  • Definitively one of the best episodes of "Rocko's Modern Life". The Fatheads scenes are really surreal and bizarre.

    El capítulo da una introducción a "Los Cabezagorda" una bizarra y surreal caricatura de la cual Rocko y Filburt son fanáticos. Al terminar el episodio dice que fue creado por Ralph Cabezagrande, ahi Rocko y Filburt sospechan que es pariente de los Cabezagrande vecinos suyos, y acertaron pero resulta que Ed Cabezagrande no quiere saber nada ya que detesta el hecho que su hijo se dedique a hacer dibujos animados y haber rechazado el trabajo en Conglom-O. Ahi Bev le pide a Rocko que intente reunir a la familia para su aniversario de casados, ahi emprenden una aventura hasta Holl-O-Wood para buscarlo y convencerlo pero no será fácil.

    Es genial desde el comienzo hasta el final...

    al principio empiezan con los cerditos hablando de la forma mas bizarra, y las escenas finales cuando la serie se auto-parodia es sobervio!!!

    La parodia de Rocko, Rollo es GENIAL jajajaja que risa!!!

    este capítulo demuestra lo genial, surreal y bizarro que "La vida moderna de rocko" puede llegar a ser!!!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Filburt is going through all the Fatheads merchandise during the studio tour, when he says "Oh what the hey!" his teeth are missing.

    • If Rocko and Filburt had been watching the Fatheads all those years, why did they JUST discover that Ralph Bighead may be the Bigheads' son?
      RESPONSE: No one ever pays attention to the credits so it's possible they didn't notice his name.

    • When Bev tells Rocko all about Ralph, tears come down from her eyes and she blows her nose with the photo album. In most of the episodes, Ed and Bev both complain about how they don't have noses.

    • When the frog dances with Rocko, he flings him up to the ceiling, then pulls him down. When we see this, Rocko's shoe comes off, but in the next scene it's on again.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Ed Bighead:(Taps glass) Attention everyone! I'd like to make a toast to my lovely toad of a wife, Bev. I remember the day we met, our tounges tangled around the same fly carcas.

      Bev Bighead: Oh Ed!

      Ed Bighead: To thirty years of marriage without a single regret.

    • Ed: Time for my bubble bath. Toot-toot.
      Bev: Coming, Captain Cupcake!

    • (Mrs. Bighead tells Rocko the whole story behind Ralph)
      Rocko: So, what happened?
      Mrs. Bighead: Come to think of it . . . I . . . don't . . . know!

    • Ed's Nephew: (referring to Rocko, who's hanging from a lamp) Uncle Ed, can we bust the piñata now?
      Ed: Piñata? Sure.

    • Ralph: (after hearing of his parents from Rocko and Filburt) I never want to see those two again. Never. Never! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! (close-up) NEVER! (points to a sign that reads, "Never") NEVER! (sticks his head out of of porta-potty door) NEVER! (holds an exploding bomb on a plate) NEVER! (stands on stage with a lot of hams) NEVER! NEVER!! NEVER!!!

  • NOTES (6)

    • Martin Olson (writer for the show and future voice for Hunson in Cartoon Network's Adventure Time) insisted on Joe Murray (creator of the show) to voice Ralph Bighead, which he did. Despite Joe Murray never considered himself to be a voice actor, this made it his first voice role in the show.

    • Starting with this episode and lasting till the end of the series, a new version of the theme song was used, performed by the B-52's.

    • The joke when Ralph keeps screaming, "NEVER!!! NEVER!!! NEVER!!!!" repeatedly is that Joe Murray (the creator of Rocko's Modern Life and the voice of Ralph Bighead) has never ever screamed in his life.

    • The Fatheads sequences were created by Mr. Lawrence, a writer for the show and the voice of Filburt.

    • First appearance of the Fatheads and Ralph Bighead.

    • This was the first full-length 30 minute episode of Rocko's Modern Life.
