Peet (as the poodle)
George Liqour enters Ren & Stimpy in the all-breed dog show.
Prejudging is fierce, and many contestants don't meet the high standards of Mr. Horse. Prospects for Ren & Stimpy seem
good, but George is a mean stage mother. George eventually enters himself and wins first prize.
Cuts Made by Nickelodeon-
This was the first cartoon edited by Nickelodeon
themselves after firing Spümcø. It aired two months after it was intended because Nick decided to make some of their own edits.
John K. refused to make the major cuts and revisions Nick requested so Nick shelved it along with "Man's Best Friend", and
later edited it themselves after the firing.
The 'Liqour' in George Liqour's name was
bleeped out in fear that kids might think it was actually 'Lick her' rather than Liqour. His name was removed from above his
head when he says it. And a piece of static artwork, where George is show to have a vestigal tail sticking up out of his butt,
was altered because Standards and Practices thought the stump was supposed to be an erection. Finally Spike TV showed
Behind the Scenes Stuff-
Nickelodeon hated George Liqour, they thought he
was too mean, they demanded that all the funny gags be replaced with "something less funny." (No kidding, I did not make that
up) And in a note sent to Spümcø on March 17, 1992 Nick execs said "This whole nipple twisting sequence has got to go."
The owner of the yappy poodle is a caracture of cameraman David Koenigsberg.
