I dont mind saying I watched R&S since it started on Nickelodeon. I'm not sure if I was a warped child to have watched the show or if the show warped me. I guess I may never know...
Right, anyway, what a truly bizarre show. I love it. Who'da thunk a show about a dog with a voice like Peter Lorre and a cat with voice like Larry Fine (and some interesting gender issues) would become as big as it did. I don't watch very many cartoons today, but when I do, I always see R&S influences in them.
With most people I know, R&S is a pretty polarizing show - either you like it or not. Nothing in-between. When are they going to write The Philosophy of Ren & Stimpy? That would be great

I Loved Ren & Stimpy!..
The first 3 1/2 seasons were Classics! Then the 'politics' came into effect, the split of John K & Bill West, and the struggling remaining seasons.
The 'Lost' episodes had their few moments, but just didn't have the magic of the early days.
John K., to me, still seems to be a bitter person, and when you try to contact him by email or on his MySpace page, you get No Response by him or anybody affiliated with him.

It warms my heart to know that you have repeatedly tried to contact John K.... I don't know why... but it does.

I loved this show! My little brother claims that this show is what made him who he is today.  I loved the first few seasons of the show and then after John left they got very random and weird.  I never had the desire to see the Lost Episodes at all when they were first released.

What i think was the greatest stuff from this show was the commercials.

The Adult Party Cartoon episodes ("The Lost Episodes" on DVD) feature John at his best. He's nowhere nearly as funny under creative restraint. When Nickelodeon took the show away from him and gave it to some no-talent hack, they killed the series. "Adult Party Cartoon" gave John a chance to make a fresh start and do the series as he always wanted to do it. Too bad the morons at Viacom don't have the balls to let him do more episodes direct-to-DVD, so he can show people what REAL CARTOONS are supposed to be like!
This iRiff will only be on sale for another few hours. Get it while it's cheap!

Well presumably not enough people agree with you to make it economic, or it would be a no brainer.

As a veteren fan from it's inception, His creativity was more Focused back in the early seasons..
Maybe that was forced on to him by the 'higher ups' .
By Unleashing John K., his focus was just not there to me; he was allowed to take R&S to the extreme, but forgot the True essence of what Ren & Stimpy was in the 1st 3 1/2 seasons.
The magic of what it once was, was just not there as it used to be.

The magic of Ren and Stimpy, at least in part, was due to the fact that John K. was getting away with so much and still slipping by with a Y - TV-14 rating. When the M rating let him do whatever he wanted, he lost some of his subtlety, and some of the charm went with it. I can still enjoy the adult party episodes, but at the end of the day, I get more snickers knowing what they got away with in Nurse Stimpy than from any of the Adult Party episodes. :^)

My parents made me lived a deprived childhood. They (i.e. my mom) thought that it was too disgusting/stupid/whatever for me to see it as a kid, and wouldn't let me watch it. After watching a few episodes on the internet, I wish my mom would've cut me some slack as a kid. They were hysterical! I would've gotten the first two seasons yesterday if I had enough money with me at the time. Instead I had to settle for South Park.

Fun Fact: Frank Zappa's last work in any media was in the R&S episode Powdered Toast Man vs. Waffle Woman
