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

The writers of the Nintendo Power Player's Guide series of video game reference books were, apparently, huge Ren and Stimpy fans. The Super Mario 64 guide features a headline regarding Mario running across a log entitled "It's big, it's heavy, it's wood." They go on to say that "this log is not better than bad, in fact, it's much worse." Likewise, a heading in the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time guide about the Happy Mask Shop is entitled "happy happy, joy joy." See more »

One of the Most Disturbing Mainstream Shows Ever
25 March 2004 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

I caught my first episodes of Ren and Stimpy in 1993 after hearing classmates rave on about how good a show this was. Unbeknownst to me I started watching Ren and Stimpy just when the bad episodes started airing. At the time I could not find any reason at all why a show this devoid of value would be as popular as it was. It didn't take too long before I thought "Why the hell am I watching this?" and left the Ren and Stimpy Watching to others.

Fortunately my brother got hold of some tapes of earlier episodes and I quickly began to see why Ren and Stimpy had a good reputation. It was amusing in a very offbeat way and had a method to it's madness. I wish I had never wasted several hours of my life I'll never get back watching the later episodes but I'm glad I was able to see the early ones.
