In the first episode of Commander Höek and Cadet Stimpy, Höek (Ren) succumbs to space madness; space food and a hot bath without gravity only exacerbate Ren's loss of sanity. When Stimpy subdues Höek, the latter believes Stimpy is the one suffering from the madness, and puts him in charge of guarding the History Eraser Button. Ultimately, the show's announcer drives Stimpy to push the button, resulting in Ren, Stimpy, and the announcer being erased from existence (the former two are even erased from the Ren & Stimpy logo!).
