Nickelodeon has released a first online look at “Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling,” the upcoming telemovie special that revives the characters from the classic 1990s series “Rocko’s Modern Life”.
The story brings the characters back to Earth after being lost in outer space since 1996. Rocko the wallaby has trouble accepting this 21st century modern life and whole-heartedly believes that his nostalgia for the past can save him from the tortures of the modern world.
Meanwhile, Heffer and Filburt embrace every aspect of new technology, social media and the endless diversity of food trucks.
Original series voice actors Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko), Tom Kenny (Heffer), Doug Lawrence (Filbert) and Charlie Adler (Mr. Big Head and Mrs. Big Head) along with creator Joe Murray and director Cosmo Segurson all showed up yesterday for the special’s Comic Con panel in San Diego.
“Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling” is slated to premiere on Nickelodeon in 2018.
