If you've been visiting various Ren & Stimpy fan sites you may have heard that there are cuts to the episodes in the box set. We contacted Paramount to get the story, and they contacted John K and sent us his response:
Subject: "RS DVD was produced by John K. Buy It you eediots!"
I'm as surprised as you are that there are still some edits in the cartoons. Blame Nickelodeon years ago! Don't blame the producers of the DVD.
We put back every scene that I was aware was missing. Nick must have cut more scenes out long after I stopped watching the show.
But, we put a lot of cool stuff back in that no one ever saw-scenes from Sven Hoek that never aired-George Liquor's bobbed tail in Dog Show-hey all of Man's Best Friend!
We also did lots of commentaries over the cartoons and there are interviews with me and Eddie Fitzgerald, there is original artwork.
Buy this damn thing. I put in as much cool stuff as I could for you. Buy it and maybe Spike will order new episodes!
Maybe I will consult with you to restore the episodes you found that still has cuts and we'll put the missing scenes on a website for you, or run them ouncut on Spkie.
If every show is not completely intact it's because long ago Nick misplaced or lost the originals, but I restored the ones I knew had cuts, ok?
So if you review the set on Amazon, say it's great and and talk about the good stuff first! Then you can mention that there are still some edits, but it's definitely worth getting!
Maybe we can have a chat about it tomorrow night if someone contacts me to set it up.
