"I Solemnly Swear..."
15 November 2007 | by (Brisbane, Australia.) – See all my reviews

This episode contains both the best and some of the most mediocre of the series. "Robin Hoëk", being the latter. We find Stimpy reading a story (to himself, so commanded by Ren), which happens to be a take on Robin Hood. Ren becomes the Robin, and Stimpy every other character in the story.

The non-sensical alterations to the story are hit-and-miss (Ren firing a watermelon through his bow isn't that clever, but the swarming man-eating Monks living in the castle moat is absurd enough to be hilarious). After a Rapunzel-style interlude, they face-off with the Sheriff, (a Wild-West type who really puts up a pathetic fight, really). This half of the episode is the weaker half.

"Nurse Stimpy" is an absolute genius piece of animation. We find Stimpy taking care of Ren (who suffers from a mysterious but (serious!?) disease).

Stimpy's idea of care is hilarious, and the satirical play on regular medical procedures is great, as are Stimpy's various cut-scenes over the months. This episode represents "Ren & Stimpy" at it's best.
