Rocko's Modern Life Season One is another classic Nickelodeon show hitting DVD for the first time, thanks to that agreement between Shout! Factory and Paramount Home Entertainment/Nickelodeon. Rocko's Modern Life first hit the network back in 1993, and it's the story of Rocko, an Australian Wallaby and his friends Heffer (a fat and enthusiastic cow), and, Filburt (an easily upset turtle who often feels uncomfortable or disturbed). Toss in an angry neighbor named Ed Bighead and your average weird area named O-Town, and you'll see Rocko try to deal with all the absurdities he deals with in day to day life. (Hello, Murphy's Law here too! lol)
Rocko's Modern Life Season One contains all 26 "stories" on 13 episodes from the first season. The age range is more for the 6 to 10 crowd, and can appeal to both boys and girls (oh, and husbands too - my DH is seriously enjoying re-living his younger years with the TV shows he used to watch, lol) Unfortunately, you'll find no special features on this two disc set, but maybe on future season releases? We'll have to wait and see. Here's a clip from the show:

I received a copy of this DVD in order to view it and share my thoughts on it. All opinions are my own.
