Stimpy's Invention

This cartoon almost never got made because the Nick execs hated the story so much.
Some great Bob Camp poses I had to cut just so we could be allowed to make the cartoon at all.
They were afraid this cartoon would be too scary for kids.
The cheeriest (and one of the funniest) fellow in cartoons.

Bob J did such a great job on the animation direction and even went to the Filipines to follow it through, that I had to go to bat for him again just to get him an upfront credit. Nick always hated when I asked for extra credits. I have no idea why, but that was the case. They themselves added all kinds of credits to the show - of people who didn't do what they got credit for, and half of them that we never even met!A couple Bob Jaques animation drawings from Stimpy's inventions.

some frames of scenes I drew the layouts for.

This whole scene I added at the last minute to replace all the scenes I had to cut from the story:
I'm not sure, but I think this might be a Chris Reccardi layout.

Stimpy's Invention was 2 months late because of Nick delays and because they hated it and sat on it. The next year, they told us to make more cartoons like Stimpy's Invention and Space Madness.

Hey Vincent, do you remember any of this differently?
