Description

    The Oblongs Painted Background (Cartoon Network/Adult Swim, 2001). Created by Angus Oblong, and loosely based on the book Creepy Susie and 13 Other Tragic Tales for Troubled Children, this wacky animated series was spectacularly strange. As such, it had trouble finding an audience until it ended up on Adult Swim and became a cult classic, the 13 episodes showing in occasional re-runs. This hand-painted production background featuring the Danville School ("Making Special Children Average since 1954") was created in gouache on illustration board with an image area of 8.5" x 6.25". It is signed by Angus Oblong on the backside. In Excellent condition.
