Rocket Power is an American animated television series. The series debuted on Nickelodeon on August 16, 1999. The series ended on July 30, 2004 after four seasons.[1] The show mainly revolves around four friends and their daily lives of playing extreme sports, surfing, and getting into situations.


Rocket Power involves the daily situations of a group of friends, named Otto Rocket, Regina "Reggie" Rocket, Sam "Squid" Dullard, and Maurice "Twister" Rodriguez, as they spend their free time playing extreme sports, such as surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, and more. Otto and Reggie live with their dad, Ray, who along with his business partner, Tito Makani, runs a snack bar called Shore Shack, where the kids usually hang out. In most episodes, they get involved in competitions, but end up learning that their friendship is more important than winning. The series is set in the fictional California town of Ocean Shores.
