So what do people think of the new Ren & Stimpy show... a few thoughts...
1) AVOID EATING during or immediately before
the show. Learn from my mistake...
2) In the old R&S usenet newsgroup there was
a heated argument over if R&S were gay. This
has been answered, and how...
3)Best lines: "I don't give a rat's ass about
your needs!"  "I'm the pitcher, you're the
catcher!"

First Ren & Stimpy was OK, but I dunno what to say about this one  tongue

A worse crime, though was committed when the studio behind R&S decided to make a new Baby Huey cartoon (from Harvey productions) and it took a sick, twisted life of its own. And I hated the old Baby Huey to start with.

There are some things in life I enjoyed and remembered as good times...  I remember laughing at R&S back in elementary school.  I watched the show tonight and thought "How the hell did I ever enjoy this utterly disgusting piece of shit for a show?"

it was meh. I like the nickelodeon ones better than this episode. I'll watch some more before i totally dismiss it. This one was kinda boring. the swearing was strange at first b/c i wasn't used to it. It definitly was not same the as the Nickelodeon version. I was afraid that since it was going to more risky that they would take it too far. They did at some points. I really did not need to see them have sex. That part botherd me the most. I also didn't need to see the guy's balls take down the vacancy sign at the end either. My favorite part was the return of Dr. Stupid. 

At first i thought well since i did first watch it when i was like 5 or 6, maybe i just didn't understand it then and it didn't seem as bad, but when i watched the "classic one" at 11:30 i enjoyed a lot more. Maybe i'm just not ready for it to be that dirty.

But i am  glad they are putting the classic ones at 11:30! i haven't seen them in years.

I think the reason people have disliked the show so greatly is because of Ren and Simpy's coming out of the closet. I mean I had always noticed some scenes on classic Ren & Stimpy when they seemed oddly fond of one another. I'd always figured they were just good friends. Now, I don't have a problem with gay people it's just awkward to see a cartoon a lot of us grew up with come out. I mean think what would've happened if Pepperrmint Patti had come out during the 70's. Now it wasn't awkward when Mr. Garrison admitted he was gay on South Park but that was because everyone who watched more than 10 episodes of the show would know that he's probably gay. It was a smooth transition from everyone realizing it but he staying in the closet to him out of the closet. John K. will probably get some angry fan mail as well as TNN but I'm glad that John's working on what he loves to do (his previous cartoons have been rather unsuccessful). I thought the show was decent despite some awkward moments. On a positive note, I liked Gary the Rat and Stripperella much more than I thought I would.

I hate Ren and Stimpy. They are stupid. I don't really care to much about this new one, but it's nice to know it's still on, so I can NOT watch it. I'll perver to do Homework than watch that. Dame Programme!!!!   mad Anyway welcome to PEEL new people I hope you like here!   smile

I too was disappointed. As a big fan of the original R&S, I had thought that this show's return would give some realistic hope for the return of Futurama. Instead, I got the impression from last nite's ep that Krisfalusi was trying to kill off this cartoon once and for all. (The word is TNN ordered only 6 new R&S eps). Even TNN's repeat later of the classic nick episode (Space Madness / The Boy who Cried Rat" ) was marred in that to make room for extra commercials, the "Yak Shaving Day" bit was cut out. On top of that, The Stripper and Rat cartoons were awful; I want those 2 hours of my life back. My God, now I'm rooting for Spike Lee to win his lawsuit against TNN.

It was pretty second rate...Stimpy's voice does not cut the mustard.

Plus getting to see classic R & S 'Space Madness' later that night was the perfect comparison. 

I guess I will give it another chance though.

Even though, the show has um..lost a lot of it's tastefulness it should still be respected. See, in the 70's and 80's cartoon show in America began to be taken over by big evil companies that thought it was more important for kids to learn a big moral lesson instead of have fun. Everyone knows moral lessons suck ass so this was bad time in cartoon history. Shows like Care Bears were dominant while the classic slapstick comedy of yore disappeared. John K. came from Canada with a plan: to give cartoons back to the cartoonists and away from the evil network executives and ultra-religious and sensitive stupid people. His first cartoon was Mighty Mouse but it got canned when rumours abounded that the flower Might Mouse got his powers from (by snortig it) was an opiate flower. Well in 1991, John K. got Ren & Stimpy on Nickelodeon and the show was loved by all cartoonists who had been forced to make shows like Fat Albert, Davey and Goliath (does that count?), Pretty Pony, and the force of all cartoon evil, Care Bears. Ren and Stimpy doesn't try to teach it lets you love and laugh. The Simpsons also placed quite a part in making cartoons more fun for the animators as well as the public. And for all of you who are fans of Futurama but hate Ren & Stimpy: David X. Cohen wrote for R&S! Ha! Mwa-hah-ha! But the new episode wasn't as good at the old ones.

I think it was just one episode but it was the most violent episode of R&S ever. He mentions it on the Futurama commentary.

With the new R&S and many innuendos revealed...does this mean that TNN is also for GAY men? I can't imagine there being a male Stripperela.

OC: You are correct that R&S should be respected. This may sound like heresy here, but Kricfalusi and Spumco are the absolute best character animators in the business. I just wish that JK still respected R&S.

They talked about R&S in the Raging Bender commentary, and the impression that I got was that it was the director of the episode who had worked on the most violent ep of R&S. He and Billy West spend a small amount of time chewing the fat, and it just seems that DXC really knows his cartoons, not that he worked on them.

Someone can correct me if i'm wrong.

If he wrote for R&S, then it must have been the supposedly crappy non-Spumco years. Doesn't John K. hate it when non-animators write cartoons?

Yes, petty much everyone at Spumco hates scriptwriters who don't animate. In fact, during my first year online I came across a website made by a guy from Spumco which basically bashed every cartoon (sometimes individually) written by people who weren't animators. Despite the fact that a lot of my favorite cartoons now are written by guys who aren't animators I still thought it was funny.

::looks at OC::

It looks like someone read John K.'s interview with The Onion A.V. Club in "The Tenacity of the Cockroach."

Oh, and the new R&S sounds too bad for words. It's lucky I don't watch TNN.

Does anyone remember that really bad superhero show that Spumco made? It was on Adult Swim for about four weeks. Horrible piece of monkey feces. Not a high-point in Kricfalusi's career.

True, Ripping Friends was in general weak, but the character "Jeanne Poole" was fantastic. She's up there with Leela. Too bad she was in only one ep.

If you could take a big pile of feces and some how process it into a TV show, you'd probably have something like the new Ren and Stimpy.

It is now my mission in life to punch John K in the nose if I ever see him.

wait now, you have to remember how inconsistent ren and stimpy are. They most likely won't like in a bum's mouth in the next one, they might not even be gay. I'd watch a few epsoides before you pass judgement on the whole thing. In the old show they lived in everything from a regular house to a whale to a bird hose. Sometimes no house at all. also sometimes in the old ones ren and stimpy where like homosexuals and sometimes they wern't.

I do remember an episode where Stimpy is in a limo enjoying the company of many a fine sexy feline. I also remember one where they were on a diffferent planet and Ren ,while hallucinating, spotted this sexy looking female dog. He seemed genuienly attracted to her.

The were canadian in one episode, Canadian Kilted Yaksmen! that was awesome, or when they were lumberjacks. One time they lived in a rotting cow, who's backside was the door and Stimpy fell in love with a frozen chicken.

Tonight's episode was actually pretty damn good. It gave us a pretty good glimpse into the past of Ren. I ddn't really see the first three minutes of it, so I regret not seeing what horrible thing Ren did to Stimpy to make him so unhappy. It turns out the whole homosexual thing between Ren & Stimpy isn't going to be continuing and it was probably a one-time episode. Despite some unecessary violence (not to gorey) I thought this was a pretty decent episode. Much better than last weeks and not near as disgusting. Hopefully, next week's episode will be just as good. And I still like Gary the Rat.

I had to work late last week, so tonight was the first night that I saw the new R&S show.  My first impression is that John K. has some...issues over something.  Some of it seemed funny, but there was a lot of hit and miss to it, like he's, I dunno, trying too hard to be funny and edgy?  Compared to the classic episodes that came on afterwards, Black Hole and Stimpy's Invention, it just seemed like it's trying to be too adult.  Sort of like a kid saying curse words, and going look at me, I'm an adult, I can do grown-up things.  I think that while it could have potential, it seems like there's a ways to go.

Im a bit skeptical. Ren & Stimpy has never really worked for people over 10...

Thats why it got cancelled so many times.
