Netflix Sets August Premiere Date For ‘Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling’ Movie
Netflix has got some serious animated nostalgia heading your way in August, and the streaming service announces the premiere date for ‘Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling’.
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.
The original animated series ‘Rocko’s Modern Life’ ran from 1993 to 1996 on Nickelodeon in the US, and this movie brings together the original cast of Carlos Alazraqui as Rocko (& Spunky), Tom Kenny as Heffer Wolfe, Mr. Lawrence as Filburt, and Charlie Adler as Ed. The movie comes from show creator Joe Murray, alongside Cosmo Serguson, Dan Becker and Tom Smith. It also sees composer (and ex-B-52 member) Pat Irwin return to provide the music. We spoke to Pat about the upcoming film later last year which you can listen to here.
‘Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling’ premieres Friday, 9th August 2019 on Netflix UK and around the world.
