    I remember the first time I saw them was at the Cartoon Festival (or whatever it's called)... Spike and Mike's Sick & Twisted Cartoon Festival maybe?

    In the original - before TV - Ren was a pot smoking chihuahua always holding a joint (which is why even in the TV version his eyes sag and are bloodshot), and Stimpy was an acid-tripping cat (always with a dose of acid on his tongue - again why his tongue sticks out so much even in the TV version).

    Loved the TV show, until it was Nickelodeanized.

    "would watch by myself"...makes it sound like such a hypothetical activity.

    I am a parent who HAS watched Ren & Stimpy myself.

    It's log, it's log, it's big, it's heavy, it's wood.
    It's log, it's log, it's better than bad, it's good.

    Yes, I did watch it by myself and would watch it again if it was on.

    I remember the band that provided the music for the show was called 'The Screaming Lederhosen"

    How can he possibly resist the maddening urge to erradicate history at the mere push of a single button? The beautiful, shiny button? The jolly, candy-like button? Will he hold out, folks? Can he hold out?
    I first discovered Ren and Stimpy long before I had kids - before they were even on my radar in fact. I was post college and one of those emerging adults that likes cartoons, I guess (I still love an old Warner Bros. with a good Carl Stalling musical arrangment) I still ocassionally think about scenes from R and S and snicker to myself. It seems to me that many cartoons of today are derived from the style, pacing and off-the-wall, non-sequitor type humor they perfected. Great stuff. Its hard to imagine Sponge Bob's destructiuon of children's minds would have been possible without those freaks of nature R&S.
