Movie Info

After being in space for around 20 years, Rocko and his friends attempt to conform to an even more modern life in O-Town, where coffee shops are on every corner, food trucks offer multi-layered tacos, touch-screen O-Phones are being upgraded on a near-constant basis, an instant-print kiosk has replaced Rocko's old job at Kind-of-a-Lot-O-Comics, and radioactive energy drinks turn their consumers into mutants.

  • May be one of Netflix's weirdest decisions yet.

  • Static Cling pokes delightful fun at itself and its existence, utilizing the "rebooting old property" concept to make some solid, if easy, jabs at the soulless, corporate nature behind most reboots.

  • The creators saw an opportunity to do something with bringing Rocko back and while it's a minuscule offering, it still ends up satisfying. As good as it is to look back on the past, there's better things to see through change.

  • It's remarkable how all the moving parts of Static Cling coalesce in one perfectly paced, thematically coherent special that's still consistent with the old show's appeal.
