The online streaming platform Netflix launched a 45-minute special Friday that serves as a follow-up to the popular 1990s children’s cartoon series “Rocko’s Modern Life” that features a prominent transgender storyline. 

The series, which lasted four seasons on the children’s cable network Nickelodeon and ended in 1996, was known back then to test the limits of adult humor in children’s programming. 

The new Netflix special, “Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling,” presented by Nickelodeon, starts off with Rocko (a wallaby), his friends Filburt (a turtle) and a Heffer (a cow voiced by the same man who voices SpongeBob Squarepants) being stranded in space for 20 years.

The group of friends lands back home two decades after they were rocketed off.  
Upon return, the characters want to try out everything the future has to offer them, including getting the newest cell phones, getting food from food trucks, and watching 3D movies. 

“The 21st century is a very dangerous century,” Rocko says in the show.

The plot thickens when Rocko realizes that his favorite cartoon TV show from the past, “The Fatheads,” was canceled years ago. 

But Rocko remembered that the creator of the show was Ralph Bighead, the son of his next-door neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Bighead. 

When Rocko asks the Bigheads about their son, the program cuts to a flashback scene where Ralph Bighead tells his mother and father that he needs to go away for a while because he is “just not happy.” 

“I need to get away for a while to do some real soul searching. Find the real me,” Ralph is shown as saying. 

Mrs. Bighead told Rocko that Ralph left the home years ago to find himself and never returned.
