Preface. The Explanation Of The F.A.Q.

An F.A.Q. (from now on represented without the dots) is a way to explain the topic of discussion (Ren And Stimpy) and help newbies and veterans avoid repetitive posts about a specific sub-topic (like "What was edited out of 'Powdered Toast Man'?"). Before you post a question about R&S, you should read this document to see if your question has already been answered.

If you have corrections, additions, suggestions, comments, or hairballs, send them to Norman Sippel at with $47 million. There is no guarantee that posted items will make it to my attention. For it to work, you have to MAIL it. Thank You.

Nick Sayer will probably be happy to answer newbie questions. His electronic mail address is below in his signature.

This FAQ and the two other Ren And Stimpy documents will be posted every four weeks, thanks to the local document poster on the Internet. Thank You Mr. Jonathan Kamens for helping me out and putting up with all the questions on form and posting these documents on the net!
