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 <>

Cartman: If some girl tried to kick my ass, I'd be like, "Hey. Why don't you stop... dressing me up like a mailman... a-and making me dance for you... while you go and... smoke crack in your bedroom... and have sex with... some guy... I don't even know. On my dad's bed."
[Long pause]

Very good first season episode
22 September 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Ah, these old season 1 South Park episodes bring me nostalgia(even though I only started watching the series back in 2002).The show changed as the series progressed.It is now more of a political satire than a stupid funny animated comedy(I love both).An Elephant Makes Love To A Pig is a very good episode of Season 1.In this episode, Kyle gets a pet elephant but his mom will not let him keep it in the house.So he decides to make small pig-elephants to keep in the house, so he decides to genetically mutate it with Cartman's pig.He does this for a science fair to beat these other kids who want to genetically mutate a human.They try to mutate the pig but decide not to after seeing how weird the man who runs the mutation plant is.So Chef decides to help them make their creature using sex.Meanwhile, Stan is being beaten by his sister Shelly.The other boys make a mutation of Stan(who'se blood their father, the man who runs the mutation place took).However the mutation goes wrong and there is a half-human half-mutant version of Stan who goes on a rampage through town.Stan is getting blamed for the havoc and the boys must stop them, but not before Stan tries to make his mutant clone teach his sister a lesson.This is a very funny and good early episode!
