Apple & Onion is an American animated television series created for Cartoon Network. It is created by George Gendi, a former storyboard artist on fellow Cartoon Network series The Amazing World of Gumball and the Nickelodeon animated series Sanjay and Craig, who also serves as executive producer.

George Gendi first pitched the idea of the series to Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe whilst working on Gumball in London. Upon arriving in Burbank, Gendi approached Cartoon Network Studios with the concept, who greenlit the production of a pilot. The resulting short was selected to be screened alongside another Cartoon Network pilot, Welcome to My Life, at the Annecy Festival in 2015, before eventually being released online in May 2016. The short was picked up for a limited series run in March 2017 which premiered on February 23, 2018, with a premiere on the Cartoon Network App and on demand one week before.


Set in a world populated by anthropomorphic food, Apple and Onion, a pair of child-like newcomers to the big city, attempt to fit in to their new surroundings by making friends and engaging in new experiences.
