Michael John Kricfalusi (; born September 9, 1955), better known as John K., is a Canadian animator, voice actor, creator of the Nickelodeon cartoon series The Ren & Stimpy Show and founder of the animation company Spümcø. After being fired from The Ren & Stimpy Show by Nickelodeon in 1992, Kricfalusi went on to direct and produce animated television commercials and music videos for entertainers such as the singer Björk and comedy rock duo Tenacious D. In the late 1990s he created the first cartoons made exclusively for the Internet: The Goddamn George Liquor Program and Weekend Pussy Hunt. He returned to television with The Ripping Friends and the adult animation spin-off Ren & Stimpy “Adult Party Cartoon”.

Milkshake! Bopping About - Sexual abuse allegations - Netflix

Animators Robyn Byrd and Katie Rice alleged in a BuzzFeed report on March 29, 2018, that Kricfalusi sexually harassed and groomed them for sexual abuse while they were underage. Byrd said that she was in a sexual relationship with Kricfalusi in 1997 at age 16, and flew to California to live with him when she was 17. Rice said that Kricfalusi flirted with her and made overt sexual comments towards her since she was 14, and was sexually harassed by him when she turned 18 and began working at his animation studio, Spümcø. Documents they had saved from those years corroborate their stories, and several people who worked with Kricfalusi referred to his sexual harassment as an open secret in the animation industry. Kricfalusi was also alleged to possess child pornography on his computer. Kricfalusi's lawyer confirmed that “for a brief time, 25 years ago, he had a 16-year-old girlfriend”, but denied that Kricfalusi's “avid pursuit” of Rice was sexual harassment or that he had ever possessed child pornography. Kricfalusi published an apology to the women and his fans for his behavior, which was criticized as a non-apology and an attempt to deflect the blame.
