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".

the original!
10 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw this episode for the first time almost nine years ago, I knew I was hooked. This is the first episode. It is animated with construction paper instead of the computer program they usually use. Personally, I think that adds to the charm and the nostalgia of this one. There are some cute moments. The aliens and a lot of the gimmicky things Trey and Matt relied on in the first few seasons were introduced. Cartman is unleashed with a vengeance on the viewing public. Stan's girl troubles begin in a very South Park way. Kyle isn't given much to do in this episode, but overall it's a good introduction to the world of South Park. It is a very solid first episode.
