The Simpsons was already commenting on its waning popularity in 1994: "When was the last time you heard anyone talk about Ren & Stimpy?"
I personally think it would be incredibly fitting and cathartic if this reboot were canceled in favor of a "Camp Weedonwantcha" series. Too bad that probably won't happen.
Beavis & Butthead, Clone High and now Ren & Stimpy. I wonder if a revival/reboot of Kappa Mikey might be on the horizon as well?
Okay I don't want to totally deflate and totally switch gears on the topic but... how is Mao Mao Heroes of Pure Heart being treated badly by Cartoon Network? Like they constantly played that ad for it's last run of new episodes of season one for a month straight and announced a season 2 that's obviously coming to the main network either later this year or next as Mao Mao is a show they are still showing... granted only like a half hour of it a day but to CN "we literally only play seven shows per day" logic that's actually still pretty good for something still not in it's second season yet so it's doing fine and working well on CN.
Wow, an adult-oriented version of Ren & Stimpy with vulgar humor, language and visuals? What a novel idea!
...seriously, though, didn't they learn the first time? I mean they canceled after three episodes aired. Three. Episodes. Well, four if you count the fake episode that was just "Man's Best Friend and the uncut "Big House Blues" pilot paired together.
I'd personally wait for an official statement, or after a year passes with no further news. So many projects get announced only for them to never materialize.
