Rocko's Modern Life: Season 1 DVD Review

I remember getting up on Saturday mornings and racing my sister to the living room to watch Saturday morning cartoons. We would turn on Nickelodeon and one show that I remember is Rocko's Modern Life. Rocko always finds himself in strange situations that are usually brought on by his friends that, for the most part, are clueless to what is going on. I loved watching Rocko's Modern Life and laughing with my sister. I was sent a copy of Rocko's Modern Life: Season 1, to review. Its funny because even though it has been years since I have seen these episodes, I can still remember them as if it were yesterday. And I can laugh along with my kids!!! You can own Rocko's Modern Life: Season 1 on DVD this Tuesday June 21st!!

lash back to one of the most beloved animated Nickelodeon series from the 1990s when Rocko’s Modern LifeSeason 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. The hit series boasts an all-star voice cast – Carlos Alazraqui (CatDog, Reno 911), Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePantsTransformers animated series), Charlie Adler (The Super Hero Squad ShowTransformers), and Doug Lawrence (SpongeBob SquarePants,  Camp Lazlo).
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.
