Rocko's Modern Life is an animated television series created by Joe Murray. The show aired for 4 seasons between 1993 and 1997 on Nickelodeon. Rocko's Modern Life is based around the surreal, parodic adventures of an anthropomorphic wallaby named Rocko, and his life in the city of O-Town. Originally from Australia, the show explores his American life as well as the lives of his friends: the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko's faithful dog, Spunky. The show is laden with adult humor, including double ententes, innuendos, and satirical social commentary. Rocko's Modern Life generally received positive reviews during its original broadcast run and in recent years has seen renewed praise for sophisticated and subversive humor. The series also has over time developed a devoted following of fans, making many commentators deem it a cult television show. The show was the fourth Nicktoon and was on the 90s Are All That block from September 5th to September 23rd. However, it made a comeback in a vote against The Angry Beavers.

Spiritual Successors

Many people consider the popular Nickelodeon show "SpongeBob SquarePants" to be a spiritual successor since the fact many of the writers and voice actors (Derek Drymon, Tom Kenny, Doug Lawrenece.) also worked on Rocko. "Phineas and Ferb" and "Camp Lazlo" are also spiritual auccessors for the same reason.

Broadcasters

Aside from operating on Nickelodeon in most countries, Rocko's Modern Life was aired on many other private channels around the world.
