This week your retro injection gets a heavy dose of Nickelodeon. If you grew up in the 1990s, you no doubt spent a lot of time watching Nickelodeon. Whether you enjoyed the quality cartoons, including Hey Arnold!, Doug and Rugrats, the engrossing sports competition shows, or the unforgettable SNICK programs, life wouldn’t have been the same without the big N.
Netflix has a good selection of Nick programming, but I knew right away my pick for this week’s episode: Rocko’s Modern Life. Yes, Rocko’s Modern Life, the cartoon about the everyday life of a mild-mannered wallaby, his dog Spunky, and his friends Heffer and Filburt, with occasional outbursts from Rocko’s rude and abrasive neighbors, the Bigheads.
The humor is often crude, but that’s part of the charm of the show. Along with Ren & Stimpy, Rocko’s Modern Life was definitely one of the more adult-oriented of the Nick animated shows. But, per usual, kids can completely miss the innuendo and still enjoy the show.
