Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Island is an animated comedy series that ran on Kids’ WB! from 2005 to 2006. The series takes place on an island inhabited by fruit where various wacky situations ensue, the main characters being Fred a happy-go-lucky coconut, Slip and Slide 2 twin banana brothers, Bingo a timid cherry, Mr. Mel Greenrind a watermelon who tries to establish order on the island, Wedgie a lemon who's a stranded sailor and Bunga Berry a feral strawberry who's also mute. The series was criticized due to its obnoxious over-the-top humor and being too similar to Nickelodeon's SpongeBob SquarePants.

Pitch Pilot[edit | edit source]

In the early to mid-2000s a pilot was made to pitch the show to the network. The pilot looks to be an early version of the episode "Master of Disaster" with the characters having slightly different designs compared to the final show with the most notable changes to Fred's pupils and teeth. In June 2020 Twitter user NegaPosi rediscovered clips of the pilot from 2 YTP videos from YouTuber 1downpoison, "Butchy is Sexually Frustrated" and "Grounder lost his penis" and uploaded the footage onto her YouTube channel.[1] Although when contacting 1downpoison they stated they no longer have the pilot.[2]

It's been speculated that the series creator Sammy Oriti uploaded the unaired pilot along with every episode of the show onto his YouTube channel before it was terminated, but as of June 2022 more footage of the pilot has yet to resurface.
