It’s been a few decades, but Rocko’s Modern Life is coming back to where it all began at Nickelodeon — and here’s the first footage from his new TV movie.

The network has dropped the first trailer for Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling, which will find Rocko, Heffer, and Filburt living in the modern day. Turns out O-Town isn’t quite as chill and wholesome as it once was, as drones zip around the sky and coffee shops have taken up residence in the skyline. It plays on a lot of iPhone and energy drink gags, and kind of has that Futurama revival vibe, for better and worse.

Judging by the footage here, it looks like Rocko will have a bit more trouble than the rest of his gang adjusting to 2017. If nothing else, it’s just great to see these characters back in action. Please be good. Oh, please be good.

The TV movie is set to air at some point in 2018.
