Good Burger 2 Talks Are Happening Confirms Kel Mitchell
Could Good Burger 2 actually be happening? Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell optimized 90s Nickelodeon with Good Burger when it was released in 1997. The movie may not have been a hit with critics, but plenty of 90s kids hold a special place in their hearts for Good Burger and, more than 20 years later, quite a few people want to see a sequel happen. Including Kel Mitchell, who reveals in a recent interview that the sequel may actually be happening and conversations are taking place.

Kel Mitchell recently answered fan questions for BuzzFeed. The interview covered a range of subjects, but inevitably, the topic of Good Burger and a possible sequel came up. Somewhat surprisingly, Mitchell revealed that actual conversations about just such a thing have started recently and that there's "something in the water." Here's what he had to say about it.

"The conversations have started. There's something in the water,

New trailer released for Nickelodeon documentary The Orange Years

  • JoBlo
As a 90s kid, Nickelodeon was definitely a big part of that childhood. Rocko's Modern Life, Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, Pete & Pete, Clarissa Explains It All (one of my earliest crushes) were all on constant rotation in my house. So I am certainly intrigued about the upcoming documentary The Orange Years, which is about the formative years of the youth-oriented cable channel. ... Read More...

Emily S. Whitten: Nickelodeon, Squishy Seats… and Me!

  • Comicmix
Recently I had the opportunity to visit the Nickelodeon Animation Studio and their new Entertainment Lab in Burbank, CA. I chatted with Chris Young, Senior Vice President for the Entertainment Lab; Chris Savino, creator of The Loud House; and Farnaz Esnaashari-Charmatz, creator of Shimmer and Shine. I played around in their newly developed immersive and interactive Vr experience; sat in on a recording session for Shimmer and Shine; stopped in to say hi to Ciro Nieli, executive producer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and see his cool office; and viewed all kinds of creativity in progress during the studio tour.

And let me tell you: the experience was awesome.

As in, so awesome, I’m wondering how Alternate Me could get a job there. Because let’s be honest – there are office jobs that look like The Office, and then there are workplaces like Nickelodeon, which has slime stairs, a SpongeBob wall,

‘Rocko’s Modern Life’ Revival First Teaser Unveiled by Nickelodeon

‘Rocko’s Modern Life’ Revival First Teaser Unveiled by Nickelodeon
Rocko, I have a feeling we’re not in the ’90s anymore.

Nickelodeon released a first look at the reboot of its beloved cartoon “Rocko’s Modern Life” at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday afternoon during the show’s panel. The clip features voice actors Carlos Alazraqui, Tom Kenny, Doug Lawrence and Charlie Adler.

Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling” picks up with Rocko, Heffer, and Filburt’s return back to Earth after being blasted into outer space in 1996. The teaser shows Rocko and his crew embracing (or at least trying to embrace) the modern world for the first time — technology and all.

Back in their home of O-Town, the trio is introduced to now long-adapted traditions, including iPhones, social media, food trucks, energy drinks, and 3D printers. While his friends adapt to the new social and technological realities of the modern age, Rocko clings to his nostalgia for the past, believing

First Look At Rocko's Modern Life TV Special

  • Cinelinx
Nickelodeon went to San Diego Comic Con with Rocko, and we got our first look at the upcoming one hour special.

The one hour special marks the return of the show for the first time in over 20 years since it ended. The cool thing about the special is that it time lapses with the gap, meaning the characters have to adjust to "modern times" instead of being back in the 90's when the show aired.

The shows creators have noted that the one hour special will have a heavy message about technology and how much this world relies on it, especially compared to the generation of when the show originally aired. In order to make this work, the shows creators note that the characters have been literally drifiting in space for 20 years and have returned to a more advanced world.

The entire original cast has returned for the one hour special titled "Static Cling,

‘Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling’: First Look at Revival Movie Debuts at Comic-Con — Watch

‘Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling’: First Look at Revival Movie Debuts at Comic-Con — Watch
Rocko’s Modern Life” is about to take a fresh look at modern life, and the animated wallaby — who hasn’t been seen since 1996 — isn’t exactly a huge fan of what he sees.

The opposite could be said of his fans, who gave a rapturous ovation to the first footage screened publicly of the new movie, “Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling.” The revival special doesn’t debut until 2018, but Comic-Con attendees got to see Rocko, Heffer, and Filburt return to earth — after being stuck in space for the last 20 years — and witness how they experience a modernized O-Town for the first time.

“The last time we saw our heroes, they were in outer space. This picks up exactly where we left off,” director Cosmo Segurson said during the hour-long panel discussion. “They’re reacting to now. The characters have not changed — decidedly so.”

Rocko’s Modern Life reunites original voice cast for TV movie

Last August it was revealed that the beloved 90s cartoon Rocko’s Modern Life is set for a return to Nickelodeon for a one-hour TV special, and now it has been announced that the original voice cast has signed on for a return to O-Town for Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling.

EW reports that the returning cast includes Carlos Alazraqui as Rocko (as well as Spunky and Leon), Tom Kenny as Heffer (as well as Chuck and Really Really Big Man), Mr. Lawrence as Filburt Turtle, Charlie Adler as Ed and Bev Bighead (plus Mr. Dupette, Grandpa Wolfe, and Mrs. Fathead), Linda Wallem as Aunt Gretchen and Dr. Hutchinson, Jill Talley as Nosey, and Joe Murray as Ralph.

Rocko's Modern Life Movie Gets a Title, Brings Back Original Cast

Rocko's Modern Life Movie Gets a Title, Brings Back Original Cast
Rocko, Heffer, Filburt, and yes, Spunky the dog, along with the rest of O-Town are headed back to Nickelodeon for the long-awaited Rocko's Modern Life revival next year. More than twenty years after it first went off the air, one of the most fondly remembered shows of Nickelodeon's golden age is coming back for a special TV movie. The good news? The entire original cast is set to return for the special, which has been given an official title as well.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Nickelodeon has officially titled the upcoming one-hour TV special, Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling. Joe Murray, who created the original series, is on board to write and executive produce the special for the network, which is another very important piece of the puzzle for fans. Here's the synopsis for Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling. And yes, Rock and the gang have been in outer space for more than two decades.

"[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."

Interesting approach. It seems that they are aware that the audience who used to watch the show has grown up and, as such, they are taking a bit of a social commentary approach. More importantly than that, all of the voice actors who made Rocko's Modern Life what it was are going to reprise their roles for the show. Carlos Alazraqui is back primarily as Rocko, but also Spunky and Leon. Tom Kenny, the man behind Spongebob, is back as Heffer, in addition to Chuck and Really Really Big Man. Other cast members include Mr. Lawrence as Filburt Turtle, Charlie Adler as Ed and Bev Bighead, Linda Wallem as Aunt Gretchen and Dr. Hutchinson, Jill Talley as Nosey, and Joe Murray as Ralph. Two new cast members in the form of Steve Little (Adventure Time) and Cosmo Segurson have also come on board.

This is not the only Nicktoons revival that the network currently has in production. Nickelodeon is also going to be airing Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie later this year, as well as an Invader Zim revival next year. 90s nostalgia is not something Nickelodeon is willing to ignore at this point.

Rocko's Modern Life aired for a total of four seasons from 1993 to 1996 with a total of 52 episodes. The series, in the same vein of something like Ren and Stimpy, has some mature themes hidden within the framework of a kid-friendly TV series. Like the theory that Rocko works for a phone sex hotline, for example. We can only hope that Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling will bring in some of that same mature humor. Nickelodeon has yet to set a release date for the special yet, but we will be sure to keep you up to date as more information is made available.
