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.

Trivia

Very little of the music used on the show was composed specifically for it; most of the music was compiled from stock recordings of various classical compositions, the works of jazz composer Raymond Scott (whose works are often used as background music for cartoons), and vintage "mood music" tracks from the library of British production music company KPM (composed in the '50s and '60s by such people as C. King Palmer, Laurie Johnson and Jack Beaver). See more »

Goofs

Stimpy's Sammy Mantis disguise kit includes a "screw-on thorax" but it's clearly an abdomen. See more »

Quotes

Ren: At last I have control of your T.V. set. Is you're mother there? No? Good! Welcome to our secret headquarters.
Stimpy: Deep inside the lower intestine of a sperm whale!
Sperm Whale: [At vet's office, clutching stomah] OH GOD! GOD! I CAN'T STAND IT! MAKE THE PAIN STOP!

Another Nickelodeon Cartoon Classic!
23 May 2004 | by SonicStuartSee all my reviews

The Ren and Stimpy Show is a funny and can sometimes be a little gross but I still like it kind of cartoon! The Ren and Stimpy Show is about an intense hyperactive chihuahua and a empty-brained cat who share all those weird bizarre and often repulsive adventures. This show is one of my favorite Nickelodeon shows that was also pretty popular and it was also one of the first three Nickelodeon cartoons that started the whole Nicktoons era. The Ren and Stimpy Show was one of the first three nicktoon shows along with Doug and Rugrats. I remember that this show used to be apart of Nickelodeon's SNICK Saturdays until those stupid Rugrats took it's place but luckily I was glad when SpongeBob Squarepants kicked Rugrats out of the SNICK line-up and replace their time slot! Then I remember when this show came back for a little while in early 2000 and showed reruns again until Nickelodeon canceled it again! Another thing I remember about this show was when they started making TV audience ratings, most of the Nickelodeon cartoons were rated TV-Y and this one was the only Nickelodeon cartoon to be rated TV-Y7.

User Rating: 6/10

BOTTOM LINE: ANOTHER NICKELODEON CARTOON CLASSIC OF THE 1990's!
