"Hang" in there...
25 November 2007 | by (Brisbane, Australia.) – See all my reviews

"Out West" sees the two thrown into the classic Wild West theme, complete with two moronic, tobacco-chewing, illiterate red-neck hick types who are crazy about hangings. In fact, they confess to one another, they've hung pretty much everyone in town.

Ren & Stimpy blow in, and immediately draw the attention of the lynching-enthusiasts. This is a very obscure and sick (but brilliant) episode, as it really does portray hangings as a funny kind of sport. We see a nice musical finale that features accompaniment from a banjo-plucking man who has been strung-up himself. Those interested in canning Ren & Stimpy at the time surely would of used this scene as ammo.

We are then plunged back into John K.'s brilliant take on (50's-era) suburban America, where Ren & Stimpy are traveling salesmen, looking to offload rubber-nipples. (Stimpy's monologue, cruelly cut-short by Ren's violence, is a clever poke at the American dream).

The residences they visit are hilarious (and even Lynchian?). The guilt-ridden and paranoid horse is a brilliant and twisted insight; the abducted walrus's cry for help is spine-tingling. Finally, they arrive at a regular American middle-class 50's style home, where they begin to work their salesman pitch - ending in, of course, an irreverent bull-riding scene. Funny episode.
