That disgustingly bizarre cat and dog pair that has stolen the hearts of children with a love for the grotesque is now showing up on the chests and backsides of an older crowd.
T-shirts, boxer shorts and posters featuring nose-picking, kitty litter-eating cartoon duo named Ren and Stimpy are being bought by not only youngsters, but also college students and adults.
The T-shirts, in 26 different designs, are produced by Changes, of Queens, N.Y., and are available at area gift shops and department stores for $15 or $16. At Macy's at Marley Station Mall all but one of their shipments of Ren and Stimpy T-shirts sold out -- to 15 to 25-year-olds, according to salesman Sergio Quiroz. Posters of Ren and Stimpy, produced by Western Graphics, are also available at Toys R Us, and sell for $3.79.
