Ren & Stimpy, Game Over on Disc

A Nickelodeon classic and a short-lived TV action-comedy headline this week’s animated home video releases as retail shelves are graced by The Ren & Stimpy Show: Seasons Three and a Half-ish and the first and only season of UPN’s Game Over.

The Ren & Stimpy: Seasons Three and a Half-ish DVD includes all episodes from the third season and half of the fourth. In addition to 17 cartoons, the three-disc Paramount Home Entertainment release features audio commentary from series creator John Kricfalusi and members of his Spumco Animation team. There is also in-character commentary from Ren and Stimpy themselves, as Stimpson J. Cat and Ren Hoek provide their own unique insight into their wacky adventures. The un-rated set offers 373 minutes of cartoon fun and lists for around $30.

After a limited primetime run, Game Over is getting extended play as Anchor Bay releases all six episodes, including one that never made it to air, in a two-disc set. Created by David Sacks and produced by Carsey-Werner-Mandabach, the CG-animated series follows the misadventures of The Smashenburns, a family of video game characters living in suburban America. Patrick Warburton (The Tick, Seinfeld, The Emperor’s New Groove) voices patriarch Rip Smashenburn, a Grand Prix racecar driver, while Lucy Liu (Kill Bill Vol. 1, Charlie’s Angels) plays his tomb-raiding wife, Raquel. Game Over: The Complete Collection features character bios, a trivia game, a "production secrets" featurette, a storyboard-to-layout-to-animation-to-final picture progression reel and crew photos. It carries a suggested price of $19.99.

Also hitting shelves today are two Duel Masters titles form Paramount Home Entertainment and Hasbro. Duel Masters: Go Ahead Make My Duel and Duel Masters: Show Me the Mana bring the hot-selling trading cad game to life with the continuing adventures of Shobu, a spiky-haired boy on a quest to become a Kaijudo Master commanding powerful battle creatures. Retailing for $19.99, each disc includes two bonus episodes, Japanese versions of episodes, blooper reels and a Duel Masters trading card game demo.
