Not sure if there any fans of the series on here, but figured I would pass it on anyway. Especially after the huge problem with the Time Life releases, I figured that these would never see a quick release on DVD on again. But it seems they are, and unlike the limitedly available Time Life release, this one will include the entire first and second season. As well as some great extras like Audio Commentary. Hopefully these will also be uncut, unlike the episodes that aired on Nick and were on the original DVD's. I guess we'll find out when these come out on Oct. 12th!! Hopefully the price will reasonable, which I have faith it will be. Here's the news from TVShowsonDVD.com!!

Ren and Stimpy Show, The - Stimpy, you eediot!
They're putting us back on DVD! 2 whole seasons!
Posted by David Lambert - 7/16/2004

Happy Happy, Joy Joy! Ren and Stimpy fans who missed out on last year's Time-Life offerings can rejoice! Paramount has quietly let retailers know that Ren and Stimpy - The Complete 1st & 2nd Seasons will be available to sell in-stores on October 12!

Over 30 episodes will be present on this release: "Stimpy's Big Day", "The Big Shot", "Stimpy's Storybook Land: Robin Hoek", "Nurse Stimpy", "Space Madness", "The Boy Who Cried 'Rat!'", "Fire Dogs", "Stimpy's Storybook Land: The Littlest Giant", "Marooned", "Untamed World", "Black Hole", "Stimpy's Invention", "In the Army", "Powdered Toastman", "Ren's Toothache", "Big House Blues", "Out West", "Rubber Nipple Salesmen", "Sven Hoek", "Mad Dog Hoek", "Haunted House", "Big Baby Scam", "Dog Show", "Son of Stimpy", "Monkey See, Monkey Don't", "Fake Dad", "The Great Outdoors", "The Cat That Laid The Golden Hairball", "Stimpy's Fan Club", "A Visit to Anthony", and "The Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen".

For those of us who managed to get the short-lived direct sale offering before Time-Life's rights (quickly) expired, there's still good reason to also get the new set. Besides 10 episodes that weren't on the old discs ("Mad Dog Hoek", "Haunted House", "Big Baby Scam", "Son of Stimpy", "Monkey See, Monkey Don't", "Fake Dad", "The Cat That Laid The Golden Hairball", "Stimpy's Fan Club", "A Visit to Anthony", and "The Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen"), Paramount's release will also have these extras:

Neat add-ons that make it worth adding this to your collection, eh? Something else that would make it worthwhile is if these turn out to be the completely unedited versions of each short. As an example, in the episode "Powdered Toastman", a document is burned in the fireplace, making a joke out of the ignorance of "PTM" when he unwittingly shoves it in. Originally the paper was identifiable as the U.S. Constitution by the words "We The People" at the top, but on the Time-Life DVDs it is only a blank piece of paper. This is just one example of the edits this show has seen, both for broadcast and on the old DVDs. C'mon, Paramount...give us the unedited, original versions of each cartoon!

The running time is listed at 418 minutes, and pricing info isn't yet available. Nor is cover art, but we expect to have that reasonably soon. Stay tuned for more! In the meantime, recite the oath: "I do hereby promise only to watch the Ren & Stimpy Show..."

We have confirmation that these episodes will be the unedited versions. And even the banned "Man's Best Friend" episode will be included. Here's the additional news from TVShowsonDVD.com. Including the rather attractive coverart and the great price. :)

Ren and Stimpy Show, The -
Uncut or Not? The Cover Art Reveals the Answer!
Posted by David Lambert - 7/20/2004

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! Ren, the tempermental Chihuahua, and Stimpy, the naive cat, invite you to slap on a happy helmet for hours of twisted entertainment! It's the complete first 2 seasons of the cult classic series in a collectible box set. Over 30 classic, over-the-top episodes are included, such as "Man's Best Friend", the rarely-seen "banned" episode, and "Stimpy's Invention", considered by many fans as one of the best Ren & Stimpy episodes of all time

Extras on this compilation, which includes all of original creator John Kricfalusi's episodes, include:

"Ren & Stimpy: In The Beginning" Featurette
Audio Commentary from the Original Creators
Image Gallery
And more!

This 3-DVD set runs 418 minutes. There is no doubt that this will be one of the hottest, must-own smash hits of the season! So hurry up and order it right away; you can click here to place your pre-order at Amazon.com, who's selling it right now for a mere $27.99 (Amazon shows a list price of $39.98, so this represents a 30% discount!)

Hurray to Paramount for this one!
