Trivia

Cartman's hair appears most often out of the four main characters. Second is Stan, then Kyle, then Kenny (Kenny's hair appeared once in the movie South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut (1999)) 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 »

Crazy Credits

The tune used for the Braniff logo at the end of the credits is the opening song from Trey Parker and Matt Stone's first film, "Alfred Packer: The Musical" (aka Cannibal: The Musical). Titled "Shpadoinkle Day". "The Sky is blue, and all the leaves are green. The Suns as warm as a baked potato. I think I know exactly what I mean, when I say its a Shpadoinkle day!" See more »

Wake up! South Park rules!
14 August 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

I don't know why this show is getting such negative reviews. A lot of people (adults mainly) keep assuming South Park is nothing more than wall to wall curse words and gross out jokes. Far from it. Sure, they swear and there is an occasional gross out jokes, but the show is also filled with quality and classic humor. The plots are genius. So what if it's offensive. Big deal! For some reason, people assume that cartoons are just for little babies, and some people appear to have difficulty accepting the fact that times have changed and animation is not just for kids anymore. Face it, we are living in an age of shows like South Park. Can't deal with it? Then that's just too bad.
