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.

A Hilarious Show
20 January 2002 | by Jdc102See all my reviews

Ren and Stimpy is one funny cartoon show. It is so funny to look back on re-runs and be so surprised that some of the stuff was on Nickelodeon, but it was so cool they could easily get away with all this stuff. But dont get me wrong, this is a very good show, but some of it is more directed at adults, which is good.

I really think that Comedy Central or Cartoon Network should pay attention and show re-runs of this modern cartoon classic.
