Rocko is a wallaby who has emmigrated to America from Australia. He lives in O Town and tries to get through life but, of course, comes across a multitude of dilemmas and misadventures he must get through. Other characters include Rocko's best friend, Heffer, a steer who has been raised by wolves, Filbert, an easily upset turtle, and Ed Bighead who detests Rocko and hates having him for a next door neighbor. On this show, Rocko has such adventures as trying to adapt to a new vacuum cleaner, having Heffer move in temporarily after his parents kick him out, and going to a movie theater.

The episode "The Good, the Bad, and the Wallaby" originally contained a scene where Heffer was hooked up to a milking machine, as well as a follow-up scene in which Heffer says goodbye to the milking machine. Both scenes were cut in later re-runs. See more
