Bob Camp says this is the first he's heard of it.

When I first saw this article, I couldn't believe my eyes. It looks like Comedy Central is beginning to focus on nostalgia since they announced the Beavis and Butthead revival. I would say that this version would cater more to an adult audience since the show won't be airing on Nickelodeon.

When I first saw the thread's title, I thought it was a joke or misleading, but it's apparently true. I'm honestly really surprised. I figured that Ren and Stimpy would be too much PR poison for Viacom to touch again. I know that they aired episodes on The Splat even when the allegations first came out, but making a reboot is a different story. It just kind of feels uncomfortable to me. At least John K won't be involved and he'll hopefully won't get any royalties from the new series either.

I do wonder if part of the reason why this reboot was given the greenlite was because Comedy Central needs more new content and it might be awhile before they can safely film anything outside of their talk shows at their hosts' homes. My Dad might be excited over this news since he really enjoyed the original series. Although he often blames Nickelodeon for ruining it by firing John K and he'd say this even after learning about what he did, so that is unsettling for me in its own right.

Maybe this reboot will be much better than that infamous Adult Party Cartoon.

I hope we have some of the other aspects of the original show like the parody commercials, ask Dr. Stupid, and Powdered Toast Man (though it wouldnt be the same with Gary Owens being dead).

Didn't the Adult Party show bomb? Why is this going to be a thing?
That was from John K having too much creative control. Here, he's not involved. Granted, the absence of Bob Camp is questionable, but no John K is a good start.

Powdered Toast Man (though it wouldnt be the same with Gary Owens being dead).

Corey Burton voiced him in a video game from almost 10 years ago. He could reprise the role.

This is probably the only time where no one wouldn't mind not having the original creator's involvement in a reboot.

Bob Camp feared this day will come and would be shocked if he was asked back:

Between this and Bevis and Butthead, Comedy Central is trying to reinvent themselves in the animation game ( they still rely heavily on South Park compare to their other cartoon programs, looks like they're going for popular brand names that will last longer).

Isn’t he still working at Nickelodeon for SpongeBob though?

Apparently, in addition to the DreamWorks incarnation of Trolls... Disney Channel aired the DiC one?

Hey guys, I'm back! Been gone for almost a year from having a lot on my plate but now I have more free time. I hope everyone here is making it through these tough and difficult times.
Today marks the 20th Year Anniversary of when Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask was released in North America. Majora's Mask was the second game from the franchise I played and certainly fits with the Halloween theme.
Why did Adult Swim air the Family Guy episode Wasted Talent as part of the Halloween special?
