Well that will be awesome.

Wooow!! :D

I might actually be able to make it! A dream come true, to see you speak, John :)

Jorge Garrido said...

Screw Calfifornia, when are you coming to the True, North, Strong & Free?

Jesse Oliver said...

Hey John

Besides the San Francisco event, I am SO EXCITED about the Ren & Stimpy Lost Episodes DVD coming out on July 18th! These past few days have been driving me CRAZY! I can't wait for this DVD! I can't wait to see all the aired and unaired episodes, the bonus material and the hiddin extras A.K.A easter eggs. I hope it aint so hard to get to the easter eggs. Anyway, I bet you will be showing the APC R & S cartoons at the San Francisco event right? You should make a new SPUMCO DVD with all the cartoons you made that were banned. SPUMCO is the coolest animation studio EVER!

Bummer. I want to go.

El Flesh said...

Man, John K., I hope nobody said this before, but... Why the hell don't you make a friggin adult toon movie?!?
SOMEBODY's gotta want to produce it! I would sure as hell plunk down $10 to go see 6 twelve minute George Liquors spun into a feature!

Dicking around with the internet is all fine and dandy, but you gotta push push push to sell - and I'm sure the returns aren't what anyone hopes they would be.

Don't retain too much of a Quebec attitude; (I was born and lived mostly in Montreal)man, swallow a little pride and get your feature movie made and do it on time - show 'em john K. is THE man for animation!

Brett W. Thompson said...

Hmm, no tickets on sale ahead of time: John, you are such a big star that I'll have to get there waaaay early to ensure a seat, huh? :)

It's so funny that out of the two weeks I'll be in Mountain View for work you'll be doing this in San Fran! Eeee!!!

And I don't want to be a pest, but if I do manage to bump into you, will you sign my sketchbook? :) Oh I sound like such a fanboy huh. (but I am!)

For those of you who can't make it, I'm sure John will do this again, and perhaps those of us who do go can write about it for you (poor subsitute, I know).

El Flesh said...

Sorry for the double post, but it seems you can't edit...

Anyway, I forgot to add: Ren & Stimpy sure belong in a feature somewhere!

How many people agree?

Jesse Oliver said...

A George Liquor movie would be cool. But I would love to see in theaters the Ren & Stimpy "Life Sucks" movie.

Hey, Wasn't The Ripping Friends originally going to be a feature movie? That would have been cool.

stiff said...

John,

Real sorry for the off-topic post, but I saw on your myspace page that you like Beavis and Butthead?? I'm confused. Perhaps I misread.

A Highly Refined Pirate said...

YAY!!!!! Im sooooooo there!! I live like 15 mins away from SF, ahhhhhhhh, Castro, the land of the gays. Im so excited! I hope to meet you.

Shawn said...

I highly recommend going to this show. I went to John's last show in Santa Monica, and it was the best! Being in a theater full of people laughing at grade-A cartoons is my ideal idea of the ultimate fun. John gives you your money's worth every time.

Ryan G. said...

John, Ill talk to the head of the animation dept. tommorrow to see what needs to be done to get your ass to Chicago! I couldnt figure out my space or I would have left you this message there.. If you want to shoot me your email so I can give it to the dept. head, im sure something can be worked out. Thanks John.. rmguimond@hotmail.com or through my blog.

I'd love to attend but I should stay where I am and earn more money.

But, I would like to attend the Ottawa International Film Festival this year because of the Bob Clampett Retrospective.

Are you planning to attend this, John?

Big AL said...

Cool!

If I don't get booked for an event on Friday night maybe I can make it. That Saturday I'm drawing at a wedding.

The adult show ... 18 and over?

Some guy with a pen said...

I hate you. For all of your atistic goodness and my lack of ambition to put in the time and effort to refine my ability to draw cartoons. I hate you.
I. . .lissen, man, I'm sorry. I didn't meant that, that's just the jealousy talking.
I love you, John K. Now come over to the Eastern seaboard where people like me can appreciate you and not have to pay the airlines in first-borns to come and see a real man's cartoonist and his work!

Gavin Freitas said...

See ya there John. No Spumco crew?

R said...

Hey John- Whatever happened to Brick Blastoff? Did it become Ripping Friends?

The Butcher said...

I know why John is going to San Francisco....

...BECAUSE REN AND STIMPY ARE GAY GAY GAAAAY! I saw it with mah own two eyes, they were screwing under those bedsheets! At first I was like, "What? They're baseball players?" but then I done saw it!

Nah, I'm just kidding. I seriously wish I could go so I can see the audience's reaction to the rapist mentality of Dirty Dog in WPH. How many cartoon characters are rapists? None since Pepe Le pew.

Who says Ren & Stimpy are both the same sex?

Anonymous said...

Hey, in San Fran, Ren & Stimpy could get married legally!

george liquor said...

Watch out for those fags! They want to make homo-matrimony O.K.!

scot said...

Ren would have to be a female... didn't you see Vanilla Sky and Blow?

The Butcher said...

Ren is definetely male. Stimpy can be both male and female. The only constant about him is that he is a cat...of sorts. He has testes in his muzzle and a mouth in his nose..blah. Sorry I even brought it up, I was being sarcastic anyway.

yayayyayayayyayay! i knew if i waited long enough something special would happen up here in SF... i mean besides all the other stuff. maybe you can come to the blues club i work at and watch all the tourists dance like retards, its so worth it.

max ward said...

I wish there was some sort of right time right place incident that would help me end up at one of these things. I'd do anything to go.

Mary Whitehouse said...

This man needs to be banned from the media. He is corrupting the morals of society. He is influencing the new generation into becoming perverts. He is spawning a new breed of rapists and drug addicts. Go to his presentation and protest.

sounds like Mary Whitehouse needs a white dick in her

Ryan G. said...

Hey John! Great news! I talked to the dept. head today and he said that they are looking for a speaker to come to the Illinois Institute of Art! Send me your email so I can give it to him. Or I can give you his if you want. Either way he was all about it. rmguimond@hotmail.com

You make it sound like being a pervert is a bad thing.

Jeremiah said...

"Dude! the link is to the friggin White House!"

But Mary Whitehouse has been dead for five years.

Unless they burried the wrong woman.

God help us.

I think that link is broken.

McGroarty said...

I'd sure like to see what the cute girl looks like without a face full of dog tongue. Any chance of playing this big enough to see from Chicago?

I don't really care said...

The new generation is already perverted and drug addicted, just like my generation, and we turned out fine. I resent the rape allegation. If you share your drugs, there's no need for rape.

max ward said...

Hey what's the hot dog and bacon thing at the top of the page now? I've never seen that. Now I feel pissed off.

The Butcher said...

That's from the Ripping Friends. It's a hotdog and a bun.

max ward said...

>>That's from the Ripping Friends. It's a hotdog and a bun. <<


Is it on the DVD? I have the DVD and I don't remember that.

R2K said...

Cool one : )

MAKINITA said...

WHATS THAT HOT DOG AND A BUN THING LOOKS GREAT ,IF ITS FROM THE RIPPING FRIENDS U SHOULD PUT THE OTHERS EPISODES ON DVD DONT LEAVE US HI AND DRY MAN !! HEHEH

The Butcher said...

I dunno. It's from the Rip-along segment at the end of the show. The hot dog and bun are fighting because hotdogs come in pack of 6 and buns are in packs of 8 and they can't decide who should change. Rip comes in and settles the score.

I don't have the DVD.

Jesse Oliver said...

Hey John

Was there a gag cut out of the Hotdog and Bun scene from The Ripping Friends? Because when the Hotdog & Bun huged the screen fades to black. I'm sure that something had to have been cut. Also it would be nice to see the complete series of The Ripping Friends on DVD in America.

You might benefit from some sort of prescription, yourself.

"That's from the Ripping Friends. It's a hotdog and a bun."
Then Max Ward said:
"Is it on the DVD? I have the DVD and I don't remember that."

It's on the Australian DVD (along with all 13 of the original episodes). I think yours might be the American version, with only the episodes The Indigestible Wad, The Infernal Wedding, Flathead's Revenge and Frictor. It seems ironic that the Aussie version has the complete series, yet it never was broadcast down under (as far as I am aware).

Jesse Oliver said:
"Was there a gag cut out of the Hotdog and Bun scene from The Ripping Friends? Because when the Hotdog & Bun huged the screen fades to black. I'm sure that something had to have been cut."

I remember that, though I suspect that John intended the screen fading to black bit to be a gag in itself, a bit of mock-censorship as if to say "We'll leave the rest to your imagination!"

JohnK said...

Yeah it was cut, but I am restoring it.

Ha ha. You're kidding, right? Those were the worst BGs ever. They were done in Photoshop. Super cheap and cheesy.

I hope California cracks in half vertically! >:-<

Then it willl float to New York, and I will be able to see the show. <:-D

nazi yahtzee paparazzi said...

Hey, I agree with his positions, but just don't like the way he treats people!

He was provoked by some heckler who's probably a member of the KKK! He should have responded, "Michael Moore? You don't even know me, so don't make assumptions!", or something to that effect!

I'm giving him advice, so others will understand him better! He's a political genious, and his opinions are more valid than other's! (ahem...)

Anonymous said...

Why do right-wingers come onto this blog and argue with everyone who's not as radical as they are? Only us rational progressives can comprehend the art of cartoons, so all you facists can eat shit!

The Butcher said...

Anyway, back to the Ripping Friends.

I remember first reading about them in Wild Cartoon kingdom (I still have Rip and Crag on my Spumco Secret Membership cards years before the show aired!) and they were supposed to be the cartoon for men. They turned out to be the Saturday morning kid's show and Ren and Stimpy (originally a children's program) wound up being the cartoon for men. How do you feel, John, about how backwards that ended up? I know you really don't like the way Ripping Friends turned out, so do you think it would have been better as an adult oriented show, or are you just disapointed about the crappy production?

Ted said...

Ripping Friends bgs aren't the worst ever, even if they have significant problems.
This guy did some RF bg layouts, as seen on his CV page:
http://www.dobidy.20m.com/photo4.html
(also see the Ripping Friends section at the link on my name for a couple more I acquired from him)

He's big into Rocket Robin Hood (Bakshi worked on it, it was produced in Canada, it had the look of late '60s Marvel, and it was purportedly big in Canada), and I conjectured a couple of years ago that John would therefore have been exposed to it in vast quantities and that the show was likely a deep seated scarring experience for him, and as such it was the granddaddy of the Ripping Friends. Stephen Worth said "quite so" at the time, but I wonder if John would like to expand on that...

I think RRH is or was on that "Worst Cartoons of All Time" slate at the San Diego Comicon, but I think that's unfair (in the same way Ed Wood movies are unfairly characterized that way as movies); it's an amazing thing to watch in its own way. Each episode has an embarrassingly large amount of material repeated in every episode (long opening, middle and end bits, as I recall).

>>This guy did some RF bg layouts, as seen on his CV page:

Holy Jesus. Pastel colors on wiggly lines in a show for manly people.

I'm gonna show some clips from the Ripping Friends at The Castro.

Just ignore the BGs. I'll show the stuff that turned out funny despite all the forces of Jesus working against us.

Dr.Awkward said...

Wow, I just stepped into this thread, and people are duking it out over politics all over again!

I'm not gonna argue with anyone, because it gives me a migraine! Nobody's gonna change their views, no matter how devoid of the facts they are, so what's the use?

By the way, you can thank David G for bringing up politics on that other thread. He started that shit!

max ward said...

Off topic, but you know what I always thought was funny about the Ripping Friends? How "the forces of Jesus" who were working against you thought you were trying to make a serious PC super hero show and not a comedy/satire type of show.

I love how instead of the relationship of The Ripping Friends and Jimmy the Idiot Boy seeming funny and weird it seemed like some kind of politically correct acceptance message.

And then on top of that, sometimes Spumco would shine through the mold of the show. Really confusing.

Hey John -

If you would like a tour of one of the 7th wonders of the world when visiting SF, give me a shout. Bizarre giant paintings outdoors, scrap heap amphitheater, and more await.

Cheers,

I'm in LA, anyway.

LOL I Like those BG's, and yes, cheap and cheesy is a good description. I thought it was a choice. It sort of goes with Crag's personality.

Hey, I agree with his positions, but just don't like the way he treats people!

My poor, delicate little rosebud...
--Speaking of Cagney references, EACH DAWN I DIE is coming out this month!

BY THE WAY, John, I've always wanted to know--

Was Ren's "please, please, God" line in BIG HOUSE BLUES a reference to Cagney's end in ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES?

He should have responded, "Michael Moore? You don't even know me, so don't make assumptions!", or something to that effect!

Wasn't my line funnier?

Jesse Oliver said...

Hey John

I just got in the mail today the Ren & Stimpy "Life Sucks" picture I ordered off of the every picture website. IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!!

Was the original hand painted or digitaly painted?

I sent you a package of my original work over a week ago. Did you get it? What do you think?
