The Fruitties are a peace loving community of fruit who were happily living in a supposedly extinct volcano, until one day it roused from its slumber and forced them to leave and look for a new home in the nearby mysterious forest. They are confronted with a whole host of sticky situations in their new habitat, including the threat from vegetarian animals!Written by
I had the displeasure of having to watch this train wreck of a series when I was on my holidays. I still haven't recovered.
If you've seen any of those "David the Gnome" series, or "Alex and Alexis", you know what you're getting. This is an animated Spanish kids TV show about anthropomorphic fruit and vegetables, who live on an island at the foot of a volcano (I'm not making this up!), who get into all the usual "Saturday morning TV stuff" (lots of slapstick comedy and bad puns) I saw the English dub of this, and I couldn't keep watching. The dubbing is AWFUL (worse than 4Kids dubs of anime!). There is ridiculously poor dialog, and, worst of all, IT DOESN'T MATCH UP TO THE MOUTHS AT ALL!!!!!! But by far the worst part of the show is the animation. Believe me, it is TERRIBLE! If you've seen the old Hanna-Barbera or Filmation cartoons, where everything is blocky and character movements are looped over and over again, you'll still be shocked by "The Fruitties". There is no detail in ANYTHING, foreground or background, and it looks like diarrhea splashed over your TV screen. It's obvious the show was thrown together for about £5 to fill a time slot.
I thought this show was made in the 70s or 80s, because it looks so cheap, but no, it was made in THE 90S!!!! When animation was put up to a standard.
Please avoid this show, if you want to remain sane.
