This encyclopedia puts all the shows in perspective with bumpers and cartoons. A bumper is a short commercial spoof or a short piece. All times are Eastern U.S.A. times unless specified. All Trademarks are owned by Nickelodeon, MTV Networks, and Viacom (C) 1991, 1992, 1993. This guide was known as "The Ren And Stimpy Extra" but I think "Encyclopedia" is a better explanation of this guide. It is a depository for miscellaneous facts about Ren And Stimpy and its showings. Anything not covered by the FAQ or Not-So-Official-Guide is covered here--if not, E-mail and request it from me. Posting Information: This will be posted along with the other Ren And Stimpy documents kept by me (FAQ, guide, and encyclopedia--not comics or ftp site) on the net every two weeks. Look for it around Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights. FTP Information: This guide has been uploaded to aug3.augsburg.edu and is updated fairly often. If you want more on Ren And Stimpy, please consult the R&S FAQ and/or Episode Guide, both posted on alt.tv.ren-n-stimpy. It was kept by Nick Sayer at mrapple@quack.sac.ca.us, but I have taken over for him. E-mail me at ngsippel@miavx3.mid.muohio.edu with your comments, suggestions, compliments, gripes, and/or additions. E-mail ren-n-stimpy@aug3.augsburg.edu for the guides; if you want more information about the listserver, consult the FAQ. If you want to ftp them, check out aug3.augsburg.edu under /files/text_files. Copyright Acknowledgment: Before the Encyclopedia continues, I want to acknowledge the copyrights and trademarks of Nickelodeon, Viacom, and all the other companies which are mentioned in this document and the other two (FAQ, Guide). The purpose of the R&S documents (FAQ, Guide, Encyclopedia) are to inform people, and the documents are kept in my spare time and are kept for no profit. Site File Access: This document, if kept on a BBS or a FTP site, must be kept in a public access section and be available for free; otherwise, the site/BBS may not carry this document or the other two R&S documents. September 25, 1992...John K. gets fired from "The Ren And Stimpy Show." According to the L.A. Times, Nick has fired John Kricfalusi because of tardiness with the new episodes. Loyal fellow artists left with him (at least over twenty), so Nick has moved production to a new studio to be headed up by Bob Camp, a former partner at Spumco. Apparently, John K. had it with Nick about censorship; four of his cartoons were nixed. Further updates will be added A.S.A.P. and non-Spumco shows will be marked thereon. November 1992...John K. has been offered a position as "Creative Consultant," but he plans to continue working on his future feature-length movie with "The World's Most Manly Man." John K. has announced he will not be doing Ren Hoek anymore. :( Nick has banned "Dog Show," "Man's Best Friend," "Powdered Toast Man," and "Out West." Nick has, since the last update, kept playing repeats of the show including variations of cartoons for shows but will start new ones bi-weekly on November 7, 1992. Nick is still playing the edited version of "Big House Blues." Maybe "Sven Hoek" is a prediction about Nick's mis-management of R&S; they may go to heck if Nick's not careful. (I kind of hope so; let John K. buy them back for a song and let them come back better than ever! Joy!) December 1992..."Game Productions" is working with Spumco to make the rest of the second season shows. Their emblem has a picture of Stimpy in a painter's cap. At this moment, details are sketchy about this. One of the people on this group claims to work for an animation company that is working on "Stimpy's First Fart" (aka "Stimpy's First Trouser Cough" and "Son of Stimpy"); the main action (in this 30 minute cartoon) is about R&S running around the world searching for Stimpy's sentient fart. John K., on the other hand, is hard at work putting together his next project. He has several deals including one with FOX for a show about Spumco's official mascot "Jimmy The 'Hapless' Boy" or unofficial mascot "George Liquor." My vote goes for a show about George Liquor. Since John K. has retained the rights to George, Nick cannot say his name on the air or stop him from doing the show. February 1993...According to "You Filthy Worms" By Richard Gehr in Village Voice magazine, John K. got George Liquor because Nick didn't want its image ruined by him. John K. calls Games Productions (now known as Games Animation) "milkmen" because they and Nick are trying to "milk" out as much Ren And Stimpy as possible; this explains why Stimpy is in a milkman's costume in the logo. (Besides, Nick already has the trademark for Milkman by Nick-At-Nite's commercials.) According to net sources, rumor still has it that John K. is working for FOX; official word is that John K. is making three new shows for the fall. April 1993...Some of the first non-John K. cartoons have been aired. They are funny at times, but without him, they aren't the same. Ren and Mr. Horse are both played by Billy West. Two of John K.'s shows for the fall will be "George Liquor" and "He Hog." MTV played a surprise rotation of the second season shows, except the three most recent cartoons; its finale was a second airing of "Son Of Stimpy" on the last night of the rotation. It seems, after going through my list of aired episodes, that Nick premieres a new show every three weeks, and during sweeps month, it tends to follow up a three-week wait with a new episode one or two weeks sooner than the usual rotation. May 1993...Nick is starting to finish the rest of the season by playing new episodes. Hopefully, the season will end soon so we all can reLAx!! :) Summer 1993...R&S Desert. No new shows have aired since May, but thankfully, "Stimpy's Fan Club" and "Visit To Anthony" have been repeated on SNICK and Sunday Morning. "Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen" has yet to be replayed. Videos are scheduled to come out soon! (See FAQ for more information on it.) October 1993...Billy West came to Miami University on October 6, 1993!! New episodes are coming November 20! Further details about the speech are in a post which is looking for a ftp site currently. November/December 1993...The new episodes are out with mixed reviews. Let's give Bob Camp a chance!

From Paul William Chudobiak (umchudo1@ccu.umanitoba.ca): Much Music's Ren And Stimpy-athon Information ============================================= This information comes from our weekly satellite guide (OnSat) One thing that I don't understand, is that one weekly guide say that the Ren and Stimpy-athon is on Aug. 7th, and the next guide says that it's on August 14th. Both guides are from OnSat, maybe the Ren and Stimpy-athon are on both Saturdays! (Joy!) It's probably just a printing error, and it might just be on the 14th, but keep your eyes peeled anyway this Saturday. Here are the times for the various shows (All times are for the Eastern time zones) (Editor's Numbers) 12:00 p.m. Stimpy's Big Day/The Big Shot 3 12:30 p.m. Robin Hoek/Nurse Stimpy 6 11:55 p.m. Space Madness/The Boy Who Cried Rat! 2 1:25 p.m. Fire Dogs/The Littlest Giant 5 1:50 p.m. Marooned/Untamed World 4 2:20 p.m. Black Hole/Stimpy's Invention 7 2:45 p.m. In The Army/Powdered Toast Man 8 3:15 p.m. Ren's Toothache/Big House Blues 9 3:40 p.m. Out West/Rubber Nipple Salesmen 10 4:10 p.m. Sven Hoek and Three Shorts 14 (a or b?) 4:35 p.m. Haunted House/Mad Dog Hoek 15 5:05 p.m. Big Baby Scam/Dog Show 16 5:30 p.m. Son Of Stimpy 19 6:00 p.m. AlMusic "Weird" Al takes over MuchMusic Similar to MTV's AlTV (Good call Toastman!) The whole thing then repeats at 8:00 p.m. with AlMusic repeated at 2:00 a.m. The guide for the 14th has the exact same show listing, so I think the way it's posted is the way it's gonna be. I'm just not sure if it's on the 7th, or the 14th, or both. I hope it's both! =OP For those with satellite dishes, here's how to get MuchMusic. MuchMusic is located on the Canadian Anik E2 satellite, transponder/ channel 6. Anik E2 is located beside Spacenet 4. Here is the location with respect the other satellites... G3 T301 (or T1) G6 S4 E2 E1 M1 T303 (or T3) ^^ || Right here! Now, because MuchMusic broadcasts in stereo, you'll have to change the audio frequency (or subcarrier) to tune in the audio. The frequencies are.. 5.41 Left Channel 6.17 Right Channel On some satellite recievers you can select the type of stereo, if you can, make sure it's on Discrete Stereo. Also, MuchMusic has a mono audio frequency, it's 6.67. I don't know if it works, I am always listening to MuchMusic in stereo. =O) Well, that's it. If anyone has any questions, either E-Mail me or post it up on the newsgroup and I'll answer it there. -Paul Chudobiak E-Mail: umchudo1@ccu.umanitoba.ca ------------------------------------------ -- New Zealand Showings Of Ren & Stimpy -- -- With Other Miscellaneous Notes -- ------------------------------------------ Note: This whole section has been written by Kerrin. All dates for this section are in the form day/month/year. Thank you, Kerrin, for writing this up! FORWARD ------- From Kerrin Rhys Jones : Sorry I've taken a while to get back to you with this - I dug through some old issues of The Listener and discovered R&S have actually been lurking on our screens in little watched timeslots for a lot longer than anyone seems to realise. I've written up all the details I have at the moment - I'd like to give you episode listings for some of the earlier stuff, but have been unable to find anyone with such a thing. I emailed the two NZers who you have included comments from in the current version of the FAQ, asking if either of them had any more details, but I haven't heard back from them (and it's been a while)... So here you go... It's all I can come up with at the moment, really... Feel free to edit, chop, cut and paste as you see fit, include as much or as little in the FAQ as you like... I'll let you know if I find out anything further or if R&S return... Spot you later, Kerrin. =================================================================== THE REN AND STIMPY SHOW in New Zealand The Ren and Stimpy Show gained widespread popularity when it screened for a while in a 6:00pm Saturday time-slot. It was quite well publicised - a full-page article in the 17/4/93 issue of The Listener (NZ TV magazine) did the usual "it's gross, it's disgusting, but it's popular" bit and gave the background on the Nickelodeon/Kricfalusi breakup. This was the first time the show had been publicised widely, and the first time most viewers (including myself) discovered it. However, checking through old issues of The Listener, it appears that Ren and Stimpy had actually been on our screens for quite a while before gaining their widespread popularity... It seems that R&S was first screened on WHAT NOW, a Saturday morning kids show. R&S was listed as running for 10 to 15 minutes on the following dates: 14/11/92 10:00-10:15am 21/11/92 10:00-10:10am 28/11/92 10:00-10:10am 05/12/92 10:05-10:15am It seems that 05/12/92 was the last WHAT NOW for 1992. The next week, Ren and Stimpy resurfaced in a 4:30-5:00pm Saturday timeslot, where they ran on the following dates: 12/12/92 4:30-5:00pm 19/12/92 4:30-5:00pm 26/12/92 4:30-5:00pm 02/01/93 4:30-5:00pm 09/01/93 4:30-5:00pm 16/01/93 4:30-5:00pm 23/01/93 4:30-5:00pm 30/01/93 4:30-5:00pm 06/02/93 4:30-5:00pm I believe Show #16 ("The Big Baby Scam" and "Dog Show") and Show #14 ("Sven Hoek") were both shown in this run, among others. WHAT NOW came back on 06/02/93, screening 8:00am-12:00pm on Saturdays. Once again R&S was included in it, from 10:35-11:00am. 06/02/93 10:35-11:00am 13/02/93 10:35-11:00am 20/02/93 10:35-11:00am 27/02/93 10:35-11:00am 06/03/93 10:35-11:00am 13/03/93 10:35-11:00am And then finally, Ren and Stimpy made it to a decent timeslot and got a bit of publicity. Here's the episode listing of R&S from their 6:00pm Saturday run. Episodes are titled as in the Ren and Stimpy Extra, with some comments on cuts where we know they've been made - there are bound to be many others. 17/04/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #3 24/04/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #6 (Missing PTM Bumper) 01/05/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #2 08/05/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #5 15/05/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #4 22/05/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #7 29/05/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #8 05/06/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #10 (Missing "The Hangin' Song" from Out West) 12/06/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #16 19/06/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #19 26/06/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #9 03/07/93 6:00-6:30pm Show #12 (Haunted House ends with "...end it all") Then with no warning or explanation, R&S disappeared from our screens to be replaced by DEEP WATER HAVEN, a new 26-part NZ drama series, (or at least what passes for drama around here...) Ren and Stimpy have not been sighted on our screens since. An article "Censored!" on TV censorship in the 7/8/93 issue of The Listener talked about the cutting of various TV programs by TVNZ. R&S got the following mention, referring to the cutting of "Haunted House": Like THE SIMPSONS, the shamelessly subversive REN AND STIMPY has felt the censor's knife for it's deliberate battering at the taste barrier. A cutting notice from June orders the following: Delete "I couldn't even scare a paranoid schizophrenic". Delete suicide scenes. Delete "There's only one thing left to do, I'm going to end it all", "Sweet Lord No" (Spike shown through head), "You can't do that ... Do this" (A bottle of poison handed over and swallowed, followed by writhing and death.) ===================================================================== ------------------------------------------ -- Australian Showings Of Ren & Stimpy -- -- With Other Miscellaneous Notes -- ------------------------------------------ These airings are from Network Ten's Big Breakfast from Darren O'Shaughnessy (darren@cs.anu.edu.au). The first two weeks were Monday through Friday, and now it is shown every Monday. I edited the format slightly to agree with date stamps and episode numbers to match my episode numbers. This information was accurate as of September 1, 1993. ** The times are Australian time. ** Date Time Num Notes ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- July 5, 1993 7:30am # 3 (Series Premiere) July 6, 1993 7:30am # 6 July 7, 1993 7:30am # 2 July 8, 1993 7:30am # 5 July 9, 1993 7:30am # 4 July 12, 1993 7:30am # 7 July 13, 1993 7:30am # 8 July 14, 1993 7:30am # 9 July 15, 1993 7:30am # 10 July 16, 1993 7:30am # 14 (a or b?)

I fear R&S may be temporarily suspended Down Under, but I live in hope. You Eediot! is getting airplay on JJJ, mainly thanks to Maynard F# Crabbes. The album is only available on import here, however.
