In the 1990s animation boom, The Ren & Stimpy Show stood supreme. Through draftsmanship, charismatic voices, irreverent sight gags, crass humor, and stellar character acting, animation’s most talented and disturbed artists created an entity for the Nickelodeon cable network that pulled the art form out of a 25-year rut. The world has never been quite the same since — and we’re eternally grateful!
Now you too can join the rollercoaster ride that is the fascinating, insane real-life story of art, money, and ego that gave birth to Ren Höek and Stimpson J. Cat. History Eraser Buttons need not apply. No stone has been unturned, no magic nose goblin unpicked, in this extensively detailed history of the show that defined a generation and changed an entire medium.
It’s everything you wanted to know about Ren & Stimpy — but were afraid to ask!
“A compelling cautionary tale of rags-to-riches success in Hollywood, Thad Komorowski’s book documents the entire story behind Nickelodeon’s first cartoon hit, The Ren & Stimpy Show, utilizing extensive interviews with the program’s key players — including the cartoonists, network executives, and voice actors — justifying the show's important role in the recent history of animation. A great read.”
— Jerry Beck, Animation Historian and Co-Founder of Cartoon Brew
