Remember how weird Ren and Stimpy was?

It was really weird. Every episode was full of adult themes, transparent innuendos, and frequently disturbing animation that got it a lot of attention from those groups of concerned citizens that show up every couple of years to ban a violent video game but it is easy to forget what made Ren and Stimpy really special. Nerdwriter made a great video detailing how Ren and Stimpy was different from everything else on the Nickelodeon slate as well as the animation market and how it managed to influence future Nicktoons. You probably won't want to go out and watch Ren and Stimpy again (as an adult I still find it hard to stomach) but it will give you a lot of respect for the trailblazers.
