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

Traditionally, an animated series takes 8 to 12 months to be completed, making it almost impossible to address current events. In the case of "South Park", computer animating the show has afforded the creators lee-way to put certain episodes together quickly (such as -"Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut" - 22 April 1998), sometimes resulting in identifiable changes between the episode and its promo. Most notable have been what are known as the "11th hour episodes", episodes put together mere days - and sometimes hours - before airtime. These include, but are not limited to:
  • "Quintuplets 2000" a.k.a "Janet Reno in a Bunny Suit" (airdate: 26 April 2000): This episode mirrored the U.S. government's removal of Elian Gonzalez from the home of his Miami relatives, an event which occurred three days prior to air.
  • "Trapper Keeper" (airdate: 15 November 2000), which parodied the scandal of the 2000 presidential election, which happened a week earlier.
  • "It Hits the Fan" (airdate: 20 April 2001): Numerous story changes kept the episode in production all the way up to the airing. Upon its original airing, the show was notably lacking in numerous completed sound effects. Most obvious was the lack of sound during Kenny's death.
  • "Osama bin Laden has Farty Pants" (airdate: 7 November 2001): Airing weeks after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the USA, this episode became one of the first fictional series to address the matter.
  • "It's Christmas in Canada" (airdate: 17 December 2003), which acknowledged the capture of Saddam Hussein a mere four days after it took place.
  • "Best Friends Forever" (airdate: 30 March 2005), which parodied the media coverage of the Terry Schiavo case.
"Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow" (airdate: 19 October 2005). This episode was inspired by the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, noting that people blamed the government what happened and how long it took for aid to arrive. It was also stated in the season's commentary that it was a parody of the movie "The Day After Tomorrow (2004)". See more »

Goofs

In early seasons, whenever the children enter the cafeteria and Chef greets them with the "Hello there children!" line, notice his name on his apron is spelled in lowercase 'chef', but the next scene when he is speaking with the children, and the focus is on him behind the servery, notice his name is spelled in uppercase 'CHEF'.

User Reviews

Extremely offensive, and beneath it lies huge laughs...
24 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

Matt and Trey need to be commended for this series. It takes shots at EVERYTHING, and it does it in really questionable taste. But that's why I love it. Because, beneath the crude language and vulgar humor, South Park contains one of most biting satires in existence. This show is hilarious, constantly taking current events, such as Stem Cell Research, or fads, like the infamous Poke'mon craze, and spinning their own view on them. Thank you, Matt Stone and Trey Parker. Thank you.

BOTTOM LINE: One show I try to never miss on Wednesdays. This series gives me something to look for.
