Yeah, I was just thinking that.

Following Nick's continuing trend of revivals, Ren & Stimpy is coming back.

Yes, again.

Thankfully, it will just be a theatrical short that will air before the next SpongeBob movie, not a TV special like the others. Considering how far downhill the show went post-Spumco, I'm glad Nick is playing it safe.

Hey the Games Era is Season 1 and 2-quality when compared to the Neo-Spumco era.

If they focus on the slapstick and exaggerated animation that characterized R&S at it's best and abstain from the uncomfortable, mean-spirited obscenities that plagued it at it's worst, then it could be a fun short. I just pray they don't give John K. free reign to do whatever he wants like in APS. His unfiltered sense of humor is too sick and depraved for anyone else to enjoy.

Well, if it's being shown before the SpongeBob movie, I doubt that he'll get free reign again.

I only looked at some of this interview, but if I remember what I've read before, he was doing storyboards for a R&S short to be a part of the second SpongeBob movie, but that was scrapped. I think now is time for a short, with all the current revivals happening.
Life is not about the second chances. It's about a little mouse and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is.

APC is proof that he should never be in complete control of the characters again. Bringing him in for simple shorts is probably a good idea.

To think he's tried to peddle the idea that Viacom forced him to go so hogwild on Adult Party Cartoon, which is laughable because the other short-lived cartoons on there weren't even half as nasty as it was.
