Hey John! I picked up my copy this morning. Can't wait to watch "Stimpy's Pregnant" tonight with Carol. She's due any day now (Twins!), so I'm sure this will be an educational and informative episode for us expecing parents!

I just got back from doing just that. It wasn't in yet. He said they'd have it either later today or Thursday.

I'll have to wait a little longer I guess. <:(

Hey, JOHN!
What day will you be at Comic Con and are you guys going to have a Booth?

Only got to watch beach frenzy so far. Could of been a lot funnier...great cute broads by Katie though,makes me wanna draw,and have some sex. Shit man,if naked girls,and adult themes is what is, shoulda just had them get into porn. You would have had the tits, crazy drawings,gross closeups,those great Kirk Douglas-Cary Grantish heads on the male stars, friggin gags galore!

If your still taking requests for episodes, at the top of my list would be Ren getting addicted to meth, which I think would be the grandest of all adult themed R&S,cause it would incorporate every aspect of the show that makes it great to the 10th power...it'd be nuts.

Anyway, the list is endless. The adult shit doesn't have to be quite as imaginative as the kid stuff, so you could pump out rubbish left and right, and I hope you get that chance. That being said, a huge part of me still yearns for the imaginative kid stuff, so I hope you don't stray too far, for too long.

Shit, one more request. There's a great episode just itching to see the light of day where R&S are members of a jazz band in the 40's. Takes place in a seedy little club...black folks dancin, singin, smokin, blowin their tops along with Ren on trumpet and Stimpy throwin down some retarded rhythm on the stand up. I'd love to see some black characters in your cartoons.

And I thought you were just gonna talk anonymous trash... I think you've got something there...Maybe some gangsters... Kinda Cotton Club... Hey, R&S could even BE black! Don't ask me how.

Roberto González said...

Yeah, I also love the idea of the anonymous man!

Hummm...I have temptations of buying this, but I think I'll wait to the Ultimate Set. I haven't bought anything via internet yet and some people in my family are skeptical about that. Also I prefer to have all Ren and Stimpy in one set and I'll love to have the original episodes too (mines are in poor videotapes).

Unless...there is some kind of differences in the special contents or something that I'd find truely much more interesting in this set than in the other.

Dammit.

I was pissed at the review Entertainment Weekly gave it. They didn't even talk about the visuals or animation. All they say is that theirs nudity, and the "writing isn't as good as it used to be." Not one mention of how it looks.

The Butcher said...

Dude...Altruists. Fucking Altruists man. My god. The timing on that was perfect. It's more like watching a lost episode of the 3 Stooges than a lost episode of Ren and Stimpy.

Naked Beach Frenzy was great too. Best tittie animation I've ever seen.

Stimpy's Pregnant, is probably the weakest out of the 3 unaired episodes. It's pretty heart-warming and it's once again having to do with something out of Stimpy's nether regions. The only problem is you may get criticism for rehashing the Son of Stimpy idea, but it's fan suggestion that I'm guessing was inspired by that episode anyway.

I got this thing for only 16 bucks at Best Buy. Over an hour of unaired Ren and Stimpy plus the 3 episodes that did air. That's an awesome deal. I hope I get to see more episodes with the humor and delivery of Altruists some day. Good shit, man!

John Park said...

I got up early to buy the "Lost Episodes" and this is what my rambling and mostly incoherent mind has to say.

To say that these episodes aren’t as good as the original run of the series is a bit of an unfair comparison. It’s not really the same show, just the same characters. And besides, these episodes are BETTER than many of the original run.

Unlike some shows that have been called back from cancellation this collection has pushed the Ren and Stimpy franchise even further and let it mature and improve. The jokes are faster paced, more frequent, and much more adult. Now let me clarify when I say ‘adult’. I don’t mean adult in the sense that they are more crass and vulgar (although some do toe the line of shivering grotesquery), I mean that they are smarter and much cleverer and even complex. They are adult in the sense that they aren’t designed for children to understand.

Pretty much all cartoons designed for children today rely on dumber and uninspired jokes. Every single joke in these episodes is fresh and nearly all of them work on a level that far surpasses what is considered ‘funny’ these days. Where cartoons nowadays have a stupid character just so they can throw in stupid jokes about how stupid the character is, the stupid jokes in these episodes come from the characters and are written from the character and not for the character (if that makes any sense). In my opinion, most writers, when they see a joke work they would rather copy that joke for a cheap and easy laugh instead of doing what John K. and the many others who worked on these episodes do and that is finding out why the joke works and or just making things because it IS funny and not because it’s SUPPOSED TO BE funny.

These are by far the best Cartoons created in the last decade, easy.
I don’t know what else to say.

GO BUY JOHN’S CRAP!

sam e. a.k.a. firecrouch said...

My uncle missed the Aero Theatre screening with me, so it'll be great to finally see his reaction to "Naked Beach Frenzy".

Anyway, John, do you remember this guy named Doug from Nickelodeon? I met him at a party last month and when I found out he used to work for Nickelodeon I told him how upset I was that Nick fired you and made their own version of "Ren & Stimpy". I don't have the exact quote, but this is pretty much his his response:

"Oh, John? That guy was an asshole. We liked him for his animated shorts at film festivals, but he kept wanting to do his homophobic stories. So we sat him down and said, 'Look, we think you're a creative genius and all, but can you please do something more politically correct?' And he just said, 'No'."

Now, I understand and appreciate that Doug gave me this answer, but isn't it awkward to ask a creative genius to do something politically correct? And earlier works of an artist are always an indicator of similar future works. Shouldn't have Nick expected "Ren & Stimpy" to get more extreme?

Anyway, I don't want to take up too much space, so respond to this post if you're curious John, 'cuz I've got more stuff to say about my conversation with Doug.

JohnK said...

>>Anyway, I don't want to take up too much space, so respond to this post if you're curious John, 'cuz I've got more stuff to say about my conversation with Doug.<<

I don't know anyone from Nick named Doug. Lots of people pretend to have known me.

This "asshole" made Nick over a billion dollars with his politically incorrect ways, btw.

Kevin Langley said...

Finally got to watch it, this DVD is great from start to finish. Altruists is one of the funniest and most entertaining cartoons ever. The Angry Duck scene is hilarious. So many original expressions one after the other. I see you used loads of Jack Shaindlin's music, it's some of my favorite especially the dramatic cues. I hope you get to make more direct to DVD cartoons.

What is your new experiment anyway? Care to elaborate?

Anonymous said...

got mine yesterday. Amazon should have it for ya guys by the 18th, they're usually always early w/ shipping(for me at least ;).

anyway, Man! I just can't get over how great they look; Collective fan opinion isn't with me but Altruists and Firedogs 2 are definately the gems!

JohnK said...

>>I see you used loads of Jack Shaindlin's music, it's some of my favorite especially the dramatic cues. I hope you get to make more direct to DVD cartoons.<<

Hi Kevin,

wow you know your stuff!

all the new cartoons are timed to the music.

My experiment is to do more freelancing with artists I already know are ghreat and I can count on them to do good and unique work, rather than waste all my money on studio overhead and training unknowns.

It's what HB did when they first started their TV studio in 1957 and it produced their best cartoons.

>>>>>>>I don't know anyone from Nick named Doug. Lots of people pretend to have known me.

This "Doug" person is a dick and a delusional bootlicking, spineless assclown from the sound of it.

>>>>>>>So we sat him down and said, 'Look, we think you're a creative genius and all, but can you please do something more politically correct?' And he just said, 'No'."<<<<<<<<

Damn right he said "No". That's what self-respecting men with a plan in life do. They say "No", and flip the bird towards that part of society that ultimatly cannabalizes itself with unoriginality.

But with such a great outlook like that, I think everyone can rest assured that the opinion of this "Doug" isn't worth a sack of shit with salt on it.

First and foremost, "Politically Correct" is a fake term created by the biggest, most obnoxious self-centered, controlling, facist, asshole bigots in the world.

It's primarily used to convince other people that getting shit on by 20 other bosses for a living is an excellent way to carve yourself a peice of the proverbial management pie.

Y'know... without actually being able to do much else besides ride on the backs of others more talented than them, until it's time to make their stop at the bank.

"Politically Correct" is also used to describe the hypocritical behavior of retarted monkeys in suits.

ANyone who adheres to that term as if it's a way to actually go through life are two-faced bastards that can be "Fair and nice" to everyone when they feel like it and turn around and act like a pompus, fascist, shit-talking, corporate yes-man ass sucker when it suits them.

I've absoulely no doubt in my mind that this "Doug" is one of those worthless, two-faced jackasses that pollute the world with this hypocritical and ultimatly useless "Politically Correct" crapola.

Anonymous said...

I think political correctness is a load of left-wing bourgois hypocrisy. They just use euphemisms for their "naughty words"; they think if they use different words for the same meanings that makes them moral. God they make me want to puke, the slimy phonies. Keep up the great work, John K. You're the best thing to happen to art and fun in yonks. Leon.

sam e. a.k.a. firecrouch said...

>>To johnk and anonymous

Jeez, I'm glad I made that post, quite a reaction. "Doug" was a nice guy, but you're right in thinking that what he said was iffy, more than iffy actually. John, could this guy have been anyone at Nickelodeon that put pressure on you while you worked there? One thing's for sure, I was a tad shocked when he used the word homophobic. Could this have been the same guy who didn't like the mistletoe scene from "Stimpy's First Fart"?

According to Doug, I was probably one of a few kids that actually liked Spumco's "Ren & Stimpy", and that towards the end of Season 2 the ratings were declining. Well as far a numbers go, I'm sure there were plenty of people watching, but it may have mostly been with people outside the 6-11 year-old demographic. "Ren & Stimpy" is a very general audience show, but because of advertisers and sponsors, the American entertainment industry specializes in "targetting audiences", not content. And it's possible ratings went down due to lack of advertising the show and its timeslot, which was one of the reasons "Invader Zim" ratings went down and the show was eventually cancelled. Coincidentally, NIckelodeon also didn't like "Invader Zim". At the very least, they didn't take that show and make their own "clean" version.

There must be so many great stories behind eps like Space Madness and Visit to Anthony.

I dunno if production for APC is completed but I really hope some of this stuff is included in the supplementals

Whoever this is, he's completely delusional.

It was the highest rated cable show in history for years, even after season 2. People hung on hoping the shows would return to the quality of seasons 1 and 2.

The person wasn't anywhere near me or Ren and Stimpy.

I worked with Vanessa Coffey. She was the 1 executive. There was also a story editor named Wil McRobb and those were the only 2 people at Nick that I dealt with.

The show was making an absolute fortune when they took it over. They used the money and my production system to found their own studio. That's all it amounted to.

Interesting:
Today on IGN.com, an interview with John and an interview with Matt Stone and Trey Parker went up. It's kind of cool to compare and contrast the views of some of the biggest names in cartoons. That is, if you believe in calling "South Park" a cartoon.

>>The show was making an absolute fortune when they took it over.

Well, I guess to them it was more about creating a "kid-friendly" image rather than creating a mass-appeal show. Like I said before, it's all about pleasing advertisers, not whoever's watching. Doug said that Nickelodeon saw how much more popular "Ren and Stimpy" was with an older audience, and ran it on MTV and VH1. But that didn't really help when they just showed reruns and newer episodes didn't contain the same universal appeal of Spumco episodes. And the Nicktoons Network run is edited. To be honest, the Games Animation episodes had their own little charm, but not best-suited for "Ren & Stimpy".

Eventually we got into a discussion about how cartoons and making them fit to be non-offensive. I must've done some convincing, because we came to the conclusion that pushing boundaries in animation and inspring events like Columbine aren't related, and that this political correctness is all just a result of fearing public image. Nickelodeon has enough lawyers and money to prove that cartoons aren't harmful. I could go on about this subject, but right now I'm too tired. If anyone wants to hear more just drop me a line tomorrow.

Congratulations, John. It's nice that people are finally getting to see your package up close! The picture of it looks very nice, but it's nothing like them getting their hands on the real deal.

there was no "Doug" involved with any of this stuff. He was probably another gofer who later got a couple promotions and became a self appointed expert on what happened.

I just finished watching all of my brand new REN AND STIMPY DVD's!!!! Those cartoons are amazing and all the extras are really cool too! I think this is the best DVD set I've ever owned, or ever WILL own!!! I was so happy that I finally have this set, I celebrated my cartoon watching with tons of pizza and beer, so I'm kind of drunk right now! HAHA!

Later schmucks, I'm gonna go watch all those great cartoons AGAIN!!

Tell all your friends to go buy this DVD, or else! It's the BEST!

I watched some of the set earlier today. Stimpy's Pregnant is downright heartwarming. I hope you get to make some more!

I don't really care said...

I'm watching ONWARDS & UPWARDS and I can't stop laffing at those posh expressions when they are at the dinner table. I can't stand it, they are so funny. I can't understand how anybody could overlook all that and obsess about the grossness. Even Stimpy swallowing the giant snotball is done so well, how can anybody be more concerned about what it is than how funny it looks?

I wanna know who did those posh poses and expressions, because Iwill be laffing at those for a long long time. There are so many incredible ones, but the ones that make me lose it are of Ren right before and after the painting of Stimpy's filthy hands. Those are not really posh ones, more aghast, but anyway that whole sequence just floors me. Anybody who says these cartoons aren't as good as the old show is using something other than eyes...

I better go to bed now, they'll still be here tomorrow :)

Sound of the Day said...

This set is simply excellent. The extras put to shame what other sets disgracefully consider extras. The easter eggs are fun and entertaining. The quality of the storylines and animation is top-freakin-notch!

Without a doubt I can endorse the oft-repeated line: Buy John's Crap!

Brian Romero said...

John,

I just read the IGN article. It'd be great if Adult Swim not only got you back to make some more Yogi shorts, but maybe take on some of the other classic H&B characters. The two Jetsons shorts were hilarious, I especially liked the argument between Jane and George. I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd love to see a John K Flintstones.

David Germain said...

Mr. K,
love the article... your heart's in the right place, man. I like what you said about America being at the top of it's game around 1930-1950... i couldn't agree more. Gads of classic entertainment came from that time period....some of us are still relying on it today.
My DVD's in the mail ....i look forward to viewing it.

Jim Grue said...

Dear John Krisfalusi,
As a huge Ren and Stimpy fan since 1991, I just want to say Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for bringing the dynamic duo back to us. The animation and drawings are TEN TIMES better than what you guys did back at nickolodean and I'm so happy that you can write and draw the stories, but without restraint from the retarted executives who can't draw. I just bought the Lost episodes yesterday. I was up all night watching it and I kept rewinding and freeze framing to take in all the gorgeous artwork you guys did.There was so much going on in each scene, I had to rewind it to see what I was looking at,but it was great! It's what makes a great cartoon! I am also writing to you because I am a huge fan of you and your Spumco crew. You are the only studio in the world that REALLY apprectiates cartoons, artists, and the means to make great cartoons. I am a student at the School of Visual Arts in Manhatten and I'm currently going into my Senior year of animation. I just wanted to let you know that you and your entire Spumco crew keep my spirits going and give me the strength that it's still possible to make good cartoons in this modern age we live in. I've been drawing since I was 5, and I will never put it my pencil or ball point pen down when there is so much out there to draw and observe. I hope to see more new Ren and Stimpy as well as more Spumco cartoons in the future. You will always have my support. Thank you John K and Spumco!
Sincerly,
James
P.s. If you're not too busy, I would love if you would visit my blog. I just started it so there's not much out yet, but there will!

Or if the dvd is selling good?<<

We'll know more by the weekend, but so far the news is good. Spread the news on your own sites!

John,

I would need to contact you by email.

I have been publishing for a few years a series of books about Disney artists called Walt’s People that collects the best interviews ever conducted with Disney artists.

Since I have now joined Warner Bros, I thought it would be fitting to tackle in my free time a similar project about Warner Bros’ animation artists. I do not yet know when the first volume of this series will be published but I was wondering if you could help me.

I was wondering if you knew who aside from Korkis, Barrier, Solomon, Adamson and Schneider is likely to have conducted in-depth interviews with Warner artists? And if you had done so yourself in the past and would be willing to contribute, knowing that the project is clearly non-profit (like Walt’s People) and aimed at helping animation historians get access to very hard to find material.

Could you please answer privately at dghez@hotmail.com ?

Thanks a million in advance for your feedback!

Didier

Speaking fo DVDs, Jerry beck recently dropped a tip that there would be a Friz Freleng documentary on volume 4. I know you don't care much for Friz's work, but you must like some of his cartoons. Are you involved in the documentary at all?

Duck Dodgers said...

I talked so much of this set, that two italian friends of mine, that do not even care about animation, are gonna buy it!!!

mce said...

All of these episodes were brilliant, now I need to show my friends so they can see what real cartoons are!

Looking forward to future dvd releases!

Guys: tell all your pals about the goodness of 'Lost Episodes'!

Rachel said...

Rock on, John K!

I just added the Lost Episodes to my Ren and Stimpy lens over on Squidoo, http://www.squidoo.com/renstimpy

I'd also like to shamelessly ask that you add some item featuring the rubber-dressed Walrus being suspended by Mr. Horse while saying "call the police" to your Cafepress store so that I can fulfill a personal fantasy.

JohnK said...

Hi Rachel

I just checked out your page. It's so thorough! I will link to it real soon!

I don't have a drawing of Mr. Walrus and couldn't post it on cafepress if I did. Email Sumner Redstone and tell him!

""Oh, John? That guy was an asshole. We liked him for his animated shorts at film festivals, but he kept wanting to do his homophobic stories."


Wow...just, wow. Hey, "Doug": you're full of it. I know John already put this comment in its place(the wastebasket), but let me add one, as I was around at the time and in the first place, WTF--"film festivals"??? Total bullshit and the first proof that this guy "Doug" was bullshitting you completely. I wish to god I'd been at that party at your elbow. I don't agree with everything John says, but I DO insist that history be corrected whenever possible, because as JK points out there are way too many fools who outright lie, say "Oh yeah, I was there" and blather on inventing complete nonsense.
John worked on Mighty Mouse with all of the people from which he formed Spumco--with his fellow big shots, Lynne, Jim Smith and Bob Camp he made the pilot for Nickelodeon, "Big House Blues"; I believe Nick commisioned the pilot. There were no shorts for "film festivals", although BHB might have been shown at one somewhere later, but it was made specifically for Nick to prove that Spumco could do a show, which they accomplished. ADD to that the fact that ALL the early boards/shows were...what you see on TV, mainly; no homophobia or whatever that idiot is nattering about at all. BY the time Nick took the show away they LOVED it, and it was a huge HIT--there were kids' toys in all the stores, etc. So much for not popular with kids. Then when the show was done by Camp and Games it was actually much more "offensive" and imho pointless than it ever came close to being in the "old" incarnation, althought herewere some bright spots(mostly things begun by the Spumco pre-split crew).
Feh. whatever.

Trevour said...

The day has finally arrived. Bought it last night! I have never been so excited about picking up a DVD!!!

And I had a 45-minute drive home - it was the LONGEST 45 minutes ever to endure. When I got home, I watched all of Disc 1, stayed up until 4am, thoroughly enjoyed the interviews, animatics, etc., then got very sleepy, but I HAD to force myself to stay up and watch "Ren Seeks Help" before calling it a night! Still one of my favorites, and that episode gets better every time I watch it!!! I'll be watching the rest of Disc 2 tonight, and continue with multiple viewings until the DVDs wear out and I have to buy replacements.

So thanks John and everyone else who made it possible to get this DVD out!!!

katzenjammer studios said...

john!

spumco is over (eegads)! could you make a post about your thoughts on independent studio business models. what worked about the way spumco was set up? what didn't? how are you going about this information and doing what you're doing now?

the animation industry is like the music industry and politics. when grassroots movements gain a following, the major entities try to co-opt it as quickly as possible to try to remain "hip". power puff girls gained a little notoreity (feasibly for it's entertainment value and appeal to small kids), but now cartoons are just flat because "the other flat show was popular". shrek did well in the box offices, and instead of blaming it on an entertaining story, execs seem to think CG was the inciting factor (we haven't had a traditional feature in a while). i think if a bunch of independent studios are making popular content that's merit is based on it's QUALITY, studios will have to concede to the audience and raise the bar for animation quality. i want to help raise the bar, but when it comes to being a pragmatic about handling the business end ($$$ is essential), i'm CLUELESS!

i find that there are great resources to learn to animate, but when trying to learn how to run a studio and stay afloat making your own films, it's hard. it seems like people see you only as competition and are unwilling to share their experience. i don't want to have to waste 30 years in the industry learning what others already know.

the only way progress will happen is if information is passed from generation to generation openly.

Bondo said...

SWEET BABY JESUS, THIS SHIT IS FUCKING FUNNY!!

Thank you, John. Our patience has truly paid off. As someone who's been at your side since Mighty Mouse, I think I can speak for the "real" fans out here.

The intros and interviews were great. They were sooo laid back a couple times I felt as if I was just sitting with the guys having a beer and watching that damn dog run around.

What the hell was up with those Easter Eggs?

Naked Beach Frenzy - Funny as FUCK! Don't watch it unless you enjoy blowing beer out your nose. Fast-paced and extremely well-timed! And the TITS! My GOD the TITS! Just fuckin' incredible, man. George Liquor would be proud.

"Atta girl, Nancy!"

I'm not going to sit here and waste your bandwidth by talking on each and every great cartoon in the set. Let me just stop fawning right now and sign off with a sincere

Thank You.

The Butcher said...

So me and my brother and my best friend watched these episodes yesterday and during Altruists we were cracking the fuck up. So much that we probably missed a few other verbal gags in our roar of laughter. Good shit. Most Ren and Stimpy episodes rely on sight gags, but this was equally funny with the dialouge.

I want to see more shit like Altruists. And what do you mean Spumco is no more? Should I be sad?

Captain Spaulding said...

Mr. K
this question's been burning in my mind for years...did you ever produce any animation that accompanied those Spumco 3 Stooges dolls? Or were those just produced on their own? Those damn things were brilliant, and you've been able to capture the spirit of Moe, Larry, and Curly's humor so well...
Have you ever considered doing some balls-to-the-wall Stooges shorts?

Falafelkid said...

Hi everyone - and a big special hello to John K. from Germany.

I am a big fan of yours (and of Ralph Bakshi) and I absolutely love Ren & Stimpy. The Lost Episodes seems to be quite a different experience from the regular show, as far as I can make out on the preview site. (I pre-ordered my copy on Amazon USA and it will arrive this week!!!)

Why do the cartoons appear to be drawn differently? Did you use a different animation technique? Did you not work together with the old background artists? And, most importantly, is it true that Billy West is no longer doing Stimpy´s voice? *sob* I´m all for Ren getting his original voice back (yours) but I just love Billy West and Stimpy was one of his best voices...

Anyway, on the whole I am very much looking forward to Ren & Stimpy unleashed and uncensored. Contentwise, the Lost Episodes will be fantastic, as I can tell from the preview clips. And I am very grateful to Spike for supporting what essentially still are underground cartoons. Even though back at university in England ten years ago, everyone I knew was into Ren & Stimpy.

Anyway. Take care for now, John. And please keep on churning out more Ren & Stimpy stuff - though preferably with the voice talent of Billy West ;)

Regards, Andreas

>>The part with Stimpy licking his asshole made me cry laughing on "Stimpys Pregnant" John. Was that your gag or Erics?<<

I wanted him to be licking himself, but whoever drew the bunghole did that on their own. I actually was grossed out by it and was gonna change it, until I saw how many people laughed at it.

Tibby said...

I got my copy! YEY! *doing happy, happy, joy, joy dance* So cool.

Your so photogenic. It looks especialy good on our 100inch home theater screen. Projection rocks!

Keep up the great and awesome work!

I don't really care said...

is it true that Billy West is no longer doing Stimpy´s voice? *sob*

Can I be the only one who thinks Eric Bauza is a better Stimpy? Billy West drifts toward a babyish quality, but Bauza stays a full-grown-man-idiot-thing. Works better for me. It's also nice not to have to confuse Stimpy with a big M&M, Phillip J. Fry, and the Cheerios Honeybee :)

Hey folks,

Yeah and vote down the crappy ones and vote up the good ones.The latest one is from a guy who thinks the best part of R&S was Nick's interference.

Tibby said...

Heh - I do have to add - I was thoughly disgusted, repulsed and appaled and offened at all the material!

Heh heh heh heheheheheheh - I love it!. And your commmentaries are fabulous and enlighten us all. I liked learning about Ralf Bakshi.

You know - it's wierd about the generation gap in animation these days. The only thing I personally really remember from Bakshi was the film "COOL WORLD". One of my fav. films - kind of a forgotten film. My parents wouldn't let me view his other stuff - I was just a wee one at the time. I need to make a trip to the video store and rediscover this dude, now that I'm old enough.

Love the work and Katie Rice's cartoon gals are absolutely fabulous! Nipples and all. Great stuff!

Ollie said...

Hey John, Last night I watched Ren Seeks Help. It was definitly my favorite episode so far. It had some great backgrounds. My favorite one was the long path outside the house when Ren was standing outside listening to Stimpy crying.

-Ollie

Falafelkid said...

Hi Tibby.

The only thing I personally really remember from Bakshi was the film "COOL WORLD". One of my fav. films - kind of a forgotten film.

If you think that Bakshi movie is forgotten, check out Heavy Traffic and especially American Pop, a kind of Godfather-esque family generation flick, only with music replacing mafia. It´s stunningly drawn, beautifully told and features a soundtrack so rich it is way up there with all the great music films.

It´s hard to choose a favourite Bakshi film, but this one certainly stands out. It´s available on DVD via Amazon.

P.S. (to John): Hope you don´t mind me plugging Ralph here ;)

The Butcher said...

"Can I be the only one who thinks Eric Bauza is a better Stimpy? "

Bauza has funnier lines and uses a wider range of different voices for Stimpy. He's better.

Falafelkid said...

Okay, then: Can I be the only one who thinks Billy West is a better Stimpy? ;)

The Butcher said...

Most people agree West was a better Stimpy.

I don't.

Falafelkid said...

Well... no disrespect to Bauza. He´s a great voice artist. I´m just a huge Billy West (and particularly Futurama) fan.

lyris said...

>> When will there be a UK release?

Don't count on it. The British Board of Film Censors censored the ending of "Out West" from the upcoming UK release of The Seasons 1 & 2 DVD because they thought R&S appeals to kids too much.

Utterly ridiculous, but with that in mind, how do you think Adult Party Cartoon would go down?

Just do what I did and buy the American version from PlayUSA.com or Amazon. All you need is a multi region DVD player and any TV bought in the last 8-9 years will show the American standard picture fine.

Jorge Garrido said...

WHOAH BEST UNIT EVER. I bought it at HMV and have been going through its tons of AMAZING content! So many great special features but the CARTOONS tehmselvs outshine them. Full review soon!

lyris said...

Oh, and regarding Billy and Eric's Stimpy.

Personally my favourite is still Billy's old Stimpy from the first and second seasons. Eric Bauza is really, really close, especially in the later APC episodes. He's also a ton better than what Billy West's version of Stimpy became in the Games cartoons - all gooey and standard.

David Germain said...

I don't think anything of Ralph's will top Fritz the Cat though.

The Butcher said...

Robert Crum created Fritz the Cat and apparently was not happy about what Bakshi did with it. However, Bakshi has many other great films of his own creation.

Coonskin is a great example. There's some really funny animation in some scenes, the voice acting was brilliant and the story had a whole hell of a lot more substance than Fritz the cat.

Kevin Langley said...

Fritz is good but my personal fave is Coonskin. Wizards was great too.

Anonymous said...

I happen to think upon careful consideration that Bauza's Stimpy is much more appealing, and closer to what the character should be.

I'd be very happy if Bauza voices Stimpy forever.

John has mentioned that "man" sound of Stimpy's often. Eric Bauza does a vetter job with that. The "Childlike idiot" and the "jewish man" was never so expertly combined.

West, all due respect to him, seemed to either do one or the other at different times, but not very much inbetween.

Coal said...

I'd love a copy of this but I live in Japan (a DVD region 2 area). Is this disc region coded, or are there any plans to release outside the US?

christopher said...

It is amazing! Everyone go buy it!

I had it on pre-order from Amazon but I wasn't going to recieve it until the day after it came out so I cancelled my pre-order. Then I set out to the local Best Buy early yesterday to be the first to pick it up only to discover that my car was stolen the night before!
So I just wanted to say thank you John for making such an entertaining collection of real cartoons because after dealing with insurance and the cops it's the only thing that made the day tolerable!

Hi John

I bought the Lost Episodes DVD the very day it came out. This is the BEST DAMN REN & STIMPY DVD EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All six episodes are PURE CLASSIC! I love all the bonus material and storys about each cartoon. I really love all the Ralph Bakshi storys that you, Eddie, Vincent and Steve brought up. You also have a really cool set up in your house. All the cool SPUMCO stuff and rare Hanna Barbara stuff on the walls. I love to collect stuff too. I have the George Liquor and Jimmy The Idiot dolls, All four SPUMCO comics, the first Wild Cartoon Kingdom Magazine, the Palisades Ren & Stimpy figures and ALL the R & S DVD sets! Anyway, This Lost Episodes DVD is the COOLEST DVD ever. Eddie is right, after watching "Altruists" you are ready for a Feature Film. Your idea for R & S "Life Sucks" should be an official R & S movie for the theater. I hope to GOD that people will buy so many copies of this DVD that the VIACOM company will beg you to make MORE R & S cartoons! I would really love to see "Wilderness Adventure" as the very next R & S episode to be produced. Again, this is a really cool DVD and I hope other people will think so too. I wish you lots of luck for more R & S cartoons.

"LONG LIVE REN & STIMPY!!!!!!!!"

If you live in another country just get yourself a cheap region free DVD player.

http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks

you can use this site to modify your existing DVD player and find out what DVD players are region free. Usually there's a pretty simple code you can enter in the remote to do it. I recommend buying the cheap $40 DVD players they are always really easy to convert to region free.

Nate Birch said...

Picked it up today!

I'll write a review on Amazon once I watch all the episodes. Didn't quite make it all the way through 'em last night (some of us have things to do other than watch cartoons darnit!).

Thus far Naked Beach Frenzy is my favourite (haven't watched Stimpy's Pregnant or re-watched Firedogs 2 yet though). I kind of expected it to just be a series of cheesy sex jokes...but it's actually a lot sharper than that, plus it's the best looking cartoon on the disk (and not just because of all the bare female flesh).

Oh...and having the interviews before each cartoon is kind of an interesting approach to take with things (as opposed to doing the standard commentaries over the cartoon and such). At the very least it gives the DVD a unique flavour.

Oh...and up here in Canada they're actually doing some decent advertising for the DVD. Shows on the "Comedy Network" and other channels are being sponsored by the DVD. I was actually kind of surprised to see it getting that kind of heavy mainstream push.

David Germain said...

yes that was Mike McDonald, a great comedian from Canada.

Not to be confused with Mike MacDonald from MADtv or The Doobie Brothers.

I do enjoy Mike's stand up. (his impression of the guy who wraps CDs in plastic) "OH! There's WRINKLES! It must be TIGHTER!! TIGHTER!!" :D

Coal said...

P.C. Unfunny said...

I guess it makes more sense to post tssi here:




Well John,I have seen two out of three lost epiosdes and I am impressed. "Stimpy's pregnant" was an interesting story and the pacing was well done, my favorite scene was when Ren and the police officer was shooting at people on the highway to get to the hopsital. For the love of God, put "make way for life" on t-shirts, me and my friend can't stop saying it ! The only thing that dissapointed me about that episode was the entire "Ren sitting down and stimpy doing all the work" thing,it was fairly humorous but it ran too long to point of being un-funny.


"Altruist" was a good story, there were some very nice gags at the begining and in the middle, unfortunetly it draggged.Just after Ren knocked out the duck,the cartoon simply went on auto-piolet until the scene were Stimpy was building the roof,then it dragged and pretty much crashed at the end. Overall,I enjoyed myself and I anticipate more R$S cratoons on DVD.

Ren Seeks Help was also brilliant

Naked Beach Frenzy was also brilliant and REALLY funny.

Each episode has a unique feel and there's tons of variety. This DVD rules. The bonus material owns. Thad doesn't know anything, go BUY IT.

Im addicted to that little ditty playing during the menu on disc 1. I fell asleep last night with the DVD playing and had a dream about 2 tall smelly corpses in tuxedos being wheeled around on a pushcart loader in an arcade. I'm convinced it was because of this very ditty, something subliminal going on in there!

Really fun and great DVD John. I hope the success allows you more opportunity!

John, once you get your team together, I think it'd be nice to put an alternative ending together for that cartoon. The present ending really tarnishes what would otherwise be an instant classic.

WEll, I wouldn't go that far. He's not George Lucas, I'm just saying that the ending of that cartoon was wasted potential. It made me really sad when they were smokingin his face, and he WAS cute, but it was still gross. The rest of it ws BRILLIANT, I've never laughed so hard at any cartoon made after 1962.

This DVD collection is truly brilliant! Thank you so much for releasing it! I've laughed harder this weekend than ever before.

"Ren Seeks Help" will haunt me forever. That has to be the most demented cartoon ever, especially Ren at the end. If only we knew what he did to Stimpy!

"Altruists" is such a wondeful loving tribute to the Three Stooges, but stands on it's own as a classic piece of animation. The angry duck, the three things and the sawing gags are unbelievably hilarious!
