** As far as I can tell, "Ren should be nice to Stimpy" was never actually a demand the channel made, which would solve that mystery rather handily. Ren was free to continue being unpleasant to Stimpy because they'd never demanded otherwise. Even if that had been the case, however, it wasn't as though Kricfalusi was the only person involved in the production who stood up for it. His firing was linked to a heck of a lot more problems than just the show's content.

His firing was linked to a heck of a lot more problems than just the show's content, and even after his departure, there were still plenty of old production members to argue for the show's content.

* OK, this troper noticed this and it makes Nickelodeon a bunch of hypocrites. OK, I read that one of the three things Nick hated about the show was Ren (the other two were "weird stuff" and "gross closeups"). They hated Ren because he's too mean to Stimpy and they wanted him to be NICE to Stimpy. Now, when John. K got fired and Games took over the series... Ren is still mean to Stimpy despite Nickelodeon taking over the show...WHAT THE HECK! WHY DID THEY ALLOW REN TO BE MEAN TO STIMPY DESPITE WHAT THEY SAID BEFORE?

* not to mention the fact that most of Nick's programming has "weird stuff" and "gross closeups". Nick even seems to be ''trying'' to make SpongeBob into the next Ren and Stimpy.

** That is why Ren needs to get help, for some reason he went too far that time, or his normal actions got out of hand.

* We all know that Ren can be a complete bastard at times, but at others, he's portrayed as a genuine loving, caring companion to Stimpy. (We can't say that about innocent animals he has no emotional attachment to, but we can clearly say that about Stimpy.) He's shown to, usually, only flip out and hit Stimpy when something major happens, (such as Stimpy giving away eighty-seven million dollars.) Even when Ren was at his worst- such as Stimpy's Fanclub, or Sven Hoek, he never laid a finger on Stimpy, as much as he wanted to. So what did he do to Stimpy in "Ren Seeks Help" that was SO TERRIBLE, it resulted in Stimpy sobbing hysterically and kicking Ren out of the house? Did Ren actually RAPE Stimpy or something? As effed-up as his character is, Ren doesn't seem like the type of person who would do something THAT terrible to his one true, genuine friend.
