Ren and Stimpy Show

The Ren and Stimpy Show is an American animated television series created by Canadian animator John Kricfalusi.[1] The series follows the adventures of the eponymous characters: Ren Höek, a neurotic “asthma-hound” chihuahua, and Stimpson J. Cat (a.k.a. Stimpy) — a simpleminded cat. They wander around in nonsensical adventures reminiscent of the Golden Age of American animation.[2] Kricfalusi created the characters around 1979, while working on low-budget TV cartoons. The two characters were originally conceived as unrelated doodles until Kricfalusi’s co-worker, Joel Fajnor, advised Kricfalusi to pair them together.[3]

Though a product of the children’s cable network Nickelodeon, The Ren & Stimpy Show had a reputation for subversive gross-out humor, often involving nasal mucus and flatulence.[2] While primarily controversial for grotesque imagery and violence[2], the series also lampooned aspects of western culture, such as materialism[4] and superstition.[5] In 1992 John Kricfalusi, the show’s creator (and voice of Ren), was removed from the show, with production being moved from his Spümcø studios to Games Animation[6], where it stayed until its cancellation in 1996. It can currently be seen on Nickelodeon spinoff channel Nicktoons and was featured as part of Nick Rewind broadcasts in 2006.
