There doesn't appear to be a board concerned with Rocko's Modern Life, I've decided to create one.

I'll send you the intro

(It's a flat out amazing cartoon, probably my favorite toon ever!)

Unfortunately I'm too young to have had the pleasure growing up with this show, but I was lucky enough to find it on netflix and I watched the entire series. I love this show so darn much, that my profile is named after it.

I was actually wondering if your name was based of the show a few days ago, lol.

One of the dirtiest kids shows ever, and I only caught reruns. [youtube:CWplbcjU4q4]

@rayword
It definitely is, that's one reason I love it so.

I'd forgotten all about this show. Thank you for bringing it up. Loved watching it, as I did most of the Nickelodeon toons from that time. I can recall Rocko the wallaby, Heffer the cow raised by wolves, a married toad couple living next door and The Fatheads show. Great laughs. Maybe I'm out of touch, but I don't see many left-of-centre cartoons nowadays. Correct me if I'm wrong. Time now to find some episodes to show my son what Dad used to watch. Thanks again.

Anyone remember the episode with the cult who worshiped Schnitzel?

@Taceus
You're welcome! Based on the fact that you're a dad, I can assume that I'm a much younger fan, but trust me, it's as good and better than you remember. Since I watched the series over the past 4-5 months, it's very fresh in my mind.

Would I be safe to assume that out of everyone here, I'm the one who's viewed it most recently? (Not to sound important or anything, just curious)

Probably. Nicktoons airs nothing worthwhile now. They got rid of classic Nick cartoons and replaced it with... Reruns of cartoons already airing on Nick and some really crappy new shows.

I used to watch it a lot as a kid, but now I have no idea how I did so, lol.

Catching reruns recently, I was just unable to get back into it. Just not a big fan of the art style & gross out humor that this & Ren & Stimpy have.

I find it much better than Ren & Stimpy, it's much more clever and has less in your faceness.

@Rocko52 : I adore both series. They're a lot more mature than most other Nicktoons, despite their childish humor.

Don't they have Avatar & Dragon Ball Z Kai? Those two are singlehandedly better than the rest of Nick's lineup combined, IMO.

I'll agree that it's been falling apart a bit, though. They have like 3 or 4 different Power Ranger shows (seriously, WTH).

That's fine. Everyone likes what they like

I'm just not personally fond of that gross out style that became popular in the 90's (especially on Nick). This also includes CatDog, which I forgot to mention before.
