These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Oblongs
Adaptation Displacement: Loosely based on a picture book by Angus Oblong, Creepy Susie And 13 Other Tragic Tales For Troubled Children, but the show is more well-known at this point.
Anvilicious: Considering that most of the episodes were written by former writers of The Simpsons (particularly Al Jean and Mike Reiss), expect to see a lot of the family-sitcom preachiness (with a hint of dark, twisted humor to keep the treacle from sticking) that was prevalent on The Simpsons, though the biggest message the show keeps hammering home is the fact that American class oppression is alive and well (whether it's the rich screwing over the poor or the popular kids screwing over the unpopular kids).
