“AND WITH THESE HAAAANDS, I HOLD THE FATES OF MILLIONS!”
Though it took nearly 7 months of off and on Fridays, my friend and I just recently finished rewatching the entirety of Ren & Stimpy together. From the classic pilot to the much derided Adult Party Cartoon. While the episodes varied wildly in quality over the course of the series, it spawned a lot of discussion and intrigue among the two of us about cartoon production, joke telling, and gross stuff.
It also made me realize I had never really drawn the pair before. I don’t know why, I guess I never felt like I could. Anyway, here’s a tribute to “Stimpy’s Fan Club,” home to one of my favorite scenes in the whole cartoon, where Ren contemplates the audacity of himself doing good deeds, and coming close MURDERING his friend simply because he’s the popular one.
