Nickelodeon’s “The Ren & Stimpy Show” was the pinnacle of many of our youths, bringing adult-themed hysterical gross-out humor to children that probably shouldn’t have been watching.
Now, almost 30 years later, Comedy Central is resurrecting the series as part of a major push into adult animation, reports Deadline.
The series, boasting with puss, boogers, and many, many butts, even pre-dates and set the stage for the success of MTV’s “Beavis and Butt-Head”, which is also getting a reboot at Comedy Central from Mike Judge.

The series, created by John Kricfalusi, followed the adventures of title characters Ren, an emotionally unstable Chihuahua, and Stimpy, a good-natured yet dimwitted cat. It aired for five seasons on Nickelodeon, ending in December 1995. The following year, the series had a run on MTV.
“Happy Happy Joy Joy”, a documentary on “The Ren & Stimpy Show”, co-directed by Ron Cicero and Kimo Easterwood, premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, adds the site.
