Critic Reviews for The Ren & Stimpy Show Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

It's one of the best shows ever broadcast on the network, despite - or perhaps because - it's also a fantastically disturbing one.

Anyone disconcerted by the poo gags should think of Ren and Stimpy as an animated Waiting For Godot.

Anyone who doesn't get a tear in their eye when Stimpy licks his own hide clean in a scheme to earn money for his best pal Ren's pectoral implants is someone with whom I don't ever want to share a good cry.

The Ren and Stimpy Show, created by John Kricfalusi, may be the most original thing to happen to children's television since Pee-wee's Playhouse.

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

It's surprising to see just how much Ren and Stimpy relied on the surreal and the dadaist art ideals to manufacture its vision.

Feb 21, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Teens may enjoy the scatological humor and the occasional attempt at social satire.

Feb 21, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's hard to imagine a show like South Park coming along without a subversive cartoon such as Ren & Stimpy paving the way.

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

I mean, how can you get teary-eyed over a goofy cat that farts and believes its gas-bubble to be its child?

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Ren & Stimpy is a visceral experience like no other.

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Ren & Stimpy laughs at whatever it wants to and avoids giving audiences a message with its highly effective use of graphic humor. [Full Review in Spanish]

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

As cute and cuddly as kids can be, they also have a dark side. Ren & Stimpy spoke to the creepy little weirdo living in all of us.

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

It was a love-hate friendship, and it was a fun one to watch.

    This show is amazing! Sure, it's gross, but, hey, so is life. Get over it. It's really silly, and full of life. Unlike most people now a days.
