During today’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Nickelodeon treated fans to a sneak peek of the upcoming TV special Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling, based on the classic ’90s series Rocko’s Modern Life.
In the trailer above, Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling brings the characters back to Earth after being lost in outer space since 1996. Rocko has trouble accepting this 21st century modern life, while Heffer and Filburt embrace every aspect of new technology, social media and the endless diversity of food trucks. Rocko whole-heartedly believes that his nostalgia for the past can save him from the tortures of the modern world. The TV special is slated to premiere on Nickelodeon in 2018.
The TV movie will reunited the original series’ voice actors Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko), Tom Kenny (Heffer), Doug Lawrence (Filbert) and Charlie Adler (Mr. Big Head and Mrs. Big Head).
Additional voice actors reprising their roles include: Linda Wallem (Nurse Jackie) as Aunt Gretchen and Dr. Hutchinson; Jill Talley (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Nosey and Joe Murray as Ralph. New cast members include Steve Little (Adventure Time) as Cowboy and Segurson as Pillow Salesman.
Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling will premiere in 2018.
