Ren and Stimpy: Pat the Stimpy
This may be one of the funniest things I have ever seen.
I think most everyone is familiar with the "interactive" children's book, "Pat the Bunny," which debuted in 1940 and featured elements like soft "rabbit fur" and a mirror.
The Ren & Stimpy Show, a "Nicktoon" that debuted in 1991, was great fun because it did not play by the rules. John Kricfalusi's wild characters and their twisted shenanigans no doubt made Nickelodeon nervous.
My favorite episode was "Space Madness," in which Ren the Chihuahua went off the deep end as only he could.
"Pat the Stimpy" debuted in 1993. I bought this for $1 at Books-A-Million many years ago. It is missing the sock feature, but I did not care.
