Role in Flim

The Pebble and the Penguin



  • He's played by James Belushi.
  • His species is a Northern Rockhopper Penguin.
  • He doesn't like fibs.
  • Rocko was rumored to be the movie's deuteragonist. This isn't true as Marina has as much plans as Hubie.
  • When Rocko "flies" at the end, this is pure on-screen fiction, as it's a world-renowned fact that penguins are among a lot of birds that can't fly.
