The latest creation from Spumco's John K. (Ren and Stimpy). Crag, Rip, Slab, Chunk and Jimmy The Idiot Boy, their trusty sidekick. Four macho men in tights who fight to save our planet from bland, harmless educational toys and other evils!

"It's about the world's most manly men, who win their battles through sheer, raw manliness and willpower. They don't have superpowers, but they have the suits. They think superheroes are wimps because they have to cheat to win their battles--how manly are you if you have a superpower? You could beat the crap out of anyone! That's not very manly. A manly guy will take the pain along with the victory. It's got to hurt to win--that's The Ripping Friends". -- John K.
