'Rocko's Modern Life' Returns As A TV Movie In 2018

Back in 2015, Nickelodeon revealed a plan to plunder its back catalogue to bring back some of its most beloved series for fans both old and new. This initiative has already seen the greenlighting of revivals for Hey Arnold and Invader Zim. Next to be lined up is the 90s cult animated sitcom Rocko's Modern Life.

Joe Murray's series followed a shy Australian Wallaby named Rocko as he tried to navigate the minefield of modern (90s) life. The series was pretty notorious for its smuggling of adult jokes into a show that originally aired on a kid's network. Like its contemporary Nicktoon Ren and Stimpy, the series actually aired in a primetime slot in the UK. It originally ran for 4 seasons between 1993 and 1996.

The new TV movie will see Rocko attempt to contend with the 21st century, complete with new technology and social media. His friends Heffer and Filbert embrace it, but Rocko tries to hang on to the past.

The one-hour TV movie will feature the original voice cast, including Carlos Alazraqui, Tom Kenny, Charlie Adler, Linda Wallem and Joe Murray. Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling will air on Nickelodeon in 2018.
