Rocko’s Modern Life – The Complete Series DVD Arrives This Month


Rocko's Modern Life - The Complete Series DVD Arrives This Month

This coming February 26th, 2013, Shout! Factory will be releasing the long-awaited Rocko’s Modern Life: The Complete Series on DVD for the first time. The DVD set will feature all 52 episodes of the hit animated Nickelodeon show via 8 hilarity-packed DVDs. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Shout! Factory release if there’s no bonus content. The 8 DVD box set is loaded with all-new, never before seen bonus material, including an original cover by series creator Joe Murray.

If you’re too young to remember what Rocko’s Modern Life was, or if you’ve been living under a very heavy rock, the show was a breakthrough hit when it first aired on Nickelodeon back in 1993, and ran for four seasons until 1996. The show follows the titular immigrant Wallaby and his new life in the city of O-Town. The show is one of the first animated comedy shows to tackle American life and how it appears in the eyes of an immigrant – of course, it’s wrapped up in a ton of hilarious jokes, in-jokes, and randomness. Rocko’s Modern Life also came with a rich roster of side characters, such as the gluttonous steer Heffer, the neurotic turtle Filburt, and Rocko’s faithful pet dog, Spunky. The show is also one of the first Nick toons to use adult humor, double entendres, innuendos, and even satirical social commentary. In a way, it was the precursor to SpongeBob Squarepants.
