Violence & Gore

  • 8/10
  • There is often graphic violence, however it is a cartoon, and is not overly disturbing. It is also played for laughs, and over the top.
  • Violence can be quite gory however its usually comical, and usually over the top.
  • Scenes of torture, although these are usually for comic effect.

  • Cartman is a psychopath and sometimes says very violent things.

  • In "Scott Tenorman Must Die", Scott's parents are murdered and turned into chili.
  • In "Cartman Sucks", Butters is sent to camp and is blown up.


  • 9/10
  • The show is controversial for swearing.
  • Fuck is used often, but is bleeped when used on TV, and is used uncensored on DVD and online. 'Shit' and milder profanities are heard occasionally.
  • In one episode, the word "shit" is said 162 times. This is meant as a satire to the over-censorship of television.
  • In many cases, the show uses profanity to mock the opinions of people.
  • "Nigger" is said a few times in the episode "Krazy Kripples" but not in the derogatory sense. In another episode it is said once, in that episode it is shown as very inappropriate and comes across as a negative thing, so this would discourage kids to say it rather than encourage them.
