Wasn't this the pilot?
19 June 2005 | by (Taichung, Taiwan) – See all my reviews

I remember first seeing this at the "Animation Celebration" (or annual "Tournee"?); it was my first glimpse into the world of Ren and Stimpy! One treat; I'd invited a work buddy to "come with," and he was completely won over--he became a R&S fan to beat all. So it was a special honor to be party to his initiation.

The coolest thing was seeing this 35mm, on the "big screen," where you could enjoy attention lavished on graphic detail work, such as in the scene where Ren is incensed at some perceived slight to his personal hygiene, and promptly rushes over (good dog that he is) to rinse his mouth in the collectively used prison toilet. I remember that the artist did some very creative texture work on the nicely modulated brown scum ringing the bowl. In this same vein, my buddy was tickled pink by the scene in the '50s retro home which was to be their new home; the combination of the tastefully "period" sharp edges and music touched him deeply.

Ah! Art!
