Caught With Their Pants Down

"Rocko's Modern Life" was very close in spirit to classic pre-1970's cartoons, but had the edginess of its 1990's time period. In the 1993 episode "Bedfellows", Rocko's pal Heffer, a steer raised by wolves, goes to live with him after a fight with his adoptive family. Mr. Wolf reconsiders and goes to apologize to Heffer...and when he enters Rocko's house, this is the scene he is greeted with. This was a kid's show. Right?

  1. Heffer didn't fight with his family; his family sold his room to vermin to make extra money because George (Heffer's adoptive father) got laid off from his job and needed to sell something. Heffer did try to live in the treehouse outside, but he was so fat that he got wedged in it and fell.
