The Oblongs - Oblongs Back Shot and Specs

Posted by Gord Lacey
We still don't have a release date for the set, but we have the back of the box, which reveals extras, and specs, for the upcoming DVD set.

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 Nerwork'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 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.

Special Features:
  • It's an Oblong World:
    The show's concept, characters and casting
  • The Art of the Oblongs:
    Angus Oblong-guided tour of his original artwork for the series
  • An Oblong Picture Book:

We can expect a full frame (1.33:1) picture, English stereo sound, and English, French and Spanish subtitles. We still don't have a date, but we expect that to be coming soon.
