The Return of Ren & Stimpy

As of July.18th, Ren and Stimpy has returned in DVD form.
The collection is entitled "The Lost Episodes". It contains episodes from the short-lived Spike TV series: "Ren & Stimpy Adult Cartoon Party".
As the title suggests, this one ain't for kids. I saw the episodes that aired on Spike. They were a fresh change from the other animated shows on TV. But with anything new, in my opinion, there were a few things wrong with the new show.
Too many gross-out gags. Some of the animation was ugly. The mature theme of the show seemed to fill the creators with the thought of inserting any shocking gag they could think of.
True, I've only seen a handful of these new cartoons to make a proper critcism so I wouldn't mind watching the remaining shows. Especially Naked Beach Frenzy, that looks pretty good.
If your a big fan of Ren & Stimpy, pick up the new DVD collection, available now!
