This encyclopedia doesn't take the place of the Ren And Stimpy guide and FAQ; on the contrary, it should work with these documents. This encyclopedia puts all the shows in perspective with bumpers and cartoons. A bumper is a short commercial spoof or a short piece. All times are Eastern U.S.A. times unless specified.

This document is a depository for miscellaneous facts about Ren And Stimpy and its showings. Anything not covered by the FAQ or Not-So-Official-Guide is covered here--if not, E-mail and request it from me.
