Netflix's 'Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling' features a trans storyline through the character of Rachel Bighead, the child of Mr. and Mrs. Bighead, was known as Ralph in the ’90s cartoon. Nickelodeon consulted with GLAAD for the film.
Nick Adams, GLAAD’s director of transgender representation said “Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling tells a beautiful — and hilarious — story about accepting change. The younger characters accept Rachel immediately; recognizing she’s still their friend. And while Rachel’s father is slow to accept change within his own family, even he realizes that loving your child should be unconditional. This story of inclusion and acceptance is so needed in our current climate.”
