Recap: Renand Stimpy3x 04 Stimpys Cartoon Show
Stimpy wants to make a cartoon to impress his idol, the decaying, senile Godfather of Animation, Wilbur Cobb. Ren, who has no talent, is made the producer and proceeds to work Stimpy to the bone while he does nothing in return. When the cartoon's finished, they take it to Wilbur Cobb and the episode ends with the cartoon finally being shown.

Stimpy's Cartoon Show contains examples of...

  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Wilbur Cobb.
  • Rambling Old Man Monologue: Wilbur Cobb gets a number of these.
    Cobb: World War I. So there I was, up to my elbows in Nazis! But don't get me wrong. I'll eat just about anything, so long as it's easy to swallow!
  • Stylistic Suck: Stimpy's cartoon, animated by writer Ron Hauge.
  • Take That: Some of the stuff Ren does as a producer is apparently similar to things John K. himself did.
  • What Could Have Been: Had Spumco remained on the show Wilbur Cobb's role would have been taken by Raymond Spum, a sort of Walt Disney-type figure.
