Rocko's Modern Life

Rocko's Modern Life

Rocko's Modern Life follows the tale of a wallaby from Australia, named Rocko. He has recently moved from the land down under to live in the United States to escape a childhood bully. His new life in O-Town is interesting, to say the least. He meets and makes friends with Heffer Wolfe (a gluttonous steer who was adopted by a family of wolves), Filbert Shellbache (a paranoid turtle that lives in a trailer and follows one simple philosophy; turn the page, wash your hands), and his pet dog Spunky.

Other residents of O-Town include his next-door neighbors The Bigheads (Ed, the angry one and Bev, the flirtatious one), Dr. Paula Hutchison (a doctor-of-all-trades and the love interest of Filbert), The Chameleon Brothers (Chame and Leon, the entrepreneurs), and a large host of other wacky and bizarre characters. The town itself is the home of Congolm-O, a large corporation with the slogan of 'We Own You'.

Rocko's Modern Life first aired on Nickelodeon in 1993 and ran for 4 seasons, until it abruptly ended in 1996. Stephen Hillenburg (who wrote and directed many of the episodes) found success after Rocko's Modern Life, when he created SpongeBob SquarePants in 1999.
