The stupendous Nickelodeon has been giving us all the ultimate #Throwbacks recently and we are loving it! With recent announcements of iconic shows like Hey Arnold! getting a new movie set to premiere in 2017 titled Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie, and the highly-anticipated movie, Legends of the Hidden Temple airing in the fall, Nickelodeon has been bringing together the generations who grew up watching these shows along with the generations now for some incredible viewing pleasures.
Nickelodeon just celebrated a sensational milestone yesterday, August 11th, as it welcomed in its 25th year of original creator-driven animation. From animated shows to live action series, and of course, all of Nickelodeon’s legendary award shows, Nickelodeon continues to create masterpieces that allows viewers and Nickelodeon stars to create everlasting memories through these amazing projects.
In celebration of this outstanding milestone, Nickelodeon announced some more marvelous news. The animated show that stole everyone’s hearts – Rocko’s Modern Life, will be returning to our TV screens for a one-hour TV special. How amazing is that?! In fact, the series’ creator Joe Murray will be joining the project again as executive producer.
Joe Murray shared his excitement over being a part of this one-hour TV special of Rocko’s Modern Life and said, “I’m very happy to be rejoining Rocko and my friends from O-Town again. What I have found by bringing these characters back is that it’s not so much about nostalgia, but a sense that they still feel relevant and fresh to me, and after twenty years, they can’t wait to comment on modern life in the 21st century. They still have a lot to say.”
Rocko’s Modern Life revolved around the fun adventures of an Australian wallaby named Rocko and his two friends, Heffer Wolfe and Filburt in O-Town. More information regarding the air-date and casting of the TV special will be announced at later dates.
According to the press release, “Following our news about Hey Arnold! and Legends of the Hidden Temple, greenlighting a Rocko’s Modern Life TV special is another strong example of how we are bringing our library content back for both new audiences and the generation that grew up on them in the ‘90s,” said Chris Viscardi, SVP, Content Development, Nickelodeon Franchise Properties. “It’s a testament to the strength and appeal of these characters that so many people have loved Nick animation for these last 25 years, and we are excited to bring them back for new stories and adventures.”
Nickelodeon has truly created phenomenal bonds amongst families and friends as they share many great memories watching all of the exceptional Nickelodeon content and shows. We all can’t wait to see Nickelodeon’s fantastic projects including Legends of the Hidden Temple, Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie, and now we can add the Rocko’s Modern Life one-hour TV special on to the list of things we are super excited to see.
