Total Fruit Island (lost animated YouTube series; 2010)
Total Fruit Island is a lost animated series on YouTube that was created around December of 2010 (making it the 2nd known object show to exist after Battle for Dream Island). It was inspired by shows such as Battle for Dream Island and Total Drama Island.
The series was most likely about a set of objects (in this case, being fruit) competing in a challenge to win a prize, which was the same plot as BFDI, the show's main inspiration.
At the time, the show was quite popular, with one of the episodes getting around 40 elimination votes. However, it's unknown if this is actually correct and some people think that the creator counted double votes.
Past Leads[edit | edit source]
According to a created by Humany/carykh (the co-creator of BFDI), two of the characters in the show (one of which possibly being a mandarin), were Asian stereotypes, one of which was the host of the show, which had a fu manchu moustache. He also stated that the characters had to stay in a fruit basket when either eliminated or safe from elimination.
It was also stated that the show was cancelled after its second/third episode, and the channel the show was hosted on eventually was taken down in 2017 or earlier. It is currently unknown why it happened, but it was likely taken down by the show's creator.
A YouTube comment made by Hayden Martin says that he remembers seeing the show and that one of the characters was a star fruit. Another comment stated that one of the characters was also a dragon fruit.
Some recall that the show's visuals were very basic and made with Microsoft Paint, with all of the characters being circles, the background being only a blue rectangle (i.e the sky), and a green rectangle for grass. Some people stated that the show looked similar to Fight for Feline Funds, a show created by englishcreamcakes in 2011.
A tweet by Pudster12345 made on December 8th, 2010 suggests that the channel that the episodes were hosted on was called TotalFruitIsland, possibly further proving the show's existence. Another tweet by Pudster12345 states that they voted for Star Fruit, and another tweet by them confirms the title for the second episode of the show.
Some people speculated that YouTube user MrOrange890 created the show, as they have made a show with similar visuals, however, this was proven false. Another YouTube named Veer Singh was Discovered but the lead was abandoned. They also discovered a possible announcement video about Total Fruit Island on the Internet Archive. On January 14th, 2022, a TFI investigator managed to find the description of TFI episode 1 by looking through an old WordPress website on the Wayback Machine. The description reads: "Meet the fruits and the host. The teams are formed and an elimination already! COMMENT ON THIS VIDEO TO VOTE."
