Rocko's Modern Life (TV Series 1993–1996) Poster

(1993–1996)

Trivia

In the first two seasons, the diner where the characters always eat is "Chokey Chicken", which has a giant choking chicken as a mascot. In the third season, "Chokey Chicken" became "Chewy Chicken". There are many hidden sexual references in Rocko's Modern Life, and this was one of the more blatant ones. It was changed because the show is designed for a young audience.
Jobs held by the main five characters:
  • Rocko: Mostly as a comic store employee, but has also spent time as a runway underwear model and an animator.


  • Filbert: It was established in one episode that the turtle is a professional photographer. He has also spent time as a lounge singer, a clerk for the DMV and an animator.


  • Heffer: Has had the most jobs including security guard, golf course greens-keeper, coffee shop barista, animator, and Chewey Chicken employee.


  • Mr. Bighead: Works for Conglomo as an executive in many departments.


  • Mrs. Bighead: Is a housewife who spent a week as a Conglomo top executive.

Rocko was originally supposed to be colored yellow. The color was changed because a toy marketing company informed Nickelodeon that they were interested in producing a doll, but already had a character that was yellow. The color was changed to beige, and, after the pilot aired, Nickelodeon got rid of the toy deal.
