Product Description

What’s a wallaby to do when he’s surrounded by annoying neighbors, freeloading pals, heaps of laundry and the weight of life in general? Why, turn to his loyal canine, Spunky, and dim-witted best pal, Heffer, to help him confront the trials and tribulations of modern life. Season One tosses Rocko and his pals into the surreal worlds of the DMV, the carnival, health clubs, vacuum cleaners, bath time, trash day and, of course, the ongoing battle with the cruel and petty Ed Bighead. The best part? You can now get all of Rocko’s Season One escapades on two hilarity-packed DVDs!

Stars Carlos Alazraqui (CatDog), Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), Mr. Lawrence (SpongeBob SquarePants) and Charlie Adler (Aaahh!!! Real Monsters)!

Review

Rocko’s Modern Life was ahead of its time and you clearly see where shows such as Family Guy and SpongeBob SquarePants got a bit of inspiration from…Overall a great buy -- 16BitMonster, June 21, 2011

Just as I hoped! Those who were unhappy with the Amazon MOD sets for Nickelodeon, mainly because many were only "Best Of" sets missing key episodes, can now purchase an actual proper stuido set. These DVD's are being made the old fashioned way and being released by Shout! Factory. The fact that Shout! now has the rights to this classic Nickelodeon show is a promising sign as far as I'm concerned. They often try their hardest to gather and create some special features for fans to enjoy and if nothing else at least this time you are getting the complete first season, all episodes included.

*Worked on by the man who would later create Spongebob Squarepants, Stephen Hillenberg, Rocko's Modern Life is a classic show from the best days of Nickelodeon and its animated series'. Rocko, our favorite wallaby, moves from down under and begins a new life in O-town. A small burb that is corporately owned by a company called Conglom-O, their slogan, "We Own You". With his new friends Hefer Wolfe, a cow raised by a family of wolves, Filbert, a paranoid obsessive compulsive turtle (think Woody Allen), and his dog Spunky, he has a series of misadventures trying to cope with the absurdities of modern day life. You can't forget his neighbors the Big Head's, Ed always had an agenda against Rocko and his friends while his wife Bev was always quite fond of Rocko, perhaps too much so.

Episodes Included:

1 No Pain, No Gain / Who Gives a Buck?

"'Rocko's Modern Life'? I used to watch that show all the time when I was a kid!" If you've ever had this conversation with someone, this set is for you.

Rocko's Modern Life is one of the classic shows from Nick's early lineup. It's kid-friendly, but has several more adult moments (a few of which were removed; more on that later). If you grew up watching this show, this is a great investment and a fantastic nostalgia trip.

PACKAGING
The box art is fairly standard fare (as you can see pictured above). The spine maintains a similar color scheme. It has a picture of Rocko on the bottom looking up. The back has the logo on the top and a large white space with some text describing the show and summarizing some episode concepts. There's also a large picture of Spunky (Rocko's dog) on the back. The standard information is provided on the bottom, including the notation that this show is closed captioned.

The case is clear plastic. Inside, there are two disc trays. Disc 1 features Rocko and disc 2 features Spunky. There's an insert advertising other DVDs available for Nick series. On the rear of the sleeve art are episode summaries which are very easy to read and use different color schemes to differentiate between episodes. Heffer and Rocko are pictured by these summaries.

While I don't have any real complaints about the packaging, I do have to point out an observation: there is a clear effort to associate this show with Spongebob Squarepants. There is a sticker on the front that names 3 of the voice cast who worked on both this and Spongebob, and the same information is provided on the back in the large text blurb.

This has been a long time coming for us 30 somethings! I honestly never thought I'd see the day that I could share this awesome cartoon classic with my daughter! Now lets hope we get the rest of the seasons too! I already have Ren & Stimpy and now Rocko is coming out too! It's the 90s era of cartoon genius all over again! Life couldn't be better! .... Well a girlfriend would be nice too! lol

Format: DVD
After watching the first few episodes, I thought nostalgia wouldn't be enough to make me finish washing the set. However, it got better and I found myself really enjoying it. The most disappointing thing is that the the funniest scene I remember from when I saw it as a kid was removed. In "The Good, the Bad and the Wallaby," there was a scene in which Heffer is erroneously attached to a milking machine and subsequently develops a romantic interest in it. Had I read the other reviews, I would have known it was censored, and probably wouldn't have bought it. I suppose if you're buying it for young kids the censorship is good, but I would guess the majority of people interested in the show are adults who want to see it as they saw it as kids. I will have to make certain season two has no cuts before I buy it.

The cuts are very disappointing.

Like many of the reviewers here, I've been a fan of Rocko's Modern Life since I was a kid. I still remember watching this wacky cartoon make its debut on Nick back in the fall of '93 and being totally blown away by it, and shown by my rating, this is one of those rare childhood cartoons that not only has aged well, but has actually gotten better with age!! The only other nostalgic cartoon series off the top of my head that achieved this was Batman: The Animated Series. This is so because when you get older, you can comprehend the hidden "adult" jokes.

LACK OF CENSORSHIP AND UNECESSARY EDITS

I'm glad that RML creator Joe Murray didn't pull any of the nonsense that John Kricfalusi did when Ren and Stimpy were released on DVD (I'm still angry about John K. messing with that show). The episodes on this DVD are almost exactly like you remembered from when you watched them as a kid. The only edit that I can name off the top of my head is the infamous "milking" with Heffer from "The Good, the Bad, and the Wallaby." Other than that, I couldn't notice anything out-of-place.

HUMOR

Rocko's humor is very impressive compared to other cartoons, since it's one of those rare cartoons where there's humor that kids will enjoy, and adult jokes that are very subtle to a child's mind, in that only an adult can spot them.

Video Quality
Yeah, it definitely doesn't look all that great on HDTVs. There are lots of sections that seem kind of grainy and almost out-of-focus, but for the most part it's never annoying enough to be unwatchable. Doubtful we'll ever see any remastered or retouched copies though, but hopefully future season... Read More
