The nostalgia business is booming right now. Disney is airing all of their old movies, MTV is showing all of their classics and now Nickelodeon is getting in on the game by turning one of our favorite NickToons into a movie.

EW is reporting that Rocko’s Modern Life is coming back for a one-hour special with all of our favorite characters, including Rocko, his dog Spunky and his assorted friends: Heffer, a dim-witted cow; Filburt, a neurotic turtle; and toads Bev and Ed Bighead and their son Ralph.

According to EW:

The timing of this announcement is particularly special – Aug. 11 marks the exact 25th anniversary of the Nicktoons brand, which launched in 1991 with Doug, Rugrats, and The Ren & Stimpy Show. Rocko was the next official Nicktoon to join the successful line-up in 1993.

The Rocko reboot is the latest in a series of them for Nick; a live action movie based on the gameshow Legends of the Hidden Temple comes out this fall and Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie is due in 2017.

Personally, I’d love to see a reboot of Ren and Stimpy, but beggars can’t be choosers I suppose.

There really did used to be 2NOTBrokeGirls, but since one of them spent all of her money on shoes and vodka, there's now just one (financially stable) J, who is too lazy to change her user name. J spends her free time saving the world, one sorority girl at a time (usually while wearing yoga pants), questioning why she decided to go to graduate school, and documenting her love of all things cheese related. You can ask her anything you want about football, using your boobs to get what you want, and pizza at @2NOTBrokeGirls on Twitter or
