Compared are the shortened version of "I Love Chicken / Powdered Toast Man vs. Waffle Woman" on the US DVD by Paramount and the uncut version on the German DVD by Turbine Classics.
3 cuts = 53 seconds
The Ren & Stimpy Show is one of the most over the edge cartoon shows ever. So it's no surprise that Nickelodeon US - similar to Disney - reacted to the feedback of the audience and made a few cuts. On top of that, later broadcasts on Spike TV contained further alterations. More cuts were made and, if required, some scenes had a higher frames per second rate in order to reach the regular length for syndication. These versions are the available ones on the so-called "uncut" US-DVDs by Paramount.
Surprisingly enough, the German broadcasts back in the 90s were amlmost uncut, only a few scenes with too explicite footage were removed.
For the uncut box the comparisons have been made with, Turbine Germany used the cut (but restored) US masters and the original German versions in order to put the longest versions possible on the German DVD set. Missing scenes in the US Versions have been filled with the German version (including the German dub), missing scenes in the German versions have been filled with the US Version (and they got subtitled in German, if necessary). The result is the longest version available of every single episode.
I Love Chicken
At the dinner table, Stimpy informs Ren he knew exactly what he was thinking, that he was worried about the portion which he didn't have to do. Then he overturns the spoon with corn bread in front of Ren on the table and adds a bag of chicken giblets. Ren almost pukes and pushes it away with disgust.
While Stimpy is sleeping in his bed, he gets some kind of smell in his nose. This wakes him up and he says something smelled good. He turns around to his married chicken and wants to know if the chicken was hungry, too. But the chicken doesn't respond and Stimpy says how cute it was that the chicken was sleeping like a dog. But there's something he doesn't know yet: his chicken was stolen by Ren and put in the oven which explains the delicious smell. Then Ren replaced it with a football and pulled up the blanket in order to deceive Stimpy. Now, Stimpy is curious so he gets out of bed to figure out what Ren was doing in the kitchen .
Powdered Toast Man vs. Waffle Woman
Waffle Woman tells Powdered Toast Man she was expecting him if he had the guts while tossing the bed with the kid in it to the front. The kid panics and runs to Powdered Toast Man in order to beg for help.
