Disc News: More Rocko in February

Rocko’s Modern Life comes from that era when Nickelodeon produced numerous animation shows that weren’t aimed directly at 5 year olds. The show followed the adventures of an Australian wallaby and his goofy cow pal. The show features none other than superstar Tom Kenny. His voice is known best as SpongeBob SquarePants. Rocko’s Modern Life: Season Two arrives on February 7. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:

Rocko, Spunky and Heffer are back for more wacky adventures and surreal moments in modern life as they know it in O-Town. Relive more hilarity-filled misadventures of Australian wallaby Rocko and his gang when Rocko’s Modern Life: Season Two 2-DVD set arrives in stores nationwide for the first time on February 7, 2012 from Shout! Factory. Packed with all 22 brain-popping adventures and special bonus content, this DVD set features an all-new cover art illustration by series creator Joe Murray. The collectible Rocko’s Modern Life: Season Two DVD set 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 boasts an all-star voice cast — Carlos Alazraqui (CatDog), Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), Charlie Adler (Aaahh!!! Real Monsters), and Doug Lawrence (SpongeBob SquarePants). Memorable antics from Season Two include a bad hair day for newspaper photograph, Rocko’s Modern Christmas special, Rocko and Filburt’s travel to TV Central, appendicitis and more!

Rocko’s Modern Life is one of the most celebrated Nick animated classics. A favorite with viewers and critics alike, this hit animated series 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 is a production of Joe Murray Productions and Nickelodeon Animation Studios. It has been sub-licensed for home video distribution to Shout! Factory by Paramount Home Entertainment and Nickelodeon.
