Dialogue For New "Rocko's Modern Life" TV Movie Recorded; Crew Working On Design And Animatic Stages

Joe Murray, the creator of Nickelodeon's iconic original animated series (Nicktoon) Rocko's Modern Life, has posted a few updates about the production status of Nickelodeon's upcoming brand-new Rocko's Modern Life TV movie on his official Journal!

In a post in November 2016, Joe revealed that the Rocko's Modern Life special will be about “Change”.

Joe has also announced that the dialog for the movie has been recorded, and that the production crew are currently deep into design, backgrounds and animatic stages of the film. Joe also mentions that he'll be visiting Korea in January 2017 for the next stages of the movie.

Rocko Crew hard at work.

Joe also revealed in a post earlier this month that the production crew are painting the backgrounds for the movie traditionally rather than digitally, with pencils and paper getting used, which is a rarity in the animation business these days.

To celebrate Nickelodeon's upcoming Rocko's Modern Life TV movie, Joe has also unveiled a fantastic photo from the movies' storyboard featuring a few thumbnails of a deleted scene from the film! In the scene, Spunky becomes radioactive after drinking a power drink. Poor Spunky:
