Physical AppearanceEdit


Rocko is a funny and sarcastic Rockhopper Penguin who does not like lies.

Role in FilmEdit

He is Hubie's best friend, and a rockhopper penguin.



  • He's voiced 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.
