Rocko Diggs Digg

Carlos Alazraqui, the man behind the voice of Rocko (Rocko’s Modern Life) and the face behind the moustache of Reno 911!’s Deputy James Oswaldo Garcia, diggs Digg. During recent appearance at Cobbs Comedy Club in San Francisco (December 12 & 13, 2008), Carlos was wearing green Digg t-shirt.

In November 2008, an article titled “The Faces Behind TV’s Cartoon Voices” made Digg front page. Comments like this one and this one show how popular Rocko was. Add Reno 911!’s James Garcia, Family Guy’s Mr Weed, and the Taco Bell Chihuahua to Carlos Alazraqui’s resume, he is a legend.

Rocko is giving the love back to Digg!
