Hero Overview

You Eediot!
~ Ren Höek

Ren Höek is one of the main characters from the controversial Canadian American Nickelodeon series The Ren & Stimpy Show. He is one of two main protagonists in the series and the Adult Party Cartoon spin-off series. However, he can sometimes be more of a villainous protagonist than an actual hero.

He was voiced by John Kricfalusi from 1991-1993, and was later voiced by Billy West from 1993-1996. John K. would portray Ren again in 2003 in the Adult Party Cartoon, While Chris Edgerly voices the character in Nicktoons MLB.

Appearance

Ren is a scrawny 17-year old, creepy-looking, Hungarian asthma-hound chihuahua with a fairly long, rat-like, pink tail (which disappears constantly to the point of it not being seen in the later series).

Personality

Ren is portrayed as being greedy, insane, delusional, paranoid, intolerant, violent and insecure (in short, mentally unstable). Whenever Ren's upset he lashes out his anger on his best friend Stimpy usually by simply slapping him in the face, or by brutally beating him up and treats Stimpy like a School Bully. Ren's most famous personality trait, however, is his short and violent temper because Stimpy keeps irritating him which caused Ren to go completely, dangerously insane.

Biography

He has a Swedish cousin named Svën Höek, a plump, idiotic chihuahua who is very similar to Stimpy. In the Spümcø era of The Ren and Stimpy Show and Adult Party Cartoon, Ren was voiced by John Kricfalusi in "a bad imitation of Peter Lorre." In the Games Animation era of the Nickelodeon series, Ren was voiced by Billy West using a combination of Burl Ives, Kirk Douglas, and a slight "south of the border accent", after John Kricfalusi and the others at Spümcø were fired. West also did Ren's maniacal laughter, throughout the series (including when John Kricfalusi did Ren's voice).

Ren personality remained unchanged for years. But one thing never changed: he is crazy, insane, neurotic that even in extreme cases can become totally a rabid beast (as seen in the APC episode "Ren Seeks Help"). His antagonistic role can range from a simple pull of a real villain, and that shows in many episodes from the original version as "Best Man Friend" to the most recent "Ren Seeks Help". If the antagonistic side of Ren varies, so does his heroic side.

Heroic Acts

  • He sometimes cares for Stimpy.
  • In Robin Hoek, In his dream he (as Robin Hoek) saves Maid Moron (Stimpy) from the Sheriff of Nottingham.
  • He redeems himself in the end of Stimpy's Fan Club.
  • He sometimes saves Stimpy when he's in trouble.
  • In Stimpy's First Fart, He brought Stimpy in the house after he was freezed in a cube of ice and showed him Stinky, his fart friend after he found his way home.
  • In The Last Temptation, He saved Stimpy from choking on a lump of chicken by hitting his back.

Trivia

  • Although he's one of the two protagonists of the series, he is sometimes the antagonist.
  • Series creator John K. prided himself on keeping Ren & Stimpy's animation style inconsistent, meaning there is no default appearance for Ren.
  • Frank Welker, Joe Alaskey, Carlos Alazraqui, Pat Fraley, Hal Rayle, Patrick Pinney, Jack Angel, and Townsend Coleman auditioned for the voice of Ren.
