Quotes

Stimpy: Ren! Don't talk like that! Remember the Anthem of the Canadian Kilted Yaksmen!
[Blows a note on his whistle]
Stimpy: Our Country reeks of trees. Our Yaks are really large. And they smell like rotting beef-carcasses. And we have to clean up after them. And our saddle sores are the best. We proudly wear women's clothing and searing sand blows up our skirts. And the buzzards they fly overhead. And poisonous snakes will devour us whole. Our bones will bleach in the sun. And we will probably go to

A "dirty" job...
29 November 2007 | by GuardiaSee all my reviews

In a off-beat tribute to America's founding fore-fathers, Ren and Stimpy (well Stimpy initially, at least) are portrayed here as pioneers, willing to sacrifice their lives for people they "will never meet!", (so says the strange dog/commander guy in their "pep-talk".

They leave behind the rest of the pioneers (who are treated to the attention of the remaining women), to push-on to the final frontier, which is shown to be a mixture of snowy, mountainous, forest, and desert climates. They move through all these areas (atop strange looking yaks), at the mercy of the weather, wildlife and natives. Funny one-shot gags in this section.

Soon enough, things turn downhill, and they are faced with starvation. After several stupid ideas, Ren has a great idea - they then tap into one of Canada's natural resources for survival. It's stupid, illogical and a good bit of humour.

The highlight of this episode is the musical ensemble that finishes it - another satirical take on patriotism and colonialism. It's sung in that classic anthem-style, but we are treated to a massive dressing-down of the pioneer spirit. (But they seem to have censored the word "hell" from the lyrics).

Great episode.
