Rocko's Modern Life

Show Summary

Rocko's Modern Life is the story of a wallaby, born and raised in the sunburned land Down Under, Australia. A few years ago, he left the comfort of his native continent and came to live in the United States (because of a bully named Dingo). Since then, he's managed to pick up an assortment of oddball, but well-meaning, friends including a gluttonous Heffer Wolfe (actually a Steer who was adopted by a family of wolves), a faithful pet pooch named Spunky, and a paranoid hypochondriac turtle named Filbert with a personal philosophy. "Turn the page, wash your hands, turn the page, wash your hands."

Other characters that frequently appeared on the show are The Bigheads (Rocko's irritable next-door neighbors), Dr. Paula Hutchison (an always smiling doctor-of-all-trades and love interest of Filbert), and two slippery characters known as The Chameleon Brothers (Chame and Leon). These folks live in a bizarre district known as O-Town, which is actually under the industrial monopoly of a huge corporation called Conglom-O (their slogan is 'We Own You'). Stephen Hillenberg still found success after Rocko, when he created SpongeBob SquarePants in 1999.

Most of the episodes revolve around Rocko trying to cope with the absurdities and difficulties in modern life and living in a place like O-Town, you can bet there are plenty of those!

Main Characters Rocko: A very "modern" wallaby from Australia who wears a blue shirt with purple triangles. His best friend is Heffer, and his pet dog is named Spunky.

Heffer: A very friendly yellow steer who has green spiked hair and wears blue suspenders with red pants. He loves EATING!

Filburt: All cartoons have a brainiac. In Rocko's Modern Life, it's Filburt. He's a turtle with funky glasses and green pants.

Spunky: A black-spotted, dumb dog. Rocko loves Spunky, so Spunky's life isn't so bad. Loves eating the Bighead's hedges, garbage and bathes in his own spit.

Ed Bighead: Wears a white suit with black tie. Rocko's neighbor and married to Bev Bighead. Works at the Conglom-O which rules the town. He is a strict guy. I sure know I would NOT want to live next to him.

Bev Bighead: Orange hair, green lips, green skinned, just like her husband, Ed. Wears: Pearls like Lisa Simpson's, and a blue and pink shirt. Unlike Ed, she loves Rocko and is very flirtatious.

Scheduled Times: Rocko's Modern Life is airing reruns on Nickelodeon's new channel, Nicktoons TV, at 3:00 P.M. and 3:30 P.M. on weekdays , at 12:00P.M. & 12:30 on Saturday and 6:00 P.M on Sundays. The series won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Film Sound Editing.

  • Rocko Monder Life Rocks!

    One of My favroite Nick Show got canned for no reason beacause it's werid yet CatDog is re-runing itself Why?

    beacsue they want childern to watch bullies alway win well for one thing CatDog is more "Tak & the Power of Juju" than "Veggietales" slick if soul less



    but Rocko will alway be Nick's verson of Veggietales beacause Ed Big Head never overdose the villian thing like Rancid Rabbit so Nick, I ask you to Bring it Back beause Link TV got an E-Mail saying that Rocko should air on May on Link TV Rock will always be loved by millions, Bring it Back.



    I think it's kind of stupid that the 90's Are All That would replace this show for that dumb CatDog show. CatDog is TeenNick's version of Johnny Test. (hate CatDog now?)moreless

  • Good show, but I prefer spongebob.

    This show was a pretty cool show. I didn't exactly grew up with it, but when I first watched it when I was 10, I really liked it. The show has really nice and fluid animation and the slapstick is pretty good too. But sometimes, the show can get reeeeeeeeealy wierd. Like in one episode, mr bighead imagined a meatball coming to life and then they went out on a date or something. And in another episode, rocko's teeth came to life, grew extra large and started acting like gozilla. Ooooookaaay? Also I can't beleive how many sexual innuendos this show got away with! If any modern cartoon was like this show, it would probably piss of a million soccermoms. But overall, really cool, but also really weird show. But I like spongebob better.moreless
  • best show on nick

    This show is amazing. Nick is really struggling now, with 'rocket monkeys' and 'hearts and farts'. Nicks glory days were obviously the 1900s. The shows like ren and stimpy, angry beavers, and rockos modern life, it was the best kids station. But with constant Spongebob, teen shows, and Nick studio 10, it sucks. Nick should bring these shows back.
