Ren and Stimpy is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon. The series follows the misadventures of Ren Höek, a neurotic chihuahua, and Stimpy J. Cat, a good-natured but dimwitted cat. Ren and Stimpy was one of the most popular and controversial cartoons of the 1990s. The show was known for its gross-out humor, its bizarre and surreal imagery, and its often subversive take on children's programming. Ren and Stimpy is still a popular show today, and it has been praised by critics for its humor, its creativity, and its subversiveness. A fanart The Ren & Stimpy Show cursor with Ren and Stimpy.
