Crop And Save
The Ren & Stimpy Show (1991)
Great, but a little disappointing
REN AND STIMPY ROCK!!!
Just had to get that out of the way before I comment... I grew up watching this cartoon and I loved every minute of it. When I heard that all of the episodes were coming out on DVD, I was thrilled! Then I heard they would be UNCUT and UNCENCORED! Even Better! Then I got them. All of the original episodes are there, however, they are not all "uncut". Many episodes have scenes deleted from their original airing. What concerns me is that there are episodes that have new footage added in, makes them more vulgar (which I love), but in other episodes, footage has been removed that really has no bearing on the episode (which I hate). I read that John K. (creator of the series) had no idea what the final releases would contain and that it was Nickelodeon that assembled the DVD. So, for whatever reason, Nick thought it best to remove certain scenes.
Now, don't get me wrong, wonderful feelings of a past childhood resurfaced when I watched these gross, funny, animated tales. It was great to see my old friends Powdered Toast Man, Mr. Horse, Sven Hoek, Muddy Mudskipper, the Nerve Ending Fairy, and of course, R & S. But I'd be lying if I said something wasn't missing.
My Rating: 7* out of 10*
