For those of us who were super excited about the Nickelodeon crossover film from Jared Hess, we've just found out through Consequence of Sound that Ren & Stimpy were denied by Paramount Pictures. They share that the movie will continue with Doug, Rugrats, Ahh! Real Monsters, and more, but Ren & Stimpy got left out.

According to their quote from Screen Geek, this is due to the fact that Ren & Stimpy Adult Party stunk so bad and was killed after 5 episodes, so that's why they want nothing to do with Ren & Stimpy.
Bob Camp, the show's co-creator is quoted saying the following:

I had nothing to do with that one. And now, someone [at Paramount] doesn’t want anything to do with Ren and Stimpy.”
Well, that's depressing.
