    Ladies and Gentleman Inc, presents "Happy Happy Joy Joy: The Ren & Stimpy Story"

    Ladies and Gentleman Inc, presents "Happy Happy Joy Joy: The Ren & Stimpy Story"

    Warning: This episode may ruin your childhood. If you grew up in the ’90’s like we did, you’ve probably seen an episode of two of “Ren & Stimpy,” and if not, you’ve definitely heard of it. It was the biggest cartoon of it’s time, known for it’s outrageous content, original artwork, and grotesque images that kids loved! By all appearances things couldn’t be better for “Ren & Stimpy.” Behind the scenes it was a different story though. A dictator, grueling hours, and loads of controversy. This is “Happy Happy Joy Joy: The Ren & Stimpy Story.”
