Feeling unwanted by her husband, Mrs. Bighead invites neighbor Rocko over to "fix a few things around the house." But little does our wallaby hero know of Mrs. Bighead's ulterior motives.
When Heffer is forced out of his parents' house, he decides to come and live with Rocko. Eventually, though, the two roommates' very different life start to conflict with each other.

Only Rocko's shirt is removed when Rocko enters the nudist party, but in the next scene, his shoes are gone too.
(Rocko stands with a trash can on instead of clothes)
Rocko: I want all you nudists outta here this instant! (cut to Rocko at his front door) And stay out! At least I have my dignity.
Heffer: Hey Rocko!
Rocko: What have you done?
Heffer: Pretty cool, huh? Gave all your dull old stuff to charity.
Heffer: You can thank me over dinner. I made us my specialty.
(Rocko and Heffer go to the kitchen)
Heffer: Voila! The Heffer deluxe.
Rocko: (takes a bite) Hef, this is bonza! What's in it?
Heffer: Well, let's see, there's pickled banana shavings, gym socks, canned haggis, beetle bladder, real processed head cheese, salt peter, reconstituted corn sweat, the finest barley and hops. (Heffer's dish starts to crawl away so he stabs it) Hmm, now where was I, pot ash, sulfur, mono sodium glutamate, and vegetable catalidge as a binding agent.
(Heffer is about to lay down on Rocko's couch before he is interrupted)
Couch: Now listen here, tanker touche. You can park your thunder cheeks in someone else's face because I deserve better than this! Sayonara butterball!
(Bev has fallen and gotten stuck in the blender. Two flies dressed like Vaudeville actors land near the buttons)
Fat Fly: Hey, Mr. Fly! What's red and green and goes 100 miles an hour?
Skinny Fly: I don't know, Mr. Fly. What's red and green and goes 100 miles an hour?
(Fat Fly jumps on a button, causing the blender to start spinning Bev inside. When it stops, she's now a pair of eyeballs floating in a green liquid)
Both Flies: YUK-YUK-YUK-YUK-YUK! (both dance off screen as curtain closes)
(Ed walks into his home. Rocko has no shirt on. Bev is handing him a bit of cash. She sees him, and plants a large smooch on him. Rocko steps back.)
Rocko: Uh, er... Mr. Bighead! It's not what you think! I was just (points)... um, and she...
(Rocko begins falling apart, like a Jenga game.)
Ed: (angry) You saw my wife in her bath robe? (disturbed) Isn't it awful?
Ed: BEV! I can't believe it! Do you have what that weirdo next door is up to?
Bev: Oh, shut up and mind your own business, Ed.
Ed: But Bev, they're, well...NUDE!
Bev: (hurrying to the window and looking through the binoculars) Oh, Ed, oh, you're right. Oh, yes, this is disgusting! Quick, Ed, get the telescope out of the whole closet.
Bev: (Rocko is screwing in a light bulb) Rocko, darling. Can I interrupt you for a moment, sweetheart? Um, there is a spider in the bathroom. Would you mind just shooing him out for me, dear?
Rocko: Don't worry, Mrs. Bighead. I'll get rid of him.
(Rocko opens the bathroom door. A rather large spider struggles on the toilet, holding a newspaper. The spider sees Rocko)
Spider: (Yiddish accent) Hey! Vad is dis, a sideshow?
Heffer: Man, I this wild dream . . . electric eels were . . . biting my butt!
Heffer: Rocko, living here has allowed me to explore new facets of my personality. I am a nudest.
Ed: (after being hit by Cupid's arrow, singsongy) Oh, Beh-ev.
Bev: Yes, Ed.
Ed: (seriously) We're almost out of mouthwash.
Once Rocko fixes the VCR, we see two frogs. One of the frogs, who is a woman, has clearly visible breasts.
Even though this is a season 1 episode, in the edited version (the one where "Wallaby on Wheels" is shown instead of "Leap Frogs") original opening credits theme was not replaced with the newer theme, but the closing credits theme was.
When this episode is re-aired on Nicktoons, "Wallaby on Wheels" replaces "Leap Frogs" due to its sexual content.
In "Bedfellows," the name of the band playing at the nudist party in the backyard is called "The Dangles." I guess Nickelodeon didn't catch the joke.
"Bedfellows" is the first episode in which both Rocko and Heffer appeared naked on screen.
First appearance of Ed Bighead and the Wolfe family.
"Leap Frogs" was banned by the Nick censors because of its subtle sexual innuendo (and a scene where a spider is on the toilet) and replaced with another episode when reran.

This is a homage to the classic TV show, The Odd Couple.
