It's almost as if it never ended
16 August 2019 | by gtimandan-224-384895See all my reviews

The entire cast and crew are on hand, and big spectacle is made about just how much things have changed since 1999 and especially animation today is poked at heavily by the characters since this special eschews the very commonplace computer-generated animation styles, that practically everything else has been made with the last 15+ years, in favor of its original, beautiful hand-drawn cells. It looks incredible, sounds incredible, and aside from a slightly faster and busier pace than that of the episodes, is otherwise spot-on and you'd be hard pressed to see much difference between then and now.

Some folks are trying to make issue, unfortunately, about a tiny subplot within this special but (no spoiler, as this is the way every 'lesson learned' show addresses its plots) it's wrapped up nicely and appropriately at the end and in fact the entire show seemed to zip by much too quickly; at 45 mins runtime, this would've filled an hour on regular TV but once it was over it felt to me as if it were even under 30 minutes which is likely due to my brain being overly busy analyzing and comparing things experienced here to their originals, and also being so incredibly pleased by how perfectly they've pulled this off two decades later.

If you're a Rocko's fan, I can't recommend this enough for a magnificent blast from the past with a healthy dose of current life and times slathered atop it. The chemistry is still there. Here's hoping this won't be the last we see of new Rocko's adventures either in episodic or short movie form.
