Bakshi has teamed up with "Ren & Stimpy" creator John Kricfalusi to create down and dirty animated features that will cost under $10 million. First up is "Bobby's Girl", a script they hatched together.
Bakshi will make his comeback through Kricfalusi's Spumco studio, which is reviving Ren & Stimpy for TNN. It's an appropriate pairing, since Kricfalusi has been as rebellious on the small screen as Bakshi has been in features, and paid for it.

Bakshi rekindled a relationship with Kricfalusi that began when Bakshi hired him to direct episodes of one of his TV cartoons, Mighty Mouse: The New Adventures, which Kricfalusi said made Ren & Stimpy saleable.
"There was no market for creator-driven cartoons, only toy tie-ins or rehashes of old ones", said Kricfalusi. "Ralph got CBS to let him do what he wanted, and 'Mighty Mouse' was so groundbreaking that it opened the door for 'Ren & Stimpy' and everything that followed, from 'The Simpsons ( news - Y! TV)' to 'Roger Rabbit' "

"Bobby's Girl", which they wrote during the Mighty Mouse days, will be the first feature that will be taken to market by exec producers Eric Gardner and Kevin Kolde. The aim is not to duplicate the family-friendly development slates at Disney or DreamWorks.
"It's R-rated teen exploitation", said Kricfalusi. "The animation you see today, whether it's Disney, CGI or Adam Sandler, all looks the same. I think people are tired of it. I've always wanted to use the full power of the animated theatrical cartoon. If I've got the chance to animate sexy girls, (they) ought to bounce."

If you really want to see what I think about this, see your other thread you made two seconds ago.

Question, does this guy pay you to suck him or do you do it for free?

The price you have to pay to meet a "celebrity".

Here's how it went behind the scenes.

John: Bakshi, I need to spread information about my new crap-o-rama movie that can compete with my American Japanimation movie 'Bounce-Booby-Tit-Ass-Mon', how can we spread it?
Bakshi: I know this guy, he's on the internet...that's where it matters John. Remember Paris Hilton?
John: Bam!
