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'.

Crazy Credits

In the episodes 'Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?' and 'Probably', the credits say both Gary Nicholson and Jack Oldman did the voice for Satan's new boyfriend Chris. But it was neither Nicholson nor Oldman who did the voice. It was Dian Bachar, who was in Baseketball, Orgazmo and Cannibal with Trey Parker and Matt Stone. See more »

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.
