Saturtainment: Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island (2005)

A cartoon show about sentient fruit? Yup. Somehow, some way, WB green-lighted Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island, a 1-season wonder that aired on Kids' WB! in 2005. KidsWBontheCW uploaded the open:



When I first heard about this show, the first thing I thought of was that it was a ripoff of Nickelodeon's mega-popular SpongeBob SquarePants, which, oh by the way, is still on the air 6 years later. Well, it'd actually be a rip-off if Fred (Rob Paulsen) and his pals were under the sea, just like SpongeBob. By this point, WB was searching for some innovative programming on Saturdays, and thought this flash-animated show might work out, especially if it was aimed at the right audience. Ultimately, it didn't happen, and the show was cancelled in June 2006 after 9 months on the air.

No rating, as I never watched the show.

Gee, don't ya think the fact that they were blatantly ripping off SpongeBob had something to do with it?

Yes.

Well, it's dead & buried. That would be the end of that.

I'm glad it isn't on DVD. I never even saw this piece of shit anyway.

Don't give them any ideas.

This show was canceled in May 2006, not June 2006.
