Flying by the Seat of our Pants: Rocko event was like the show. Loose & Fun
It was strange to have us altogether again. And the guys who were usually late to the records were late to the event as well. ( getting lost, flat tires, no excuses.) So no rehearsal, a quick sound check and we were off. And I have to say, these guys jumped into it like they did their last Rocko record yesterday instead of a 16 year break. Our moderator, voice actor Rob Paulson, did an all star job at keeping all of us in line, asking appropriate and inappropriate questions.
We ended up reading the episode Wacky Delly ( which I failed to mention that the animated version was directed by Mark, O’hare, Steve Hillenburg, Dan Povenmire and Swampy Marsh) Written by Martin Olson and myself.
Dan Povenmire and Swampy Marsh (former Rocko directors and co-creators of Phineas and Ferb) got up and sang the “Recycle Song” from Zanzibar ( With Dan at guitar). There was a crazy Q & A. A signing that went on a long time. ( Not complaining.) I also had some former students at the event as well who came a long way to catch it.
I also formerly announced that my wife and I are expecting a baby, due in March. I’ll try and shield him (her) from the brain damaging effect of Rocko for awhile.
Thank you to everyone who attended, helped, supported. We are discussing doing it again. We will see.
