Network Celebrates the June 28th DVD Release of
Ren & Stimpy: Seasons Three and a Halfish with
Hilarious Four-Episode Marathon
NEW YORK, June 9 -- The twisted misadventures of insane
Chihuahua, "Ren," and his "eediot" sidekick feline, "Stimpy," join TV Land for
one night only when the network airs a two-hour marathon of the duo's most
memorable episodes on Friday, June 17 from 12 a.m. to 2 a.m. ET/PT. The
incredibly successful, animated series, which developed a huge cult following,
is filled with bizarre antics and delivers non-stop humor to fans of all ages.
The series features a mismatch made in animation heaven with "Ren," a
temperamental and headstrong Chihuahua, and "Stimpy," a loyal and trusting
cat. The two find themselves in impossible situations and exhibit often gross
and shocking behavior. Together, they get up to all sorts of wacky antics,
from going into space to acting as door-to-door rubber nipples salesmen.
Although it launched on Nickelodeon in 1991, the show's main audience was
college and university students, who quickly tapped into its subversive nature
and excellent characterization. The Ren & Stimpy Show earned an Emmy
nomination in 1993. Creator John Kricfalusi (John K.) provided the voice for
"Ren Hoek" (1991-1993), "Mr. Horse" (1991-1993) as well as other characters.
Billy West provided the voices for Stimpson J. "Stimpy" Cat (1991-1996), "Ren
Hoek" (1992-1996), "Mr. Horse" (1992-1996), "Sven Hoek" (1992), "hey, it's
That Guy" (1991-1995), "Mr. Pipe" (1991-1993) and others.
The Ren & Stimpy: Seasons Three and a Halfish DVD is a three-disc boxed
set featuring all the classic episodes from the Third (and half of the fourth)
seasons of Ren & Stimpy. In addition to 17 historical cartoons, the DVD
includes audio commentary from John K. and the Spumco Animation team. For the
first time ever, viewers will be able to learn what actually happened to "Ren
& Stimpy" both before and after John K's infamous departure. And if that isn't
enough, the DVD also features in-character commentary from "Ren & Stimpy"
themselves, as Stimpson J. Cat and Ren Hoek provide their own unique brand of
twisted insight on their cartoon adventures.
