'The Annoying Orange' rolls to Cartoon Network

Cue the annoying fruit puns -- the Cartoon Network is bringing Internet phenom the Annoying Orange to cable TV.

If you have a computer you already know this, but the Annoying Orange concerns a (crudely) animated citrus who irritates nearby foods with bad jokes and puns. As a Web series, the character has racked up more than 850 million total views on its YouTube channel.


Cartoon Network plans to introduce a weekly series based on the character in 2012. In a release, the network said the show would follow Orange and his acquaintances as they travel through time in a magical food cart.

" 'The Annoying Orange' and Cartoon Network were just meant to be squeezed together," Rob Sorcher, chief content officer for the network, said in a statement. 

Oh, we get it -- squeeze! Orange!

With wit like that, this thing will be hilarious. What do you think?
