Ren and Stimpy
« on: February 15, 2007, 05:47:48 PM »
I, Pak-Man, do solemnly swear only to watch the Ren and Stimpy Show, and to make underleg noises during the good scenes, to memorize every line and quote them shamelessly in unwelcome situations, and to wear unwashed leiderhosen every single day for the rest of my life! Discuss the masterpiece. :^)

Hehe. Been meaning to ask: Is the "kodiak" in your login referring to the kodiak marmoset, as seen on R&S?

I can take either Ren. Billy did a good job impersonating John K, but John was the original. Advantage, Mr. K.

Now if you made the claim that Bauza made a better Stimpy, we'd have an argument on our hands. :^)


EDIT: Stuck the wrong name for Stimpy's second voice actor in. :^)

Oh but according to billy HE was the original.  At least as far as the interview and the selling of the show was concerned.

It's certainly not that Billy doesn't have the voice chops to pull it off, it's just that John K. has a much more dry voice(as best as I can describe it). You can hear this when John K. raises his voice. Not screaming, but hoarse yelling. And Ren does plenty of that. Billy just has a different tone in his voice that doesn't resonate with me like John K. does.

Billy did a decent job impersonating John, but after becoming accustomed to hearing John voice Ren, it always stood out as phony.


And only a true fan would be discussing the ins and outs of cartoon vocal performance...  ;)

Yeah. John K. had a certain rhythm to his Ren that Billy never quite got down. It's very prominent when he's doing George Liquor (American). :^)

The first couple of seasons were gold, then it got kinda hit and miss. As for the "lost" episodes... well, we would have been better off without them. And those pointless introductions on every one of the "lost" episodes. Right from the get-go, John K was as grating and offensive as possible, calling the women "bitches". I wonder how that poor girl standing next to him felt as he was going off on his tirade?
my entry made my girlfriend laugh a few times, the best I can hope for really.

I'd say Whalberg definately qualifies as really good.

The "lost" episodes were crapy. That was a sad waste of 15 dollars, the only good parts were the introductions I think.
Global warming, where?

I remember watching the first of these new "episodes" on SpikeTV, and saying to myself, "John, it's not working. The magic is just not there. And being vulgar and nasty just because you can does NOT make it funny. Sorry, bud. This train has sailed."
