Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: 'Rocko's Modern Life' The Complete Series

This week the complete series of Joe Murray's Nickelodeon cartoon Rocko's Modern Life is available on DVD for the first time ever. The show, which originally ran fifty-two episodes divided into four seasons from 1993 to 1996, developed a loyal fanbase and became a cult hit. As if being a widely celebrated and ground-breaking cartoon isn't enough, the show also has a lot of connections to cool comedies — Rocko is voiced by Reno 911's Carlos Alazraqui, and the show's crew and cast of voice actors includes a lot of people involved with other Nick cartoons like Ren and Stimpy and Spongebob Squarepants (including Spongebob himself and Mr. Show featured actor Tom Kenny). Included in the DVD extras is commentary from the creator as well as footage from a live performance that reunited the cast and crew in 2012. Having this DVD is an interesting addition to your collection and a must-have for fans of wacky alternative cult-hit cartoon shows.
