Viral video sensation Toby Turner is getting ready to bring his unique brand of off-kilter humor to Cartoon Network, via a series of hilarious on-air spots that feature Turner himself and his strangely verbose dog Gryphon. The segments will have the duo poking fun at various popular Cartoon Network Shows such as Adventure Time, Teen Titans Go, Regular Show, Johnny Test, and the Amazing World of Gumball.
Toby Turner first rose to fame as the sole recurring human, Nerville, on the Annoying Orange, which also started out as a viral video sensation on Youtube (garnering over 1.6 billion total Youtube views and 6.4 million subscribers) before being picked up by Cartoon Network.
“We wanted Toby to just do his thing,” said Susan Shipsky, vice president, production for Turner Broadcasting’s Animation, Young Adults and Kids Media’s (AYAKM) Creative Group. “He is a great fit for our audience and the spots are hilarious.”
