Rocko's Modern Life returning for one-hour even-more-modern special


I’d wear Rocko’s shirt in a heartbeat

Rocko’s Modern Lifewasn’t my favorite Nicktoon. It came out in the second (or third?) wave of Nicktoons where I was just getting a bit too old and “cool” to watch (until I got older and “cooler” and started watching again). Anyway, some folks love it, so they’ll be chuffed that the ol’ Wallaby with the super ’90s shirt is coming back for an hour special.

Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Clingbrings back the entire cast, as you can probably tell from listening in the trailer. Evidently Rocko, Heffer and Fillburt were in space so they haven’t been around since the ’90s resulting in Rocko having a hard time acclimating to the modern world. So… basically the original, but with smartphones.

Maybe it’s just my bad memory of their voices, but everyone sounds drastically older in this trailer. I mean obviously they are, but it’s a bit weird hearing it alongside animations that haven’t changed.

Check out the trailer and be reminded just how dangerous laundry day can be.
