Return to a more modern O-Town in ‘Static Cling’
I am a huge Rocko’s Modern Life fan. I watched the cartoon all the time growing up. It had wacky characters, told some peculiar stories but these are some of the things that made it great. I even own the entire series on DVD. So when I heard Rocko and friends were coming back in Static Cling I couldn’t wait to see it. I was able to get a screener of this special and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Static Cling here:
After being in space for around 20 years, Rocko and his friends attempt to conform to an even more modern life in O-Town, where coffee shops are on every corner, food trucks offer multi-layered tacos, touch-screen O-Phones are being upgraded on a near-constant basis, an instant-print kiosk has replaced Rocko’s old job at Kind-of-a-Lot-O-Comics, and radioactive energy drinks turn their consumers into mutants.
Static Cling brought everything that made this show great and so much more. It did a wonderful job taking a look at modern society. Seeing how easily Heffer and Filburt adapted to it was surprising, while Rocko didn’t seem to like any of it one bit. When he finds out his favorite show has been cancelled he goes on a mission to bring it back. If you were a fan of Rocko’s Modern Life then you will want to check this special out.
