Yes it is. This "adult" version is so fucked up, what has Ren become?! He is an even bigger psychopath than he was in the original. The original is awesome, this sucks. Spike TV, rot in hell forever for ruining Ren and Stimpy. Thank god this version was cancelled in 2003.
Ren and Stimpy was an amazing cartoon on Nickelodeon. It was fun to see just how much dirty or creepy stuff they could sneak past the censors. All of the magic John K brought to the original gets kicked out the door in APC. It's fun to see what John K can do with the two, but it's not as NEARLY as good as the original. Billy West also doesn't voice the two. Which also makes APC lose a little magic. But it's not TERRIBLE. In its only season it had a few good episodes and a few bad. The only way I would recommend APC is if you want to see the two get into more Adult situations. (Duh) But other than that, I'd just go turn on the original Ren and Stimpy.
I can understand Spike TV being the first network for men, but Ren and Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" is so ungodly, that even the ORIGINAL MADE MORE SENSE THAN THIS!!!!!! Don't get me wrong, I love the old Ren and Stimpy show. That show was funny, and even if there are times when it doesn't get funny, I've seen stuff more boring and/or ungodly than the original. I was so shocked to know that John Kricfalusi was fired from Nickelodeon due to that "Man's Best Friend" episode, which results in having Ren & Stimpy go on for 3 more seasons without John involvement, but even those were better than this. The only thing that might possibly worse than reviving Ren and Stimpy as an adult party cartoon would be to revive Rocko's Modern Life as an Adult Party Cartoon. But still, overall, I HATE THE NEW REN AND STIMPY SHOW!!!!!! THIS IS BEYOND ANY DOUBT THE WORST OF THE SPIKE TV ADULT CARTOONS!!!!!!!
Well.... saw one episode of this. I had never seen Ren and stimpy before and I saw the episode "Ren Seeks My teenage daughter likes watching horror movies with me and we were both curious, so we tracked it down and started watching it. About 8 minutes in my daughter was begging me to turn it off. I wasn't keen to continue watching, either. In fact I kinda... so yeah....
This is a showcase of everything that can go wrong in a cartoon. Animal abuse, excessive (sometimes sexual) grossout, pandering to stereotypes of audiences, more abuse, bad animation and music, costant padding and very slow pacing, very bad writing, the worst Flanderization I've ever seen, raping the orignal show, extremely disturbing know this is supposed to be for adults, but that doesn't really make an excuse. This is the worst show that ever existed.
Spike TV ruined one of my all-time favorite cartoon shows. Ok so, the show is a lot more disgusting and perverted than before. Yes it was pretty disgusting and preverted before, but now it's not even funny, it's just completely distrubing. I mean "Naked Beach Frenzy" was cartoon pornography at it's basic level. And then Stimpy getting pregnant... ugghh. The only reason I give a 2.5 is because of "Man's Best Friend" which was great, but everything else about this show has left clueless as to how John K. could allow such destruction at the basic level of his own greatest cartoon. 2.5/10 F
Man I remember when this show first came out I was thinking that I might like this show, I mean heck I loved The Ren and Stimpy show. That show was awesome, but this show, however, was a disappointment. First of all John K just made this show to get revenge for Nickelodeon for firing him after the second season, so they just slapped in just about every adult content that they couldn't use in the original because Nickelodeon wouldn't allow it. But there's one thing they didn't use and that is MORE humor. Yes this show uses more Adult content and less humor. I mean Ren and Stimpy was good because of it's humor and they didn't even use it in this show. It's a good thing this show got cancelled before making anymore episodes because if you ask me, Ren and Stimpy was better off when it was on Nickelodeon and not Spike TV.
Ren & Stimpy is a succesful nicktoon on Nickelodeon from 1991-1996. Jonk K. was the head creator until he got fired and Games owned the rest of the series due to Man's Best Friend. Damn you Games & Nickelodeon!
But there is 1 show that spun-off this show... the Adult-Party Cartoon! Hell yeah! Spread the word! This is what Nickelodeon doesn't want to air. SpikeTV agreed when SpikeTV was known as... um... TNN. The Netowrk for Men. They also aired those episode that were in the works during the Nickelodeon era. Including "Ren Seeks Help," an adult party remake to Nickelodeon/Games' Ren & Stimpy episode, "Ren Needs Help."
It lasted 2003-2004, but was cancelled due to... NAKED... BEACH... FRENZY. LOL! I talk slow. That's right. Naked Beach Frenzy was the last episode, and was never aired, which is why John K.'s company was shut down! Not a smart move, John-boy. But, he also an animation critic. Y'all know what I'm sayin'?
Overall: This is TV-14 & TV-MA. Otherwise, not bad. Good show, but I'm sad that Spumco is shut down. SPUMCO? Ah, who am I kidding?
This is such a tragic way to end Ren & Stimpy....the jokes consistantly fail to be funny...the animation though more detailed looks more crude, Poor replacement for Billy West for Stimpy and John K can't even do the voice of Ren anymore.....Only reason to watch this show ever is because of the banned episode of the original 'Man's Best Friend'.....and as good as that was it hardly makes this show worth while!
This show has alot of talent. Even though it wasn't Spumco, the show was just as good as Ren and Stimpy (Only the first two seasons). I hope they show itt again I don't care what channel. I don't understand why people think it's desgusting. It's not horrible. At least it's not as bad as Hey Arnold.
This version of Ren and Stimpy has left me clueless, it's so wrong and kind of disgusting, that it might have ruined a bit of my childhood for this show. I have only seen a few episodes,(not planning to see more). When I saw the "Naked Beach Frenzy" episode it ruined me in a way cause it was pornographic with naked cartoon girls and when I saw Stimpy's Pregnant, the ending was very gross and made me think Ren and Stimpy are actually gay It's not hard to believe they cancelled this show after Naked Beach Frenzy aired. I would say that this version may have ruined my childhood a bit, but honestly, at some parts on some episodes you have to laugh, that's a reason why I gave it a 4.5. It's very difficult for me to explain how I feel about this show to be honest. Final Grade: D-
Another spin-off to a great show that got cancelled from Nickelodean ever since they were new to this hip-hop fad called "CRACK". Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon was a spin-off to the original series "Ren and Stimpy" only this time, it was rated 14 and Mature audience. It was suppose to be a EXTREME version of Ren and Stimpy. I remeber watching a few episodes and i didn't really like this show. It was nothing good to the original series. This show got cancelled after the unaired episode called "NAKED BEACH FRENZY". I watched it on youtube and it was WTF. It was the s******** thing i've seen. No wonder why it got cancelled. Overall, this show was BBBBAAAAAADDD.
Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon is Ren and Stimpy for adults the title of it easily gives you a clue at least give this show a try it can be very good like the episode Ren Seeks Help it was a good episode in my opinion but this show is'nt for kids don't let your kids watch it though i have never seen it only a few clips though Ren Hoek's voice was no different than in the original get your facts straight people though i have never heard Eric Bauza's version of Stimpy.Great for adults but bad for kids.
It is sick, disturbing and perverted, but still amazing. Ren and Stimpy have come a long way from their days on Nickelodeon. If you are not into adult humor then I would fully recommend that you stay away from this series. If you are sick, disturbed and perverted, then you have found your cartoon source. These episodes are not, and I repeat not!!, recommend for children. These episodes have the cast swearing and women’s nipples are flying around everywhere! I’ve said it before and I will say it again, this is not for children at all! The episodes themselves are joke after joke, leaving little for story and more about fitting as many jokes in as possible, John K. even admitted to doing this. Even with that said, this series is still funny! Even though it is all mostly adult humor, it is still very funny. But do not come into watching this series expecting it to be like the first series, because it is completely different.
This show is great! I do think, however, that tey could use some of the old humor from the original show. However, the new sexual jokes and such are Great! I don\'t understand why you conservative **** can't see that...you pass it off as \"childish\" and \"disgusting\" just because it doesn\'t fit you\'re little world where \"different\" necessarely means worse.
Ren & Stimpy: Adult Pary Cartoon isn\'t your beloved Nickolodean(how the hell do you spell that) show. It was a new beast and overlooked by some. This show is more along the lines of Drawn Together or South Park and is NOT intended for Children. I only cout one Episode when it aired on TNN (now retitled Spike TV) that Episode was Ren Seeks Help, and let me tell you i don\'t think i have ever laughed so hard in my life! it was very Demented and Dark, and it showed you How Ren became the way he is. Now some people give this show a 1 or 2 wich i can see why, but i found this gem to be better than The Ren & Stimpy Show. It\'s more along my lines of comedy, and is now a one of my Sick and Twisted favorites. It\'s a good thing they put this on DVD because now you can see all the Episodes that never aired. Spike was stupid for ending this TV show so soon, and poorly promoteing it. It think we would have seen Season 2 if it would of found it\'s audience, but what can we do? atleast we got the DVDs witch i have almost warm out the backs of. LOL. To sum it up, give it a try. P.S. My spelling and Grammer sucks so Sorry. P.P.S. Theres Animated Nudity too in this show, so don\'t go poping in the DVD when your Mom is in the room.
Not worth watching at all. Thought it would be funny. It was good for people who wanted to see a more adult version of this show. But ill stick to Ye Old watching it on Nick. It was okay though. Read on.......
If you really want to watch this show be my guest but in my point of view this show is stupid and funny. Not the good type of stupid too. I say that because it is childish and not that imaginative. I’ve been a fan for years and was disappointed to see how low they sank.
But on the plus side it is funny. It has the same dog and cat going around the city causing chaos to random people ha-ha laugh out loud vibe. Oh there is a twist now is more adult. Like cursing and showing many things no one in their right mind would want to see like guts and cursing.
Kuun has given this show a yucky three out of five.
I was a bit nervous at first when I read all the bad reviews about the first episode. But I was glad the first episode of the series I saw was "Ren Seeks Help." But now I shall get on with my review...
This show is AN INSTANT CLASSIC!!! You heard me! The first, plotless episode "Onward and Upward" was a bumpy start, but "Ren Seeks Help" happily returned to what I like to see in Ren and Stimpy. I can't wait for the Lost Episode DVD to come out soon!
It's great to hear John K. as Ren again! It doesn't sound right at times but that might be because they didn't speed it up like they did on the old episodes. Eric Bauza's Stimpy sounds pretty decent at some points; it sounds perfect on "Ren Seeks Help." We also have Harris Peet and Cheryl Chase back, as well as some new voice actors like John K.'s dad! The original KPM/Associated Production Music tunes are there, of course, and it is chock full of all the old classic Hanna-Barbera sound effects, including some that date deep into the 50s and 60s! The animation seems like a cross between classic Spumco and Games Animation style, but the characters look at bit decent at times.
Plus, for the first time I've known, Spumco started censoring their own cartoons by themselves. They added a loud "HONK" to most times the F-word is said instead of the usual bleep (yes, they use profanity in this show!), and they were fortunate to air on Spike TV, so they could show R-rated-type stuff in it. You'll probably have to wait till you're 17 to see this cartoon, but it's still good nonetheless. Try skipping "Onward and Upward" and go right to "Ren Seeks Help." You'll see what a great cartoon series this is!
Ren and Stimpy was a classic cartoon that used to contain, although in between numerous gross out jokes, a certain level of intelligence. The early show was a violent stab at the lack of quality and fun in cartoons of the eighties and early nineties, and is one of the more memorable cartoons of my childhood. I was warped to no end by Ren's psychosis, and can't get the ending of "Stimpy's Fan Club" out of my mind to this day. "Stimpy's Invention" is without a doubt one of the finest ten minutes in animation I've seen.
When I first heard that John K. was returning to the series, I was very excited. He was after all, the creator of this madness. However, upon seeing just the first episode of his new Ren and Stimpy series, I was both surprised and disgusted. Everything that was fun and original about this show had been degraded to one long and unfunny gay joke.
People may, and will say, that there have always been elements of a homosexual undertone to the original series, so who cares? That's just it... it was an undertone. It was one undertone among many undertones. There were also serious references to mental instability, murder, and even Nazi-ism in one episode. There were things you would have to think about. It wasn't something shoved into your face for 20 straight minutes. It was funny because it was under the surface. It was also funny because it was on a children's network. It was funny because there were limits on a children's network. It was funny to see what they could get away with and slip past the censors.
Well now, the censors are gone, and the creativity is missing as well. In an adult setting, the writers were free to do whatever they pleased, which is actually what hurt them. Don't misunderstand me. I am not pro-censorship by any stretch of the imagination. I am however, pro-creativity. This show has none of it.
Sometimes it is not what is said or shown that makes something effective, but rather the opposite. The old phrase "Less is more" comes to mind. Consider popular horror films. The original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" has little to no blood or gore at all, yet it is still today considered one of the scariest films ever made. Barely a drop of blood is shown! What's more amusing is that everyone remembers it as being a gory film. That's because the director was smart. He merely implied the violence. Similar tactics were used in the original Halloween, Psycho, and The Shining. How many people are killed in The Shining? You might be surprised at the actual body count the next time you watch it.
My point is that implying things, as opposed to hammering them into the audience's head, generally works more effectively. The writer's had a better understanding of this in the early days of the series, and their efforts were made more impressive due to the restrictions that were placed upon them. Had this new series maintained some of those limits, we might have had something to chuckle about when jokes flew over people's heads as opposed to sitting through 30 seconds of "I'm the pitcher, you're the catcher." Give me a break.
While many may not like the "Adult Party Cartoon," I really enjoyed the four episodes that have aired, and the three unaired episodes.
The "Adult Party Cartoon" series has often been compared to "South Park." While neither show contains clever political or social satire, John Kricfalusi's update of his classic cartoon series (which originally aired on a kids' network) is actually FUNNY compared to more recent episodes of "South Park."
In any event, there is a chance you may like this show, and there's a chance you may not. But, please remember: these episodes are BRILLIANT compared to the utter dreck Nickelodeon started producing after they fired John Kricfalusi from his own series (which includes the ill-fated "Games" episodes of The Ren & Stimpy Show).
Check it out if you like twisted humor. But don't expect smart, involving television. "Ren & Stimpy" is funny, but yes, it is very stupid (but we love it anyway, don't we?)
What Where The Creators thinking..? They have ruined the Ren and Stimpy name with this god-awful crap. The Classic is 100x better because there was actually some thought put behind it..the only thing i actually did enjoy watching was the lost episode Man's Best Friend...so do urself a favor and watch the Classic instead!
The original Ren and Stimpy was brilliant what the hell is up with the Adult Cartoon Party?!?!? it really blows BIG TIME i want this show to stay cancelled but i want them to bring back the original Ren And Stimpy. Well Adult Cartoon Party acctually aired Man's Best Frined so that's one good thing but other than that this show sucks! Bring back the original!
I loved the original episodes of Ren & Stimpy, before Nickelodeon started producing it themselves and overkilled on the gross-out gags and character traits. The season premiere of Adult Party Cartoon, "Onward and Upward", put a lot of people off. That's ironic, because Spumco wrote this episode as per viewer requests to do a whole episode of gross-out gags. Most fans (the ones that didn't have trouble getting over the fact that Ren & Stimpy are portrayed as gay in some of the cartoons, that is) generally agree that the series, which premiered with Onward and Upward, took a short while to find its legs, but the next episode to air, Ren Seeks Help, was a true classic "psychodrama" (and has been my favorite of the new run). After that came Fire Dogs 2, which starred America's self-confessed greatest cartoonist, Ralph Bakshi.
After it aired - nothing. New episodes of the classic comedy duo vanished from the airwaves, just as they'd done a decade before. Spike TV made bungled promises that the next cartoon, Naked Beach Frenzy would air in the Summer of 2004, but cancelled it at the last minute due to complaints from advertisers about the shows' content (to quote John Kricfalusi, "I guess most people don't like naked girls"). Yup, R&S was being censored in the overly prudish USA yet again - this time, ridiculously enough, in an adult time slot on a channel aimed at men, not children.
Luckily, I've seen the remaining three episodes after being given copies by the shows' creator, John Kricfalusi (I'm a fan who's working on a small level on the R&S Ultimate DVD set). "Naked Beach Frenzy" is fun, but the last two, "Altruists" and "Stimpy's Pregnant" are the best cartoons I've seen in years.
The quality of the animation is astounding and after a very slightly shaky start, Ren and Stimpy are back to their good old selves. The unaired episodes will be part of the upcoming DVD, "Ren & Stimpy: The Lost Episodes", and hopefully after that, John K's plans to do direct-to-DVD sequels will take off.
If you were put off by "Onward and Upward", please give the show a second look. It was unfortunate that the weakest episode aired first.
