Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Whats a wallaby to do when hes surrounded by annoying neighbors, freeloading pals, heaps of laundry and the weight of life in general? Why, turn to his loyal canine, Spunky, dim-witted best pal, Heffer and neurotic nay-sayer Filburt to help him confront the trials and tribulations of modern life.
Created by Joe Murray (Camp Lazlo, Frog In A Suit) and starring Carlos Alazraqui (CatDog, RENO 911), Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), Mr. Lawrence (SpongeBob SquarePants) and Charlie Adler (Aaahh!!! Real Monsters), Rockos Modern Life originally aired in 1991 on Nickelodeon and has since become a cult favorite all around the world. One of the few brilliant cartoons to break through the genre and emerge as a truly original television experience, Rocko inspires the artist in us all!

One downside is there is no episode list within this set and the DVD extras are sprinkled through the set (they are found on the same DVD as the previous individual season releases). Also, the episodes are still censored (like the previous released Seasons).
Season 1 contains no extras
Season 2 has the original Pilot "Trash-O-Madness" with the original YELLOW version of Rocko and "Behind the Characters" with Joe Murray (info about the characters while Joe shows you how to draw them - Rocko, Heffer, Filburt, Ed and Bev)
Season 3 has an original selected scene commentary by Joe Murray - it's a separate video not audio over a certain episode; the video has Joe discussing certain clips from Season 3.
Season 4 has a 51 minute excerpt of "Rocko Live" (referred to as "Wacky Delly" Live 2012 on the DVD). This was a live event in California in October 2012 which included Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko), Tom Kenny (Heffer), Mr. Lawrence (Filburt), Charlie Alder (Ed and Bev Bighead) with Joe Murray (creator of the series and voiced Ralph Bighead) and hosted by Rob Paulsen. They did a live read of the first act of Wacky Delly and they also discussed working on the show.
Shout said that they weren't sure if the Season 4 separate release would contain the Live event - but I bet it will.Read more ›
If your a fan of the show, this is what you've been waiting for!
Prior to this set Rocko's Modern Life was getting individual season dvd's, which is fine, but it's much easier and more cost efficient to buy it all in one nicely packaged box set and here it is! One of the greatest Nicktoons of all time finally released in it's entirety with a few added bonuses as well.
All 52 episodes are present in order by air date spread across 8 discs, including the "Leap Frogs" episode where Bev Bighead tries to seduce Rocko. This episode was eventually taken off air during the shows original run because of it's adult theme.
-The cover art was drawn by the creator of the show Joe Murray!
-The DVD case is the size of two standard DVD cases put together.
-The case is firm and solid plastic(not an eco-case, thankfully).
-The inside of the case features a beautifully drawn scene of all the characters in front of Rocko's house.
-Overall a visually pleasing and high quality box set.
There are Four bonus features on this set.
-Behind the Characters with Joe Murray (Season 2 Disc 2)
This is a fun bonus feature, Joe Murray shows how to draw some of the main characters of the show and briefly explains the characters backgrounds and how they where created.
(This feature was previously released on the season 2 set)
-Trash-O-Madness pilot (Season 2 Disc 2)
This is the original 7 minute pilot episode that was never aired on television and produced in 1992. Half of the episode was animated by Joe Murray and it features a very yellow Rocko.Read more ›
No, what you get is a very simple DVD box with all 8 DVDs. The reverse of the cover features original art done by Joe Murray, which is awesome.
The DVDs are even better. No annoying advertisements, just the episodes you paid for, and every single episode is included (even the pilot where Rocko's painted yellow is here!) Sadly, a couple of scenes were removed (the berry scene from Hut Sut Raw and the milking machine scene are gone entirely), but it doesn't take away from the quality of the episodes.
For an old school Nicktoon enthusiast like me, this was a blessing, and I hope Shout Factory continues to churn these collections out, -exactly- like this. I recommend this to anybody who loved the show, and to those who are just now getting into Nickelodeon, you should get this, too, 'kay?
Perfect score, don't regret buying this one bit.
