The Oblongs: a hidden gem in adult animation | Boing Boing:

The race to capitalize on the popularity of The Simpsons became a gold rush in the early 90s. In many ways, that gold rush still exists today. Rick and Morty might be a different show from a structural standpoint, but the greasy fingerprints of Homer Simpson can be found on almost every scene of Adult Swim’s monster hit. The only difference in contemporary adult animation is that today’s creators benefit from hindsight and can gracefully avoid the pitfalls of other Simpsons clones. In addition, audiences don’t view adult animation as a fad anymore. Modern adult animation is a bonafide genre that can tackle any concept beyond the traditional dysfunctional/wacky family.
