  • This is disturbing in so many levels.

    1.0
    As we all know Ren and Stimpy lost it's touch by going beyond in this horrible version of the show and this episode is a fine example. You see Ren torturing a helpless frog who later refuses to kill to make him suffer, you see Ren mindlessly beat Mr. Horse with a gun and then biting off an asylum man's hand making him bleed, and to top it off you see the same frog who wants to die drag himself in putting the gun in his mouth and ultimately kills himself with the bang flag through his mouth. Really Ren and Stimpy became just became so disturbing and morally wrong that you would not finish the show without having nightmares on the exact same night. Really it's that terrible.moreless
  • This, and Stimpy's Pregnant, are my favorite Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon episodes.

    First of all, I don't know why Nick didn't accept this, because this sure would've been a classic for the original Ren and Stimpy Show (of course, with the adult content gone).



    Basically, this is what happens. Ren says something to Stimpy so bad that Stimpy completely freaks out. Yes, he's that upset. Ren does what Stimpy says and goes and finds help. So, Ren sees Dr. Mr. Horse and tells him a lot of stuff. This episode is the one that explains why Ren does what he does, and Ren tells Dr. Mr. Horse just that.



    I won't give away the ending if there's anyone who hasn't seen this. All I'll say is that you'll have to wait to see it for yourself.





    Now what I really like about this episode is that they made more emotional than the rest of the Adult Party episodes. It really does force you to want to keep watching, to find out everything. Yes, it's a powerful force.



    Final episode grade: A+moreless

    • Stimpy: You monster!! How could you say that to me?!?!? You...beast!

    • Ren: We enjoyed many a holiday together. Long lost wasteful days lazily putting things into him and waiting for them to explode.

      (Cut to Ren holding an ant and a lit fuse)
      Ant: No! No! Don't do it! Think of my wife and pupas! (Ren pushes a lit fuse into the ant)

    • (Ren is about to give the frog the final blow with a hammer)

      Frog: YES!!
      Ren: Why?
      Frog: It'll end the pain! HAVEN'T I SUFFERED ENOUGH?!
      Ren: No.
      (Ren walks away with another kid with a cigarette.)
      Ren: Hey, Skippy! Gimme that drag on that thing! (smokes cigarette) Hey, did you see Susie in that little plaid skirt in school today? OOOOhhh.
      (scene cuts back to Ren lying on the couch)
      Ren: ...and so I decided not to finish him off, for longing his sufferings seemed so much sweeter to me. So much.
      Mr. Horse: And, uh, how did you sleep that night?
      Ren: Oh, great! Great! Thank you.
      (Mr. Horse scoots back on his chair towards the right side of his desk, opens the drawer and pulls out a gun leaving it aside.)

    • Ren's Dad: Son, did you mangle this poor frog?
      Ren: (shakes his head) No.
      Ren's Dad: Look at me when I'm talking to you! (turn's Ren's head towards the frog) Is that your work?

      (Ren sticks his tongue at the frog. Ren's Dad slaps him.)
      Ren's Dad: Look what you've done to your poor mother!
      (Ren's Mom looks at the frog, and the frog smiles and waves hello to her. Ren's Mom vomits twice on the house cat from the dismantled hand of the frog.)
      Ren's Dad: Son, mangling that frog was wrong, but the deed is done now, and there's only one thing left for you to do: You have to finish him off! It's the humane way. (hands Ren a gun from his Bible) Here. Use my gun.
      (Ren picks the gun up and points it at the frog. Ren's Mom swipes it off his hands.)
      Ren's Mom: WHAT ARE YOU DOING, giving a gun to our little boy?!?
      (Ren's Mom tosses the gun aside and reaches behind the couch pulling out a chainsaw.)
      Ren's Mom: Here! Use this chainsaw.

    • Dr. Mr. Horse: Do you really want to know what's wrong with you? I'll tell you what's wrong with you. (punches Ren) YOU'RE F(honk)ING CRAZY! That's what's wrong with you!
      Ren: Crazy?
      Dr. Mr. Horse: That's right! You need to be locked up...away from decent, normal people! What kind of a lunatic are you?! You just walk up to strangers on the street and tell him, "Hey, mister! You wanna hear some sick stories about my twisted youth?!"
      Ren: (angry) But...I don't understand! I came to you for help! I beared my soul to you! I told you all my darkest secrets! And now you're telling me I'm crazy? WHAT KIND OF A PSYCHOLOGIST ARE YOU?

  • NOTES (6)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • The ear on the frog's back refers to a research project in the laboratory of the University of Massachusetts. An ear was grown on the back of a mouse.

    • Closing Card: The closing card showing Ren, Mr. Horse, and the frog inside of a multicolored loop very closely resembles the closing card of most of the classic Looney Tunes episodes. It even says "That's It Folks!", a play on the famous line, "That's All Folks!"

    • Mr. Horse: "You're F***ING CRAZY! That's what's wrong with you!"
      The line came from an episode of John K.'s other series, "The Ripping Friends."

    • none: none
      When Ren goes psycho and attacks the two dogcatchers, he looks eerily like Boo-Boo and Cindy Bear did in John K.'s infamous "Boo-Boo Goes Wild" short--especially the copious slaver and the black-rimmed lips.

    • :: :
      The frog that Ren tortures resembles the frog in an old Looney Tunes cartoon in which a man discovers a singing frog, but the frog refuses to sing in front of anyone other than him.
