A few years ago (when Nickelodeon Magazine was still alive and well) my pal and editor Chris Duffy asked me to pitch him some comic strip ideas...

Marland T. "Ren" Höek and Stimpson J. "Stimpy" Cat, created by John Kricfalusi, are the title characters in the Nickelodeon animated series The Ren & Stimpy Show. Kricfalusi created the characters during his stay at Sheridan College and they first appeared on film in the pilot episode "Big House Blues". Ren is a scrawny, emotionally unstable and sociopathic ”Asthma Hound” Chihuahua, and his best friend Stimpy is a dim-witted, good-natured Manx cat. The show portrays their wacky, bizarre, and often surreal adventures.


Ren Höek[edit]

Marland T. "Ren" Höek is a scrawny "Asthma-Hound" Chihuahua. Martin "Dr. Toon" Goodman of Animation World Magazine described Ren as scrawny, dyspeptic and violently psychotic, who loses his mind occasionally in a cumulative process resulting in him becoming, in Goodman's words, a "screaming klaxon, neon-pink eyes dilating into twin novae inches above his jagged, monolithic teeth."[1] Andy Meisler of The New York Times described Ren as "adventurous," "intelligent," and "emotionally brittle."[2]

Ren has a fairly long, rat-like, pink tail. However, in the first two seasons, Ren's tail constantly disappeared and was even docked by George Liquor in the season 2 episode "Dog Show", while getting Ren and Stimpy both ready for an upcoming dog show (even though Stimpy is a cat) although it continued to appear afterwards in the episode, as well as episodes afterwards. After season 2, Ren's tail had a rare form of continuity throughout the show, not even appearing at all in most episodes. In most of the episodes, Ren's ambition is to develop huge pectoral muscles. In the season 3 episode "Ren's Pecs", that is accomplished with the help of Stimpy. His wrestling name is "Mad Dog Höek".

Kricfalusi originally voiced Ren in a manner that he describes as "a bad imitation of Peter Lorre."[2]Billy West said that he auditioned to play Ren; the creators of the series believed that having West—who was also voicing the title character in fellow charter Nicktoon Doug at the time—voice both Ren and Stimpy would give him too large a workload.[3] West voiced Ren after Nickelodeon fired Kricfalusi; Kricfalusi would return for the TNN episodes and unaired episodes of The Ren & Stimpy Show. Chris Edgerly would voice the character in the game Nicktoons MLB. In the pilot episode, Pierre Decelles provided Ren's signature diabolical laughter, while West performed Ren's laugh in the series. His catchphrase is "You eediot", and he also uses variations of "What is your problem, you sick little monkey?", which is similar to a quote by Lorre in The Maltese Falcon: "You... you imbecile. You bloated idiot. You stupid fat-head, you."

Kricfalusi complained about Nickelodeon executives requesting that Ren have "a softer side".[1]Bill Wray said that Ren was his favorite character to write for; Wray described Ren as "fun" because "you can make him mean." In 1993 he added that "It drives me crazy when I tell people I work on the show and they always say, 'Make Ren meaner.'"[4]


Stimpson J. Cat is a fat red and white, Manx cat, with a blue nose, purple eyelids, no tail, paws with gloves and four fingers that have fingernails, human-style buttocks, flat human feet, four wiggly toes and a brain the size of a peanut. He is portrayed as intelligent enough in some episodes to be a chef or a scientist and sometimes as nonsensically stupid. Martin "Dr. Toon" Goodman of Animation World Magazine described Stimpy as "obese" and "brain-damaged."[1] Andy Meisler of The New York Times described Stimpy as "bosom," "barrel-chested" and "good-natured."[2]

Stimpy's trademark facial expression is a blissfully ignorant smile with his tongue hanging out. When he gets excited, he says his catchphrase, "Oh, Joy!", or simply "Jooooooy". Stimpy is named after an art school classmate of Kricfalusi, whose nickname was "Stimpy Cadogen" ("Killer Cadoogen" was Stimpy's pseudonym in several episodes and in a few others he is referred to as Stimpleton Cadogen). West said that he based Stimpy's voice on an "amped up" Larry Fine of the Three Stooges.[3] West described Stimpy as one of his favorite characters.[5]

Stimpy likes to create destructive electronic devices. Andy Meisler of The New York Times says he feels a fixation for "sensory pleasures of fresh kitty litter".[2]

Wray described Stimpy as his favorite character to draw. Wray said that Stimpy does not have "a huge range of emotion."[4]

West declined to voice Stimpy in the Ren & Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon because he believed that the series was not funny and that voicing Stimpy in it would damage his career.[3] Consequently, Eric Bauza would instead voice the character and reprised the voice role in the Nicktoons MLB video game.


In a 1993 interview by a comics magazine, Bill Wray stated that he believes that Kricfalusi created Ren and Stimpy around 1978 for Kricfalusi and his friends' personal amusement in college; Kricfalusi attended Sheridan College in Canada. Wray said that he had initially "forgotten about" the characters. When Nickelodeon requested a new series, Kricfalusi assembled a presentation called "Your Gang", similar to a children's show with a live action host presenting various cartoons. Each cartoon parodied a genre, and Ren & Stimpy parodied the "cat and dog" genre. Vanessa Coffey, the producer of the show, said that she did not like the general idea, but that she liked the characters.[4]

Kricfalusi originally created Ren and Stimpy as the pets of George Liquor and Jimmy The Idiot Boy.[6]

Kricfalusi received inspiration for Ren from a black and white photograph of a chihuahua in a sweater next to a woman's feet.[7] The original photograph is called "New York City, 1946" and was taken by Elliott Erwitt.[8] He received inspiration for Stimpy's design by a Tweety Bird cartoon called A Gruesome Twosome where the cats in the animation had big noses.[8]


From its start, there were hints at the characters' sexuality. During the Spümcø years of the show on Nickelodeon, a running gag would have Ren and Stimpy engaging in something intimate (such as Stimpy bathing Ren during the episode "Nurse Stimpy"), with Stimpy assuring Ren that "no one will know" about the private and rather embarrassing encounter, only to pan towards a window in the room and showing several characters (including Mr. Horse) witnessing the event. The episode "Svën Höek" shows Stimpy having a romantic affair with Ren's cousin Svën, including an intimate "private" moment in Stimpy's litterbox and scrawling "Svën ♥ Stimpy" all over the walls. This was dropped after Spümcø was fired from the show.

Kricfalusi discussed the sexuality of the characters in a January 28, 1997 interview with the San Francisco Examiner, confirming their sexuality, saying: "Totally. In Ren's case, it's not completely by choice. He'd rather have a beautiful human woman if he could get away with it. Since he can't, Stimpy's easy. Stimpy's madly in love with Ren."[9]

Jeffery P. Dennis said in the journal article "The Same Thing We Do Every Night: Signifying Same-Sex Desire in Television Cartoons" that Ren and Stimpy are within a world where "gay identities cannot exist," so the series portrays same-sex romantic desire as "anomalous and perverse." Dennis added that the critics of the series "made much" of the gay connotations of Ren and Stimpy, such as their sharing of a house and bed, their reminiscing of a wedding, and Stimpy's "giving birth" to flatulence.[10]: 135  Dennis said that Ren is "socially and sexually" the aggressor in the relationship; in addition he says that some episodes portray Stimpy as "a stereotypical 1950s wife" who cleans, cooks food, and irons Ren's underwear. Dennis stated that the aspects "may adhere to a reading of a sexual relationship." Dennis concludes that the relationship between Ren and Stimpy is a parody of heterosexual relationships rather than an actual gay or an actual romantic relationship. Dennis adds that in other situations Ren and Stimpy are "read more appropriately" as coworkers, enemies, friends, and house pets. Dennis argues that Yogi Bear and Boo-Boo are more consistently gay than Ren and Stimpy.[10] Dennis also stated that the scenes of Ren and Stimpy as a couple emulate a heterosexual couple instead of being a union between two men.[10]: 136 

In a response to Dennis' statements, Martin Goodman of Animation World Network said that Kricfalusi had outed Ren and Stimpy as gay and adds that while the Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" had not yet been released and therefore Ren and Stimpy had not been explicitly portrayed as gay, Ren and Stimpy would qualify as a consistently gay couple since they share a bed, live as partners, discuss a planned wedding, and had a "child," with the child being flatulence.[11]

How to Draw A Chihuahua with a cute look

Learn how to draw a chihuahua and make sure that this fun animal is well represented! Although chihuahuas are not always loved because they are noisy at times, this character won't disturb anyone and duplicating it should be quite easy. All you have to do is follow the drawing lesson below and make sure that you are adding all the right elements using the illustrated version.

This cute chihuahua (as seen below) is filled with a light brown color and the bow on the head is colored in purple. Ears are larger than a standard dog and the body is smaller and narrower. Now that we know exactly what we should do to create a cool chihuahua, let's begin this lesson!

How to draw a chihuahua

Step 1

You can start by adding a large oval shape to form the head. See how the bottom is flatter than the top and created from a large curved line? For the body, you can add a small rectangle. Remember that this is a small dog, so don't draw a large body. A larger head also increase the cuteness of the cartoon illustration.

Step 2

The legs are mostly made from curved lines. Look at the template below for guidelines on how to place these lines. The back legs should be higher and smaller to create a little bit of perspective. Once again, make sure that the head is larger than the rest of the body (including the legs).

Step 3

Cool! Now let's add the ears using large triangles made with curved lines. Remember that ears must be large and wide to increase the effect that the chihuahua has a small body and large head. Eyes can also be drawn using large circular shapes while the nose is represented by a small oval shape.

Step 4

The bow on the head of the cartoon animal is made from an oval shape and two small triangles. Pupils are created from circles and they must be large and not quite in the center of the eye. The tail is tiny and illustrated from a small triangle.

Step 5

Duplicate the shape of the ears to create a thinner line inside each of them. For the mouth, you can use a simple curved line. Another small line can be used to connect the mouth and the nose.

Spent a penny, - she waved away. - You'd better tell me this, are you going to a party or not. The girl desperately did not want to go to the Halloween party. Alcohol, a noisy group of guys, cigarettes, loud music, lights that hit the eyes. All this was not for the shy Dara.
