Shoot! This is nearly two years to late and nine trillion dollars
short. Ren & Stimpy Classic were worth not asking to be killed for.
Anywhat, that man is known merely as Mr. Pipe. And he wears the
"rubber nipples" on his kneecaps. Now here's five dollars boys.

He also appears in the episode where Ren dresses up as a mouse.
Some quote line like "Epp, I tell you! Epp!" Another episode
concerning the escape from the Dog Pound also features a Connie.

Of course he's known as "Mr Pipe"! Was "Bob" credited as J.R. "Bob" Dobbs
for his cameos in any of his Z movies? Well? Just watch Ren&Stimpy's Big
Baby Scam. It's not just rubber neeples anymore.

I am not totally certain of this, but I believe that "Husband" and
"Wife," the '50s suburbanite characters from the original Ren & Stimpy
Show, are not really meant to be based on Bob and Connie. They are based
more on the human characters that would show up in animated cartoons
which are centered around anthropomorphic animals. From the first "Tom &
Jerry" cartoons on up to some of the WB shorts of the '40s and '50s to
Hanna-Barbera TV cartoons of the '60s, the humans that are shown from
about the waist down are a cliche. And of course, every TV Dad in the
'50s had a pipe.

I gotta talk to Vincent Waller and/or John K. about this.

Anyway, here are the cartoons that "Husband" and "Wife" (these are the
names used at Spumco for those characters) show up in:

"The Boy Who Cried Rat"
"Rubber Nipple Salesmen"
"Big Baby Scam."

All three were written by Vincent Waller. Waller co-directed "Rubber
Nipple" (with John K.) and was the sole director on "Big Baby Scam."

Hope this was of help!
