The character designs in Rocko's
Modern Life start with fairly simple comic-book type artwork.
What sets them apart is the level of thought and skill put into the way
the characters move around, react to each other, and express emotions -
in short, how they ACT. Try watching RML sometime with the sound
off and pay attention to the body language, the subtle eye movements and
changes in expression, then try the same thing with some pathetic Hanna-Barbera
cartoon and you'll see what I mean. Since I don't have the space
here (and you probably don't have the time) for a load of MPEG animation,
I'll just focus on facial expressions.
