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.
Four boys. One f**ked up town.

The famous South Park Holiday Special episode features live-action footage after every commercial break of Trey Parker as a newsreader saying "Frizzies at 11." This references a widely-circulated bootleg video of the infamous The Star Wars Holiday Special
(1978) which included "pause button delay" sound bites of a real newscaster saying just that. See more
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.

Matt Stone revealed in an interview that Jimbo Kerns is Randy's half-brother. See more

The Braniff sign at the end of the credits was used for fun in the first episode. Braniff is originally an airline. Trey and Matt got permission to use the sign for every episode. See more
