** After the name of the villains from [[Film/TheForceAwakens The Force Awakens]] was revealed to be "The Knights of Ren", it immediately spawned memes mixing Star Wars and Ren and Stimpy together, including names like "The Knights of Ren Hoek" or "The Knights of Stimpy".

John K (who loathes the ''Star Wars'' series and hasn't even seen the newer movies) said on his Facebook that he is ''not'' amused by this connection, and refuses to draw commissions based on it.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: ''Adult Party Cartoon'' is extremely notorious in part because of this. It tried to simultaneously be a drama and [[RatedMForMoney a shock comedy that takes every single vulgar, offensive and tasteless joke]] UpToEleven, and failed at both. The drama was [[{{Narm}} too ludicrous]] [[{{Glurge}} and forced]] for the mainstream, and even if it wasn't, they would have still been turned away by [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy the depravity]] and [[{{Squick}} overall grossness]], and even old time fans were alienated at how the subversiveness of the original kids show was thrown out for humor that was nasty for the sake of being nasty while also throwing out the lighthearted elements that balanced out the original shows salty humor. Meanwhile, the comedy crowd didn't find any of the jokes funny. Unsurprisingly, this led to its extremely short run and it being panned by both fans and critics.

* FreudWasRight: All over the series in regards to Ren And Stimpy's relationship. And as mentioned above, the implied romantic tension between PTM and his assistant in "Powdered Toast Man", especially the ending shot where they start a fire and [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar roast a weenie and marshmallow over it.]]

** In the Games Animation episode, "Superstitious Stimpy", Ren hides in Stimpy's spittoon to avoid further bad luck. Seven years later, in the very first Adult Party Cartoon episode, "Onward and Upward", Ren and Stimpy move into a spittoon in a bar.

** Egg Yolkeo goes through a LOT of crap in his episode, before being [[spoiler: accidentally eaten by Stimpy, so soon after learning how to say "I love you, Daddy"]]

** This show, of all things, managed to make us feel bad for a ''sentient fart'' in "Son Of Stimpy".

* HarsherInHindsight / FunnyAneurysmMoment: While it's less funny and more genuinely emotional, "The Littlest Giant", where Stimpy (playing [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Littlest Giant]]) runs away from home after a long time of torture by "[[{{Jerkass}} the big]], [[CatsareMean mean giants]]". Made harsher by the fact that nowadays, [[ButtMonkey bullying]] [[TheChewToy victims]] have often done pretty much the same, [[DrivenToSuicide or worse]] (just ask the corpse of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suicide_of_Phoebe_Prince Phoebe Prince]] or the many kids who come to school with weapons to get back at their tormentors and end up on the news for causing yet another school shooting).

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Stimpy. Really, is he as stupid as he often implies? Or is it just a false stupidity as a reason to be funny? Since it may be argued[[note]]Emphasis on "may".[[/note]] that it's incredibly smart to be a MadScientist.

** Maybe Stimpy is a {{genius ditz}}. Brilliant in the laboratory, [[CripplingOverspecialization breathtakingly stupid outside of it]].
