Great news, ’90s kids! Following on the heels of a Beavis and Butt-Head revival, Comedy Central announced today that it’s also bringing back another classic cartoon series, Ren & Stimpy – you know, the lovable (but often disgusting) Chihuahua and fat-cat duo.
We’re not sure how well this “reimagining” will measure up to the original episodes (series creator John Kricfalusi likely won’t be involved due to the disturbing allegations made against him), but staples such as Powdered Toast Man and Mr. Horse are sure to make an appearance.
“I want to thank our partners at Nick Animation as we re-imagine these iconic characters with a new creative team,” said Nina L. Diaz, President of Content and Chief Creative Officer for ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group.”
“We are excited to reinvent this iconic franchise with a new creative team and our partners at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio,” said Chris McCarthy, President of ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group. “Ren & Stimpy joins our rapidly expanding roster of adult animation including South Park, Beavis and Butt-Head and Clone High as we continue to reimagine our treasure chest of beloved IP for new generations.”
