We all know the idyllic Christmastime scene. Cookies are baking in the oven, snow is falling gently in the yard, everyone is wearing their ugly Christmas sweaters, and The Annoying Orange is playing on the stereo.
Yeah, you heard that right. The four producers behind the crazy popular Annoying Orange series – Dane Boedigheimer, Bob Jennings, Spencer Grove and Aaron Massey – have released a Yuletide album, titled Christmas in the Kitchen, featuring all of the popular characters from the kitchen singing their holiday favorites with (in)appropriately and punny updated lyrics.
The album is admittedly a bit skimpy, clocking in at a mere 18:31. However, if you know a big Annoying Orange fan, it makes a great stocking stuffer, (as do the popular YouTube and Cartoon Network franchise’s many other branded efforts).
Most of the songs are Christmas classics, though one original song, ‘Christmas is for Giving’, has been written for the album. An accompanying music video has been created, featuring Orange goofing on all of his fellow kitchen mates. Along with the Orange’s holiday TV special, the album is a clear indicator daneboe and his co-producers are jazzed about the upcoming season.
Christmas in the Kitchen, which is available now on Itunes, is meant to hearken back to Christmas albums of old. “My goal was to take the Annoying Orange kitchen characters and create the feel of the Alvin & The Chipmunks and the John Denver & The Muppets Christmas Albums,” said co-producer Bob Jennings, “complete with silly banter between the gang. Orange is, of course, our Bugs Bunny-like trickster at the center of it all.”
That’s pretty much all there is to it. If you want to have an extra Annoying Orange-y holiday, you know what to do. Have a great holiday season and watch out for that Knife!
