Space madness - A total classic.
29 September 2011 | by the_chojin_livesSee all my reviews

Space Madness is probably the best Ren and Stimpy episode you're ever likely to encounter. If you're unfamiliar with the characters and what Ren and Stimpy is all about then this is a good place to start. It's well written, the voice acting by Billy West - who provides most of the voice in Futurama (Fry, Professor, Zoidberg)- is absolutely amazing and adds real character, humour, warmth and life to the animation.

It's the usual Ren meltdown situation, Ren becomes eerily transfixed on the concept of going mad in space and how to avoid it. The isolation and exploration of deep space drives Ren quickly insane, this causes a humorous memorable meltdown with funny results.

There's obvious reasons why children loved Ren and Stimpy's wacky antics but there's much to offer an adult audience too. Ren's madness is quite something to witness, the madness portrayed in the episode is similar to real psychotic delusions - some which may occur in space or under the influence of "space-like drugs", such as LSD, PCP or cocaine mixed with amphetamines.
