CN's 3rd original miniseries
After Over the Garden wall Cartoon Network Was on a pseudo Mini-series High, They gave Adventure Time 3 which were all pretty great, Long live the Royals which was meh and I think TTG got one about being stuck on an island but no one cared about that, Even adult swim made a new season of Samurai Jack. But them comes Apple and Onion, A&O wasn't a pilot I was actively Rooting for but it was fun. I was surprised when it was part of the upfront and confused when it was stated as a mini-series. When watching A&O I say it's like a Regular show setting with the humor and feel of Clarence, the plots put the characters in situations akin to Regular show (especially when the characters do their jingles) but the humor goes for the light heated tone of Clarence. It's a decent watch but the problem is the shows length, only 10 episodes with 1 pilot, and 10 mini-sodes. The show makes it feel like a weekly comedy duo show like regular show, but since it's a mini-series I was expecting something a little more. I mean I'm not expecting the same emotion or depth as OTGW or AT but at least it stuck with me more than Long live the royals. It's funny, the jingles are nice but it doesn't leave you wanting more per say, but I do think if the show would have gone on it would have improved like the other CN shows of this era have done. I's still a good show but I'm just left wonder when CN would ever air or bring this one up again out side of an anniversary of the network or something to buy on Itunes. I guess it's experimentation it see if the mini-series does better in ratings but at least what we got was good. It's not amazing but it's a quality show.
