There's A New Rocko's Modern Life Movie And We Aren't Sure How To Feel About It

- Page 1

Rocko's Modern Life was one of the best shows of the 90s. It was goofy enough for kids to enjoy, while also hiding some SUPER inappropriate jokes for the grownups watching with their kids.

Well, apparently the world of reboots and remakes does not ever stop, because it's been announced that the popular 90s cartoon will be coming back!

It's part of the Nickelodeon's 90s revival that seems to be going on. They are also releasing a Legends of the Hidden Temple TV movie and a new Hey Arnold movie. Rocko will be coming back for a one-hour TV special in 2018 and the title is Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling.

The special is a continuation of the series, picking up after the series finale "Future Shlock". If you can't remember what happened, Rocko, Heffer and Filbert all got shot into space. The plot of the special follows all your favorite characters as they return to Earth and try to figure out how to live with all the changes that have happened since they left.

“Heffer and Filburt embrace every aspect of new technology, social media and the endless diversity of food trucks, [while] Rocko whole-heartedly believes his nostalgia for the past can save him from the tortures of the modern world.”

So essentially the network is making a 90s cartoon where the main character is nostalgic for the 90s.

There is one silver lining to this special! Click to the next page to see the best part about this new movie.

Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival.

Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all

13 Secrets From The Set Of 'Married With Children' That'll Make You Believe In Love And Marriage

Married...With Children is one of those shows that felt different from all the rest. Every other sitcom was trying to put forward this false homage to the happy family, but honestly, that's not the way the real world was. There is always a little bit of conflict in the real world. We don't all get along all the time and yes, sometimes we can be a little inappropriate. The only family that seemed to give us a more accurate representation of family life was the Bundys. Al Bundy was a little bit rough around the edges, and Peggy was
