Trivia

Regarding the language in the episode, Trey Parker has said that they "felt the pressure to live up to Spirit of Christmas", which contains a lot of obscenities, and as a result, they "tried to push things ... maybe further than we should". In particular, Parker said that they felt the need "to put in dildo and every word we can get away with." In contrast, they allowed subsequent episodes to "be more natural", saying that those episodes are "more about bizarre happenings and making fun of things that are taboo", "without just throwing a bunch of dirty words in there."

User Reviews

The first episode of South Park that was ever on T.V.
16 March 2008 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was the episode that established the take-no-prisoners attitude to the gross out humor and obscene language. The episode is mainly about Kyle trying to get his brother Ike back from aliens. The plot is generally clear and makes sense, the characters are well-defined over all, and the episode is funny. The animation is rather rough and obviously unfinished. Some of the colors are wrong and don't look like they usually do and the actions that the characters exhibit are rough and slow. It's poorly animated, but it shouldn't stop a person from totally enjoying it. The humor is dated and doesn't have the same shock that it didn't when it came out and proves that the show has gotten far more foul and sickening since it's debut. Worth seeing just to see how it all started.
