Just One More Toxic Family
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 the indignities of being "different" in a "normal" world. The Oblongs are not so much dysfunctional as slightly nonfunctional. Living next door 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.
