Season 3[]

The Obertones made a brief appearance in That's Too Much, Man!, when Penny Carson walked past them on the Oberlin campus and complemented their sound.

BoJack and Sarah Lynn were watching Penny from behind the bushes at the time and were about to leave. BoJack drunkenly stumbled into them and knocked them over like dominoes.

The trio harmonized as they fell, thus alerting Penny to BoJack's presence. Penny then states she doesn't want to see BoJack, as the last time she saw him was when she was seventeen and didn't know any better. The crowd of college students recognizes BoJack and Sarah Lynn, and begin to take pictures of them, so they leave as a frightened Penny disappears into the crowd.
