* {{Expy}}: Rip is basically just Kirk Douglas, one of the many references John K. makes to his favorite actor.

''The Ripping Friends'' (2001-2002) was a ''very'' short-lived animated series created by Creator/JohnKricfalusi of ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' fame. It was about four brothers who are superheroes: Crag (the leader), Rip, Slab and Chunk. Their chief is their mother, He-Mom, who is a [[LadyLooksLikeADude very masculine woman]]. Their servant and biggest fan is Jimmy the Idiot Boy from ''The George Liquor Show'' (and the "Spumco" production card at the end of the John K-produced episodes of ''Ren and Stimpy''): a brain-dead, idiotic teenager who can't speak properly. Their RoguesGallery included Citrocet, a MadScientist; the Indigestible Wad, a living wad of gum; Flathead, a sapient tapeworm and Frictor.

The series aired on Canada's Teletoon channel and, in America, on FOXKids in the twilight years of the block (and of Saturday morning cartoons in general) and once aired on Creator/AdultSwim (since this show, like ''Ren and Stimpy'', looks way too gross and sexual to be considered "children's entertainment") in 2002.

* TheAce: Rip. In a twelve episode series where every character has at least one spotlight, Rip is the central character in at least three episodes. He's often shown as the strongest, angriest, and most impulsive in a universe where brute strength and anger are superpowers.



* GrossoutShow: Not as much as ''Ren&Stimpy'', but there were moments of this (and there would have been a lot more if John Kricfalusi had more control of the show).
