Orange (Born October 9th 2009) is the main protagonist of the The Annoying Orange (series), as well as the show's lead protagonist. He is portrayed by Dane Boedigheimer, the chief investment officer of Gagfilms. Orange has made full appearances in almoust every episode (though not always the main character in some episodes), since the start of the series on October 9, 2009, which is also his birthday. Orange has yellow teeth, grey eyes, and a braying laugh. Episodes are characterized by his taunting and annoying his victims-to-be with his adolescent behavior that frequently include burping, pestering, puns, and play-on-words. These actions often infuriate the other character to the point where they start yelling at him to "shut up", only to have Orange warn them of their impending catastrophe: evisceration with a chef's knife, a blender or other types of death like being squashed by some heavy items or eaten by animals such as Squirrel. He has a very famous quote, which comes after someone calls him something: "No, I'm not. I'm an orange!".

Boedigheimer describes the character as a composite of people in his life, saying "everyone knows somebody like him: They don't listen, they are annoying, and at the same time they are kind of lovable".


Orange is annoying, optimistic, dim-witted, usually cheerful, and witty he also loves to crack annoying puns. He almost always blunders things for their color. He is considered the most annoying thing that most of the characters have ever met.

In reality, Orange is very kind and innocent at heart, because if he really likes somebody, he will try to think of something that will make them like him a little bit.

When he sees someone get killed (usually by evisceration from Knife), he will usually watch in horror and sometimes scream, but if the person is someone he loathes, he will laugh at their disbursement.

Orange's innocent and playful antics have garnered him both a lot of friends and rivals.


Orange was put onto the counter sometime before the series, and had been annoying Apple for some time before the first episode was recorded. He has met oodles of fruits and vegetables, and usually infuriates them, and some survive (much to their horror). He is friends with Pear but in The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange, Pear denies it, even though he knows it's true.

Later in the series, he meets Passion Fruit, who he has some feelings for, and Passion thinks of him as a friend most of the time. At one point, Jigsaw attempted to make Orange into a death trap (he wanted Orange to annoy Marshmallow to death). As anyone could expect, this plan failed as Marshmallow was annoying as well.

Orange is a major part in the kitchen as seen in Wishful Thinking because if Orange didn't exist, Pear wouldn't know how to talk to other fruits and vegetables, Midget Apple of injured Grapefruit, and Marshmallow would have been killed by hot chocolate. He currently lives in the kitchen and shares counter space with Orange, Pear, and Passion Fruit (and in some episodes with Grapefruit).



Main article: Pear

Pear is Orange's best friend. Although constantly annoyed by Orange, Pear has later calmed down and have been very good friends with Orange. Previously, Pear started out with suicidal thoughts. Although sometimes Pear talks some sense into him.

Passion FruitEdit

Main article: Passion Fruit

Passion Fruit is Orange's good friend, and love interest. Orange tries to hide that he really loves Passion, as seen in The Sitcom. Passion Fruit can get mad at Orange if he annoys her by cracking puns. She did not appear in the anniversary of Orange's first birthday; the reason is Pear and the gang don't know Orange loves her. Orange still cares about Passion. In The High Fructose Adventures of The Annoying Orange, Passion usually lets orange do things or comments and tells him what he can do.


Main article: Marshmallow

Orange befriended Marshmallow in Annoying Saw 2. He doesn't show any signs of being angry at Orange. Orange has been known to care about Marshmallow's well being. It is shown there best friends because Orange teaches him how to do the tongue noise.

Midget AppleEdit

Main article: Midget Apple

Midget Apple befriended Orange in Crabapple. He is a friend of Orange, Pear, Marshmallow, and Passion Fruit, but simply hates being called Midget Apple. Orange often gets on his nerve from the usual "Little Apple" quote, although they do share many good times and adventures with each other. Orange is the exact reason Midget apple wants to be big.


Main article: Apple (The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange)

An Apple appears in the TV show, and has a holds huge antagonism with Orange. Apple has an ability to revive from fatal injuries (which he experiences episodically), in a manner similiar to Kenny from South Park. He appears to be a distinct character exlusive to the TV Series, with a different personlity and voice actor to any of the apples appearing in the YouTube Series. He was made to fulfil the need for a character for Orange to channel his hatred for apples (since every apple in the YouTube Series was killed). However the episode My Name is Orange implies him to be the same apple as the one that got knifed in the original The Annoying Orange video (although that Apple was played by Daneboe).

Mama OrangeEdit

She is Orange's mother, first seen in Mommy and me, recently seen in Meet the oranges. She has red hair, and sounds identical to orange, because they're both played by Daneboe.

Mr. OrangeEdit

He is Orange's father only appeared in Meet the oranges, and is shown to be just like orange, but really crazy. He has a small amount of  hair, and looks a little old.

  • "Knife!"

  • And many others


Main article: Tongue noise

Orange making his tongue sound

To make Orange's famous babbling, Orange hangs his tongue on his left side on his mouth and bites down on it. He sometimes goes on the right side. Other characters, like Marshmallow, Midget Apple, and Pear also have a tongue sound, too, but Orange is famous for his as it is annoying to almost everyone. The only character who had a more annoying tongue sound than Orange is Zoom, and when Orange drank Zoom's liquid, Orange's tongue sound began to be similar to Zoom's, much more aggravating.


  • In the world of AO, Oranges are considered the most annoying fruits.
