Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon"

Post  Rocko on Mon Feb 04, 2013 7:02 pm

~Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" is an animated television series created by Canadian animator John Kricfalusi for the cable network Spike (formerly TNN). The series was an adults-only-revival and spin-off of the original animated series, The Ren & Stimpy Show, which had previously aired on the American children's cable network Nickelodeon. It aired from June 26, 2003 to August 14, 2003, when Spike's entire animation block was discontinued.~


History
'The original series was known to be controversial, and its creator had been known for disputing content with censors. When Nickelodeon fired Kricfalusi in 1992, the Nickelodeon-owned studio Games Animation took over the series, leading many animators to quit the series. The Ren and Stimpy Show was canceled in 1996. In 2002, Viacom hired John Kricfalusi to produce a new version of his series for an updated version of the TNN network devoted specifically to programming for male audiences. Kricfalusi said that TNN wanted an "extreme" version of The Ren & Stimpy Show. TNN gave Kricfalusi greater control of the writing and contents of the episodes than the control given by Nickelodeon. Kricfalusi produced seven new cartoons aimed at adult audiences. A few of the head storyboard artists, screenwriters, and animators returned from the original Ren and Stimpy series, such as Vincent Waller, Eddie Fitzgerald, and Jim Smith, but most of the animation and writing team were a new team of artists, specifically instructed and headed by Kricfalusi himself.
Many of the original voice cast members returned with the exception of Billy West, who said this series wasn't funny and believed being in it would hurt his career, which led to Eric Bauza filling the role of Stimpy. West shared the role of Stimpy with Eric Bauza for one episode, but the show in question, "Man's Best Friend", was produced during the Spümcø era of Nickelodeon, when West was still with the show. Cast members Harris Peet and Cheryl Chase also returned, and Kricfalusi's father Mike Kricfalusi and long-time childhood friend Tom Hay provided some voices.
All of the episodes were animated at Carbunkle Cartoons, the studio that Kricfalusi would send his best episodes to be animated at during the Nickelodeon years (including "Space Madness", "Black Hole" and "The Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen"), in association with Big Star Productions. In June 2003, the new series began airing as part of an animation block also featuring Gary the Rat, This Just In, Stripperella, and digitally remastered episodes of the original Ren and Stimpy series, subtitled "Digitally Remastered Classics". Kricfalusi wrote the first episode, "Onward and Upward", based on requests from fans from the Nickelodeon era. The episode portrayed the characters as bisexual: In one scene, Ren informs Stimpy, "I'm the pitcher, you're the catcher."
Advertisers objected to some of the new show's content, particularly that of the risqué episode "Naked Beach Frenzy" which did not air in the show's original run, which caused trouble with scheduling. The show stopped airing when Spike's animation block was "put on hold", but it was only officially canceled around November 2004. Kricfalusi shut down his studio in Canada shortly thereafter following a lawsuit by Carbunkle filed against Spümcø in the Canadian court system. In 2005, Kricfalusi announced that all of the Adult Party Cartoon cartoons were coming to DVD, and that the possibility exists for new The Ren & Stimpy Show episodes to be produced off the back of successful sales.'

I hope that there WON'T be anymore of this mess, even on DVD sets. This was a pathetic way of bringing back Ren & Stimpy... I'm on Billy West side, it wasn't funny. It seemed forced, like it added all of the perverted junk on purpose because they were given freedom to. Pathetic. No show needs to come back like this, none.

Enough of me... what did YOU think of it? Enjoy it? Hated it? Discuss here!
