Big Rocko News

Shout Factory, encouraged by the strong sales of the previous season RML DVD’s has decided to do an “All Complete Seasons Set” of Rocko’s Modern Life, set to be released on February 26th, 2013, complete with the bonus video of this years Rocko Live event. With large retailers on board, this set will also include this full color art piece ( Pencil rough shown here) included in the packaging.

I challenge you to name all of the characters. Extra credit if you name the episode(s) they came from.

For those of you who already bought the first three seasons and just want the fourth, have no fear. I’ve already done the art for that one, and it will be out after the complete season DVD release.

    I can’t really name all of the characters, but I can attempt to name most of the main ones.

    I see Rocko, Heffer, Filburt, Spunky, Mr. and Mrs. Bighead, Really Really Big Man, Ralph Bighead, Chuck, Leon, Gladys, Earl, Rocko’s tooth, Grandpa Wolf, the Fatheads, the Suck-o-Matic, Dr. Hutchison, and Captain Compost Heap (♪R-E-C-Y-C-L-E Recycle!!!♪). I thew some minor ones in there.

    Even though I watch the entire series on Netflix, I’m still gonna get the complete seasons set when it comes out. Excellent rough drawing, Mr. Murray! Can’t wait for the release.

    Congrats. I bet that it comes out just in time for your new son.

    I knew that the big announcement was going to be one of two things. Either it was going to be this or, new Rocko episodes. The latter however, seemed VERY unlikely. So I would have put my money on this.

    And there’s no way I can name all the characters. The picture simply isn’t big enough, and I don’t wanna hurt my eyes. I already have poor vision.

    Also on a side note, I was very disappointed that Rocko was not included in the Nicktoons collection of Jazwares toys. I would have loved to have a little Rocko beanie plush sitting next to my computer.

    Alright, here goes…Going left-right, top-bottom.
    Rhino tourist from “I have no son,” Spunky, Heffer, Rocko, Filbert, the constipated cloud from the Christmas episode, Ralph Bighead, Ed Bighead, Bev Bighead, The Supreme Weenie?, Rocko’s giant mutated tooth from “Rinse and Spit,” Crappy Jack, Paula Hutchinson, The “Widow” Hutchinson, Peter, Cindy, Dad (Don’t remember if he had a first name), Virginia Wolfe, Dr. Phil, Captain Compost Heap, The pet psychiatrist from “Clean Lovin’,” Really Really Big Man, Gladys the hippo lady, Fruitcake Man and the Christmas elves, Earl, Crazy busdriver from “I see London, I see France,” Crazy Aunt Gretchen?, Peaches, Slippy the slug?, The Suck-o-Matic, Mr. and Mrs. Fathead, Gordon the foot, The Hopping…something…from “Sugar Frosted Frights,” Dr. Bendova, Chuck and Leon Chameleon, Mr. Smitty, Frank from “The Big Answer,” The cat and elephant driving instructors, the Wild Pig. Whew. Did I miss anyone? I feel like some of these minor characters might have had names I forgot about.

    • Joe Murray says:

      Pretty good Dan. Yeah, you missed a couple, but it may be from the quality of the rough. I think you need to name the elves. The one on the car is pretty important. But you get points for this!

  4. Andy says:

    All I know is the most important elf of all was Mitch–he was the last elf who could make it snow. Not even Mango could…

  5. Michael J says:

    To Brody, I emailed Jazwares about 2 months ago they said Rocko stuff is coming spring 2013! To Joe Murray, I know shout factory could not get the unedited episodes from Nick/Paramount but Im going to ask this anyway, will the complete series set be unedited?

  6. Ivan Jones says:

    This is such amazing news! Out on my birthday too. I’ll be placing an order for this one!

  7. Jared Martin says:

    This is so awesome except for the fact that I already have the first 3 seasons. Oh well, I will definitely double dip for this. I’ve been waiting for this day to come since I started a petition to get Rocko on DVD over 12 years ago (http://www.petitiononline.com/RSRonDVD/petition.html). Mr. Murray, any chance of Rocko coming to bluray and/or iTunes in complete seasons? Is there anyway we can convince you to start a Kickstarter campaign to relaunch Rocko? One more question, can I send you my complete series for an autograph?

  8. James B says:

    Will Season 4 have any/either of the bonus features that’ll appear in the Complete Series set? I have the first 3, so I don’t have much a need to buy the complete series. Great news, though, Joe! I know you’re definitely thrilled about this, and get to hold onto the thought that you ran your own animated series, and everybody loves it! You made this the best darn show it could possibly be!

  11. James T. says:

    Ey, where’s Flecko? I mean, HE oughta appear alongside Bloaty and Squirmy in the final project. But, I’ll settle for the Fourth Season set, since I already have the first three. Although, sometimes, when I see “I See London, I see France/The Fatlands” On Netflix, it’s really “Fish n Chumps/Camera Shy,” Also, it was vice versa. How much would it cost Nick to fix that on Netflix?

  13. Kevin Martinez says:

    Joe,

    I’m just a little bit confused. Are the first 200 people to order the set through Shout the only ones who will get this art piece, or the only ones who will get it signed?

    Shout’s site seems to be implying the latter.

  14. Kevin Martinez says:

    I’m sorry, I mean Shout seem to be implying the former in their press release, but you’re suggesting the latter.

  15. Matthew Poulin says:

    I was wondering when the 4th season of Rocko’s Modern Life will be released on dvd by itself and how much it will cost plus if it will include the Rocko Live Event like the complete series set does
