The Ripping Friends

Show Summary

From John K., the creator of Ren & Stimpy come the brawniest crime-fighters of all time, The Ripping Friends! Their mission: to "Rip," or destroy anything that stands in the way of freedom and justice. The group spends their days in hardcore physical training to fight evil. In fact, they intend to become the most powerful crime fighters in the known universe. They've honed their natural gifts of strength, agility, and craftiness to an amazing degree, but some criminals still choose to challenge them! They were somewhat inspired by Powdered Toast Man from the earlier Ren and Stimpy episodes. The show originally aired on Fox Kids (Previously 'Fox Box' and now '4KidsTv') on Saturday Mornings, but it was later moved to Cartoon Network to be featured on Adult Swim on Sunday nights. Characters Crag: The Team's leader. Older and wiser, Crag is the one who gets the assignments and chooses the best men for the job. The best men, of course, are always the Ripping Friends. Rip: Rip is a bulging flesh bag of adrenaline, always ready to jump into action at the drop of a hat. His five o'clock shadow is the toughest in the world. Slab: Misunderstood by the world around him, Slab is often mistaken to be slow-witted and dull. But he is merely at war with his inner feelings. Chunk: Everybody loves Chunk, but they are concerned about his youthful, young ways. If only he'd sop thinking about girls and music, he could devote himself to more serious things. Like ripping. Jimmy, The Idiot Boy: A ward of the Ripping Friends, Jimmy sews their super suits, fixes their meals and generously cleans up after them. He constantly daydreams about becoming a Ripping Friend. He-Mom: The only person alive who can stand up to the fury of the Ripping Friends is their own mother. He-Mom adopted the Ripping Friends when they were infants.
