    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (7)

      • (Ren sits down at a table with a knife and fork in hand)
        Ren: What are we having?
        Stimpy: Space cabbage.
        Ren: Is it stinky?
        Stimpy: Just how you like it.

      • Stimpy: So, uh...let's scout around.
        Ren: You fool! We can't just wander around like eediots! We'd better see what the prime directive says about alien worlds.
        Stimpy: (flips through the space cadet handbook) The prime directive! It says to 'scout around.'
        Ren: Great! Let's go.

      • Ren: Stimpy, sometimes your wealth of ignorance astounds me.
        Stimpy: Ahhh, they don't call me stupid for nothing!

      • Marlin Hoek: (about the Crocostimpy very quietly) If we listen carefully, we might just get a glimse of the haunting mating call of this majestic beast. Listen, you eediot!
        Crocostimpy: HAPPY! HAPPY! JOY! JOY!
        (later, a bus picks up the calling Crocostimpy, and the 'Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy! continues inside the bus)

      • Marlin Hoek: (talking about the frilled Ren) Watch it as it extends and inflates it's neck sack. It does this to attract...nature show hosts!
        (Nature show hosts start swarming around the reptile to get pictures of it)

      • Commander Hoek: We're marooned!
        Cadet Stimpy: Just like the title of this cartoon!

      • (Ren & Stimpy are camped out in a tent on a weird planet. A knock is heard)
        Commander Hoek: Hey, Stimpy, go answer de flap.

    • NOTES (4)

      • The title card for Untamed World is 'A Cartoon'.

      • The gigantic 'brainiac' aliens were designed by John K. after a rare children's game called Captain Quatem which was supposed to teach kids the dangers of drugs.

      • The plot outline of 'Untamed World' is actually reused from the remake series of Bob Clampett's Beany and Cecil by John K., Jim Smith, and Lynne Naylor for ABC.

      • There was an edit in 'Untamed World'. The whole Crocostimpy bus scene never actually made any sense since Nick cut most of it out. In the original storyboard, the Crocostimpy was supposed to say "What's The Big Sleep, Ren?" and hop onto the bus, while a bunch of female Crocostimpies were going to chase after the bus yelling "He's dead, you idoit! Don't you know what dead is?" The quotes were references to the first Ren and Stimpy cartoon, 'Big House Blues'.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • The sound effect when the seagull first dives down to nab a Soft-Shelled Stimpy turtle, he makes the same jet sound effect as Rocky the Flying Squirrel did on Rocky and His Friends (and later titles The Bullwinkle Show).

      • 'Untamed World' is a parody of Wild Kingdom, hosted by Marlon Perkins.
