Recap: Renand Stimpy4x 01 Hermit Ren
Ren has finally had enough of Stimpy's stupidity, so he leaves their home to go live on his own as a hermit.

Hermit Ren contains examples of...

  • Anthropomorphic Personification/Literal Split Personality: To compensate for his lonesomeness, Ren makes friends with imaginary figures representing his anger, fear and ignorance.
  • Companion Cube: For companionship, Ren makes friends with the mummified corpse of the last hermit to dwell in the cave.
    • To compensate for Ren's absence, Stimpy makes a model of Ren out of his earwax. Later, it turns out that Ren made an earwax model of Stimpy.
  • Hearing Voices: After months of living alone in the cave, Ren soon starts hearing the mummy "speaking" to him.
  • Sanity Slippage: A realistic and horrifying example comes from Ren as he lives out his isolation.
    • Stimpy undergoes this as well while waiting for Ren to return, but it was played for laughs a lot more.
  • Way Past the Expiration Date: The final straw for Ren is drinking mushy milk when he tries to put out his burning tongue.
