    A Scooter for Yaksmas is surely the most weird episode ever of Ren & Stimpy. What the idea for changed Christmas to Yaksmas? It's only overatted, stupid and out of the early Ren & Stimpy glorious episodes with a original humor Now, that's just good for crap. And thanks a lot that considered like the last episode
  • I'm surprised what I saw. I will admit though, for a Christmas related episode it's very original.

    7.0
    I'm a huge Ren and Stimpy fan and this episode didn’t' have much quality. The song was fantastic, but the fixed animation and repeated activities got me down. I know Ren and Stimpy can do better than this, but I believe they can. Overall since this is a Christmas type episode and it is very original I guess it's not too, too bad after all.
  • Ren and Stimpy celebrates Yaksmas. Yaksmas?!

    This episode was cliche, overdone, and even insulting. Absolute bust. I enjoy scooters, I really do, but this episode that had scooters absolutely sucked. This plot of the not geeting the scooter been heard of before. Also, the writers are runing what used to be a joy by overdoing the songs, YET AGAIN. You know the song that I'm talking about. My biggest problem though, was the unhidden remark against parodlies of propular holidays. Wow. That just totaly got me angry. This isn't a show for nobodys, it for well somebodys, and now we're putting parodlies of propular holidays into it? Thanks for insulting all your conservative viewers with that crap whoever wrote that episode. Also there was a plot confusment. Stimpy goes to Stinky Wizletets to set things right while riding a stolen scooter. I still didn't get that. I also didn't get the interveiw part. The episode was confussing from start to finish. The only thing that I seemed impressed with was the idea of sasages and pre-chwed gum. I love those food. This episode should have never been done. Period. If this is what the show has become, it's finally completed it's jump over the shark. As if it hadn't already been heading there as it was. No more holiday parodlies!



    FINAL GRADE: Fmoreless
  • This episode is about out a cat that celebrates yaksmas but takes a scooter and gives it to stinky wisallteats and gets happy again.

    It is Yaksmas Eve, and Stimpy is in the holiday spirit, despite a moribund job at the CobbCo popsicle-stick factory and the abuse he receives from the local children. He is especially excited with the anticipation of his very own Johnny Future's scooter, and to make sure Ren doesn't forget he plants reminders wherever he can.



    Ren himself is more cynical, and reprimands Stimpy for still believing in Stinky Whizzleteats (the Yaksmas equivalent of Santa Claus). He reluctantly goes along with Stimpy's ludicrous preparations, and the two head off to bed.



    That evening both Stinky and his trusty Yak do indeed show up, to a musical montage no less, and in the morning Stimpy is ecstatic. However, his mood sours when the two exchange gifts. While Ren is delighted at his present ('A jewel-encrusted Queen of England! How did you ever know?'), Stimpy fumes upon receiving yet another popsicle stick and leaves the house for some air.



    He makes it all the way to the store where the scooter remains unbought before he loses his composure. During his tantrum, he accidentally breaks the store window and finds the scooter in his hands. When a passerby accuses him of theft he panics and drives off on the scooter. On the run, Stimpy is overwhelmed by guilt and, fearing prison, he returns home to seek help from Ren. He gets back to find Ren revelling in the media attention, and in no hurry to come to his defence. Feeling betrayed, Stimpy heads off to find Stinky Whizzleteats, believing him to be the only one capable of setting things right.



    With the police hot on his tail, Stimpy rides his ill-attained scooter to the West Pole, accidentally running down an oaf on the way. The two strike up a partnership, although it comes to an abrupt end when the oaf recognises Stimpy as a thief from the newspaper.



    At a Yaksmas soiree, Ren, Muddy Mudskipper and his simian wife find themselves missing Stimpy.



    Even more aghast, Stimpy continues his voyage until he wipes out. He comes to outside the West Pole motel, and enters to find both Stinky Whizzleteats and his Yak unconscious - as well as a gift-wrapped scooter from Ren that Stinky never delivered. Elated that Ren remembered his gift after all, Stimpy takes the new scooter and leaves the stolen, totaled one in Stinky's room to be fixed. Once Stimpy heads off home, though, the police arrive at the motel and arrest Stinky, confusing him with Stimpy.



    The following day, Ren and Stimpy take a holiday ride together, while Stinky and the Yak are on the lam. i give it a perfect score.moreless
