    The character of Ralph Bighead is voiced by none other than series creator Joe Murray. Murray had no interest in being a voice actor, but he was convinced by writer Martin Olson after Olson based the character on Murray's personality. According to Olson, the most humorous part of seeing Murray voice Ralph was when he had to scream "NEVER!" over and over again because, according to Olson, Murray never raised his voice to anyone.

    Inspiration for the show's characters: - Rocko's name is taken from the animal that he's based on, the rock-wallaby native to Australia. He is based on a wallaby that Joe Murray witnessed at a Bay Area zoo who, according to Murray, "was oblivious to the chaos around him." - Heffer's name is derived from the word "heifer," meaning a female cow who hasn't borne a calf. He is based on a friend of creator Joe Murray's who had limited social interaction and a voracious appetite. The design of his body was based on the shape of a hamburger, and his face, particularly his mouth, was based on the shape of a hot dog. - Filburt was created when Joe Murray decided that a turtle was best for an animal that was "afraid to come out of his shell." His name came from Murray deciding that he was a "nut with a shell that needed to be cracked," so he was named after the filburt nut, a type of hazelnut. - The Bigheads were inspired by two things: a couple of mean-spirited neighbors that Joe Murray grew up around, and the invasion of the cane toads in Australia, which led to ecological breakdowns in the country. The latter of the two may be the inspiration behind the combative relationship between the Bigheads and Rocko, who of course is from Australia.
