2. Heffer Wolfe
Heffer Wolfe is Rocko's best friend. Hef is a steer who was adopted, and raised, by wolves. He has many hobbies including eating, rollerskating, eating, skiing, eating, watching tv, and oh yes, eating. His boyish innocence and naivety often put him at odds with his street savvy best friend Rocko. However, as his intentions are always good and his heart pure, all is always forgiven. Although this friendship is often tested, Heffer and Rocko exemplify the ultimate in cartoon "role-models" for any friendship.

Exactly when the first time he and Rocko had first met is uncertain.

4. Spunky
Spunky is Rocko's faithful dog. He was left on Rocko's doorstep when he was just a pup. When Rocko found Spunky there, he christened the shirt style he was wearing as lucky. Rocko is seldom found not wearing this style of shirt for this reason. Spunky passes his days sleeping, eating, and innocently getting into mischief at Rocko's expense. Occationally possessed, or lost, he symbolizes the epitomy of man's (marsupial's) best friend.
