Arguably John Kricfalusi
's Magnum Opus
and one of the most influential animated cartoons of all time, Ren and Stimpy originally ran from 1991 until 1995, for a total of 5 seasons. John K. was fired, mostly for Schedule Slips
and fights with censors, in September 1992. A new animation studio called Games Animations, with ex-Kricfalusi associate Bob Camp as creative director, would take over production for the rest of the original run.
In 2003, Kricfalusi was put back in charge of Ren and Stimpy, and created a new version for Spike TV
entitled "Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon". Controversial among fans of the original show, this newer version would only last 6 episodes, with half of those actually airing on television.

Adult Party Cartoon
- 'Onward and Upward': Ren and Stimpy are back, and living in the mouth of a homeless drunk. When Ren can't take the living conditions anymore, he and Stimpy move into a spittoon at a bar, where they feast on bodily excretions and finally confirm fan speculation about their sexuality.
- "Ren Seeks Help": After a horrible fight with Stimpy, Ren goes to a psychiatrist (Mr. Horse) and flashes back to his childhood, where his sociopathic tendencies flourished.
- 'Fire Dogs 2': Following the events of Fire Dogs from the original series (and based on John Kricfalusi's actual encounters with fellow controversial cartoonist Ralph Bakshi), Ren and Stimpy spend time with the head fireman from the first cartoon, which turns into a nightmare.
- 'Naked Beach Frenzy': In this scandalously revealing episode, Ren and Stimpy spend a day at the beach, where Ren enjoys the view of hot, scantily-clad women. note
- 'Stimpy's Pregnant': Stimpy once again mistakes something from his bowels as pregnancy (cf. "Son of Stimpy"), only here, it's more disgusting than heartwarming. note
- 'Altruists': In a loose parody of several Three Stooges shorts (the original ones with Moe, Larry, and Curly), Ren and Stimpy build a house for a beautiful woman and her son who have been left homeless. note
