Stimpy is the lovable idiot of the Ren and Stimpy duo. The innocent simpleton cat who has someone found himself paired with a fairly nasty dog. The fact that he is the larger of the duo adds to the comedy, and is something of a staple for old comedy duos. Billy West famously said he based the voice on Larry Fine, which I find hilarious. The Stooge that often gets overlooked because he is less flashy is actually pretty hilarious and nuanced, and a crazy homage to use here. But it works. I wanted to focus on the characters foolish but good hearted nature here.
