Set in a world populated by anthropomorphic food, Apple and Onion, a pair of childlike newcomers to the big city, attempt to fit in to their new surroundings while undergoing challenges faced with friends and other scenarios.
Gendi first pitched the idea of the series to Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe whilst working on Gumball in London. Upon arriving in Burbank, Gendi approached Cartoon Network Studios with the concept, who greenlit the production of a pilot. The resulting short was selected to be screened alongside another Cartoon Network pilot, Welcome to My Life, at the Annecy Festival in 2015, before eventually being released online in May 2016. The short was picked up for a limited series in March 2017 which premiered on February 23, 2018, with a premiere on the Cartoon Network App and on demand one week before the series.
On May 20, 2019, the series was picked up for a second season.
