  • Two hilarious episodes of Rocko's Modern Life.

    Cabin Fever: A very hilarious and perfect of episode of Rocko's Modern Life. It is about Rocko, Heffer, and the Bigheads going on a vacation. However, after Ed yelled, he, Bev, Rocko, and Heffer are stuck in the cabin. I thought it was hilarious that they shared the same cabin. Rocko pointing out that it is January instead of July (since it has snow) was hilarious. Ed throwing a snowball to Rocko and Heffer but then it went to him was funny. Ed doing shadows and the others answer stupidly was hilarious as well. Ed making a phone call and the guy kept mistaking something was the highlights in the episode. Also, I thought Ed yelling so loud that the snow is covered in the cabin was funny as well. Overall, it was super funny and perfect. 10/10

    Rinse and Split: Like Cabin Fever, it was perfect and hilarious as well. The plot is about Filburt trying to get Rocko go to the teeth thing. The beginning was funny since Filburt was trying to get Heffer. The flashback was kinda cool to see that Filburt and Rocko knew each other since they were younger. Dr. Hutchinson writing her name with her hook was funny. Filburt using Rocko's tooth was interesting. It was funny that one of Rocko's tooth grew big and then went on a rampage. When the rampage was over, the tooth returns to Rocko's mouth. The ending was funny as well. Overall, it was a mainly perfect and hilarious episode. 10/10moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Mr. Bighead: You see? I have my reservation slip right here; July 4th... (realizes the mistake)
      Rocko: But, Mr. Bighead. It's January.
      Mr. Bighead: But... but... but but but... but... but... bu-but...!

    • (Ed is doing shadow puppets. First, he does one of the Thinker. All the guesses are overlapped.)
      Rocko: Uh, let's see.
      Heffer: A tube of some kind?
      Rocko: Shoes, shoes!
      Bev: Uhhhhhh, cabbage, cabbage! It's a house plant!
      Rocko: Garbage.
      (Ed makes a shadow of the Eiffel Tower)
      Heffer: Oh, I know this one! It's the waffle iron! You can also use it to make pancakes on!
      (Ed makes one of a leaping deer)
      Heffer: Um, I give up. No, wait! I don't give up! A radiator! No, wait! It's either a hose or a radiator or a piece of radiator hose. I win!

    • Beaver Newscaster: (about the avalance on the cabin that Rocko, Heffer, and the Bigheads are in) It looks hopeless folks. They'll probably starve!
      Announcer: And now, we bring you cooking with "Chef Master!"

  • NOTES (3)


    • Poodle: That's a sweet puppy you got there, Roo!

      This is a reference to the Winnie-the-Pooh character Roo, a young kangaroo that is the son of his mother Kanga, and often hangs out in her pouch. Kanga and Roo have both appeared in the original books by A.A. Milne and in Disney's adaptations.

    • Allusion to Back To The Future when Filbert says to the tooth "Hey you...get your darn hands off of him."

    • Castaway: It's a movie! Lord of the Flies, oh, wait, Harold and the Purple Crayon!

      In this game of charades, the first title the castaway guesses is a novel by William Golding about a group of savage English boys. The latter is a series of books about a boy who creates his own world by drawing it with his purple crayon.

    • Filburt: It wasn't the hook. Twas' tartar killed the beast.

      This is a parody of the final line of dialogue spoken in King Kong (1933) after the ape's death, "It wasn't the airplanes... Twas' beauty killed the beast." Other elements here parody King Kong such as the big tooth kidnapping Hutchison and climbing on the Conglom-O Building.
