"Jimminy Lummox" is the eighth episode of the third season of The Ren & Stimpy Show, and aired on February 19, 1994.
After Ren does cruel things including prank phone calls, contaminating the tap water, yelling at baby birds, and almost killing a fly by trying to rip one of its wings off, Stimpy lends his conscience, Jiminy Lummox, to Ren to set him right, but it seems to upset him more.
Jimminy appears whenever Ren is mean to Stimpy, and unfortunately, Stimpy is constantly doing things to aggravate Ren, such as using his false teeth to descale fish and washing his collection of celebrity underwear. Sick of the constant pummelings, Ren asks if the conscience if 'he' has a conscience of his own. Jimminy says he does, and shows them Tinker Galoot, which is actually Kowalski in a fairy suit. Ren hits Stimpy, Jimminy hits Ren and Tinker hits Jimminy.
