Poor Rocko. After his star turn in the ‘90s, not much has really changed for the poor, beleagured wallaby. Still hanging out with his old friends. Still navigating the surreal messiness of contemporary existence. At least now, thanks to Boom! Studios, he’ll get to do it all in comic book form.
Usually, when television networks resurrect long-canceled series, the newly-revived characters’ stories pick up sometime in the future, with everyone having gone on living their lives. That’s not the case with Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling. Apparently, they’ve been stuck in the ‘90s.
It looks like even cartoon characters miss the ’90s. Rocko’s Modern Life, cancelled after four seasons in 1996, is set to return with an hour-long special, Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling, and Nickelodeon has brought back the original cast for one more adventure in O-Town.

Anyone who watched Nickelodeon growing up better take a seat. Jared Hess, the co-writer and director of Napoleon Dynamite, has just signed on to combine all of your favorite Nickelodeon characters in one massive, live-action animated hybrid movie.
Not to be outdone by human actors, the characters from various Nickelodeon cartoons have donned their favorite superhero costumes and are ready for their turn on the big screen. Joss Whedon didn't plan for the likes of Iron Zim, Captain Bluffington, and the Bulk.
