** Joe Murray is actually a [[http://www.joemurraystudio.com/issues/change.shtml self-proclaimed environemtnalist]], meaning he knew exactly what he wanted to say about the issue. In fact, the only reason the episode is a musical was to present an otherwise sincere moral in a way that was still entertaining.

* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: The pilot in "Jet Scream". He delivers news about severe plane damage in a very calm manner:
--> '''Pilot''': No need to worry, we just lost power to our right engine. ''(the plane flies between two mountains and loses both of its wings)'' Oops.

* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: Dr. Hutchinson. She started off as a dentist in "Rinse and Spit" (until she got tired of always looking down in the mouth), then a surgeon in "Tickled Pinky" and "Nothing to Sneeze At" (until she just couldn't cut it), then a pharmacist in "Kiss Me, I'm Foreign," and then finally a canine nutrition specialist in "The Fatlands." It's likely her not being so frequent is because she's either going to school to get said new careers or working long hours without a break.
** Filburt also seems to change his job as well. He was working as a cashier in a grocery store, aspired to be a dentist, worked at Rocko's comic book store as an assistant, selling samples at the grocery store (where he met Heffer), the DMV, a fast food restaurant, and an amateur photographer. His aren't as called out on because he changes easily obtainable and replaceable part-time jobs and his wife changes ''careers''.

** For context, Rocko had just been thrown off a wild Merry-Go-Round and was already dizzy. Heffer offered him a bite of his hot dog and after taking a huge sniff, Rocko barfed all over the camera.

One of {{Nickelodeon}}'s most famous Franchise/{{Nicktoons}}, and the 4th overall, created by illustrator and cartoonist Joe Murray. It stars Rocko, a young wallaby from Australia, adjusting to life on his own in America. Most of his days were "very dangerous days" where ASimplePlan like a trip to the laundromat or just trying to keep his job was met with bad luck and other weirdness. In later episodes Rocko's friends Heffer -- a gluttonous, not-too-bright, but amiable bovine who was literally RaisedByWolves -- and Filburt -- a geeky, neurosis-riddled turtle -- were often dragged along for the ride.

Added DiffLines:

** "Mama's Boy" has a RunningGag of Heffer's mom calling him out of worry and Heffer telling her he's just fine on his own while he's obviously in a horrible situation. The gag eventually escalates to Heffer telling his mother everything is fine even though he's in jail, about to be executed, and in Hell.

* MeaningfulName: "Dr." Bendova.Bendova apparently practices proctology.



* NatureTinkling: Comes up in "Hut Sut Raw" when Filburt informs Rocko that he needs to use the bathroom and Rocko responds by pointing towards a bush. Filburt is so disgusted by the idea of peeing behind a bush that he chooses to hold it instead.

* VomitIndiscretionShot: Played straight in an early episode "Carnival Knowledge," which [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar got a LOT of crap past the radar anyways]]. The puke is drawn rather cartoonishly, however (green with huge un-chewed food chunks visible), however. The vomiting acted as a transition into the next scene.

to:

* VoicemailConfusion: In "Seat to Stardom," Heffer attempts to call Rocko but gets his answering machine. Its' greeting involves Rocko asking "Hello?" as if he really were answering the phone, then pauses, and then says "This is Rocko. Sorry I can't come to the phone right now," and explains to leave a message and he will get back to him. Of course, Heffer falls for Rocko's fake-out greeting.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: Filburt doesn't age well, though that was mostly because Rocko and Heffer were out of town for a while and the stress really got to him. He's much better when they arrive.
