Born in Egypt and raised in England, Gendi found inspiration for the whimsical comedy in a children's story written by his older brother. Like Emmy-winning, critically acclaimed miniseries Over the Garden Wall and Long Live the Royals, the Apple & Onion short was greenlit as part of Cartoon Network's Artists Program and developed into a limited series to include a colorful zany foodiverse allowing for comedic situations featuring the two quirky friends with playful personalities and infectious musical beats to match.
Apple and Onion are new to the city and the city is new to them. They find it unfamiliar and confusing, but with an unstoppable enthusiasm they discover their own special and often insightful path through the journey called life. Joined by an eclectic lively mix of anthropomorphic food friends that include Hotdog, Lemon Drop, Pancake and countless others, the can-do and optimistic Apple and Onion encounter adventures on every avenue, take on the challenges of big city living and bring cheer and goodness to wherever they go.
