3 Wolves announce today the release of Nickelodeon’s legendary 90’s cult classic TV series The Ren and Stimpy Show’, 25th Anniversary Collection on 9 December. The collection is available for pre-order today at www.renandstimpy25.com.
It features an incredible 796 minutes of content spanning the crazy adventures of asthma-hound chihuahua, Ren Hoëk, and his overweight and under-brained companion, Stimpy. This collectors edition includes 2 bonus episodes and select commentary from the shows animators and writers.
Ren and Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi set a new standard for animated shows and paved the way for others such as Beavis & Butt Butt-Head, South Park and much of the Adult Swim series. The show was controversial for its off colour humour, sexual innuendo, dark humour and violence which lead the series to becoming a cult classic amongst fans.
One of the show’s most notable visual trademarks is the detailed paintings of gruesome close-ups, along with the blotchy ink stains that on occasion replace the standard backgrounds, “reminiscent of holes in reality or the vision of a person in a deep state of dementia” as put by journalist Jessie Eubanks.
Since its launch 25 years ago The Ren and Stimpy Show went on to release a total 52 episodes with its final show on November 14, 1996. Some notable artists and performers who voiced incidental characters on the show are Cheryl Chase, Frank Zappa, Randy Quaid, and Rosie O’Donnell.
Tom Lind of 3 Wolves said ‘We jumped at the chance to celebrate the 25th anniversary of these whacky characters because this is far more than just a box set, it’s the content that distorted our humour and shaped a generations language – long may there be Happy Happy Joy Joy’.
This special collectors edition is available for pre-order today at www.rendandstimpy25.com for £39.99 and from the 9 December will also be available via Amazon and all major leading platforms.
