Episode Summary

Monkey See, Monkey Don't / Fake Dad
Monkey See, Monkey Don't:
Ren and Stimpy want to have it made (they want people to feed them), so they dress up in cheesy monkey suits and are hired by the zookeeper. They share the monkey cage with Filthy, a big primate that is more popular than the duo.

Fake Dad:
Ren is a member of the Fake Dad company, where you spend a weekend with an orphaned kid and you act as his father. However, Ren and Stimpy's 'child' is actually a big middle-aged prisoner named Kowalski! He keeps torturing Ren, while Stimpy thinks he's nice.moreless

    This episode began R&S's long jump over the shark. Why? Let me tell you, and there will be no questions asked.

    Monkey See, Monkey Don't: Wanna Know why R&S jumped the shark? Watch this episode. This was the first episode done entirly by Games. And the episode is a big example of Games' stupidy and homosexuality. I liked R&S episodes before this. I grew up with them, there're my favorite episodes but this episdoe runins everything about R&S! I can't believe Bob Camp, a top SP writer lost his touch and made poor episodes at Games, like this one! This episode is nothing but a bunch of retarted and gay monkeys cramped in a gay episode. There is one thing I've noticed about this episode, what happened to Ren's voice?! I know Billy West voiced Ren in this episode, but I don't see any reason for his voice to change from a kinda-french guy, to a man-I-can-almost-taste-that-crap guy, so that's why this is gay and boring. This episdoe is not even funny. Nope, nothing funny about it. I wish Games would stop wasting their time on gay episodes and stop their monkey beeswax.


    Fake Dad: Better as ever, the plot was very good, although Ren was kinda mean to Kowaski, or whatever his name is. Also, the ideas for the episode or something like that was very good too and Ren will fell sad for the fat kid to go!


    What can I say? Fake Dad was way better the Monkey See, Monkey Did Suck.

    FINAL GRADE: C-moreless
