Happy Happy Joy Joy: The Ren and Stimpy Story Image

Help complete the indie doc celebrating Ren and Stimpy, the pop-cultural phenomenon that forever changed television & animation.

This is an Indiegogo project to bring you the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at the cartoon revolution that was Ren & Stimpy.

“If you were a child of the ’90’s or have seen Adult Swim, you have experienced the subversive influence of Ren & Stimpy.

On an upstart cable TV network for just 4 1/2 seasons, Nickelodeon’s groundbreaking cartoon shocked parents, thrilled kids and killed — in a comedy sense — everyone from art students to stock brokers.

The departure of John Kricfalusi, the show’s creator, has been well reported. What has largely been ignored is Ren & Stimpy’s impact on comedy and popular culture. Because of John’s exodus, many of those on the show refused to speak publicly about R&S for the last 25 years. But now, due to persistence and the passage of time, dozens of the Ren & Stimpy artists, writers, directors, producers and executives have shared their experiences and insights for the first time.
