Episode Summary

EDIT
Disfigured Debbie
AIRED:
Milo runs for school president against Debbie Klimer, leader of the snobby Debbies, and he loses -- but then his opponent suffers a freak accident. The Klimer family fakes young Debbie's death while she goes under the plastic surgeon's knife, but the operartion is less than successful and Debbie returns looking like The Phantom of the Opera. Shunned by her upscale family and friends, The Oblong clan and the valley kids take in the reject Debbie as one of their own. But when Debbie's cheerfulness starts getting on everyone's nerves, the valley kids turn to the freakish school nurse to get Debbie back with the in-crowd.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (6)

      • The banner hung over the debate between Milo and Debbie reads "MILK VS. DEBBIE".

      • The number of buttons on Granny's belt changes from 3 buttons( a yellow, red and green) and 2 ( a red and green ) very frequently during the scene where Debbie is told she will be bunking with Granny.

      • Also in the scene where Debbie is being forced in the car, look closely and you can see that Debbie's father has a Charlie Chaplin mustache and Debbie's arms disappeared when she says that the car was built in America.

      • When Debbie's dad was forcing her into the car and Debbie runs away screaming that the car smelled like poor people, Debbie's face turns from threshed up to her normal face.

      • How is it that limbless Bob Oblong is able to drive a car? Granted he can probably steer the car, presumably the same way it is implied he plays the piano -- with his penis. But the Oblong car is clearly not specially constructed, so how does he reach the gas and brake pedals?!

      • When Debbie Klimer has her accident, first there appear to be 13 Debbies (during the production number) then only 5 are on stage. Later there are 7 (6 normal Debbies and 1 disfigured Debbie). At the end of the episode, there are 6 again.

    • QUOTES (8)

    • NOTES (7)

      • Songs: "Daydream Believer" by The Monkeys.

      • Also called 'Outcast Debbie.'

      • There is a character who looks very similar to Angus Oblong's self-portraits at the funeral.

      • This episode shows the most Debbies seen at once throughout the series, nine.

      • Although this was the second episode made, it was the eighth and final episode that aired in the USA on WB.

      • The show's opening segment and theme song first surface in this episode. The track is performed by "They Might Be Giants." Originally, the opening looked the same, but featured slightly different music with no lyrics. The musical composition that was going to be used appears over the end credits sequence of non-WB prints of the program, beginning with this episode. The lyrics are:

        "Oblongs! Oblongs! Down in the valley where a chemical spill came from the people living up on the hill, there's a family by the landfill with hazardous foam, in their happy glowing home. Oblongs!"

      • This episode was first broadcast on Cartoon Network on August 11, 2002.
