which once is the best out of all of these Spike TV Animated Shows:

Gary the Rat: Attorney Gary Andrews doesn't know why, but he recently metamorphosed into a feral six-foot rat. Some say his "change" might be karma for being so bad. Until Gary figures out why he's like this he has decided to try and function the best he can in a "human" world.

Ren and Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon": In 2002, John K. received a phone call from a cable channel called TNN (now Spike TV). TNN was struggling against other channels and decided to give the creator a new chance. In June of 2003, Ren and Stimpy returned with 3 all-new episodes (which used plots developed for the original Nick show), plus the classic episodes the way they were meant to be seen. The show continues the adventures of the duo from the cult classic cartoon series, placing them in a completely No-Nickelodeon-Censorship universe.

This Just In: The kind of guy who says what everybody's thinking, Newport has no filter. If it's in his head, it's out of his mouth and there's absolutely no stopping him -- no matter what how much his friends are going to have to duck and cover. And whether it's a visit from Ted Kennedy, losing his favorite bar to women, or throwing a "Warfare" to raise money for the military still in Iraq, one thing is for sure: If it's in the news, and on your minds, it's on "This Just In."

Stripperella: From Stan Lee, the man who brought us such popular superheroes as Spider-Man and The X-Men, comes this new kind of superhero in the form of the animated series Stripperella. Pamela Anderson provides the voice of Erotica Jones who is stripper by night and superhero Stripperella by even later at night.

please tell me which once is the best!

Gary the Rat was a decent show. The ONLY decent show out of the 3 of those 4 that I have seen. Adut Party cartoon is best forgotten, and Striperilla just tried way to hard to be funny. I'm sorry, but if you think Adult Party Cartoon was as good as the original series, you are retarded.

Gary the Rat - Eh, decent. I haven't seen much of it (only 1 or 2 episodes from what I recall), but it was alright. A few laughs here and there, though nothing spectacular.

Ren and Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" - Never liked Ren and Stimpy, and this was even worse than the original series. Same crappy humour, just more explicit and much less funny.

This Just In - Never saw it.

Stripperella - Sad. Had the potential to be a pretty funny show, but was filled with bad jokes - and the few good jokes it did were made lame too by poor execution and lack of subtlety. Just the same damn observations on Superhero shows being shoved down your throat... the whole show was basically just an excuse for gratituitous cartoon nudity. Just a crappy show.

So, yeah, basically agree with Newhook_1. Gary the Rat was far from great, but definitely the best out of the shows you listed there (that I've seen, of course).

Nobody likes any of those shows.  The only things on Spike TV worth watching are MacGyver and Star Trek.

I'm surprised you don't like R&S:APC, David A. You'r insanely enraged at Nickelodeon for killing all their old shows, and R&S:APC is John K. bringing the spirit of the original Ren and Stimpy back.

First of all, John, I'm not enraged at Nickelodeon, insanely or otherwise.  I do think that it's sad that a channel that once aired a number of fine programs no longer does so, but it's really not something that I spend time lamenting.  I just don't watch Nickelodeon anymore.

Second, it's mostly live-action shows like Pete & Pete that I miss from Nickelodeon.  Nicktoons are where it all started to go downhill.

Third, if I wanted to watch Ren & Stimpy, I'd watch the original.  I don't need any lame remakes of old cartoons, thank you.

All those shows are pure shit, occasionally the channel will show a good movie, but aside from that it's really lame
