"Stimpy's Big Day" and "The Big Shot" are the two segments that make up the first episode of The Ren & Stimpy Show. Unusually for a Ren & Stimpy episode, both segments are two halves of a single half-hour story (hence why they're both sharing the same article here).


Stimpy's Big Day

After winning a Gritty Kitty poem contest, Stimpy goes to Hollywood, leaving Ren feeling lonely.

The Big Shot


Stimpy enjoys living his new life in Hollywood, and becomes a big star, but after a while they both start to miss each other and eventually Stimpy gives up all the money and fame to see Ren again.
