Parodies of ads for example at some stage   they had an ad advertising how great a log is.
Flat  one colours for the characters and most of the items most of the time.
Dim misty colours. Some vignette backgrounds. Silly.
Ren an angry insane character, Stimpy a dim derpy character.

John kricafalsi went  on to create “Ren & Stimpy “Adult Party Cartoon” in 2003  for 3 episodes  because of his  bitter disappointment how it went out with too much toilet humour, the animation was put on hold.

In conclusion after watching it, for the pitch  not going to include themes for the sake of it.
