[Television] Nickelodeon unveils first footage for Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling special at #SDCC 2017
Remember Rocko’s Modern Life? It was another one of those animated series from the ’90s that were secretly targeting adult audiences, who ended up falling in love with the characters. Now, Nickelodeon is back with a brand-new television special, Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling.
The Rocko’s Modern Life panel was moderated by Marc Snetiker, and reunited the original series’ voice actors Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko), Tom Kenny (Heffer), Doug Lawrence (Filbert) and Charlie Adler (Mr. Big Head and Mrs. Big Head), and featured series creator Joe Murray and Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling director Cosmo Segurson.
Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling brings the characters back to Earth after being lost in outer space since 1996. Rocko has trouble accepting this 21st century modern life, while Heffer and Filburt embrace every aspect of new technology, social media and the endless diversity of food trucks. Rocko whole-heartedly believes that his nostalgia for the past can save him from the tortures of the modern world. The TV special is slated to premiere on Nickelodeon in 2018.
This is pretty much a no-brainer. Must watch. Must see. Must enjoy as I attempt to make one last grab at the fond memories and lifestyle I enjoyed while I was in my mid-twenties.
