Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Rocket Power was a popular Nicktoon that ran from 1999 to 2004, produced by Klasky-Csupo (the studio and creators of Rugrats, The Wild Thornberrys and As Told by Ginger (of which Rocket Power resembles most)). It focused on the (mis)adventures of a foursome of kids living in Ocean Shores, CA. The title refers to brother and sister duo Otto and Reggie Rocket, ostensibly the leads out of the core cast of four. The other two included Otto's friend Maurice "Twister" Rodriguez, and new kid Sam "Squid" Dullard.The show's hook was that the four main characters were all into extreme sports, and nearly every episode featured some such activity at the center of the episode's events. Even if it wasn't the core of the plot, each episode would generally begin with the kids surfing, or hanging out at the local skate park, Madtown. Over the course of the series, everything from relatively tame sports such as roller hockey to extreme and obscure sports like zorb balling were featured in the show.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Other than the main four, other regular characters included Otto and Reggie's dad, Ray, who owned a restaurant on the Ocean Shores pier; his partner Tito, a native Hawaiian who spoke with the requisite accent and was fond of spouting nonsensical proverbs, and Twister's older brother, Lars, who was often seen picking on the main characters. Also included were the Rockets' next-door neighbors, the Stimpletons; Madtown's owner, cool Jamaican dude Conroy; and various other kids the same age as the main characters.

Daydream Surprise
 Rocket Power / int_118a41d5
comment
Daydream Surprise: In "Twister's Cuz," Sam is nervous about the new "Sky Torpedo" thrill ride at the Ocean Shores amusement park. A while after the characters arrive at the park, Sam is shown hesitating to get in a mini-rocket vehicle, but Otto and Reggie keep pushing him to do it, and the demented ride operator locks him into the car, laughs at him, and starts the ride. Sam buckles up, and then the ride elevates the carousel far over the ocean and begins spinning the vehicles faster and faster. It then tilts to the side as it goes even faster, and then the screw nut holding Sam's vehicle in place pops out and sends his vehicle flying, to which it leaves a path of destruction as it careens through the park, flinging Sam to his impending doom. Otto then starts crying out Sam's name, only for it to ripple back to reality as Otto snaps Sam out of his fantasy.

Instant Expert: Sam fits in right away as a practical "stonewall" goalie for The Rocket gang, but it's totally subverted when it comes to surfing, skateboarding and many other extreme sports, as it either takes Sam finding the right equipment or simply Level Grinding over three seasons to the point where he can at least keep up with the others. Justified in that he originally lived in Kansas, where there's no ocean for surfing and it's too flat for any good skateboarding.

Poor Communication Kills: A non-violent example in "The Big Day" where Noelani and Raymundo's wedding is nearly derailed after Noelani mistakenly thinks Otto and Reggie don't want her to be their new step-mom after overhearing the siblings' heated conversation at the rehearsal party. In actuality, Otto was merely parroting Reggie's earlier words about her hesitance in accepting Noelani as their new mom and (after Noelani walks away) Reggie admits she was nervous about it, but really likes Noelani and is more than willing to accept her as a Rocket.

Big Shadow, Little Creature: Seen in "The Night Before," when Otto, Sam, Twister and Eddie are about to "whomp" a house on Mischief Night, the owner of the house can be heard sending out his dog "Crusher" to get them, and the boys see a rather threatening shadow of the dog in the light from the open door, and run for it. Once they climb up a tree, the dog catches up, and we see it's actually something like a chihuahua.

Funny Background Event
 Rocket Power / int_26eb6287
comment
Funny Background Event: The episodes in which the story is told through interviews on camera or the media is shown. Throughout the episode of a documentary on Otto "Selling out", you can spot all sorts of weird events such as Ray emptying trash on the ground, a whale jumping out of the blader bowl, and an empty skateboard flying out. There was also another funny one where the news anchor stalled for time... and a UFO sucks up a whale and flies off. And occasionally, you can see people falling in the background. A very subtle yet funny background event happens in one episode. Ray is giving his kids a lecture and you see a fish trophy hanging on the wall behind Ray. Sometime in the middle of the scene, the fish blinks.

Small Name, Big Ego: The obnoxious pro surfer "The Rhino," aka Walter, whom Otto idolizes and Ray hates. Otto himself can be this at times, as when he enters a professional surf contest just after his 11th birthday. Not like Ray was immune to this either. In most of his flashbacks, he makes himself out to be cooler than he really was.

Inverted with Clio. In her first appearance, Clio is a straight-up Girly Girl who likes ice dancing and thinks it's improper for girls to play hockey (though later she tries hockey after betting with Reggie). Later episodes reveal that she's also good at surfing, skateboarding, rollerskating, and playing roller hockey. Justified in that Clio trying ice hockey would have made her more open to playing more male-dominated sports.

Adult Fear
 Rocket Power / int_46118dc5
comment
Adult Fear: Often occurs with Raymundo Rocket and sometimes with Paula Dullard. While this can be especially annoying and/or frightening to Otto and Sam respectively, It's not without justification. In Sam's case, Imagine your kid being so wide-eyed that he could potentially go on extremely dangerous waters & get eaten by a monster wave. As Paula herself quotes... "You could be the next Captain Ken Gallant." In Otto's case, Imagine your kid being so impulsive and competitive that he deliberately goes against executive orders to race on an "off-limits to children" slope way out of his league. Suddenly you're racing alongside paramedics rushing your crying son through the snow because he broke his leg.

Getting Crap Past the Radar: Literally. The word "crap" is used in multiple episodes. Otto makes a steroids joke to a musclebound hockey player in "Ice Queens". In "Happy Luau to You-Au" Tito tells a disgruntled Reggie that he's "cutting [her] off" when she orders more fries after finishing her last serving. He later adds "You're not driving home are you?"

Never Bareheaded
 Rocket Power / int_5400ad8
comment
Never Bareheaded: While Twister has been shown without his kango hat several times, his brother Lars is rarely seen without his trademark gray beanie, and when he's not wearing it, he has his head covered with a helmet. In "Double-O Twistervision," as part of playing the Big Bad in the gang's "Gnarlyforce 5", he wears a bald cap with false eyebrows as part of his Dr. Evil-esque costume. Lars has only been shown in literally one episode with his head exposed, which is "Bruised Man's Curve". Outside of that episode, Lars never removes his beanie. Raymundo is almost never seen without wearing some kind of hat, usually his trademark green fishing hat, or a coonskin cap when the characters are on a skiing trip. It isn't until the third season with "Twister's Hat" where we first see Raymundo's hat accidentally fall off, revealing he's balding, and we occasionally see this in a few other episodes.

Level Grinding: Aside from hockey and (mostly) surfing, it took three seasons for Sam to steadily improve to the point where he's able to keep up with the rest of the gang. Compare "Pool's Out Forever", where he couldn't even skate out of the bowl to "The Big Day", where he placed in the final five alongside Twister and Otto in the ZGZ tournament.

Chickification
 Rocket Power / int_5740acf7
comment
Chickification: Thankfully averted with Reggie for the entirety of the series except for the episode Reggie-Regina where she not only allowed a new boy in town that she liked to call her by her real first name, she also pretended to be terrible at sports so he could teach them to her in a misguided attempt to get him to like her. Thankfully this gets cleared up by the end of the episode. Inverted with Clio. In her first appearance, Clio is a straight-up Girly Girl who likes ice dancing and thinks it's improper for girls to play hockey (though later she tries hockey after betting with Reggie). Later episodes reveal that she's also good at surfing, skateboarding, rollerskating, and playing roller hockey. Justified in that Clio trying ice hockey would have made her more open to playing more male-dominated sports. An in-universe example occurs in the episode "Sim Sammy". In Sam's computer game, Reggie's counterpart, Reginalda, does not know how to skateboard, surf, or ride the ski lift. Reggie calls Sam out by telling him that she taught him to ride the ski lift.

Embarrassing First Name
 Rocket Power / int_829b958e
comment
Embarrassing First Name: Twister's first name is Maurice. The episode it's revealed in makes it a Running Gag. In one episode, The Rhino blushes in embarrassment when Raymundo calls him by his real first name, Walter. Embarrassing Middle Name: Twister laughs when he finds out Mr. Stimpleton's middle name is Jeremiah, to which Reggie reminds him of his name, Maurice.

Free-Range Children
 Rocket Power / int_84c5ec0b
comment
Free-Range Children: The late elementary school cast wanders about Ocean Shores by themselves frequently. Although Ray is pretty laid back. Sam's mother is more fussy, but generally, Sam always tags along. (One episode actually does show Sam's mother forbidding him to go to a secret spot because she doesn't know where he is.) However, it's implied they only seem to walk around certain parts of the town - making this somewhat more realistic, as they're pretty much always within range of the place where their parents work.

Like Father, Unlike Son: Ultimately displayed by the Mc Gilles in "Race Across New Zealand". Mr. Mc Gille has no qualms about using dirty tricks to win but his son has his conscience catch up to him and not only admits to the cheating, getting both his win and his father's previous one revoked and awarded to Reggie and Raymundo respectively, but is even a Graceful Loser who clearly sees Reggie as a Worthy Opponent.

Parental Favoritism
 Rocket Power / int_88933ad4
comment
Reggie generally gets along great with her dad and tolerates Otto's posturing fairly gracefully. However, in "Race Across New Zealand", Raymundo's favoring of Otto to the point of ignoring that she is about to beat the boy Raymundo has set up as Otto's rival in favor of cheering only Otto on during a wind-surfing race makes her deliberately cut her brother off in the water so they both lose and then when Raymundo scolds her for absolutely everything that has gone wrong up to that point instead of realizing that this is highly unusual behavior for Reggie on several levels, she chews him out and claims he doesn't care about her before running off.

comment
Anachronic Order: Early Season 1 episodes showed the gang visiting Madtown Skatepark before "Banned on the Run" which ends with Madtown's grand opening. Conroy also appeared before despite the aforementioned episode implying that was when they were first introduced to him. Sam is still seen boogieboarding in some episodes after "The Fall and Rise of Sam" where Sam quits boogieboarding and learns to surf. In "Womp Race 2000," at the end of the episode, Reggie decides Sam should have a new nickname to replace "Squid," and they all decide on "The Sam Man." But in episodes afterward, Sam is still referred to as "Squid," even by Reggie. The episodes "New Girl on the Block" and "After Shocked" featured Ray's new wife Noelani and the Zero Gravity Zone and aired before the series finale, "The Big Day", where the wedding and the ZGZ opening took place.

One standout example comes in "Pool's Out Forever", where, thanks to Otto's big mouth, Eddie's new pool is getting wrecked by an all-out "empty pool" skate party. Sam manages to get all the party-goers to leave by announcing that the Shore Shack is giving away free ice cream and french fries. It works, except...

Laser-Guided Karma: In "Snow Day", Otto successfully convinces Sam to attempt to skip school with him (their own "Snow Day" by Otto's words) while Reggie and Twister continue to attend. The former two get trapped on a roller coaster and is televised on the news, eventually getting caught by Ray, while the latter two get to attend a carnival at their assembly. In another episode, Lars tricks Twister into believing that there's a suitcase full of money buried in the backyard, and Twister digs for it, eventually getting himself in trouble with their parents. After a lot of anxiety that he's going to be sent away as punishment, he explains the whole situation to his parents. Lars gets his just desserts when he is told by the parents to dig for the nonexistent suitcase full of money, since he's the one who made the lie in the first place.

Muse Abuse: One episode had Sam programming a game that made him awesome and made his friends look like doofuses — although he was actually rather nice to Reggie; merely showing her as a girl who asked him how to do stuff. Otto, Twister, and Ray got it worst. ("You have been trapped in one of Rumando's boring sixties flashbacks! Game over!") Although they do begin to laugh at it by the end of the episode, and even Tito takes it in good measure. (Just not the bit that's making fun of him.)

The Friend Nobody Likes: Josh Grody, one-shot character from "All About Sam", temporary becomes this to the Rocket gang. He annoys the gang with his lame attempts at slang, his sucking up to Otto, and his picking on Sam, while justifying it by saying he was just messing with him. When Josh tries to replace Sam at a game and it becomes clear how little he thinks of Sam, Otto, Reggie, and Twister make it clear to Josh that the only reason they hang around him is because of Sam and unfriend him.

Adults Are Useless: Averted.

Unfortunately, the kids often learn this second part the hard way. Otto especially because of his guru nature for the trio.

Berserk Button: Reggie does not like being called Regina, nor just Twister like being called Squid (he also doesn't like being called by his given name of Maurice, but that's more of a Mildly Annoyed Button). Ray was willing to bury The Rhino's head in the sand for encouraging Otto, as well as other kids to surf during a hurricane, as the storm potentially put Otto and Twister at risk. Reggie goes ballistic when Trent suggests that she should "definitely come watch" him and the guys play rugby.

Shout-Out: There's a secret stealth-shout out to Semisonic's popular song, "Closing Time", in the episode "After Shocked". When Tito and Ray recalled this one famous surfing star as having a phobia of water, the star in the flashback had a mid 60s haircut and the film may have referenced the 50s and 60s Beach films like Gidget and other such films done by American International Pictures (like Beach Blanket Bingo and Bikini Beach) and the male stars James Darren and Frankie Avalon.

Eat the Camera / Fly-at-the-Camera Ending: "The Great Sandcastle Race" ends this way, when a seagull that's sitting on a blimp (that keeps appearing throughout the episode as a Running Gag) takes off from the blimp and flies right into the camera, its' open beak engulfing the screen with black.

Does Not Like Shoes
 Rocket Power / int_d507ecfc
comment
Does Not Like Shoes: The kids (minus Sam), and most of the population of Ocean Shores. Living in a beach town, they tend to not wear shoes unless they absolutely have to; they seldom wear them when around town, and never when on the beach. This is eventually revealed to be the source of the term "shoobies", an insulting nickname for annoying tourists: the kids can always spot these tourists because (being from colder climes, and unaccustomed to walking barefoot on hot sand) they're usually the only ones on the beach wearing shoes.

Unusual Euphemism: The main cast has an entire vocabulary of slang terms, including "shoobie" (referring to tourists who wear socks with their flip-flops, or shoes on the beach), "squid" (slang for new guy; Sam is called this almost universally in the first few episodes), and lots of generic skater slang. Shoobie is actually a common term in beach communities that get a lot of day vacationers, especially on the Jersey Shore. It originally referred to the shoe boxes they used to bring their lunches.

The one episode where Otto thought he could spin his skateboard in the air and go back to his original spot, as if he could do it in reverse. It only gets worse when a ball gets launched into the air by a lawn mower at the right time, which hits his board and actually causes this to happen — causing him to assume it will happen again. And discussed by Sam who mentions it's physically impossible to have done so.

Hilarious in Hindsight: One episode had Sam attempting to shed his token geek persona and become as "cool" as his friends, including trying to adopt their bizarre slang. This led to a joke where he called someone's skateboard trick "sick", with "sick" meaning, in-universe, gross or ugly. A few years later, the word has come to be used in exactly the way Sam was trying to use it. This show was meant to capitalize on the extreme sports genre of the late 90s-2000s. Today, Splatoon has taken that mantle and rekindled it.

At the end of the episode, Sam introduces him to the gang and tries to get him to play hockey.

The Gift: Sam is shown that while he (at first) had almost no skill in roller blading, he was an obscenely good goalie. He notably he gets a lot better at any of the sports done as the show progresses, and even manages to coach an impromptu street hockey team made up of side characters when the others get sick. Twister is a natural when it comes to the artistic side of things, which is why he handles camera work and skateboarding videos. In one episode he turns out to be really good at making sandcastles.

Calling the Old Man Out
 Rocket Power / int_e52a0409
comment
Calling the Old Man Out: In "Race Across New Zealand", Ray spends most of the movie blatantly favoring Otto over Reggie due to an incident where the father of another competitor beat him in the same competition a few years earlier. Reggie finally gets fed up with this line of thinking and rips her dad apart, claiming that he doesn't care about her at all and just cares that Otto looks good. Since she and Raymundo normally have a good relationship and Ray treats both kids fairly, this is pretty sobering.

Flanderization: Twister. Watch him in the first couple of episodes where he's merely a bit slow. However later on, he's almost comedicly stupid. Otto as well, who increasingly became more self absorbed and obnoxious. An in-universe example with the Super Squid game where Sam of course makes fun of his friends. However, he doesn't make as much fun of Reggie.

OOC Is Serious Business
 Rocket Power / int_e83f211c
comment
O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Most times, when someone unintentionally shows up Otto or proves themselves to better at something that he is, his ego will deny it outright before grudgingly accepting it; this makes it all the more unusual in "Powergirl Surfers" when he's paired up against Trish in an impromptu surfing challenge and doesn't even hesitate to say (in a squeaky voice) that she's really good. Otto's also never been one to back down from a challenge, but in "Bruised Man's Curve", when the day to challenge Lars on the titular mountain board course arrives, Otto's confidence is shaken so much that he outright remarks that he can't do it. Reggie couldn't believe her ears at that comment. Violet is normally happy and cheerful, but in "Violet's Violet", she becomes depressed after her violet garden is accidentally destroyed by the kids and she yells at Merv for referring to her as "Violet". Merv later explains to the kids that Violet grew her violets for a gardening competition that she entered (and won) every year. In fact, Merv is the nice one in this episode. Even off the bat he knows it wasn't done maliciously, and he knows the kids feel bad once he explains why this is actually a bad thing. Reggie generally gets along great with her dad and tolerates Otto's posturing fairly gracefully. However, in "Race Across New Zealand", Raymundo's favoring of Otto to the point of ignoring that she is about to beat the boy Raymundo has set up as Otto's rival in favor of cheering only Otto on during a wind-surfing race makes her deliberately cut her brother off in the water so they both lose and then when Raymundo scolds her for absolutely everything that has gone wrong up to that point instead of realizing that this is highly unusual behavior for Reggie on several levels, she chews him out and claims he doesn't care about her before running off.

Bad "Bad Acting": In "Double-O Twistervision," the kids made their own extreme sport/spy movie "Gnarlyforce 5." Otto plays the lead hero, but tends to overdo it and act rather over the top, while Reggie acts as if she couldn't care less for her part, and Sam has terrible Performance Anxiety that causes everyone to laugh at him during his scene as a laboratory scientist. Averted with Lars as the villain, as he is clearly the best actor out of all the kids in the film.

Never Say
 Rocket Power / int_f51c5f3c
comment
Never Say "Die": Like many shows with deceased mothers targeted towards children, it is never directly said that Ray's wife "died" or "passed away", only implied, especially towards the end of the series. In "It Was a Dark and Stormy Day", the kids think Tito is murdering Ray, but words like "murder", "kill", and "dead" are never said. Instead, Reggie says that their dad is "not a goner" and once the kids realize their mistake (their explanation is not seen), Ray says, "You know Tito wouldn't do something like that." These words are also avoided in the sister episode "Escape From Lars Mountain", where the kids fake Twister's sudden disappearance (and possible death) to scare Lars. In "Twist of Fate", after Sam is saved from nearly going over a waterfall, he thanks his friends for saving him from "biting the big one".

Insult Backfire: Squid was used to identify the new kid on the block and originally belonged to Twister, who hated it. When Sam arrived, they gave him the squid nickname and he was generally pleased to have a nickname at all. Mostly a nickname that wasn't "Dink". Given that squids are extremely powerful and efficient predators, (to the point of some taking on sharks) it's somewhat bizarre that this is even used as an insult in the first place. Reggie explained it was short for "squirrelly new kid". Sam further embraced the Squid name in "Race Across New Zealand" when a local upon hearing his nickname told him the story of a mythological squid which became a spirit animal to Sam.

And discussed by Sam who mentions it's physically impossible to have done so. To bring up Tito's "Hopscotch" incident again... Also invoked.

However, at the end of the episode, he and his squad arrive and help hold up the surfboard to block the water from washing away the sandcastle. Merv Stimpleton is mostly shown as a crotchety old man. However, on two instances, he helps the kids out ("Violet's Violet") and in "Reggie's Big Beach Break," does warm up to the teens after he politely asks them to leave and they comply, and thank him for being a good host. (Heck, he warms up enough to throw a concluding party.) Many of his scenes with Violet also count.

Shown Their Work: On occasion, Otto and/or Reggie are shown to be working at the Shore Shack for various reasons. This actually is fully legal - Raymundo owns the business, so Otto and Reggie actually can work there (Sam points out that Ray can't require Sam or Twister to help out because they are not his children). Similarly, whenever they are working at the Shack, they're either washing dishes, cleaning up, or waiting tables.
