Nick announced in late fall 1992 that new Ren And Stimpys will be playing
starting on November 7, 1992 and play new ones bi-weekly. Nick is also
looking for a replacement for Ren (and probably Mr. Horse) because
According to a recent poster,
It looks like Ren And Stimpy cult fans are in for a bumpy ride. Nick has
ordered 65 (sixty-five) episodes for Season 3, which means the creativity
will go down for sure (if they don't it will be a surprise). The remaining
Season 2 shows have episodes when Ren is played by
"Out West," BTW, did make a come back unedited in February sweeps. I believe Nick wanted to save their newest song until the "HHJJ" song died down in popularity.
"The Great Outdoors" and "The Cat Who Laid The Golden Hairball" have premiered. Nick is premiering the rest of the cartoons by single airings. MTV is showing R&S at erratic times; keep an eye on your local listings.
April 24, 1993 Update: "Stimpy's Fan Club" airs, and Nick-Mania is showing eight shows of our favorite duo. Oh Joy Of Joy!
May 8, 1993: Other new shows have aired and unaired episodes have been in
limbo. They have been covered in the guide and encyclopedia.
May 23, 1993: "Kilted Yaksmen" premieres! Big hoopla about it along with gigantic flying skirted crocostimpies. :-)
Summer 1993: Due to my co-op assignment, I haven't been able to keep a month to month journal on R&S, but many things have happened. Film Threat has re-released their article on R&S in a magazine called RIP (or something similar), but details are currently sketchy. R&S Comics have been selling like hotcakes; I know of five places that sell it out consistently in my area alone! Currently, the comic book is up to #10 (I'm looking for #5); first editions are hard to find, so Marvel Comics has released the first four issues of R&S is a package re-release; other re-releases may be evident! (IMHO, I really liked the artwork in the first story of #9 because the artist captured the look, feel, and backgrounds of the show.) See the section on the comic book for more details about the R&S Comic book.
I've been reading a lot of different newsgroups about video games and animation this summer, and I have discovered something. The R&S video game on GameBoy is a cool game (according to our beloved Judex:), and there are continual posts about R&S on rec.arts.animation. So make sure you check out both! (Look for R&S references in other topics too)
Now onto the show, Ren And Stimpy. A desert of reruns has plagued the fans
of the show, but we've almost made it to the next season! Season 3 should
start August 28, but what Games Animations, the new company, will produce on
its own has yet to be seen. Rumors of a 65 shows for season 3 are still
flying and may be true; "Rocko" (as advertised on Slime Time sweepstakes)
will premiere as a new Nicktoon. Will Rocko take over R&S's spot on Sunday?
How long can trusted Cadet Stimpy and fans hold out? How long before
(BTW, see the R&S Encyclopedia for more month by month commentary)
October 1993: New shows are coming November 20, 1993!!!
December 1993: Three shows have premiered and have flopped (except NO Pants Today). :( "Untamed World 2" has been edited to death according to WCK 2's "Nick Boners" section; it may never show up uncut.
May 1994: No shows on SNICK yet.
