About the show
"Rocko's Modern Life" is an animated television series that aired on Nickelodeon from 1993 to 1996. Rocko's Modern Life was based around the surreal, parodic adventures of an anthropomorphic wallaby named Rocko, and his life in the city of O-Town. The series was produced by Joe Murray Productions and Games Productions.
The series' main characters are Rocko, a mild-mannered wallaby; Spunky, Rocko's small pet dog; Heffer, a gluttonous steer raised by wolves; Filburt, a neurotic, hypochondriac turtle; Ed Bighead, Rocko's grumpy toad neighbor; and Bev Bighead, Ed's flirtatious wife.
Rocko's Modern News
Rocko's Modern Life has been cancelled, but is still airing in reruns on NickToons!
The episodes "Leap Frogs" and "Heff in a Handbasket" were banned from airing on Nickelodeon in the 90s because of unwanted content. Luckily, Nickelodeon forgot about this and aired the episodes on Nicktoons TV after they claimed that the episodes would not air any longer. The channel still does not remember the episodes should not air and have allowed them to air on NickToons!
The A.V. Club has written a fascinating article on the satirical nature of Rocko, drawing comparisons to Warner Bros. cartoons and the Mel Brooks film The Producers. Read it here.
