When they arrive at his old house, they discover that it has been replaced by a high-tech building.

He discovers that his favorite TV show, "The Fatheads," has been canceled, and he decides to launch a protest to bring it back. With the help of his friends, and a few new ones, Rocko works to get the show back on the air.
Along the way, Rocko meets a new character named Rachel, who is a frog who has just moved to O-Town. She is an aspiring cartoonist, and she offers to help design a new logo for "The Fatheads" protest. Rocko is initially hesitant to work with her, but he soon realizes how talented she is and how much they have in common.
Meanwhile, Filburt struggles with his new life as a father and husband, and Heffer becomes obsessed with a new social media app. As Rocko's protest gains momentum, he must overcome various obstacles, including a lawsuit from Conglom-O, the massive corporation that now dominates O-Town.
The film has a nostalgic feel, with plenty of Easter eggs and references to the original series. Fans of the show will appreciate seeing their favorite characters again, and newcomers to the series will still be able to enjoy the film's humor and heart.
