Obese Orson is a character that only appeared in "Back in Style", where the Warner Siblings were forcibly inserted into his show. He is a parody on Fat Albert; the titular character from Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

History []

The segment starts with elderly version of Obese Orson, lamenting how the Warner Siblings sense humor was incompatible with his own show.

The episode then shifts to the show proper, where Obese Orson sings to the Warners about how he will chant a message to them. When the Warners tell him they just want to have some fun, Orson exclaims his indignation and decides to join with his friends to discuss the Warners' disturbing behavior.

After being joined by his friends, they and Orson explain to the Warners that they don't like to have fun and rather preach pro-social values to the audience. Orson then decides to banish the Warners from his show. The Warners are absolutely delighted by this and start to kiss Orson and his friends. When Orson commands his friends to get the Warners, one of them explains that they can't, because they already burned through the animation budget for the episode, parodying Filmation's extremely limited animation style. After this, the segment ends.
