Top 10 Reasons Rocko's Modern Life is by Far the Best Nicktoon

xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 It was basically all three of the original Nicktoons fused together, with all of the best elements of each

I never realized that. The gross out and shock humor of Ren and Stimpy, The crazy storylines and sexual innuendo's of Rugrats, And the main character that everyone loves of Doug. And it even inspired future Nicktoons like CatDog and The Angry Beavers.

So true! Mostly, the characters reminded me of SpongeBob and Rugrats.

2 It took the already memorable formula of Ren & Stimpy and basically perfected it in a way that no other cartoon has ever quite replicated since
3 It didn't annoyingly overstay its welcome like most of the other Nicktoons from the 90s did
4 The show's intro alone is literally better than about half of its episodes, which in this show's case is saying quite a lot
5 It is a world-class satire the likes of which should have been on an actually good channel like Comedy Central or Adult Swim
6 The entire show is just a nonstop joyride of hilariously ridiculous scenes with well-written context to match

This show should make a movie! Big time!

This my most favorite Nicktoon of all time!

7 So much adult humor that it would actually make the writers of Animaniacs blush at times
8 The voice actors somehow manage to completely overact their parts yet also nail them in just about every way possible

Carlos Alazraqui, Tom Kenny, Charlie Adler, Mr. Lawrence, and Linda Wallem certainly show their great talent of voice acting in this show.

9 It screams 1990s almost as loudly as Rocket Power did, only without being cringeworthy

Yeah, people should be nostalgic for Rocko, not Rocket Power!

10 The entire cast of characters is just such a joy to experience

Just like Animaniacs, this show has got the best cast of both funny and memorable characters!

Rocko, Spunky, Heffer, Filbert, the Bigheads, the Chameleon Brothers, Dr. Hutchinson, Earl, the Hippo Lady, Really Really Big Man, the Wolfe Family, Ralph Bighead, Peaches, the Fatheads, the Crazy Bus Driver, Betty Balogna, Sal Ami, Mr. Cheese, the Wild Pig, etc. I could go on forever!

The Contenders

11 Invader Zim didn't have THE CHEESE

Although I like Invader Zim, Rocko was the best! Hands down!

In comparison to Rocko, Invader Zim is lame.

12 Rocko is hands-down the cutest Nickelodeon character ever

YES! ALONG WITH GIR BUT I GO 4 ROCKO!

13 It managed to be just controversial enough to where it was incredibly messed-up on the inside, yet no longer obnoxiously tryhard and pretentious like Ren & Stimpy
14 Most of the other Nicktoons sucked
15 Much like Ren & Stimpy, it had an animation style that pretty much literally could only have existed in the drug ages and was more than a little proud of it
16 Spunky is easily the cutest dog ever
17 Filburt is probably the funniest nerd character in any cartoon ever
18 Wacky Delly and The Fatheads

I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants a spin-off of these two shows.

19 It was somehow even crazier than Ren & Stimpy, yet also vastly smarter at the same time
20 The dialogue is just a goldmine of quotes the likes of which would never be seen again until Spongebob Squarepants
