Keeping Up With the Bigheads:
Ed Bighead wants to dispose of Rocko, so he tips off a home inspector of Rocko's messiness, so Rocko must clean up before the inspector comes.
When Rocko gets pulled over by the police because his gas cap is missing, his car gets into the pound and he has to go through driving school all over again, where Rocko is repeatedly warned not to have "the fat guy" as an instructor.

Rocko: Hello, I need to get my picture taken for my license.
Leon: Oh! You passed.
Rocko: And I even got the fat guy!
Leon: Who? That? (points at the elephant guy sobbing uncontrollably) Oh, that's not the fat guy...THAT's the fat guy!
(Points outside to a group of students waiting for a driver test when a large pig in braces walks up and stands, letting his fat fall and roll over the group)
(about the paint mixed together in the cauldron)
Rocko: It's sorta brown or green.
Heffer: We'll call it breen.
Ed Bighead: Give up you tapeworms in the intestine of society!
German Cat Teacher: As far as I'm concern, you're all wild pigs!
Wild Pig: I'm a wild pig!
German Cat Teacher: Silence!
Filburt: These computer screens are radioactive, and the plate in my head is vibrating!
German Cat Teacher: AND GOD HELP IF YOU GET THE FAT GUY!!!
Onomotopeia: SCHLAM! (that's how it's written)
Instructor: That's not the fat guy, that's the fat guy!
That one dude in the DMV: Don't step on the white ones! HOT LAVA!....PINEAPPLES!
Heffer: You know what we need, Rocko, is some...FERTILIZER! You got the sports page?
Everybody in driving school (including clown in driver's instructional movie): Whatever you do, don't get the fat guy!
Child: Daddy! Daddy! Teacher says every time a gas cap is found an angel gets its wings!
Dad: YOUR TEACHER'S FULL OF SNOT!
Running gag: In "Skid Marks", the people at the DMV keep telling Rocko to "not get the fat guy" when he takes his driver's test.
The padd sounds can heard from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
In "Skid Marks," the censors missed yet again. The eye doctor lifts up Rocko's eyeballs and tells him to "cough." This joke is pretty straight-forward, marking another major miss for Nick.
First appearances of Filburt, the S.W.A.T. team, the police beaver, and Fran the Newscaster.
Behind The Title: "Keeping Up With The Bigheads" is a parody of the saying "Keeping Up With The Jonse's in which people buy cars and things of that nature to impress the neighbors.
The driving film:
This is a reference to the infamous driving tape, Red Aspault, which is known for its extreme blood and gore. However, this was later toned down.
German Cat Teacher: Now, I know some traffic schools where the students are allowed to take their tests like intelligent human beings. WELL THAT'S NOT THE WAY WE DO THINGS HERE!
The german-accented driving instructor cat scene in "Skid Marks" bears a striking resemblance to the "Hospital run by an RSM" sketch in Monty Python episode 26. In the Python sketch, a loud forceful "Sergeant Major" type doctor is seen dressing down a group of bandaged patients. At one point he says, "Now, I know some hospitals where you get the patients lying around in bed. Sleeping, resting recuperating, convalescing. WELL, THAT'S NOT THE WAY WE DO THINGS HERE, RIGHT!"
Child: Daddy! Teacher says every time a gas cap is found an angel gets its wings!
This is a reference to the line in It's a Wonderful Life (1946), in which a child says "Look, daddy. Teacher says that every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings!"
