It’s a great day to be a Rocko’s Modern Life fan!
On Thursday (June 22), Nickelodeon revealed announced that its upcoming Rocko’s Modern Life revival will reunite the original cast of the ’90s series.
Titled Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling, the special will feature the returning voices of Carlos Alazraqui as Rocko (he also voices Spunky and Leon) and Tom Kenny as Heffer (who brings to life Chuck and Really Really Big Man as well).
The rest of the cast includes, Mr. Lawrence as Filburt Turtle, Charlie Adler as Ed and Bev Bighead (in addition to Mr. Dupette, Grandpa Wolfe, and Mrs. Fathead), Linda Wallem as Aunt Gretchen and Dr. Hutchinson, Jill Talley as Nosey, and Joe Murray as Ralph.
For those of you who loved the original series, which followed the life of Rocko, the wallaby, and his two BFFs Heffer and Fliburt, you’re in luck because the special reunion is focused on all of your favorite characters from O-Town. There will, however, be a few new voices in town including, Adventure Time’s Steve Little, who will play Cowboy, and Cosmo Segurson, who will bring to life Pillow Salesman.
According to the release, the revival “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.”
Nostalgia seems to be going around, and we really can’t wait to see Rocko’s Modern Life back on TV with a twist. That being said, it’s not the only Nickelodeon series we want to see come back to life. In fact there are a LOT to choose from so, we want to hear which series you want to get the revival treatment next from Nick by taking our poll now!
Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling is set to premiere on Nickelodeon in 2018.
