I didn't actually get to watch the Ren & Stimpy TV show when I was growing up because my parents refused to allow a television in the house, so my appreciation for Ren & Stimpy as a creator driven animated show didn't occur until much later in life.  I'm a particular fan of the episodes created for an older audience that were produced up in Canada.  That being said I did somewhat subvert my parents ruling dictum by purchasing a Sega Game Gear with money I earned working in the strawberry and raspberry patches during the summer. One of the games I spent many hours with was the Ren & Stimpy adventure game that had been ported to the Sega Game Gear.  I doubt it ever occurred to my 12yr old self that one day I'd be waiting in line for a caricature from John K., the creator of that series, but last weekend that's exactly what i was doing at TAAFI 2012.  Now, that caricature is going to become one of my prized animation collection items...  pretty awesome.  I look kind of like a cross-eyed ogre, with some serious canine teeth, don't mess! ;)
