Pickle and Peanut is a Disney animated television series that premiered on Disney XD on September 2, 2015. It is created by Noah Z. Jones (creator of Fish Hooks and Almost Naked Animals) and developed by Joel Trussell and Mark Rivers.
The series focuses on two best friends—an emotional pickle and a freewheeling peanut who live in East Reno, Nevada and together experience adventures and dream up plans to be anything but ordinary. As with Fish Hooks, the cartoon uses a mix of 2-D animation and live-action clips footage.
