Original Cast of Rocko’s Modern Life Coming Back for TV Movie
Get ready for another nostalgia trip because Nickelodeon just announced the the original cast of the classic Nicktoons series, Rocko’s Modern Life, are all returning for next year’s made-for-television movie entitled Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling.
We’ve known since August that Nickelodeon was bringing back the show with a one-hour TV movie, but bringing back the entire principal cast wasn’t set in stone yet, until now. The movie was written and produced by the show’s creator, Joe Murray.
The movie will follow the gang’s return to Earth in the 21st century after being lost in space since 1996 (when the series ended after four years). Heffer and Filbert seem to adjust to the changes just fine, but poor Rocko doesn’t find this brave new world as much fun.
The world of a timid Australian wallaby who found a chaotic new home in the American city of O-Town will again be brought to life by Carlos Alazraqui (who voices Rocko, Spunky, and Leon the Chameleon), Tom Kenny (Heffer, Chuck the Chameleon, and superhero Really Really Big Man), Mr. Lawrence (Filburt), Charlie Adler (Ed and Bev Bighead, Conglom-O CEO Mr. Dupette, Grandpa Wolfe, and Mrs. Fathead), Linda Wallem (Dr. Hutchinson, and Crazy Aunt Gretchen), Jill Talley (Nosey), and Joe Murray (Ralph Bighead).
Joining the cast will be Steve Little (playing a character called Cowboy) and the film’s director Cosmo Segurson (as a pillow salesman).
Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling will premiere sometime in 2018.
