Okay, we told you they're sick, and we're not talking about a hospital show. The Oblongs…isn't for everyone. Might be peachy for you though. Welcome to the toxic, twisted world of the Oblongs, a perversely funny, satirical animated series inspired by characters in Angus Oblong's book Creepy Susie and a regular denizen of Cartoon Network's [adult swim]™. With laser-sharp wit, maladjusted matriarch Pickles Oblong, her irrepressibly sunny husband Bob and their brood of oddities Biff, Chip, Milo and Beth gleefully cope with their shortcomings while dealing with indignities of being "different" in a "normal" world. The Oblongs are not so much dysfunctional as slightly nonfunctional. Living next to a polluted swamp has left them with the occasional missing limb or mysterious growth, but through it all, this close-knit family sticks together. Sometimes literally.]]>

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"!)
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!!!!
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.
