Episode Summary

Big House Blues (Original Version)
We learn how Ren and Stimpy are poor and live in the city streets with no food or shelter. Suddenly a dog catcher comes along and takes them to the pound. All looks good, until their newfound friend Phil is "put to sleep." Ren thinks it's only a nap, and falls asleep and dreams he's dating a woman, but winds up kissing Stimpy, waking up to the horrible truth (and then he washes himself in the toilet). Ren hears from another dog, Jasper, that Phil was put to "the big sleep!" Ren freaks out and starts crying, knowing he and Stimpy are doomed. Later, Stimpy coughs up hairballs on Ren, and then a little girl mistakens Ren for a poodle. She adopts him, and then Ren talks the girl into adopting Stimpy. They are happy in their new home, especially Stimpy with his new litterbox.moreless
