    Description

    The Oblongs Painted Background Color Key Art Group of 3(Cartoon Network/Adult Swim, 2001). The home of Bob and Pickles Oblong and their strange children Biff and Chip (the conjoined twins), Milo, and Beth is seen in a fantastic large hand-painted background Color Key; it has an image size of 14.5" x 9.75". Also included are two Color Key paintings of Hill Valley Public School, in both day and night tones; image sizes are 16.25" x 10.5" and 17.5" x 10.5". All three are painted in gouache with airbrushed highlights on illustration board. 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 wonderfully weird. Two of the pieces (house and night school) have acetate overlays; the school overlay is in two pieces, with a fold bend in one. Art condition overall is Very Good with minor handling wear.
