- UNCUT Animation Madness with John Kricfalusi

You probably remember Ren and Stimpy, the huge cult series from 1990 that only lasted a few months before being pulled by the television broadcasters. In this special retrospective - especially selected in consultation with the filmmaker - we look back at Kricfalusi's films. IAF goes bad as we meet characters such as Jimmy The Idiot Boy, He-Hog The Atomic Pig and Weekend Pussy Hunt. And while we're at it, we'll show a couple of Ren & Stimpy episodes that you won't have seen before (one of them is brand new and doesn't sound like it's gonna get on the TV screen in its current form). To say this is a program of anarchic madness, irreverent taboo busting and visceral body-part doodling is a bit like saying Ren is just a cartoon dog. Buckle up! "I always try to find what the taboos are, and I'll try to break them. That's part of my personality. But that's not what holds it together. If anything characterises my style, it's the intense emotional content of the characters' interactions. That's what I try to do more than anything else, to make the characters really believe in their motives" John Kricfalusi 2001.
