  • On Aloha Hoek, after getting tired of walking the fly, Ren Hoek decides to fly on a fly, but as they got higher into the sun, the fly then gets tired, and lets Ren sink underwater.moreless

    On Aloha Hoek, The music playing when Ren was flying on the fly was Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" from his opera "Die Walkure" and the music playing while Ren walks the fly at night was Sergei Prokofiev's "Grandpa" played on a bassoon from his musical work, "Peter and the Wolf."

    Therefore, this epsiode is a classic. It's like MI-5 but it's never an omen, it's a long story that contains the highlights. I'm giving this episode my HOT vote.

    Two thumbs up by myself!

    This episode is an Excelsior!

    I let Ren join Ganon!

    Ganon's in the book that is a pit!

    It Burns!moreless
  • Really great and imaginative story lines

    8.0
    this episode is one of many classic examples of the "over animation" of Ren and Stimpy. It is amazing how much emotions they are able to portray in their faces. One hilarious example is when Ren snaps and tries to fly away with the crabs pet fly. His psychotic look throughout his attempt to fly away is nothing short of brilliant. In the Pixie King episode you get a great deal of situational humor meaning not many memorable lines but funny as heck prat falls and gags. In Aloha Hoek you get those disgusting shots that R&S are so famous for.moreless

    This episode got good at the beginning (bearly) butr got horrible at the end!



    Pixie King: That episode was okay, except for the ending, in fact if I still watch this episode, the ending would be either freaky or bad, Ren shouldn't have been king or he should've loved his job, either ways.



    EPISODE GRADE: D+



    Aloha Hoek: Worst episode of season 4 EVER! I hated it when Ren and Stimpy took off fake makes and are really two spys at the end of the episode! I hate how they escape the island to a submarrien, that was stupid, not funny! Ren shouldn't have screamed at Stimpy in the first place. Or maby Stimpy should've a better sand house. I'm not watching this episode again!



    EPISODE GRADE: F-



    One question still remains, why did Ren and Stimpy get stuck in the island?! I might never know.



    FINAL GRADE: D-moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Ren: Yes, sir. There's nothing like roasting fish gall stones over an open fire.

    • Stimpy: Hey Ren, it's really getting hot in here and it's stinky.
      Ren: (sarcastically) Ren, it's hot and stinky and I don't like it.
      Of course it's hot and stinky, it's a carcass rotting in the sun!

    • Ren: I've always dreamed of living in a fish bowel.

    • Stimpy: (in a serious tone) It'll be dark soon, we should seek shelter.
      Ren: Hey you're right! There's no time to lose. We must build a dwelling to protect us from the unforeseen dangers that await us on this horrid island of despair. Well, don't just stand there. Build!
      Stimpy: I'm buildin', I'm buildin'.

    • Pixie Stimpy: Hey Ren, you ready for another day of back-breaking labor, kissing dew drops?
      Pixie Ren: Dew drop dead.

    • (Ren and Stimpy's sand castle house gets eaten away by the ocean)
      Stimpy: Hey, Ren I think the water ate our house.
      Ren: Why didn't you use water-proof sand, genius?!

  • NOTES (1)

    • The music playing when the fly delivers the seemingly-dead Ren to Stimpy near the end before the unmasking is Beethoven's 'Moonlight Sonata', the 1st movement.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The character of 'Big Kahuna' is most likely meant to be a parody of Marlon Brando, combining characteristics from both his movie roles and his physical appearance.

      Kahuna's 'wide' appearance (how fat he is) was based on how much weight Brando had put on in his later years; his voice was a fairly crude takeoff of the voice Brando used in playing the role of The Godfather (1972), the idea of him living on an island taken from The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996), which was in pre-production during work on this episode (it was widely known that Brando had signed on for the role), and finally the fact that he'd eat almost anything was also taken from Brando's declining years and was probably another shot at the whole Brando is fat' thing, poking fun at how Brando gained all the weight in the first place.
