    I'm really looking forward to this, it's getting massive praise from the critics and the fans to quite an outstanding level already. They've really nailed it with this and are quite an example to how these should be done!!

    Should be released any time now, my guess is early towards mid next year

    that's interesting, the first major animated project to be animated by hand since edd ed n eddy nearly 15 years ago.

    Looks great, altho if they've been in space since 1996, that kinda negates the ending of Camp Lazlo.

    Yeah, I think it's fair to say that Rocko is one of the most underrated shows out there, it's pretty much up there with The Simpsons and I don't say that easily. I just think the show never really had the exposure The Simpsons did but if you look back on it again, you can see the quality of the show with it's wit and humour etc.. it's kind of in the same way The Simpsons do it, they're very clever.

    I think it's quite hard to do that really to create a show where it's technically seen as family viewing but is pretty much more adult than anything, without being obvious to those who won't get it. It's great and the show should be good

    I guess they required the slot for Kid Danger reruns, which is plain absurd, particularly in that the EML special sounded as if it at least contained some semblance of actual effort.

    Ah, then you are a fan. A lot of "fans" started watching after 2001, when Nickelodeon pulled that episode, along with a couple of AAAHH!!! Real Monsters and four CatDog episodes, from airing after 9/11, presumably because somebody thought they had scenes that might trigger bad memories of some sort. (The CatDog episodes were put back in late 2003, but I don't think Jet Scream/Dirty Dog ever aired again - when Nicktoons used to air Rocko in 3-hour blocks every weeknight (before giving the early morning hours over to infomercials), the episode was the only one missing.)

    I watched the special as soon as it came out and thought it was a great way to revive the show.

    The humour's still intact, the plot was very good and there's an important lesson about change at the end.

    And, is no one on this thread gonna mention that the special had a transgender sub-plot?

    I'm not really complaining though, I thought this is something worth mentioning.

    Loved the special. You can just tell when watching something whether or not the creators behind it cared, and it really shone through with this. Great piece of animation on its own, but at the same time stayed very true to the tone, themes, characters, and humour of the original 90s cartoon, while at the same time managing to bring it into, almost seemlessly, into the current era. There were a few nit-picks I didn't like, but then they were the same nit-picks I disliked in the original show (nothing can be perfect). I genuinely hope this gains popularity, because I would love to see an official revival, hopefully on Netflix, which would give them more liberties in tackling other modern issues. (I think they can probably do a better job than modern Simpsons tbh)

    I normally don't like when shows pull stunts like this..... but this might just have been the best handling of a trans character I've seen in... ANYTHING. Luckily it hadn't been spoiled for me before I watched the special so I was surprised (not so much surprised the character transitioned but that the show (still a kid's show) actual did that). It would've been so easy for this to come across as "pandering", but it was just the perfect amount of subtlety, the perfect amount of thoughtfulness, no cringy dialogue, no shoving anything in anyone's face, just presenting a real-life aspect of modern society, at face-value, in a honest, realistic way. I'm talking about a cartoon, and this portrayal of a trans character felt more believable than anything I've seen in live-action. The best part was how Rocko and co. reacted like it was no big deal. They didn't harp on about how "stunning and brave" Rachel was, they were just supportive and basically went "oh... cool." This can be used as a great example to other shows on how to do a queer character/storyline right.

    I have seen a few people bitching. "They made RML woke and therefore ruined it!" RML always explored modern issues in a ridiculous cartoony setting. It's in the title. Dump it in 2019, and ofc it's going to take on something like this. I dislike shoehorning X-character into a show just to make your show look progressive as much as the next guy, but I can't understand people that want to pretend that X-character doesn't exist and doesn't want to see them in their shows, regardless of whether they're a decent character, like Rachel. Transpeople exist. They should be represented in various kinds of media. This is how you do it.

    (Although on a sort-of sidenote: I'd be interested to see if Simpsons season 31 could handle an episode such as "Homer's Transphobia".)

    Well, I watched it but I hate reviewing so I'll just say I liked it. The animation, music, and voices were good. Some of the jokes were weak/too obvious but I largely enjoyed the humor and feel like it didn't lose too much in all that time off-air. The worst thing about it was probably just the pacing of how fast everything happens and gets almost immediately resolved but those are time restraints I am sure. Loved the Rachel stuff. Tired of hearing whining whiners bitch about SJW this that. Incredibly ready for more Rocko.
