Hollywood has reboot fever and Nickelodeon, the network responsible for 80% of your childhood memories, is no exception. Nick already has a Hey Arnold! TV movie in the works, along with a Indiana Jones-style take on Legends of the Hidden Temple. Now we can add one more project to the mix: an update of the animated sitcom Rocko’s Modern Life.
Thursday, the 25th anniversary of Nick's first animation block, the network announced an original one-hour TV special, with Rocko’s original creator Joe Murray on board as executive producer. According to a press release, the new Rocko's Modern Life TV special will "bring back all the show’s classic characters and offer some surprising new takes on life in O-Town."
Rocko’s Modern Life holds a place in many a millennial heart. Off-kilter, tempered, and overflowing with brain goo, the serrated series thrived in Nick's creator-driven animation utopia. It didn't look like anything else on TV then, and it certainly doesn't now.
