Storyline

The Frumans of Frumania live in a perfect but shallow world, accessed through an apple on a market stall. In amongst the rotten bunch is Appleby Cox's-Pippin. He is generally dismissed by his fellow Frumans for his inability to be the same as them, and for his love of all things creative. Soon Appleby feels the strain of being an outcast and life at home is no better. Eventually rejected by his hypocritical father, Appleby is forced to start a journey in search of 'being the same', eventually encountering the evil Agent Orange and learning a harsh lesson in what really lies close to the Fruman heart - greed. Written by Kal Bonner

Madcap mash-up makes the most of a juicy plot about fruity folk
7 May 2012 | by AngeinaSee all my reviews

This coconut is hardly shy, and who's that going bananas under a bush with their latest squeeze? When fruit breaks free and goes wild, the world may never be the same again...

Meet the Frumans, an appealing bunch of characters, apart from the evil Agent Orange, who believes greed is good and expects all fruit to follow the power of market forces.

A madcap mash-up of mirth and mayhem makes up this juicy plot - check out the trailer for a taste of their comic capers. When the maverick Cox's Pippin kicks up his heels and runs through the orchard, you can only wonder whether they will all live appley ever after.

Narrated by DJ and comedian Phil Jupitus, of Never Mind the Buzzcocks, written and directed by Kal Bonner.
