Pickle and Peanut is an American animated television series that aired on Disney XD from September 7, 2015, to January 20, 2018.[1][2] The series was created by Noah Z. Jones, creator of Fish Hooks and Almost Naked Animals, and developed by Joel Trussell. It is about two friends, Pickle and Peanut, an anthropomorphic pickle and peanut whose misadventures form the content of the show. As with Jones' previous Disney series Fish Hooks, the show utilizes a combination of live action and animation elements.

On July 23, 2016, the series was renewed for a second season, which premiered on October 23, 2017.[3] The second season finished airing with a set of four episodes on January 20, 2018; Trussell confirmed through Twitter that the episodes would be the series' last.[4]

Pickle works at the Mjärt Mart along with Peanut, doing cool stuff whenever they can.
  • Peanut (voiced by Johnny Pemberton) – Pickle's best friend, a peanut who wants to be cool and popular. Peanut is a freewheeling, peanut-looking man. Besides the goal of popularity, he also tries to attract ladies. Peanut drives a van and wears a headband. Peanut is cooler and a bit smarter than Pickle. Peanut, like Pickle, works at the Mjärt Mart, doing cart stunts whenever they can.
