The delirious animated series Ren and Stimpy makes its DVD debut in a three-disc set that features seasons 1 and 2, as well as a handful of extras to please its devoted fan base. The surreal adventures of short-tempered Chihuahua Ren and good-natured but simple cat Stimpson J. Cat caught on like a house afire with teen and college audiences during its 1991-96 run on Nickelodeon, despite regular battles between the network and creator John Kricfalusi (who also voiced Ren and several other characters) over allegedly objectionable content in certain episodes. The conflict eventually led to several episodes suffering edits, much to the chagrin of the show's creators and audience alike; the unedited versions of these episodes have become much sought-after and traded items among collectors. And while this set attempts to rectify that situation by presenting the show in its uncut form, die-hard fans should know that several episodes retain minor cuts; however, many others, most notably the pilot, "Big House Blues," and "Powdered Toastman" are presented in their original, uncut versions. --Paul Gaita

2.0 out of 5 stars waste of money 29 Oct 2008
sure, ren and stimpy is hilarious. and yes i did enjoy the dvd A LOT!

but, knowing that i dont have the banned episode 'mans best friend', the 'hanging song' on the episode 'out west' and various comenteries on a few episodes actualy enrages me everytime i watch this dvd. what futher enrages me is that there is a frame taken from the episode 'mans best friend' on the back of the 3rd disc box.

i dont think im over reacting when i use the word 'enrages' but i bought this dvd hoping to see the, so called, 'uncut' versions of ren and stimpy.
and i was totaly let down.

buy the usa verion, really do, because the uk version is a complete and utter waste of money especialy as you dont get what you are told.

First of all, let me say that these first and second season episodes of Ren & Stimpy are the finest TV animated cartoons ever made.

Sadly, when the American DVD was made, the mastering team used versions of the episodes that had had material removed to free up time on commercial-heavy American TV. However, the DVD restored other cuts that had been made for children's TV.

This British DVD has been taken from the same source as the US version, but now adds cuts of its own. The British Board of Film Classification have decided to remove the end of one of the cartoons to make it suitable for children and idiots. This DVD is not aimed at children. If it was, it would have been released under the Nickelodeon brand. Also, the episode that children's TV executives "banned" (that is, decided to confine to the vaults for over a decade) - "Man's Best Friend" - which was on the American DVD, is missing here, probably because of its violent content.

This makes the tagline at the top of this being a "Collector's Edition" utterly laughable. Save yourself the bother and buy the American Region 1 version - it's still incomplete, but at least it's incomplete because of an accident instead of nanny-state government censorship.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic. 4 July 2005
This DVD-box is a must for fans, or anyone who remember to have seen the Ren and Stimpy Show, or people who like crazy cartoon drawings, maaaad expressions and voices, hardcore cartoon-toy-commersial parodies, or UNMATCHED parodies on cartoon clichés.
R&S Show is really advanced, modern humor, even 10 years after it was first shown, and is ready to be re-discovered by people who ever saw and liked a TV episode.
Contains around 30 episodes, chronologically listed. Excellent image quality (the reviewer above has a bad DVD player) and sound.
Starring: Ren, Stimpy, Mr. Horse, the Pope (voice by Frank Zappa!), Sven Höek, Crocostimpy, THE BIG SLEEP!!, Muddy Mudskipper, and many more !
*This show is not for children. It contains adult language and situations.*

5.0 out of 5 stars A true classic! 5 Dec 2005
By A Customer
This set contains the best seasons of ren and stimpy in all their stinky glory! Watch one of the greatest cartoons of all time for both kids and adults, with fantastic extras too. One thing worth mentioning however is the adult warning. This is bit extreme as there is NO adult language at all and although there is some 'scary' scenes, this is only the case if you're under 8. In other words, buy this dvd cos it rules.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy happy, joy joy!!! 13 Jan 2007
By Kelly
***First of all, for all of those who have never watched Ren and Stimpy:

I would have to say, it is similar to a violent Spongebob Squarepants. The humour is based around Ren hitting Stimpy, mad screams and crazy laughs. No humour is based on celebrities, or toilet humour. Yes, there are farts, but the most disgusting things they do are eating dirt, rubbish and hairy balls of god knows what.

On the whole, I'd place it more disgusting than Futurama, but tamer than South Park. This is not for kids, but not for adults either. If you think you are weird, this is probably for you.

***Now, if you have seen Ren and Stimpy...

The region 1 boxset that everyone has said is uncut and much better than the region 2 one, its not worth the hassle of finding something to play it on (unless you cannot live without the cut parts that you probably haven't even seen before).

The noticable bits that were cut were:

-an extra line of what Ren's going to do to Sven and Stimpy

-on the western episode, there is a hanging song(which you can understand was cut, but it was a pretty naff song. Canadian Kilted Yaksman and Happy happy joy joy were 10 times better).

-then obviously the banned episode:Man's best friend


Man's best friend is only half an episode(10 mins). Its a pretty boring episode about the liquor man getting Ren and Stimpy as pets. The reasons for banning it (I believe) are: lots of implied smoking(they use doggy treats as cigars), and Ren attacks the owner for a good 3 minutes (that really is as violent as any other episode).

In conclusion, its not worth obtaining the boxset for this episode. Did you find Stimpy's fart boring? Its worse than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars HappyHappyHappy, JoyJoyJoy! 28 Sep 2005
By A Customer
The more you watch this,the better it gets. Recommended to all cartoon lovers and psycopaths. Although it doesn't really have much swearing or adult content compared to other things, but it's easy to see why Nickelodion were uneasy about it.
Note- Set your DVD player to NTSC for maximun quality. It becomes pixilated and rather dim coloured when set to PAL.
There's so much to love here, there are limited special features, but the shear quality and humour of the cartoon compensates for this.
A must buy for lunatics and psycopaths alike.
