Reviews and Comments

From bcToonist2837 :

This is one of my favorite "Rocko's Modern Life" episodes. I wonder if Ralph Bighead's foray into wanting to be a cartoonist is autobiographical.The art direction (similar to pen-and-ink children's book illustrations with photographs thrown in) in "The Fatheads", a show within a show, is bizarre as it does not match the art style of Rocko. One thing they have in common is they make as much of sense.The tour Rocko and Filburt are forced through provide much laughs (especially the animators behind glass, the Chameleon Brothers filming the rough animation, and Filburt shopping for souvenirs). This episode does provide humor throughout the entire cartoon, though at the same time, you can relate to Ralph's relationship with his dad who seems to be the opposite of him.
