Annoying Orange to star in Cartoon Network series

Hey, apple! Guess who's coming to TV?

Cartoon Network announced Thursday that it's bringing The Annoying Orange, an Internet hit, to its 2012 lineup as a half-hour series.

The Annoying Orange, in which a nasal-voiced, mouthy orange pesters an apple and other objects with puns and jokes, has drawn more than 850 million views on YouTube, according to Cartoon Network. There's also a website at http://annoyingorange.com.

The TV series will follow Orange and his produce buddies as they travel through time in a magical fruit car, finding adventures along the way, the network said.

A debut date was not announced.
