Great Final "Draft"...
25 November 2007 | by GuardiaSee all my reviews

"In the Army" sees the two, well, joining the army. After a brief induction ceremony (with reference to the head-shaving in "Full Metal Jacket"), the two find themselves on barracks dealing with a hard-ass Drill-Sargent who is barely understandable due to his heavy (Texan?) accent.

Of course, the two make terrible soldiers, and Stimpy (although unquestioningly follows commands), manages to wind-up in trouble with Ren, who is constantly looking for short-cuts in the training. Their punishments are always some form of peeling something (potatoes, watermelons, and some even stranger "supplies").

This episode is a pretty good take on the old misfits-join-the-army routine, and Ren & Stimpy certainly add their trademark to the situation. Pretty good laughs here.

"Powdered Toastman" is a irreverent take on the Superman character. Comprised of a hulk-like body, and some slices of (powdered?) toast for a head, he flies backwards towards various incidents that get radioed to him via his various receivers (one of which is his tongue!).

His methods are hilarious, (just how he saves a kitten from oncoming traffic is very disturbing), and the addition of Frank Zappa for the pope seems oddly appropriate. Oh, and Ren & Stimpy only have a brief cameo, who require the breakfast-"seasoning" services of PTM. Great laughs here in this episode.
