We're returning once again to the world of Nicktoons with the first creation to follow the original three series, Rocko's Modern Life! Two years after launching Doug, Rugrats, and The Ren & Stimpy Show, cable network Nickelodeon realized adults made up a sizable chunk of their audience, and Joe Murray's edgy-yet-silly creation took full advantage of this fact with its tales of 20-somethings making it in the wild world of the go-go 90s. This week, cartoon expert Matthew Jay joins us to discuss "Wacky Delly," a superb episode of Rocko's Modern Life that digs deep into the hell of making animation, and one that reflects upon some of Murray's own personal struggles as a cartoon creator.
