Stimpy absolutely loves living in Hollywood (how he got there can be explained by the episode Stimpy’s Big Day). He also loves being an extremely famous person cat. But soon he starts to miss Ren (as much as Ren misses him) and ends up giving up all of his fame and his boat loads of cash to go back and once again see Ren.


In a continuation of Stimpy’s Big Day, Ren is living his life on his own and starts having memories of his friend, wondering what he is doing now. Stimpy is shown at the Huge Market starring in a Gritty Kitty infommercial to juxtapose an ordinary litter with the Gritty Kitty litter and test it using a horse for the job.

Meanwhile, Ren is in bed staring at the picture of Stimpy on the nightstand and turns out the light. When he tries to go to sleep, he finds Stimpy’s face print on the pillow adjacent to him and moves into the living room to sleep instead. But Stimpy appears everywhere in his presence and Ren freaks out.

Back in Hollywood, Stimpy dives into a pool full of the Gritty Kitty Litter, and back at the trailer house, Ren watches television to keep his mind off his friend. But every channel has Stimpy on it and pretty soon, Ren comes across the channel with Stimpy in the Muddy Mudskipper show.

After the show, Muddy Mudskipper congratulates Stimpy for his performance. But Stimpy is devastated due to the fact that he isn’t with his friend anymore. So he returns home and reunites with Ren, much to the latter’s delight. Ren asks Stimpy what he did with the money, to which Stimpy replies that he gave it all away for him. When Ren realizes this after a few seconds later, he slaps Stimpy senseless and Stimpy smiles as he is back home with his friend.
