Trivia

Terrence Masson was hired in the summer of 1996 to attempt a CG animation test for pitching Comedy Central; he use Alias on an SGI and hand built all the characters and a background set up, animated at 24fps, ray-traced soft shadows, added film grain and other hand animated little quirks, recorded out to video with 3:2 pull-down, and finished a ten second test (of the boys and Wendy Testaburger talking about kissing down by the pond) in just a few weeks. The test was successful. Terrence had just just accepted a job to go back to ILM and work on the Star Wars Special Edition Trilogy so did not sign on to start the series; but rumor has it that he is the "Terrance" of "Terrance & Phillip".

Good Start!
8 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

South Park is probably the dirtiest animation series you'll ever see. No where you will find any more fart jokes or cussing than here. But I like it since it's so funny! This pilot episode is a nice start to the long-running series. The animation is a bit choppy because Matt and Trey had to do the animation themselves with construction paper, so they did alright.

The first episode called "Cartman Gets An Anal Probe" introduces to the characters including Cartman and Kenny. This simple plot has aliens abducting one of their little brothers and the gang trying to get them back. And of course there must be cows involved.

Overall, this is a pretty good episode to start a series. It's funny, but there are way more funnier episodes to come. I rate his episode 8/10.
