Originally airing from 1993-1996, the animated Rocko’s Modern Life follows the adventures of an Australian wallaby named Rocko and his two companions, Heffer Wolfe and Filburt, through their adventures in their home of O-Town.
“Following our news about Hey Arnold! and Legends of the Hidden Temple, greenlighting a Rocko’s Modern Life TV special is another strong example of how we are bringing our library content back for both new audiences and the generation that grew up on them in the ‘90s,” Chris Viscardi, SVP, Content Development, Nickelodeon Franchise Properties, said in a previous statement. “It’s a testament to the strength and appeal of these characters that so many people have loved Nick animation for these last 25 years, and we are excited to bring them back for new stories and adventures.”
Originally announced back in August 2016, the revival was set to be part of a lineup of returning Nickelodeon series including Rugrats, The Ren & Stimpy Show and Doug, alongside 2017’s Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie, which received very positive reviews from critics and acted as a definitive series finale for the series, including answering the whereabouts of his missing parents. After years of development, production and exchanging hands between Nickelodeon and Netflix, the revival is finally coming to life.
Nickelodeon also premiered its Legends of the Hidden Temple original TV movie in 2016, an action-adventure movie based on its ‘90s game show of the same name. Drawing from the original show’s premise of kids competing to retrieve artifacts from a mysterious Mayan temple, the new action-adventure TV movie version followed three siblings who embark on a high-stakes, life-or-death mission.
Rocko’s Modern LIfe: Static Cling is set to premiere on Netflix on August 9!
