I have to agree, the person below did not give the show a chance. This is one of the funniest shows i've ever seen! Not only can you catch it on Adult Swim, it is on TBS late friday nights. If you like The Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, King of the Hill, South Park or any other ADULT cartoon, you will no be dissappointed in this.

The Oblongs are coming to dvd ! its about time this great twisted show gets a dvd set. dont listen to reviewer T. Casey who wants you to be a Barney fan like he is. The Oblongs cartoon is comedy gold. How can you go wrong with a show about a deformed family that lives next to a toxic waste dump ? well how can you go wrong ?.... im waiting for a answer !

"The Oblongs" is another one of those cartoons that is greatly underappreciated by the masses.

Yes, its humor is derived from a family of "oddballs" and their miscreant friends and neighbors, but the laughs were just so plentiful. Excellent writing, and brilliant voice work by Will Ferrell and Jean Smart.

Sadly, the show only lasted one season, and reruns are now shown haphazardly on "Adult Swim". Maybe there will be a grassroots movement to bring the show back, now that its on DVD (it worked for "Family Guy", and this show is at LEAST as good as "Family Guy" ... and much better than "American Dad"!)

I think the other reviewer hasn't given this series a chance. One episode isn't enough to judge an entire series! Also, this series was (it seems to me, anyway) meant for adults, not kids. That's why it's on ADULT Swim. This is a great series which Hot Topic hasn't killed yet.

The first time I saw the show was on TBS. After a few episodes, I was hooked. I love the introductory theme and the characters. The situations and demented characters are wonderful.

Thirteen episodes (eight were originally shown) were not enough for this series to have developed. I am happy that Family Guy has come back. There are rumors about new Futurama episodes.

I wish people would contact Angus Oblong and beg this show to come back!!!!

I first saw "The Oblongs" on Cartoon Network's gloriously twisted Adult Swim block of programming (just as a side note, Adult Swim presents some of the most creative animation being produced in the world today) and instantly fell in love with the exquisite wrongness of its humor. What a shame Warner Bros. didn't appreciate all the creativity that went into the series. The 13 episodes are sharp, witty, and never condescend to the audience, with brilliant voice performances, especially by Will Ferrell and Jean Smart. Angus Oblong's marvelous designs come to vibrant life and make you cheer for the lovable-though-misshapen inhabitants of Hill Valley. The simple object lesson of the show is that it's more important to have a heart than to be rich, beautiful and popular. I have followed this philosophy for many years and have never regretted making the friends I have and meeting the people I love. Would that the world had more Oblongs in it.

This series alternates between juvenile and demented. It's some of Will Ferrell's best work (outside his SNL material, of course).

Currently this is available exclusively at Best Buy. Hold off the temptation to buy it from them (or from the rip-off artist here on the Amazon Marketplace that wants $50-$60 for it, and buy it in about 2 more months when it's everywhere for $24.

I thought this was super funny. Though it had a short time on TV, most people would have to like it in their DVD tv show collection. I agree that it is in the ranks with The Simpsons, South Park, King Of The Hill, Monty Python, Family Guy, and Futurama.
