Another long-time fan of the original Ren & Stimpy chiming in. I grew up on this show and I still watch it to this day, and when I spotted this particular DVD at a game store, I was thrilled. Holy crap, Ren & Stimpy cartoons I've never seen?! GIMME! Needless to say, I was not impressed. The short version is that this just did not feel at all like the good old misadventures of Ren Hoek and Stimpson J. Cat that I'd known and loved for years.

The animation quality was kind of hit and miss. Yes, there are crazy, skewed facial expressions, but... it's just not the same. The original show just had a particular charm and feel to it which this one didn't have at all. It seemed like John K. was just trying to make the most disgusting possible cartoon with this collection, and while I certainly wasn't offended, there was no room for genuine humor because every other second was something stupid and/or gross. Don't get me wrong - when I think of tasteless toilet humor, I immediately think of the dog and cat duo from the 90s screaming, slapping, burping and farting their way through episodes. But the original show also had actual plots, clever jokes and segways, and little touches that were always in the perfect place to ensure maximum hilarity. Characters had depth, and while there was no chronology, everything managed to make sense while, at the same time, making no sense at all... and that's what made it so awesome. These lost episodes are devoid of all those things, and what you'll see are a completely different Ren and Stimpy that just aren't that funny anymore. Though I will give it credit for the episode "Onward & Upward" which is quite possibly the only cartoon to ever make me truly nauseous.

A couple years back, John K. attempted to resurrect Ren & Stimpy for Spike TV. And it worked, albeit pretty briefly. This collection of "Lost" episodes features six episodes where Ren & Stimpy get revamped with all the grossness, nudity, and insane antics that the show was always meant to have, and even though at times it can get to be too much for it's own good, this DVD set is a must own for those who fondly remember this gruesome twosome. In these episodes, Ren & Stimpy go to a beach filled with voluptuous young girls who like to get naked, try to help out a homeless widow (an homage to the Three Stooges), get in over their heads with an insane fire chief, and look to move out of the bum's mouth that they've been living in. Stimpy is also pregnant with Ren's love child (the results of which are hysterical, to me anyway, others may find it to be way too much), and Ren goes to a shrink to reveal the origin of his violent ways. There's interviews and introductions aplenty with John K. and a few others, which are more than worth the price of admission alone. All in all, the Lost Episodes of Ren & Stimpy will certainly be a mixed bag for many, but for those who have always wanted to see the duo in the gross out way that they were always meant to be seen, consider this a must own.

Here’s the short review: This DVD set is an abomination.

Here’s the longer review: I’m a fan of the original Ren and Stimpy, particularly the episodes where creator John Kricfalusi was involved. I bought this DVD set thinking that these episodes would be something like the once great Ren and Stimpy in its early days. I was proven wrong. It was an absolute chore to actually sit and watch these episodes. So what’s wrong with it all? Lots of things. (A few spoilers below.)

First, my one positive for the show: The animation is beautiful. It is unbelievable how good the animation is on a TV budget. It’s fantastic, and those crazy facial expressions are back. Now, onto the negative.

Why do we need to get into Ren and Stimpy’s sexuality? They are gay here. This would appear to have been done for humor. The problem is, it’s not funny. It’s actually disturbing. Who wants to see sexuality coming from cartoon animals? When Ren and Stimpy are gay, it’s uncomfortable to watch. And in “Naked Beach Frenzy,” when we get to see Ren getting excited by the hot girls at the beach, it’s just as uncomfortable to watch. Stimpy getting pregnant and developing female breasts? Stimpy French Kissing a duck? This stuff doesn’t provide humor. It’s rather a bunch of lame jokes designed to make this show more adult, and yet more stupid.

Why is this series so mean-spirited? Sure, Ren was always a jerk. But it was funny in the old series. Here, it’s taken to a whole new level. Ren is not likeable at all here. In “Ren Seeks Help,” those flashbacks to Ren’s childhood are not funny. They’re just psychotic and painful to watch. Mean comedy can be funny, but it’s all about balance. Here’s it’s all mean. How can you root for someone you don’t like?

Love Ren & Stimpy but I don't dare let my grandson see this particular release. It's a bit raw for a six year old. But I love it and he can watch when he gets to be 18. I paid ~$7 in 2011 and I can't tell you why it's $21 today. Maybe legal issues but I don't know. All in all it's a great collector's item and collectibles usually only go up over time. Most of these were banned from TV but today they would be ok late at night.
