Spumco’s Ren and Stimpy on DVD, Finally!

The Ren and Stimpy First and Second Season Uncut DVD Box set is now in stores! It’s well past time for a DVD version of the early Ren and Stimpy shows, and the new box set is much more than I imagined. 32 episodes, over 400 minutes of animated madness, and several episodes are presented uncut! (including the banned episode, “Man’s Best Friend”). Did i mention it’s under $30?

For those of you whippersnappers who missed Ren and Stimpy the first time around, it was a tremendously popular cult hit among all ages when it first premiered in 1991. Ren and Stimpy, with it’s oddball, grossout humor, paved the way for shows such as Spongebob Squarepants, South Park and Adult Swim. But the quality of the show went downhill after John Kricfalusi — the show’s creator — left due to creative control issues with Nickelodeon. The cable channel formed it’s own animation studio and continued to make Ren and Stimpy, with disappointing results. Hopefully, we’ll never see those episodes on DVD.

The Spumco Ren and Stimpy Archive (on Fortune City, dont slashdot it!) has the story on Spumco’s split with Nickelodeon. The Nicktoons website also has a short and fairly accurate history on the Ren and Stimpy Show.
