I was a big fan of the Ren and Stimpy cartoon when it came out in the 90′s. ”These hands” was a catch phrase around my family during the run of the Ren & Stimpy Show. Along with Calvin and Hobbes and Adventure Time, I put it in my top 3 toons that are just as funny to adults as children (sorry, SpongeBob).
But before creator John Kricfalusi entertained us with Ren Höek and Stimpson J. Cat he created a boardgame aimed at educating youths on the dangers of drinking and drug use. I am assuming that to win the game you had to become a “Sun Trooper”.
The Sun Trooper’s Creed
I,______________,am a Sun Trooper and it is my responsibility to be the best I can be. In the heroic tradition of Captain Quantum, I am armed with Love & Compassion, Strength, Courage Knowledge, and Honor. With a clear mind and healthy body, I pledge to complete my mission: To Protect Myself, My Family, and My Friends From The Evils Of Alcohol and Drug Abuse.
With the love and support of my family, my concern of my friends and community, my respect for the law, and my appreciation for all the good things that life has to offer, I promise to remain drug free, to share the knowledge I have about the dangers of alcohol and drugs, and to help others that are victims of substance abuse.
