Brace Yourself ‘Cause Rocko’s Modern Life and Invader Zim Are Coming to Netflix

2 min read

It's about to get nostalgic up in here.

Today, we find ourselves asking one simple question, “Can Netflix, do no wrong?”

And it’s all because of one little announcement.

You see, the online streaming service is bringing some old school 'toons back to life, reviving two of Nickelodeon's beloved cult classics.

In a blog post on NickALive!, it was revealed that Netflix has bought the rights to Nickelodeon's upcoming TV movies Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling and Invader Zim: Enter The Florpus

Remember the wallaby Rocko, and his two loose friends, Filburt and Heffer?

Or what about Invader Zim and his evil schemes?

Us ‘90s kids, we out here feeling oldddddd.

For those who have forgotten these childhood icons, you're about to receive an education.

Rocko's Modern Life aired from 1993 to 1996, and followed  Australian wallaby, Rocko, and the aforementioned loose mates, Heffer and Filburt, through a series of wacky adventures.

The new Rocko movie Static Cling will see the squad return to Earth after being lost in outer space and live large in the 21st century.

Yes, that’s a jump and a half, for those of you whose last memory of this show is being scared by the toad neighbours.

Anyway, apparently, Rocko isn't a fan of all the tech and wants to go back to the ‘90s.

Same, Rocko. Same.

Conversely, Invader Zim only ran for one-and-a-half seasons in the early 2000’s.

The series focused on an alien from planet Irk, who, with the help of his sidekick robot GIR, attempts to fit in on the hope of eventually conquering it. 

In Enter the Florpus, Zim learns his fellow Irkans won't be coming to Earth to help with his plans, which we can assume will be soul-crushing for our boy Zim. 

A lot of the OG cast members from both shows are rumored to return, and while there is no release date yet WE ARE READY.
