“With jaunts to the Prehistoric Era and even Colonial Times, Orange and the rest of the fruit stand gang are dropped into outrageous adventures and challenged to squeeze their way out of them. Joining Orange on his escapades are popular produce pals from the Web series including the level-headed Pear, potential paramour Passion Fruit, resident goody goody Apple, the always upbeat Marshmallow and Orange’s nemesis the hulking Grapefruit. The only human to interact with this veritable fruit salad is a brand new character, Nerville (played by YouTube sensation Toby Turner), the proprietor of a fruit cart where Orange and his crew reside.”
