‘Ren and Stimpy’ Creator Accused of Preying on Teens
Two women have come forward to say that John Kricfalusi, the creator of cult cartoon The Ren and Stimpy Show, groomed them as teenagers, offering them jobs and then sexually harassing them. Robyn Byrd, now 37, says she sent a tape of herself to Kricfalusi at 13, after which he cultivated a relationship with her and later hired her. Another woman shared a similar story. Kricfalusi, who’s widely celebrated as a pioneer in animation, has denied any abuse while admitting that he once had a 16-year-old girlfriend.
