Kyle can't keep his new elephant at home because it's too big. After learning about genetic engineering in class, however, he finds a solution to his problem: splice the genes from his elephant with Cartman's pot-bellied pig to produce miniature pet elephants. A visit with local mad scientist Dr. Mephisto convinces Kyle that splicing won't work, so with Chef's help he decides to try more traditional methods. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

Did You Know?


The scene in the cafeteria, in which the four boys are annoyed by Pip, is a cut scene from the original version of South Park: Cartman Gets an Anal Probe (1997); as such, the animation in that individual scene is actually traditional paper cutout stop motion, while the animation throughout the rest of the episode is done with computers.

Dr. Mephesto: I'm sorry kids, but pig and elephant DNA just won't splice. Haven't you ever heard that song by Loverboy?
Kyle Broflovski: What song is that?
Dr. Mephesto: [singing] Do do do do, Pig and elephant DNA just won't splice!

"That'll Do, Pig And Elephant! That'll Do!"
25 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, this is definitely one of South Park's most finest episodes, and it is the very first one to introduce Dr. Mephisto. After another classic episode of South Park called "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride!" was released, The Once "Not So Popular" South Park Series because a world wide phenomenon and people have being crying out for more and more episodes ever since! If you have not seen the episode before, than I can tell you a little bit about it. The episode evolves around Cartman's Pig And Kyle's Elephant who are both entered in a science project, but are forced to make a baby in order for The Boys to create a Pot Bellied Pig-Elephant to win the contest! There is also a cameo of Elton John as well, who also appears in The "Chef Aid" Episode! So, if you have not seen it yet, then go right forward!

Overall Rating: 10/10! (A Classic!)
