Trivia / The Oblongs

  • Cross-Dressing Voices:
    • Literally, with the always versatile Billy West, who voiced pre-op transsexual barkeep Anita Bidet (and Anita back when she was a man as seen in "Please Be Genital").
    • Pamela Segall Adlon voiced Milo (using the voice she would later use for Otto Osworth on Time Squad).
  • Fan Nickname: Milo's friends are called the "Clubhouse Kids".
  • Missing Episode:
    • Because of how badly The WB mishandled The Oblongs, "Misfit Love," "Helga Interrupted," "Bucketheads," and "Disfigured Debbie" were the only episodes that aired. It wouldn't be until [adult swim] picked up the show that the rest of the episodes would air in America (although Canada got the entire series, and all the episodes are available on DVD).
    • If you lived in Australia around the time this show aired, it's worse, as the show was canceled halfway through the first episode due to complaints about content.
  • Screwed by the Network: Canceled in its original run after five episodes on the WB. Attempts to keep it alive failed, though all 13 episodes eventually aired on [adult swim], and a revival is said to be in the works.
  • Word of Gay: In an interview with the voice actors, they confirmed that Biff is gay while Chip is straight.
