As with previous R&S DVD sets, the supplemental features are somewhat spare--Kricfalusi and members of Spumco and Games contribute commentaries, and there's a featurette on the show--and the episodes are indeed the edited versions, but the comments by the show's creative team are both entertaining and informative. And no matter what your opinion of these final episodes (before the show's revival as an Adult Party Cartoon on Spike TV), there's still plenty of stinky laughs to be had. --Paul Gaita
- Includes the second half of Season 4 and all of Season 5
- 13 Audio commentaries from both the Spumco and Games animation teams
- Featurette: Ren & Stimpy on Ren & Stimpy

Games' second half of R&S's history was pretty much non-desireable episodes made just to keep the Nick execs happy. Not only that, its popularity was already plummeted to a mininum so small that it felt like the cat and dog duo were already forgotten. Hardcore fans would rather enjoy those early days with creator John Kricfalusi at the helm, but to them the Games history was an awful chore to watch.
However, John K. would recieve a glorious offer in 2002 by SpikeTV to come back at the helm of Ren and Stimpy with no argument or censorship whatsoever. So in 2003, new episodes were aired especially for those adult fans of the show. In fact, the words Adult Party Cartoon were added at the title screen; the original show wasn't designed for kids in the first place, so why do they even bother?
Unfortunately, only three of the nine half-hour episodes aired; the last six were pushed back on a Summer 2004 date, but never aired due to complaints on extremely risque content in one of the episodes by advertising companies, and eventually the show vanished.
History had repeated itself during Spike's history, and John K. is already fed up with TV. Then, he looked at other shows's histories-most notably from Family Guy's history-into how they recieve fans on TV and a hell of a lot more fans just by selling seasonal/chronological DVD sets and is convinced that DVD has no disregard nor restriction whatsoever.

Ren & Stimpy Seasons Five and Some More Of Four, is a look at their final days during their Nickelodeon era. The cartoons are very, very funny, and have been remastered brilliantly. There are just so many great cartoons episodes like Superstitious Stimpy, where Ren tries getting over being jinxed over being placed under a cursed day, Space Dogged that spotlights what would ever happen if Ren & Stimpy were alive and going through a 1960's Soviet Union comsonaut program and space race, and Pen Pals showcasing Ren & Stimpy wanting to enter a maximum security prison to live in, after Ren's home is taken away by the law. While the episodes are funny and enjoyable, there really is one small disadvantage. Like the two previous DVD collections, there are some cuts to the original versions aired. Thankfully however, there aren't as many as there were in the previous editions, which is a real joy.
While it is still a shame people don't appreciate innovative animation as much as it was made years ago, Ren & Stimpy have had a cult following that has withstood the test of time. This is a must have for anybody who is new to Ren & Stimpy, and a casual favorite for die hard Ren & Stimpy fans. Oh, Joy!

of ALL Nickelodeon shows that got adult Attintion ,This is the BEST show among Spongebob Squarepants And Rocko's modern life .
Secondly, in my opinion, seasons 4 and 5 are MUCH funnier (for the most part) than season 3 (and a halfish). Maybe someone can explain this to me, but the episodes had dramatically and magically improved since season 3, several as funny or funnier than even episodes from season 1.
(Parenthetically, I must comment on some of the audio, which is warped during some episodes [only on disc 1, namely: 'Aloha Hoek,' 'Cheese Rush Days,' and 'Wiener Barons'], especially noticeable when music is playing. Some people might easily overlook this if they're not sensitive to that sort of thing, but it was slightly annoying to me. But out of 33 episodes, three of them with slight audio warping isn't that big of a deal.)
I would recommend this set more than I'd recommend season 3 in terms of humor and quality - but, of course, being a Ren & Stimpy fan, I recommend ALL the sets especially for you Ren & Stimpy fans and completists out there.

I watched this show in high school. It's so bizarre, and I love every disc.Published 3 months ago by avalynda
These are the episodes after the original team was canned by the network. They can be fun and there are milestones in them but they lack the bite of the first season.Published 6 months ago by MJ
