Rocko’s Modern Life was probably one of the best things to come out of the 90’s Nicktoons Era. The show was smart, funny, and weird in a way that actually spoke to me. Today, Nick and creator Joe Murray have announced that the show will be getting a reboot in the form of an upcoming TV movie. Here’s Murray’s statement:
“I’m very happy to be rejoining Rocko and my friends from O-Town again. What I have found by bringing these characters back is that it’s not so much about nostalgia, but a sense that they still feel relevant and fresh to me, and after 20 years, they can’t wait to comment on modern life in the 21st century. They still have a lot to say.”
Currently, there’s no talk of a new series, just an hour-long TV movie, but I’m sure that will change if the special draws enough views.
