Angus Oblong commented in an interview that he was generally dissatisfied with this show and accused the producers of basically making a The Simpsons (1989) clone. See more »
[reading Biff's diary]
Ran laps behind Coach at practice. I hope someday to have his perfect buttocks.
Came in early today. Coach was alone in the jacuzzi. Boring!

Three 30-second scenes were created for promotional use, but none were ever used in their entirety. These included "Soot Day," which was edited and featured in some of WB's promos; "Birthday," which became the bobbing for laundry scene in "Flush, Flush, Sweet Helga;" and "Charades," which became a scene in "Milo Interrupted." The promo versions of these scenes were slightly longer and differed from what eventually appeared in the episodes. See more »
I really thought the Oblongs was a great show that was axed too soon but I can assume that if a show doesn't get the ratings that the network wants then it's more likely than not that the show is going to get cancelled. However I think that the show was canceled for all of the wrong reasons.
I especially enjoyed hearing the children go through all of the their particular issues. Biff and Chip going through their awkward stages of life being conjoined twins. Milo the marginally disturbed middle child who thinks that the world is out to get him and Beth who's socially challenged.
Then there's the parents Pickles the always drunk and chain smoking old hag and Bob the limbless head of the household. Then there's Milo's friends, Jawless Peggy, Neckless Helga and Mikey the kid with the huge butt.
If this is offensive to some people then it's quite possible that the people say this aren't really getting the message of this cartoon. The whole Oblong family is different and that's what makes them special.
