TV.com interviews John Kricfalusi

In the 1980s, the cartoon landscape was a boring mess, with toy knockoffs ruling the airwaves. Then, animator John Kricfalusi introduced the world to his surreal, satirical characters Ren Hoek, a bitter asthma-hound chihauhua who sounds like Peter Lorre, and Stimpson J. Cat, a fat, dumb feline who receives the brunt of Ren's wrath.

When Ren & Stimpy appeared on Nickelodeon, it was an instant smash. The series was ported over to MTV, where it became even more popular. Now, a brand-new DVD of unseen R&S episodes is being released, and you can check out some clips at John's blog. TV.com caught up with John K and chatted with him about corporate fear and the hundreds of R&S episodes you haven't seen. Happy happy joy joy!

TV.com Thanks for taking some time to answer a few questions.

John K Sure.

Desperate Housewives

The Complete First Season

Desperate Housewives, ABC's surprise breakout hit, has arrived on DVD just in time for fans to brush up before the premiere of the second season. Bask in Wisteria Lane's devilishly delightful blend of satire, drama, and mystery--from the gunshot that started it all to the tense cliff-hanger of the season finale.

Six of the 23 episodes on this gorgeously packaged set can be viewed in an "unrated, extended" format with clarifying introductions from series creator Marc Cherry. Also included are deleted scenes for seven other episodes, audio commentaries from Cherry and the Emmy-nominated Desperate Housewives cast, a blooper reel, five fascinating featurettes, and The New Neighbor, a special segment in which Oprah Winfrey arrives on Wisteria Lane.

A box full of dirty laundry has never been this much fun. Enjoy ...

Revelations

The end is here, and the faithful may rejoice! Revelations, the six-hour epic miniseries that aired on NBC earlier this spring, has arrived on DVD.

The ritual murder of an innocent child starts the Revelations story by kicking off a chain of events that mirror those prophesied in the Bible's book of Revelation. As it becomes increasingly apparent that these are, indeed, the "End of Days," the child's father, a rational-minded astrophysicist (Bill Pullman), must partner with a devout nun (Natascha McElhone) in the ultimate battle between good and evil.

This groundbreaking television event fills two discs with mayhem, mystery, and miracles, along with special onscreen interviews with the cast and writer/producer David Seltzer.

The show follows two characters - Ren, a crazy Chihuahua - and - Stimpy, an incredibly stupid cat - as they think up to all kinds of hair brained schemes and get themselves into some sticky situations. Creator John Kricfalusi (John K.) first pictured them as separate characters. Back then, Kricfalusi worked for Filmation and always yearned to bring back the style and energy of the classic Warner Bros. Bob Clampett cartoons of the golden age. So his best entertainment was making his own characters and casting them in his own imaginary stories for the benefit of his equally tired co-workers. In the late 80s, Kricfalusi started to break the barrier for animation with 'remakes' of Mighty Mouse and Beany & Cecil. But this was just the beginning. John K. brought back his doodles of the wily Chihuahua and the idiotic cat to star in their own cartoon. Finally in 1989, he, Jim Smith and Bob Camp came together to create 'Big House Blues' the first cartoon to star his creations, Ren and Stimpy. In 1990, Viacom's kids' network, Nickelodeon got hold of the film and asked Kricfalusi and his crew to make an entire series of Ren and Stimpy shorts and from that moment on, Spümcø was formed. The Ren and Stimpy Show debuted in August 1991 with a two-part episode, 'Stimpy's Big Day / The Big Shot' and became an instant hit. It was the third Nicktoon ever to be aired on the Network alongside Doug and Rugrats. Nick execs quickly sought argument over certain scenes in the shorts and Spümcø fought back. Spümcø introduced a new character come second season, Ren and Stimpy's master, George Liquor. Nick hated George, because they thought he was too mean and his last name sounded too much like 'lick her'. But the real reason why George never made it was because he was simply too 'adult' by Nick's standards. Due to controversial setbacks and numerous edits, Nick finally fired Spümcø and got hold of Ren and Stimpy, therefore taking John K.'s creations away from him. Nick then lured away two of John K.'s best friends and co-workers Bob Camp and Billy West and created Games Animation to 'take care' of Ren and Stimpy. On December 16 1995, Nick aired the last episode produced by Games, 'A Scooter for Yaksmas' and finally cancelled the show after a 5 season run.
