Update (8/10) - Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling has been certified 100% FRESH by Rotten Tomatoes!

In Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling, picking up over two decades after the 1996 finale of the original series, after being in space for around 20 years, Rocko, Heffer, Filburt, and Spunky attempt to conform to an even more modern life in O-Town, where coffee shops are on every corner, food trucks offer multi-layered tacos, touch-screen O-Phones are being upgraded on a near-constant basis, an instant-print kiosk has replaced Rocko’s old job at Kind-of-a-Lot-O-Comics, and radioactive energy drinks turn their consumers into mutants! The movie will also feature a prominent trans story arc, in which Rocko tries to get his beloved series The Fatheads back on TV!

Created by Joe Murray and originally airing from 1993-1996, the animated series Rocko’s Modern Life follows the adventures of an Australian wallaby named Rocko and his two companions, Heffer and Filburt, through their adventures in their home of O-Town. Just like the original ‘90s series, "Static Cling" is hand-drawn special that stars Rocko, a wallaby who emigrated from Australia to the United States and enjoys the simple things in life; Heffer, Rocko’s best friend; Filburt, Rocko’s other best friend; and Ed Bighead and Bev Bighead, Rocko’s neighbors; as well as the other colorful characters.

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 movie will also feature Tom Smith as the voice of Really Really Really Big Man, and Dan Becker as the voice of Rabbit Dad.

The show launched the careers of noted voice actors Tom Kenny and Carlos Alazraqui; after the show’s cancelation, much of the creative talent moved on to SpongeBob SquarePants, the hit show created by Rocko creative director Stephen Hillenburg.
