It’s obvious that Nickelodeon has and continues to bring out some of the most iconic shows that generations after generations love watching. Hit shows including SpongeBob SquarePants, Hey Arnold!, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Rocko’s Modern Life have impacted the lives of many and have helped bonds get stronger and friendships be created. Needless to say, when Nickelodeon announced that it will be bringing back some of its legendary shows for some exciting specials and projects, we literally couldn’t contain our excitement, especially with the upcoming Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling special that is based off of the fan-favorite, 90’s show.
Nickelodeon just recently revealed that the outstanding and highly-anticipated special will reunite the original voice cast to reprise their roles in Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling. We’re super excited that the immensely talented cast will be joining together again for this extraordinary special – it will definitely bring the same magic that the hit 90’s show brought to all viewers.
According to the press release, “The voice actors reprising their famed roles include: Carlos Alazraqui (The Fairly OddParents) as Rocko, Spunky, and Leon; Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Heffer Wolfe, Chuck, and Really Really Big Man; Mr. Lawrence (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Filburt Turtle and Maitre D’; Charlie Adler (Blaze and the Monster Machines) as Ed Bighead, Bev Bighead, Mr. Dupette, Grandpa Wolfe, and Mrs. Fathead; Linda Wallem (Nurse Jackie, executive producer) as Aunt Gretchen and Dr. Hutchinson; Jill Talley (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Nosey and Joe Murray as Ralph. Additionally, Steve Little (Adventure Time) joins the cast as Cowboy and Cosmo Segurson (Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling, director) as Pillow Salesman.”
The fascinating and incredible special will focus on our favorite O-Town friends: Rocko, Heffer and Filburt and how they have to deal with, well, modern life and everything that comes with it – from delicious food from food trucks to the wonderful thing we love to use called social media. “Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling brings the characters back to Earth after being lost in outer space since 1996. Rocko has trouble accepting this 21st century modern life, while Heffer and Filburt embrace every aspect of new technology, social media and the endless diversity of food trucks. Rocko whole-heartedly believes that his nostalgia for the past can save him from the tortures of the modern world.” (source: press release)
