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

Very little of the music used on the show was composed specifically for it; most of the music was compiled from stock recordings of various classical compositions, the works of jazz composer Raymond Scott (whose works are often used as background music for cartoons), and vintage "mood music" tracks from the library of British production music company KPM (composed in the '50s and '60s by such people as C. King Palmer, Laurie Johnson and Jack Beaver). See more »

Goofs

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

Quotes

Ren: They all think I'm crazy, but I know better. It is not I who are crazy. It is I who am *mad*! Can't you hear them? Didn't you see the crowd?

A cartoon classic that's not for small children
8 July 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Holland) – See all my reviews

What makes "Ren and Stimpy" so brilliant?

Well the humor is great,the stories are surprising,the characters are grotesque and the dialogue is highly inventive.

Yet this cartoon isn't for small children since a lot of the humor is very difficult to understand and sometimes even political.Therefore I would recommend it to people aged from 12 or so.Then it is a true blast!

Besides Ren and Stimpy other brilliant characters are Muddy Mudskipper,The Powdered Toast Man,Haggis MacHaggis,Mr. "No Sir,I don't like it" Horse,Wilbur J. Cobb and of course the legendary Lummox.

My favorite cartoons are "The Lair of the Lummox","Black Hole","Ren's Toothache","Sven Hoek","Big Baby Scam","Stimpy's Fan Club","PreHistoric Stimpy","Dinner Party" and "Reverend Jack Cheese". Besides those cartoons there are several brilliant short commercials like "Log" and "Chicken in a drawer".

And last but not least there is the great use of classical music in the series.The makers often use music from my favorite composer Tchaikovski,especially the "Nutcracker".

A big thank you to John K. for his work! 10/10
