Ren & Stimpy Wiki

"Ol' Blue Nose" is the first episode of Season 5 of The Ren & Stimpy Show, which aired on March 18, 1995.



Ren hits Stimpy in the nose (after he spends the last quarter they had on the bus station TV) and he starts to sing with a Frank Sinatra-like voice. Stimpy becomes famous and bossy with Ren, prompting the latter to hit him again until the displeased nose separates itself from Stimpy.


  • This is the first Season 5 episode.
  • Despite being the first episode in Season 5, this episode and "Stupid Sidekick Union" aired two weeks before the final episodes in Season 4 ("Superstitious Stimpy" and "Travelogue").
  • Ren and Stimpy's song, "Come Fry With Me," is an obvious parody of Frank Sinatra's big hit song, "Come Fly With Me".
  • Stimpy becomes a Frank Sinatra-like singer in this episode, nicknamed "Ol' Blue Nose", a parody of Frank Sinatra's nickname, "Ol' Blue Eyes". He was also addressed as "Snotra", a parody of Sinatra.
    • Stimpy's nose turns out to be sentient and really was responsible for Stimpy's singing talent.
  • This episode has Ren and Stimpy switching roles. Stimpy becomes the bossy one when he becomes a famous singer and Ren starts serving him, especially cooking his dinner instead of the other way around like in most other episodes.
  • The monkey wearing a cap giving Stimpy a telegram for his next gig is the same one from To Salve And Salve Not.
  • In this episode, Ren and Stimpy live in their trailer, perhaps their most iconic home.
  • This is the only episode written by Billy West.
