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.
