Synopsis- Ignoring Ren's protests Stimpy enters his poem in the Gritty Kitty Litter poetry contest in hopes of
winning $47 million and a guest spot on The Muddy Mudskipper Show. Stimpy wins and goes to Hollywood, leaving Ren behind.
Stimpy goes on to become famous and The Muddy Mudskipper Show becomes The Stimpy and Muddy Show, but Stimpy misses Ren and
vise versa. This ends up with Stimpy giving all his money and his TV contract up to return to the arms of his buddy Ren, proving
that friendship conquers all.
Cuts made by Nick- At the end of part one a microphone gets shoved into Stimpy's nostril as he's about to speak
on national television for the first time. Originally the mike was to be shoved into Stimpy's mouth, but it was deemed to
phallic by Nick and they made Spümcø change it.
Other Stuff- Another affectionate and totally on-the-mark spoof of vintage Hanna-Barbara TV animation in "The
Stimpy an Muddy Show" segment.
Look for a Jim Smith-drawn caricature of John K.'s favorite movie actor, Kirk Douglas,
literally popping out of nowhere.
Mr. Horse's tagline, "No sir, I don'd like it," according to John K., just popped
into his head when he was boarding the sequence where he first appears. "The line just came to me...it seemed like what a
horse would say if he had to smell his own dump."
