Background: Spümcø, Inc. (or simply "Spumco") was an American animation production company that was founded in 1988 by the Ren & Stimpy creator, John Kricfalusi along with Lynne Naylor, Bob Camp and Jim Smith. Shortly after that, the studio pitched it's first production to Nickelodeon, The Ren & Stmpy Show and premiered on August 11, 1991. In September 1992, Nickelodeon fired the company due to production delays and Games Animation (now "Nickelodeon Animation Studio") was formed shortly after and Bob Camp took over the production on the show. Years later after that, the company went on to produce the other programs such as The Ripping Friends for Fox Kids and later brought back Ren & Stimpy under Ren & Stimpy: Adult Party Cartoon which premiered in June 2003 on TNN (now "Spike"). On July 18, 2005, John Kricfalusi shut down the studio shortly after a lawsuit fired by Carbunkle against it in the Canadian court system.


1st Logo
(August 10, 1990-May 23, 1993)

Nicknames: "Drooling Boy," "Jimmy the Idiot Boy"

Logo: Over a dark brown background, we see a drawing of a boy's head, drooling. On the top-left of the screen is the text "SPÜMCØ" in colorful letters with two yellow
Spumco (1990-1993) umlauts above the "U" , and a line in the "O". Underneath the company name is the slogan "The Danes call it Quality" in blue, with quotation marks in "Quality", making the message "SPUMCO, The Danes call it "Quality".

Trivia: The boy depicted is another one of John Kricfalusi's characters, named Jimmy the Idiot Boy. He was originally going to make a Nicktoon about this character, but didn't want to lose the rights, so he used Ren and Stimpy instead. Jimmy would eventually be seen in one of Kricfalusi's other shows The Ripping Friends.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Plays over the ending theme. On the uncut version of "Big House Blues" pilot, it has a short guitar riff playing over the logo.

Availability: It was seen on the first 2 seasons of The Ren & Stimpy Show on Nicktoons. However, it's currently unknown when the show will air on Teen Nick as part of The 90's Are All That. It is also saved and survived on the Seasons 1 & 2 DVD box set and VHS releases of the show.

Scare Factor: Low.



2nd Logo
(September 22, 2001-October 20, 2004)

Nicknames: "One Girl and Two Boys", "The George Liquor Logo"

Logo: Against a light blue/dark yellow background, three of John K's characters (Jimmy the Idiot Boy from the first logo, Sody Pop, and George Liquor) are seen on the
Spumco (1999-2004) right side of the screen behind a light yellow starburst, and in the same font as logo 1, is the word "SPÜMCØ" on the top corner of the screen.

Trivia: The character at the front is an R&S recurring character George Liquor, who appears on the episodes "Dog Show" and "Man's Best Friend" (the latter was a banned episode of the show until Ren and Stimpy's Adult Party Cartoon premiered).

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the show.

Availability: Appeared on The Ripping Friends and Ren and Stimpy's Adult Party Cartoon. Neither air on TV anymore, but the latter is on DVD as The Lost Episodes and on iTunes.

Scare Factor: Low to medium.
