Recap / Renand Stimpy2x 05 Haunted House Mad Dog Hoek
Haunted HouseRen and Stimpy go to stay in this enormous old mansion where a ghost tries to scare them... and fails miserably every time.Mad Dog HoekThe duo are wrestlers.
Haunted House contains examples of...
Bait-and-Switch: After repeatedly failing to scare Ren and Stimpy, the ghost decides to commit suicide using a hammer and a nail to the head. Stimpy stops him, insisting he can't do it... and gives him a vial of poison to use instead.
Bowdlerization: Some overseas versions of this episode (particularly in Australia) end the cartoon after the ghost says, "Now, I'm going to end it all," cutting out the Gainax Ending shown below.
Comically Missingthe Point: Ren sleeps perfectly fine with a bloody head on his, yet freaks out when a couple of dimes are stuck in his ear.
Driven to Suicide: As ridiculous as it sounds, the ghost decides to end it all after failing to scare our heroes.
Gainax Ending: The ghost kills himself after Stimpy gives him some poison and returns as a fat, naked black man who says "I'm alive. Killer." and then drives away in a convertible. You know the ending is screwed up when even Ren and Stimpy are confused.
Throwing the Fight: As they mercilessly beat up Ren and Stimpy, one of the wrestlers looks at his watch and tells his partner that "It's time to throw the fight." They then drop to the floor and Ren and Stimpy are declared the winners.
