Why do the best shows get canceled? This show is hilarious (and normally I HATE Will Ferrel), and if I were you I'd watch every episode over and over until you have them memorized.

Funny, but not for everyone

"This series alternates between juvenile and demented. It's some of Will Ferrell's best work (outside his SNL material, of course).
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."
Finally!!!! (thank you thank you thank you)

""The Oblongs" is another one of those cartoons that is greatly underappreciated by the masses.
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"!)"
Great cartoon gone befor its time !

"The Oblongs are coming to dvd ! its about time this great twisted show gets a dvd set. dont listen to reviewer T. Casey who wants you to be a Barney fan like he is. The Oblongs cartoon is comedy gold. How can you go wrong with a show about a deformed family that lives next to a toxic waste dump ? well how can you go wrong ?.... im waiting for a answer !"
