....'Ren & Stimpy'.......Comedy Central rebooting....


Ren & Stimpy Reboot Ordered at Comedy Central

.....Comedy Central is bringing back another one of TV’s most beloved animated duos. Just one month after commissioning a Beavis and Butt-Head revival, the network has ordered a reboot of the Nickelodeon classic The Ren & Stimpy Show.

The Ren & Stimpy reboot will be overseen by a new creative team, as the property is reimagined for a new generation. An episode count and premiere date have not yet been revealed.

In addition to Ren & Stimpy and Beavis and Butt-Head, Comedy Central ordered a Jodie-centric Daria spinoff back in June. ViacomCBS has also commissioned a Clone High reboot by way of MTV Studios — though a network is not yet attached.

“I want to thank our partners at Nick Animation as we re-imagine these iconic characters with a new creative team,” Nina L. Diaz, President of Content and CCO for ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group, said in a statement.

Added ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group president Chris McCarthy, “We are excited to reinvent this iconic franchise with a new creative team and our partners at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio. Ren & Stimpy joins our rapidly expanding roster of adult animation including South Park, Beavis and Butt-Head and Clone High as we continue to reimagine our treasure chest of beloved IP for new generations.”

The original Ren & Stimpy Show premiered in 1991 as one of Nickelodeon’s first animated series, alongside Rugrats and Doug. It ran for five seasons before it was cancelled in 1995. The following year, a previously unseen installment aired on MTV.

Seven years later, the spinoff Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon premiered on the now-defunct Spike TV and was axed after just three episodes. Additional unaired episodes were eventually released on DVD in 2006.

You fat... boated... eeeeeeeeedioot!

There are so many cartoon shows in the last 30 years that they can "borrow" storyboards from that only require a quick re-write on an acid trip. It just needs a decent animation studio and voice actors to run several seasons.

I'm sure this won't be as edgy as it those were, probably much safer and "woke" like most reboots in the past ten years.

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

It will be worthless, I'm sure. I still have my DVD collection, unedited, and the lost episodes as well.
