The Modern Life by metalandy The Modern Life by metalandy
Rocko's Modern Life, one of my fave cartoons of the 90s, used to sit glued to it as a kid and i still love how warped and generally weird it is.
Been wanting to do something Rocko for a while so yeah here it is...

yeah, it was goood back then, although i was more into the cartoon network stuff in the late 90s, dexter, cow and chicken, etc...
kids shows have just changed with the times i think, that said i still find myself watching spongebob or fairly odd parents from time to time =p

Well, I guess. Unless you mean all the warpedness about how it explained real life. :p

Cartoons should be explaining real life. Not all this crap to cover it up 'cause of how, "THIS WILL SCARE THE CHIIILLDREENN!!!!!"
I hate soccermoms. And religious extremists.
