Happy happy, joy joy!!!,
This review is from: The Ren and Stimpy Show - The First and Second Seasons [DVD] (DVD)
***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
(SPOILER IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT:
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.)
Now, the best episodes:
-Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksman
-The great outdoors(beaver fever)
-Space madness(Icecream bar)
-Stimpy's invention(Happy happy joy joy song)
and of course, the log adverts that should only be in these 2 seasons.

That was the most useful review ever. I HATE that feeling of missing out you get when you know you're watching an incomplete version of a DVD, but the unedited version is £30! Seeing a list of cuts makes me wonder what all the fuss is about...and now I only have to spend £7.
