Storyline

An intense, hyperactive chihuahua (Is there any other kind?) and a happy-go-lucky, empty-brained cat share bizarre and often repulsive adventures. Their experiences usually involve hairballs, filthy litterboxes, "magic nose goblins", sentient farts, jars of spit, outhouses, eating dirt, monkey vermin and any other imaginable disgusting substance. Written by Michael "Rabbit" Hutchison <rabhutch@spacestar.net>

Trivia

Series creator John Kricfalusi was adamant about Stimpy not having a thick dopey sounding voice commonly seen in dim-witted cartoon sidekicks, having already chosen Billy West to provide Stimpy's voice, Mr West tested a variety of voices until John Kricfalusi finally settled on a Larry Fine type voice.

Goofs

Stimpy's Sammy Mantis disguise kit includes a "screw-on thorax" but it's clearly an abdomen. See more »

Ren: President... Ha! What a joke. President. President of what? *His* fan club! How they love him! Look at him, lying asleeeeep. The idol of millions. He's a fool! A sad, silly little fool. How easily I could end the farce... with these hands! These DIRTY hands! AND WITH THESE HANDS I HOLD ...

Oh my belov-ed ice cream bar! How I love to lick your creamy center!
26 October 2004 | by (Baltimore US of A) – See all my reviews

Very sick, Very ahead of its time! The background is very camp, and reminds you of the old fifties cartoons. The same style of sets and I like when they use people but never show there faces. however this similarity stops there.

Most of the stories are clever and funny with a bit of sick humor and or gross context thrown in. The gags are mostly funny because there taken to their extreme. Like the old WB Coyote falling from the highest cliff over and over and over. Or they play out what we all would like to be doing in real life. They can even poke fun at themselves and do so often. I love them and recommend them to anyone with a good sense of humor, but they are not what I would show my kids.
