"Bedfellows" is the 4th episode of Rocko's Modern Life. It premiered on Nickelodeon on September 19, 1993.


Heffer's dad, George gets laid off and to make ends meet, Heffer's room is rent out to a mouse family. After falling out of his treehouse, Heffer moves in with Rocko and makes a mess of his place.

Bad Qualities

  1. This is a torture episode for Rocko, as Heffer gets kicked out of his house and so stays with Rocko until he can find a nice place to stay, and Heffer is not the best roommate as he messes up Rocko’s home and gives Rocko a hard time.
  2. Heffer’s family and the nudists are unlikable, Heffer’s family rented his room to rats and kicked Heffer out of the house, which was very mean spirited, and the nudists were partying and messing up Rocko’s place.
  3. Many gross things in this episode, mainly when Heffer messes up many of Rocko’s things and makes them gross, and when Heffer, the nudists and Rocko were naked (Rocko’s was the least disturbing).
  4. While Rocko tried his best to make sure Heffer doesn’t mess up, it keeps on getting worst, to the point that it was starting to get on Rocko’s nerves.
  5. Mrs. Bighead wasn’t any better either, as she spied on the nudists that were partying at Rocko’s house, and she let them Party at her place at the end of the episode. Cheating wife?

Good Qualities

  1. Some of the other characters, Rocko, Spunky, Mr. Bighead and especially Heffer are still likable, and Heffer was just having a hard time after getting kicked out of his home, so we sympathize with him.
  2. Some funny moments in the episode, like Rocko’s couch running away and Heffer’s weight breaking his treehouse.
  3. Rocko was at least still nice enough to let Heffer stay at his place.
  4. The ending was mostly good, as Heffer’s family took him back home, so Rocko and Spunky have their house back again.


This episode was number 67 on the 100 Greatest Moments in Nicktoons History.
