Okay, we told you they're sick, and were 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 Oblongs book Creepy Susie and a regular denizen of Cartoon Networks [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.
