Rocko’s Modern Life reboot gets title, original cast

Posted on

Everett Collection

The original voice cast members who brought Rocko, Heffer, Filburt, and the rest of O-Town to life will reunite for Nickelodeon’s forthcoming one-hour TV special, Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling.

The one-off TV reboot will premiere on Nickelodeon in 2018, written and executive produced by series creator Joe Murray.

Reprising their roles in the voice cast are Carlos Alazraqui as Rocko (as well as Spunky and Leon), Tom Kenny as Heffer (as well as Chuck and Really Really Big Man), Mr. Lawrence as Filburt Turtle, Charlie Adler as Ed and Bev Bighead (plus Mr. Dupette, Grandpa Wolfe, and Mrs. Fathead), Linda Wallem as Aunt Gretchen and Dr. Hutchinson, Jill Talley as Nosey, and Joe Murray as Ralph. Steve Little (Adventure Time) and Cosmo Segurson have also joined the cast.

According to Nickelodeon, the TV special “brings the characters back to Earth after being lost in outer space since 1996. Rocko has trouble accepting this 21st century modern life, while Heffer and Filburt embrace every aspect of new technology, social media and the endless diversity of food trucks. Rocko whole-heartedly believes that his nostalgia for the past can save him from the tortures of the modern world.”

Along with the revived Rocko, Nickelodeon will also welcome a new TV movie featuring the cast of Hey Arnold! this fall, as well as a special starring Invader Zim.
