Joe Murray created Rocko’s Modern Life in 1993, making it Nickelodeon’s first in-house animated program. This 5-cel setup features Rocco and Heffer on Rocco’s uncle’s ranch when Heffer begs Rocco to brand him so he can be like the other cattle. This episode was the infamous censored episode in which Rocco’s friend Heffer was “milked.”
