    This is Viacom we're talking about, there are going to be simulcasts all over the place, they are not wasting all that money to air it exclusively on TeenNick, they need some hype, and The Splat numbers won't look good on press releases

    Glad they are giving insight on voicing that is one of those facts that make this more official.

    Having some exclusive premieres for the Splat might be a good thing in a way. It would help to bring in more attention to the block and possibly lead to more specials being produced if they do well there. Although, I imagine that the movie will still air on Nick proper eventually anyway just to give it more ratings given that not a lot of houses have Teen Nick.

    I like how they're painting the backgrounds traditionally instead of digitally. Looking forward to seeing how it comes out!

    The date has not been announced yet. This is mentioned in 2017 upfront, so it's too soon to say when it will air

    I like Rocko's color scheme in the poster looks newer and fresh.

    Well we are getting Hey Arnold's Jungle movie this year so I'm fine with Nickelodeon spacing out these revival specials so long as they do them right. I admit I didn't think they were actually going to have this special actually tie into the ending of "Future Schlock" (which yeah did end with Heffer, Rocko, Filburt and Spunky along with Filburt's four kids going into outer space... though that was already 17 years into RML's regular history so wonder how this one will go) but RML actually was one of the first comedy cartoons to actually have some form of an actual continuity that wasn't just adding in new characters and this following up on it to explain Rocko not getting modern technology sounds interesting especially as yeah the crux of the original series was Rocko having a hard time dealing with the day technology so makes sense to see how he'd handle stuff now. I do hope that since they are bringing back the full cast there's plenty of interaction since IMHO that's what made RML so good and that was something they really started doing more in seasons 2-4 so hope we aren't doing this to bring back Rocko how it was more in season which IMHO is the weakest season.
