Is the song title "Ask Dr. Stupid" a reference to R&S?

I agree-the new R&S shows are funny but not as great as the originals--which is why I don't watch them and wait for the oldies but goodies. And I just could'nt stay awy from the button! The jolly, candy-like button!!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Are Ren & Stimpy episodes available on DVD in the USA ?<br><br>If so, then maybe one of my uncles, who live in Texas and Minneapolis, and come to Holland each year, can take a few of those with them...<br><br>I taped almost every episode ever aired in Holland, but i have only one more of those tapes left, so i would love to have R & S on DVD.

Almost ALL cartoons (except for maybe Rainbow Brite and the Smurfs)  were developed for adults.  The content is generally beyond the grasp of children, who mainly get a thrill from the pretty colored characters.<br><br>I remember as a child that my grandpa would laugh his ass off at Rocky and Bullwinkle.  It was years later that I actually realized what was so funny about those 'toons.<br><br>My Favorites:<br><br>Warner Brothers (Looney Toons) -especially the old stuff;<br>Fleischer Brothers;<br>Rocky and Bullwinkle (including Fractured Fairy Tales and Sherman and Peabody);<br>Duckman!!!<br>The Simpsons<br>Ren and Stimpy

Just to be foolish and offtopic for a while but....<br><br>Image<br><br>"Button of destruction", yeah right!<br><br>Ok, let's get back to topic.<br><br>I saw Ren & stmpy when i was young, extremely, young. Somewhere between 2-3...maybe a bit older. Although I didn't remember anything from it, only something about one of them went crazy with a strange hat on his head. But, I can't watch it since I don't have the channel. <br><br>Booohooooo! :'(<br><br> -/dr_grogg<br><br>

[quote author=sir galoot link=board=legends;num=1035209392;start=45#49 date=07/31/03 at 14:01:24]<br><br>I believe Mr. Lee's case has been dismissed..<br><br>[/quote]<br><br>ASSOCIATED PRESS <br> <br>NEW YORK, July 7 — Spike TV won’t be getting spiked after all. Filmmaker Spike Lee and Viacom settled a dispute Monday that allows the media giant to rebrand its TNN network as Spike TV, ending a lawsuit that contended the new moniker was a deliberate attempt to hijack Lee’s image.<br>        LEE, DIRECTOR OF “Malcolm X” and “Do the Right Thing,” had obtained a temporary injunction in June that prevented the name change, but on Monday state Supreme Court Justice Walter Tolub lifted the order.<br>       The ruling means Viacom, which also owns CBS and MTV, can proceed immediately with plans to call the network Spike TV, the “first television network for men.” Details on the settlement were not disclosed.<br>       TNN shows reruns of “The A-Team,” “Baywatch” and “Miami Vice” and sports entertainment such as pro wrestling and “American Gladiators.” The network also carries an animated series featuring Pamela Anderson as the voice of Stan Lee’s “Stripperella,” an undercover agent who is also a stripper.<br>       Lee, whose real name is Shelton Jackson Lee, said he objected to being associated with low-brow programming.<br>       The judge initially ordered Lee to post a $500,000 bond on June 13 after he issued a temporary injunction against Viacom’s plan to rename TNN. But after a hearing two weeks ago, the judge raised the bond to $2.5 million and gave Lee until Monday to post it.<br>         The additional $2 million was never posted, and the judge vacated the injunction after both sides reached the agreement, said one of Lee’s lawyers, Terry Gross.<br>       “We have settled the case with Viacom,” Gross said. “It’s obviously good when parties settle.”<br>       During the hearing Monday, TNN vice president Kevin Kay said the network had lost millions of dollars since the injunction and stood to lose millions more if the bar continued.<br>       Viacom officials didn’t immediately return telephone calls seeking comment on the judge’s order.<br>       While the case was pending, Lee was in Los Angeles filming “Sucker-Free City” for Showtime, a cable network owned by Viacom.<br> <br>
