Ren and Stimpy fans would like to see co-creator Bob Camp involved with the production of the Ren & Stimpy reboot for Comedy Central.

Bob Camp was a co-founder of and director for Spümcø, the animation studio that created The Ren & Stimpy Show. He played a major role in the studio's creative force until September 21, 1992, when he left to work for Games Productions (a.k.a. Games Animation), the animation studio Nickelodeon initially created to continue work on The Ren and Stimpy show series after Spümcø and co-creator John Kricfalusi had been fired. At Games, Camp was promoted to creative director of The Ren and Stimpy show and supervised work on the episodes made.

" Like all the great Golden-Age Hollywood cartoons, Ren & Stimpy had several key architects. Remove too many and the whole foundation falls apart. Two of those creative forces were Bob Camp and Bill Wray. There are very few scenes throughout the entire series that don’t show either of their influences in some capacity—or in just about every cartoon made since. Wray is inarguably the most important background painter of animation’s modern era. Camp’s storyboarding methods on the show and after have become adopted and ingrained as standard industry practice. Along with their respective animation gigs of late, Bob currently teaches at the School of Visual Arts and Bill exhibits his beautiful fine paintings of Southern California at different galleries. Their contributions are broad and forceful, and therefore impossible to overlook. "
