Storyline

The curious, adventure-seeking, fourth grade group of boys, Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny, all join in in buffoonish adventures that sometimes evolve nothing. Sometimes something that was simple at the start, turns out to get out of control. Everything is odd in the small mountain town, South Park, and the boys always find something to do with it.

Trivia

Kenny's uncovered face has, to date, been shown five times: "Mr. Hankey, the Christmas Poo" (episode 110, airdate: 7 December 1997) where Kenny is seen singing on the stage at the beginning of the episode; In "Super Best Friends" (episode 504, airdate: 4 July 2001), Stan comes upon a drowned corpse, which he first mistakes for Kyle before saying "Oh my God, they killed Kenny!"; "The Jeffersons" (episode 807 - airdate: 21 April 2004) features an un-jacketed Kenny (wearing an eye-covering masquerade ball masque) posing as Michael Jackson's toddler, Blanket, and - for the first time on the actual series - speaking; "The Losing Edge" (episode 905 - airdate: 6 April 2005) shows Kenny in baseball uniform several times (he's the one with the dark, dirty blonde hair sitting on the right-hand side in Whistlin' Willy's Pizza Gultch); "Lice Capades" (episode 1103, airdate: 21 March 2007) Kenny's face is half shown when he is being sock bathed for a few seconds. He is also shown in the shower with Stan, Kyle and Cartman in the episode Lil Crime Stoppers (episode 706, airdate April 23, 2003) See more »

Goofs

Exactly who is related to who in the Marsh family is never consistent. Early episodes imply that Jimbo and Marvin (Stan's grandfather) are on Sharon's side of the family, whereas more recent ones imply they are on Randy's side. Being on Sharon's side makes sense for Jimbo, as he has a different last name. However, Marvin's last name is, indeed, confirmed to be Marsh. Matt Stone revealed in an interview that Jimbo Kerns is Randy's half-brother. See more »

Quotes

Mrs Crabtree: Hurry up! We're running late.
Stan: Ahh we're always running late, you fat hog.
Mrs Crabtree: What did you say?
Stan: I wish I could go to Prauge!
Mrs Crabtree: Yeah. Me too.

Sadly Misunderstood
10 December 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

South Park is one of the most misunderstood, and also the most intelligent shows on television.

South Park is a satirical look on most anything from Western society - politics, the media, today's youth, celebrities, violence in our society, and much much more. However, instead of presenting these issues as they are, they alternately project them through the exploits of four young boys in South Park, Colorado.

Unfortunately, many people take the show solely at face value, refusing to see the intelligence in it - South Park is admittedly filled with racist and sexist jokes, along with other offensive material. The problem lies within the fact that most people don't seem to understand the concept of satire and self parody.

I admit that I, myself, was one of these people - for years I refused to watch that "garbage," until finally a friend forced me to actually watch a whole episode, and I realized that the show was actually making a point.

So, if you haven't done so, go - watch an episode. You'll feel smarter when you're done.
