Reviews and Comments

From TibbyH :

TV animation was never the same when The Ren & Stimpy show premiered. An important first season of television ended with one of the best episodes to ever grace the airwaves, "Stimpy's Invention". To say this cartoon is good is an understatement. Masterful storyboarding on top of wonderful writing breathe back live into the zombified animation industry. This also showcases how great of characters Ren Hoek and Stimpson J. Cat are, giving them three dimensional depth and showing how human they really are. Stimpy's an idiot, but he just wants to make Ren happy. To those who think this show is only fart jokes and gross out, give this episode a try. If "Happy Happy, Joy Joy" gets stuck in your head, you can thank me later.
