  • John pushes the edge early on...

    In "Onward and Upward," the first of the Adult Party Cartoon episodes, Ren and Stimpy's new character development has the duo being a gay couple living in a homeless guy's mouth.

    In an interview, creator John Kricfalusi stated that Ren was actually bisexual -- he would rather have a human woman, but since he can't, Stimpy's easy. Stimpy is noted as being madly in love with Ren.

    The duo move out of the homeless guy's mouth, and onto more sophisticated ground...which, for them is a spittoon in a bar.

    Here, John Kricfalusi shows us an example of how the new series will NOT be like the original "children's" cartoon, and how it will be more pushing the edge.

    This hilariously sick and twisted episode is pure Kricfalusi. A mighty fine introduction to the hilarious new series.

    The "You're the pitcher, I'm the catcher" scene was hilarious. The gross-out stuff really kills me.

    I completely disagree with the other critic. This episode is great!
