Yes, that's hard to miss! At the end of last week, we had the scoop
that Ren & Stimpy
were coming back to DVD...two whole seasons' worth! The question was, "Is it cut episodes, like the Time/Life offerings, or are they uncensored for the first time on home video?"
Now, with the cover art we've revealed above, you have an answer that's hard to argue with! It will be a "happy happy, joy joy!" moment for long-suffering fans on October 12, 2004
, when they can purchase Paramount's release of John K. Presents: The Ren & Stimpy Show - The 1st and 2nd Seasons Uncut Collector's Edition Box Set
Whew! What a mouthful! Here's the copy from the studio that describes this release:
They're baaaaack! The demented cartoon that kick-started the animation craze is finally available uncut for the first time ever on DVD!
