Nicktoons Network will present all three seasons of the original series. The show is scheduled begin July 30 at 9:30 pm ET and will air regularly weekdays at 11:30 pm ET and weekends from 11:00 a.m. 12:00 pm ET with two back-to-back episodes.
Were thrilled to add the cult classic, REN & STIMPY, to our air, said Keith Dawkins, vp/gm, Nicktoons. The show is timeless because it combines great style, great humor and a truckload of attitude. We're excited about bringing this original Nicktoon back to our audience. REN & STIMPY represents the type of bold, experimental, creator-driven animation that Nicktoons and our Nicktoons studio is all about.
