You Eediot! is the debut studio album by Nickelodeon cartoon characters Ren and Stimpy that was released on August 31, 1993.[1] The album featured several popular songs from the series, including the single "Kilted Yaksmen Anthem" (from the episode "The Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen") and "Happy Happy Joy Joy" (from "Stimpy's Invention"). A promotional CD single with the tracks "Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy," "Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen Anthem," "Don't Whiz On The Electric Fence," and "I'm Gonna Be A Monkey" was sent out to radio stations across the country that September for play on the air.[1] The album peaked at #156 on the Billboard 200 in October 1993.[3]

Because the album was released a year after the departure of creator John Kricfalusi, the Ren Höek vocals were re-recorded by Billy West. Bob Camp (who replaced Kricfalusi as showrunner) took his role of Stinky Wizzleteats in the album version of "Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy."

The album cover is a parody of The Beatles album Abbey Road, showing Mr. Horse, Muddy Mudskipper, Stimpy, and Ren walking across the street in the place of the Beatles.[4]
