Get ready for the new daily show

Ren & Stimpy getting a reboot and returning to our screens…

August 5th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Just a few days ago we reported on a new documentary called Happy Happy Joy Joy which will chronicle the creation of one of TV’s most insanely brilliant animated shows, Ren & Stimpy (here) and today we’re reporting on the cartoon classic getting a reboot.

Comedy Central are ‘reimagining’ the Nickelodean and Spike series under the Nickelodeon Animation Studio banner and, as of yet, there are no further details available.

Nothing; nada; nowt.

This is coming hot on the heels of the new Beavis & Butthead series which, along with Darla spin-off Jodie, is a new animation venture for ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group president Chris McCarthy. All three shows are set to live together on Comedy Central. Beavis & Butthead is set for two new seasons and spin-offs.

McCarthy said: “Ren & Stimpy joins our rapidly expanding roster of adult animation including South Park, Beavis and Butt-Head and Clone High as we continue to reimagine our treasure chest of beloved IP for new generations.”

While I am a big fan of Ren & Stimpy, having spent much of my teens watching them on video and repeats, I seriously doubt the off the wall, sheer insantity of the original will even be repeated.

I hope to stand corrected…

And Ren & Stimpy fans in the house? Let me know your thoughts, folks…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
