Flash black to one of the most beloved animated Nickelodeon series from the 1990s when Rocko’s Modern Life: Season One 2-DVD set arrives in stores nationwide for the first time on June 21, 2011, from Shout! Factory. Featuring all 26 wacky adventures of an Australian wallaby and his pals in 13 original episodes (two segments per episode), this DVD release has long been anticipated by fans but has not been available in stores until now. The collectible Rocko’s Modern Life: Season One DVD is priced to own with a suggested retail price of $19.93.
Created by award-winning animator Joe Murray for Nickelodeon, Rocko’s Modern Life is one of the most enduring Nick animated classics.

A favorite with viewers and critics alike, Rocko’s Modern Life debuted in 1993. Over the course of its four-season run on Nickelodeon, the series garnered a Daytime Emmy® Award and an Environmental Media Award. Brimming with anthropomorphic social satire and offbeat humor, Rocko’s Modern Life follows the misadventures of Australian wallaby named Rocko, who encounters various dilemmas and situations regarding otherwise mundane aspects of life. His best friend, Heffer, is a fat and enthusiastic cow, while his other friend, Filburt, is an easily upset turtle who often feels uncomfortable or disturbed. Ed Bighead lives next door to Rocko and detests him. These folks live in a bizarre district known as O-Town, and most of the episodes revolve around Rocko trying to cope with the absurdities and dilemmas he encounters in life.
Rocko’s Modern Life is a production of Joe Murray Productions and the Nickelodeon Animation Studios. It has been sub-licensed for home video distribution to Shout! Factory by Paramount Home Entertainment and Nickelodeon.
Emmy® is a registeredtrademark of the Academy for Television Arts & Sciences/The National Academy for Television Arts & Sciences.
Side Splitting Humor
Rocko’s Modern Life had to be one of the best shows offered on Nickelodeon between 1993 and 1996, so I was ecstatic to receive an advanced copy for review! The animated classic was great, because it appealed to adults and children alike. The episodes were filled with plenty of side splitting humor and sometimes were just outright wacky!
The storyline is about a wallaby (Rocko) who has emigrated to America from Australia only to find himself living in O Town and surrounded by annoying neighbors, freeloading pals, and various problems of modern life. His trusty canine, Spunky, and overly plump plus dim-witted best friend, Heffer, help him get through the hysterical misadventures. In Season One Rocko is faced with the dilemmas of joining a health club, traveling by plane, vacuum cleaners, trash day, bath time, and more!
