    Variety:

    Comedy Central announced Wednesday that it has ordered a revival of the ’90s animated series. The move comes amid a significant push into adult animation at ViacomCBS’ entertainment and youth group, which comprises most of the company’s cable brands and is headed by Chris McCarthy. The unit also on Wednesday revealed that Grant Gish, a veteran of Marvel Studios and Fox Animation, would join as head of adult animation. […]

    The new version will be adult-oriented. It will not, however, involve “Ren & Stimpy” creator John Kricfalusi, whom a source tells Variety will have no creative input into and will receive no financial remuneration from the new series. Kricfalusi was accused in a 2018 Buzzfeed article of sexually abusing teenage girls.

    At first I was like "BAD IDEA" but then I thought, "well if this gets John K. angry as well as employs talented artists, the good may outway the bad." FUCK THAT GUY.

    There was a few segments on this show that I was entertained by. Most notably the horse character. “No sir, I don’t like it.”

    But ultimately this show was probably my least favorite of all the nick toons. It was just so fucking gross.

    Ren and Stimpy only works in the 90s and being grossed out at 10 years old but kept watching.
