Following The Ren & Stimpy Show's initial run from 1991-1995 on Nickelodeon, series creator John Kricfalusi attempted to bring it back as Ren and Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon - an ill-received program that was markedly more explicit than its predecessor and ultimately only ended up airing three of its planned six episodes before being pulled.

I do wonder if part of the reason why this reboot was given the greenlite was because Comedy Central needs more new content and it might be awhile before they can safely film anything outside of their talk shows at their hosts' homes. Both Jodie and Beavis & Butt-head are also headed to Comedy Central while Clone High doesn't have a network attached as of yet.

Clone High is yet to be set up at a network.


Chris McCarthy, President of ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group, commented on the new series: "We are excited to reinvent this iconic franchise with a new creative team and our partners at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio". 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.

Ren & Stimpy was originally created by John Kricfalusi and focused on the adventures of Ren, a temperamental Chihuahua, and his less than smart sidekick, Stimpy. "Stimpy" Cat, a dimwitted and happy-go-lucky cat.

Created by John Kricfalusi, the show, about an emotionally unstable chihuahua, and a good-natured yet dimwitted cat originally launched on Nickelodeon on August 11, 1991, and ran for nearly five years, building u pa cult audience. Which is why the latest move to Comedy Central makes ideal sense.


A Beavis And Butt-Head revival is also happening.

Fans delighted in the all-American animated series' dark absurdist humor and retro fifties appeal featuring demented tooth fairies, space madness, powdered toast men, and toy logs. Additional unaired episodes were eventually released on DVD in 2006.
