Review of Fake Dad-Best episode of the series.
5 January 2008 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

Ren and Stimpy was known for being a joke show full of crude humor and inappropriate behavior for kids. Fake Dad is no exception, however, it's deeper than the other episodes. Possibly because it shows actual emotion. In this one, Ren adopts a troubled child for the week. The troubled child, Kowalski, was previously in prison and though he's 7 years old, he looks to be a huge man. Ren and Stimpy take him for various activities, and Ren actually gets to like him. The ending is somewhat touching, which was a first and only for this show. It's surprisingly sweet, and is the best episode of the series.

My rating: **** out of ****. 13 mins.
