NICKELODEON'S BRAND-NEW TV SPECIAL "ROCKO'S MODERN LIFE: STATIC CLING" REUNITES ORIGINAL VOICE CAST TO REPRISE ROLES

BURBANK, Calif.--Thursday, June 22--Nickelodeon announced today that its brand-new, original one-hour TV special Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling, based on the classic '90s hit series Rocko's Modern Life, will reunite the original voice cast members who will bring their iconic characters back to life. The special is written and executive produced by the series' original creator Joe Murray and will premiere on Nickelodeon in 2018.

The voice actors reprising their famed roles include: Carlos Alazraqui (The Fairly OddParents) as Rocko, Spunky, and Leon; Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Heffer Wolfe, Chuck, and Really Really Big Man; Mr. Lawrence (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Filburt Turtle and Maitre D'; Charlie Adler (Blaze and the Monster Machines) as Ed Bighead, Bev Bighead, Mr. Dupette, Grandpa Wolfe, and Mrs. Fathead; Linda Wallem (Nurse Jackie, executive producer) as Aunt Gretchen and Dr. Hutchinson; Jill Talley (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Nosey and Joe Murray as Ralph. Additionally, Steve Little (Adventure Time) joins the cast as Cowboy and Cosmo Segurson (Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling, director) as Pillow Salesman.

Just like the original '90s series, this hand-drawn special stars Rocko, a wallaby who emigrated from Australia to the United States and enjoys the simple things in life; Heffer, Rocko's best friend; Filburt, Rocko's other best friend; and Ed Bighead and Bev Bighead, Rocko's neighbors; as well as the other colorful characters.

Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling brings the characters back to Earth after being lost in outer space since 1996. Rocko has trouble accepting this 21st century modern life, while Heffer and Filburt embrace every aspect of new technology, social media and the endless diversity of food trucks. Rocko whole-heartedly believes that his nostalgia for the past can save him from the tortures of the modern world.

Originally airing from 1993-1996, the animated series Rocko's Modern Life follows the adventures of an Australian wallaby named Rocko and his two companions, Heffer and Filburt, through their adventures in their home of O-Town.

Fans can revel in the nostalgia of the original series and catch updates on the new special by following Rocko's Modern Life on Instagram and Facebook.

The Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling TV special is one of Nickelodeon's three animated properties from its rich library reimagined for today's audience, including the upcoming TV movies Hey Arnold!:The Jungle Movie set to premiere this fall, featuring a storyline that picks up from where the original series ended in 2004; and Invader Zim, following the perpetually desperate and delusional Zim as he creates a new and potentially Earth-destroying plan to finally get the attention he deserves from his Irken leaders, the Almighty Tallest.
