I thought Billy West was a cool guy too but that was before I remembered the creepy stuff and got creeped out by him again a few months ago. :(

I like Futurama a bit better than Ren and Stimpy.
Global warming, where?

By the way, just for fun, try signing up for Billy West's forums and posting something even vaguely complimentary about George W. Bush, and if by the end of the day, Billy hasn't posted a huge Bush-bashing rant in response, then I'd be very surprised.  In fact, it doesn't even have to be complimentary.  Just write a post and insert the words "George W. Bush" in there somewhere, and you're pretty much guaranteed a huge rant from Billy on how the Bush administration is a criminal organization bent on abolishing every freedom Americans have.

Hey, I like Billy West more now.... :)

A reimagined 'Ren and Stimpy' will be returning to television after nearly 25 years off the air — without original creator John Kricfalusi, who was accused of sexual misconduct a few years back. He will also not profit financially off of the reboot.

Ren and Stimpy will always be a favorite of mine, but it was very much of its time. Back in the '90s. cartoons for kids weren't allowed to have adult undertones. That subversive element was what made it so wonderful. Today, it's almost expected for children's programming to play to the grown-ups, albeit without as much of the gross-out factor. So they either make it explicitly adult, which didn't work so well on Adult Party, or they  fail to bring anything new to a 2020 audience. It's on Comedy Central, so I'm guessing it's not JUST for kids.

Its only hope is to play to its less-talked-about feature, which is that it was a big love-letter to traditional animation and Warner Bros. cartoons. If they make it like a Looney Tunes for grown-up kids, it has a shot.

Either way, I think we can say goodbye to moments like the cast breaking into song and singing The Lord Loves a Hangin' (That's Why He Gave Us Necks).
