Friction between Nickelodeon execs and Kricfalusi -- mostly over Kricfalusi's attitude and penchant for late work -- eventually led to his removal from the show in 1992. Production was then absorbed by Nickelodeon itself (via its inhouse studio Games Animations) as most of the original staff gradually left in disgust over Kricfalusi's firing. The show was canceled in 1995 after a total of 53 episodes and was removed from Nick's lineup in 1996.

** Well, "Double Header is certainly one for Stimpy, since he gets to eat his "favorite" food, [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal "barbecued Boston baked beans"]]. Ren, on the other hand...[[spoiler:now has to deal with the..."result" of eating baked beans...]]

* MoralityChain: Stimpy is this to Ren, to an extent. While more often than not Ren acts like an abusive jerk towards Stimpy, it seems like Stimpy's the only person he's ever been remotely nice to. Stimpy's also been able to calm Ren down somewhat when he's having one of his mental breakdowns, instill some sense of right and wrong in him, and get him to loosen up once in a while. It's implied that if Stimpy were to ever disappear Ren would go completely and irreversibly AxCrazy, and be overcome by his loneliness.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: The original show has a cynical undertone to it in both the Spumco era and Games era episodes, but it has plenty of lighthearted moments to balance it out. Adult Party Cartoon lands at the far end of the cynical end--heck, one of the unfinished episodes was named "Life Sucks"!

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: The original show has a cynical undertone to it Played with in both the Spumco era and Games era episodes, eras of the the original show. It's actually vague as to what end it falls towards. On the one hand, you have the cynical Ren, and on the other you have the idealistic Stimpy, although being an "eediot", he likely doesn't know how to be anything else[[note]]It's highly implied that he may not even know what the words "idealistic" or "cynical" even mean...[[/note]]. In any case, there are a number of cynical moments[[note]]yes, even Stimpy's DespairEvenHorizon when he can't his..."son".[[/note]], but it also has plenty of lighthearted moments to balance it out. Adult Party Cartoon Cartoon, on the other hand, lands at the far end of the cynical end--heck, one of the unfinished episodes was named "Life Sucks"!

* InformedSpecies: Ren's design is such an extreme caricature of a chihuahua that he's barely recognizable as one, especially with his later redesigns. This was even acknowledged in "Stimpys Fan Club", where a fan letter asks if Ren is a mosquito. Stimpy likewise barely has any resemblence to a cat.
