, who voiced him in the web series as well as creating the character to begin with.
- He does have some funny moments here and there.
- His web carnation is much more funnier and likable than his TV incarnation.
