Sorry to be THAT GUY, but the Rocko thing, it's a TV movie, not a reboot. It's sorta like a reunion special, it's a one-time thing and they're done. Same with Hey Arnold and Invader Zim, Nick's giving the creators a shot to finish their stories, and honestly it's better than a reboot.
Okay first of all, dontcha worry sweetheart this is nice to know.
Secondly, yeah it’s better than a reboot but this is nickelodeon we are talking about… I hate to be this sort of joyless in this topic but let’s all admit that they are doing this because re-packiging childhood its cheaper that creating new things.
Nickelodeon nowadays is a disaster and it’s terribly administrated, they saw it worked for CN and they are joining the trainwaggon, to the point where they got Jhonen back… the guy they had such a huge amount with inconveniences with.
I am glad Invader Zim is getting a movie, since the show had a short run and Jhonen admitted more than once ton of stories where incomplete, same with Hey Arnold! since i think we all know the movie incident…
But Rocko? Yeah it was for many the creator’s biggest and best cartoon (I like Camp Lazlo more personally but yeah Rocko was great too), but it had 4 seasons and not that much to tell beside social commentary and jokes.
Yeah, it was sort of revolutionary on their time, a kids cartoon with social commentary, such red humor, and that style? but nowadays with the internet all the social commentary they saw on the trailer its something we’ve seen a lot, the style is the same (which tbh thanks the goddess) but again we have the original for that, and pop culture n’ social commentary in cartoons is super common, EVEN red humor have become more common, I don’t know if Rocko can resist the fact that it’s not the only one in their category.
I hope the humor is more based on timeless problems than in pop culture references like the trailer shown, if not.. theres a huge possibility it’s going to bomb, and bomb hard.
