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

In the original unaired version of the pilot, Trey Parker is credited as "Tupac Schwartz" and Matt Stone is credited as "M.C. Goldstein". 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 »

Probably one of the funniest, most irreverent shows on television - I love it!
18 August 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

When "South Park" first came out I ignored it and thought it was another passing fad for young kids. I never gave it a chance. I figured it was crude for the sake of being crude and didn't watch more than five minutes of an episode.

Then I saw the movie, which I thought was just about one of the funniest things ever. "Uncle F***a" had me in tears. "Bigger Longer & Uncut" is one of the most consistently funny films I've ever seen, and even as a musical/animation it worked very well.

So I gave the TV show another chance. I fell in love with it. I watch it much more now. Sure, it is very crude, sometimes a bit too much so. It's immature and juvenile. But it's also very clever.

Trey and Matt get away with loads of stuff other people could never get away with on TV. I don't know how they keep pushing the boundaries. One episode of "South Park" had so much swearing, a profanity was outlawed from public television "indefinitely." Sometimes the gags are kind of lame because they are so juvenile, but for the most part it's really funny. Matt and Trey basically do all the voices including celebrity impersonations.

I think this is a really clever, really self-satirical show that's sorely needed during times as restrictive as these. With "South Park" pushing the boundaries on public TV we can all sleep safely at night knowing our nation's level of tolerance is in good hands.
