Rocko’s Modern Life, the beloved Nickelodeon series from the 90’s, will see the release of the fourth and final season on DVD from Shout! Factory on October 15th. This comes over two years after the release of the first season on DVD, so fans collecting the individual sets will be happy to complete their collections by adding The Final Season DVD this fall.
Several months ago I purchased Rocko’s Modern Life: The Complete Series DVD set. Yes, The Complete Series set was made available before the fourth season DVD, which is somewhat unusual and caused fan uproar, but that’s another topic. Having a brother ten years younger than I, we often watched the show together. In fact, had it not been for him I would have missed a lot of the 90’s Nickelodeon cartoons. But my younger brother loved them and we watched many of them regularly, including Rocko’s Modern Life. Even then I could tell that Rocko was a strange cartoon. There really wasn’t a point to it. It was just wacky, crazy fun, which is what made it great. It somewhat reminded me of Ren & Stimpy, which had been popular around that time.
