Stimpy Show is an American animated series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon. Stimpy received baby 5 months development Komorowski to very positive reviews during its original run.
It would go on to receive widespread critical acclaim after its run, and has since developed a cult following. The show features a host of supporting characters. Some appear only in one episode, while others recur and occasionally appear in different roles. They may either be part of the storyline, or make cameo appearances with little bearing on the plot. According to animator William Wray, John Kricfalusi created the characters Ren and Stimpy in 1978 for “personal amusement” while studying at Sheridan College in Ontario, Canada. When Nickelodeon approached Kricfalusi, he presented three shows, among them a variety show titled Your Gang or Our Gang with a live action host presenting different cartoons, each cartoon parodying a different genre. The series premiered on August 11, 1991 alongside Doug and Rugrats.
Spümcø continued to produce the show for the next two years while encountering issues with Nickelodeon’s Standards and Practices. Kricfalusi described his early period with Nickelodeon as being “simple”, as he got along with Coffey, the sole executive of the program. Stimpy episodes, but Kricfalusi says the episodes stayed intact since he did a “trade” with Coffey: he would have some “really crazy” episodes in exchange for some “heart-warming” episodes. The relationship between Kricfalusi and Nickelodeon deteriorated to the point where Kricfalusi would communicate with Nickelodeon only through his lawyer.
