Wild Animal (a cartoon concept)

I just love Ren and Stimpy, and ever since I was little I knew cartoons, maybye even a comic artist was the right path for me. (along with the fact that alot of people tell me I'm excellent at drawing and writing).
So, ever since I started watching Ren and Stimpy, 2 ideas came popping into my head for 15 minute episodes.
Those two episodes were called "Wild Animal" and "Ninja School".
Here is about a 2 to 3 page storyboard sequence, I can't seem to fill out some of the areas.
this is what is "Wild Animal" (atleast the first 2 to 3 minutes anyway, I'll try to write a script) (I'll try to storyboard some of Ninja School and write it up to put on here later).

This is a possible title card, It was cut off a bit on the right, Ren is holding a fly swatter, and his left hand is holding a book (not seen on the image). Stimpy is a tiger.
First sequence of events:
Stimpy is drooling and making sounds (eediot)
Ren slaps himself in the face in disgust, lowering his hand his features flop up after the force of his hand is released from his face. (explaining the horrible grimace in the last square)

Second sequence (4th panel drawing screw-up and more dialouge)
Ren critiscizes Stimpy's behavior ("You are an eediot!")
Stimpy ponders the words..
Stimpy: Aha!
He tells Ren he knows what they should do.
Between clenched teeth he asks what, ("Do....Tell!")
Stimpy's shadow reaces up on a hill pointing at the air (with a sheriff's hat on)
Stimpy: We'll venture into the public woods! (to see the wildlife)
Sequence 3:
Ren reaches over to proud looking stimpy and slaps him
Pulling his arm back he says "That is the..."
He develops a huge head, "STUPIDEST IDEA EVER!!!" he says, spitting all over Stimpy.
Ren's spit covers Stimpy, he leans over and drips the spit into a jar.
I'll try to storyboard some more over the next few days or weeks or so. School is almost out so I'll have more time to focus on it then.
