    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (4)

      • (Clean Gene the Hygiene Machine is showing a very old documentary film to Rocko, entitled "Say Hi to Hygiene"...)
        Narrator: Say HI to Hygiene! (shows kids playing in a playground) Hygiene: the principles of maintaining good health and proper cleanliness.
        (We see a dirty and smelly hippo boy, eating lunch alone from the other kids...)
        Narrator: This is Jimmy. (Jimmy drops sandwich, a dog licks it and walks over it, and Jimmy resumes eating it) He has poor hygiene.
        (Jimmy scratches his hair, and we see lice working on an oil rig as a buzzer begins sounding...)
        Louse Worker: Let's go, boys! She's gonna blow! (the lice flee, the oil erupts and spills over Jimmy's face)
        Boy: (on jungle gym with other kids) Hey, look at me. I'm King Kong!
        (Jimmy joins on the jungle gym, but all the other kids fall off due to Jimmy's horrible B.O.)
        Narrator: Poor Jimmy. He'd have more friends if he bathed once in a while. Tsk, tsk. Bad Jimmy! (we see Jimmy's messy, unclean bathroom as a towel turns to slime)
        (Jimmy opens his mouth, and his horrible breath causes the flies buzzing around him to choke and drop dead. Then Jimmy takes a donut out of his pocket and bites it, only to shatter his teeth.)
        Narrator: Poor Jimmy. A little oral hygiene could have saved those teeth!
        (Now we see Jimmy walking on railroad tracks, with a fast steam train approaching in the distance...)
        Narrator: With good hygiene, you'll not only have more friends and be less offensive to those around you... you could live longer.
        (Jimmy steps off the track at the last second, and as the train speeds past, he picks some wax out of his ear and flicks it away. Then we see images of kids showing good hygiene over a shot of different hygienic products...)
        Narrator: So remember kids, don't be a Jimmy.
        (We go back to the playground with the kids playing, as the train from earlier chugs past.)
        Narrator: (shaky audio) Wash those stinky places, and say Hi to Hygiene!
        (The film stutters in the projector and then breaks.)

      • Peter Wolfe: Whoa, Heffer's dating our dinner.

      • Rocko: I'm no comedian! I just have a funny accent!

      • George Wolfe: Uh, son, there . . . uh . . . comes a time in, er, every man's life when he has to . . . uh -
        Heffer: (interupting) Uh, Dad, is this about the birds and the bees?
        George Wolfe: No!
        Heffer: Are you sure?
        George Wolfe: Yes, I'm sure!
        Heffer: 'Cause if it is, I --
        George Wolfe: NO! It's not about that! It's about growing up from boy to man!
        Heffer: Oh-ho, so this is about the --
        George Wolfe: VIR-GIN-IAAAAAA!

      • Clean Gene: (about to drill Rocko's teeth) Now this is going to hurt you a lot more than it's gonna hurt me.


        This is what Sergeant-Major Reynolds said to Private Hook in the movie Zulu (1964.)
