Overview

Ren and Stimpy finally make it to the DVD racks with this First and Second Seasons Uncut Collector's Edition Box Set from Paramount. Featuring all-new remastered and uncut versions of four classic episodes, this set has been long in the works and should prove successful thanks to the series' rabid fan base. The show's creator, John Kricfalusi, is not only back with the dynamic duo (he was canned by Nickelodeon after an ugly fallout with the company), but he has inserted most of the lost footage that the network originally had issues with, while also taking time out to record six separate commentaries with some of his original Spümcø cronies. He brings with him the controversial "banned" episode: "Man's Best Friend, along with an unedited version of the pilot episode, "Big House Blues, which finds Ren and Stimpy in a boot camp for pets as they are mercilessly broken into strict domesticity. Pencil tests, storyboards, and image galleries also await demented viewers as they pour through the set, with a "Ren & Stimpy: In the Beginning" featurette putting the cherry on top of this valued package. Note to viewers, though the episodes say that they are uncut, there have been a few reported unoffending and miniscule cuts that John K. has gone on record as saying Nickelodeon must have snipped shortly after firing him. The casual Ren & Stimpy viewer might not catch some of the strange trims, though dedicated followers have made their disappointment known. Still, this set is the best release there is for these animated classics right now. Loaded with wild goodies and never-before-seen footage that people have been dying to see, this collector's edition is truly one to sing "Happy Happy, Joy Joy" over.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Before there was the dumb humor of Beavis and Butt-head, and before Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block of cartoons, there was Ren & Stimpy, the first in a series of shows that established cable TV as a primary outlet for alternative animation. Created by animator John Kricfalusi, Ren Hoek voiced by Kricfalusi was a mean, loudmouthed Chihuahua; his buddy Stimpy Billy West was a goofy, fat red cat with a taste for kitty litter. The often strange adventures the two participate in include Ren threatening Stimpy with his toothbrush after he goes insane in "Space Madness"; saving a talking horse from a burning building in "Firedogs"; and disguising themselves as monkeys to get fed at the zoo in "Monkey See, Monkey Don't." Some of the greatest episodes were "Stimpy's Invention" -- the best of the series, according to fans -- wherein Stimpy designs a Happy Helmet and Ren is forced to sing the "Happy Happy, Joy Joy" song. Also high on fans' lists is the gross "Ren's Toothache," a disgusting lesson on what happens when teeth aren't brushed. The Ren & Stimpy Show also featured various animated shorts: Favorites included here are fake advertisements for the "Log" and "High Fashion Log for Girls," sung to the Slinky theme, "It's thick, it's heavy, it's wood!"; Stimpy's "Ask Dr. Stupid" segments; and the hysterical Powdered Toast Man voiced by Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In announcer Gary Owens. Unfortunately for John K., his Ren and Stimpy cartoons pushed the limits at the kid-friendly network Nickelodeon, and most of his creations were edited, leading to his departure from the show at the start of Season 3. The episode "Man's Best Friend," included here in the bonus materials, was completely banned from the network and never shown. The Ren & Stimpy Show Uncut is an absolute must for any fan, especially those who consider the first two Kricfalusi seasons to be the best of Ren & Stimpy's five-year run.
